I need to stop letting so many days go by between posts. Interest seems to wane so fast on the Internet! So, a less labor-intensive post today. 🙂
After posting about Jenny Finney Boylan the other day, I went ahead and ordered a used copy of her first book, She’s Not There: A Life In Two Genders. It arrived yesterday (free two-day shipping via Amazon Prime, yay!). The book is in very good condition for a used book — I’m fussy about book condition — and I can’t wait to get into it. Now I just need to finish the book I’m currently reading (Max Barry’s Lexicon), as I hate leaving a book unfinished.
In the meantime, I’ve also gotten lost in PubMed. You know, in that same way you can get lost in Wikipedia? One article leads to another, which leads to another, and suddenly an hour is gone and I’ve got nothing to show for it but a bunch of saved PDFs. Trying to work on more of the Science! posts. Filtering, categorizing, and knowing when to stop are the hard parts. There’s a lot of research on the transgender brain, though; I’m thinking that might be the next thing to tackle.
What science-related questions about transgender are you curious about? I’m always keen for new things to research.
