On today's show, Susie looks at what's happening to "trans consciousness" these days. Like early gay liberation, which was smeared by vicious right-wingers but hailed by ultra-politically correct left leaners, the search for explaining transgender is on. And because it can be hard for the general public to make sense of real people who are trans, many love having a celebrity in the picture to help them embrace a confusing idea. Caitlin Jenner is our new trans role model, but Susie has a beef with America's choice of Caitlin to represent the trans community. So today she has a great story to share, one she wrote about gender and all its complexities. It's from her book The Sexual State of the Union.
