    That article about Jenner and Dolezal is an ignorant piece of trash. The author doesn’t understand the biology of trans people & doesn’t seem to grasp the concept that being black in America is about more than genes.

      I’d be interested to hear more about the biology of trans people. Frankly, I thought that the point of the article/essay was that “gender” and “race” are both cultural constructs, but we assume that gender has a kind of flexibility or mutability that race lacks. Race is certainly about more than genes, but so is gender, no?
