    So, I love Robin (not Robyn) Morgan but it’s important to note, I think, that she is transphobic and there are women who come to this site who might not want to read anything she’s involved with. (My affection for Ms Morgan is in no way agreement with her transphobia – I really wish she’d change her mind and do it very publicly.)

    Evidence of transphobia: her book, “Going Too Far” and other statements she has made.

    Gloria Steinem has made transphobic comments in the past but may have changed her view.

    Thanks for making a a PSA re Morgan’s (and Steinem’s) history of transphobia, MrRabbit. There’s nothing transphobic in this particular interview, but I can understand why some readers might like to avoid it on principle.

    Well put it there quick, or else you’ll confuse everybody else who looks at the sidebar comments widget!
