I get this list via digest at midnight, so I don't know who to thank for the quick turn around validating "mom, I need to be a girl." I just came home and found the acceptance email here. I had another hormonal night and was up all night, so I read and proofed another book I'd already scanned. It's in the Step 1 queue, "Becoming a Visible Man" by Jamison Green. This is another transsexual book and an excellent read. Starts off grabbing you as he begins a college lecture and discussing the difference between sex, gender, and sexual orientation. Green weaves his personal story amid politics, history, surgery information, hormones, family and community, and a strong feminist theory--coming from someone who is now a man, who still sees that the world view of men being superior to women and this group over that group over another group, and all these class and caste systems are messing this world up pretty badly. It's a great for learning about adult female (was butch lesbian but knew that wasn't correct fit) person who became a physical man. Historically, most books have been about men becoming women, this one is woman to man. I highly recommend it to anyone interested. As far as quality of scan, it got a KES 99.22 rating, I checked all the other words which were acceptable, cleaned up the scannos, was meticulous with the biblio and index so you needn't worry about them. Any takers for a validation? I'm now putting that collection on hold (I think) and will do other books for the next few weeks. A mystery due for me at the library any day now! Thanks everyone!
