This controversial book is a veritable 'no one here gets out alive'. Radical feminists, religious conservatives and transgender theorists all come in for criticism as Conrad expounds the idea that the transgender community needs to shore up the transgender claim to womanhood. Conrad argues that what is needed is a rational, scientific explanation that goes beyond 'gender is whatever you identify as'.
No doubt readers will have strong feelings about Conrad's own theory of transgender womanhood, but whatever your reaction this short book will stay with you a long time. Not only that, but it will help you to understand why a transgender woman indeed has the right to call herself a woman.
