ezs note:  Believe it or not, I do respect Germaine Greer's work, despite our differences.  However, I would respectfully suggest that, for a start, she read transgender history in Wikipedia.  From ancient Assyria to the present day, transgender history is part of history, no matter how we wish to cover it up.

"She had no preconceived notion of backward or primitive, no prejudice equal to my blind assumption of superiority.  I stopped trying to teach her and began to learn from her instead.  (italics mine)

Call the two Senators (remember, there are two from every state) and let him/her know that you are AGAINST the nomination.   If you are a retired or active servicemember, it's  that much better.  Contact www.senate.gov to get further information.
