"People get those confused but but just to give listeners. A sample of the kind of language in in in the way This culture thinks this woman's name is sarah banescu. Never heard of her. She continues her review of your book. What follows this moment of duplicitous. Soapbox oration is the full fledged gender of the book itself so ugly and poorly in of trans men and even ses woman women in my feminist nerva tay. I was shocked to observe the self identified woman rider choosing to maim rather than bask in what the policies that protect trans people stand. Offer her in the way of gender breathing room. A world where one's totality is affirmed. No matter one's appearance a world where her body's medical needs can be met even if she is incarcerated instead shire chooses to double down on her black and white political beliefs and even her own gender throughout gender. That complex amalgam that the late trans historian. Jan morris wants described so tenderly quote. It is soul. Perhaps it is talented is taste at his environment is how one feels. It is light and shade. It is inner music. It is the essential -ness of oneself those quote but all schreier can see their own imminent extinction as a white conservative ses gender woman in this nation under overdue strain and then finally she quotes you. And then says shriver's worst fears articulated. It becomes clear that this new wave of anti trans activism is largely made up of ces gender woman. Who's chokehold on victim identity exceeds anything ever seen queer and trans community so abigail. Are you just a white cisgender woman Afraid that your chokehold. On victimhood status is being taken away by some other victims group. You know this is. What the the attackers do. They never actually touch any of the arguments in the book. Never that any of those facts never any of the studies of which there are many many cited. it's all just an attack ad hominem attack on me now. I kept politics out of the book. I kept it out of the book for a reason I don't think they have any place. This was an investigation of a medical phenomenon. Which i wanted to know why girls were doing this. I had no political and in fact to this day. I don't have policy prescriptions for how this should be handled. What medication should be available. Or when i just simply investigated and found that a lot of girls were suddenly identifying. It didn't seem to be traditional. Fauria did seem to be socially influenced. And i pointed out when i did my investigation. I learned that there were very few Medical safeguards in place for these girls in case they were wrong about yourself diagnoses. So that's that's all. The book is An end there's actually you know if you read it there's very little to take issue with So perhaps that's why they all feel the need to attack me personally But but there's nothing in. The book has been run over by many many medical not only doctors and experts in gender dis but no one has found any factual error in the booker political claim. Or anything like that..

That's when i realized like oh this is cooking and i had never been in a position where i'm trying to generally feed someone else with love and i just want to nurture them and cooking for my wife was the best and then cooking while she was nursing had new meaning. Now it's feeding hugo and the strangest thing has happened. I now have learned a different way. Of course that i never thought that i never would. It's now changed. How i wanna cook in general.

"Who got it was pretty much luck of the draw. But this time they're trying to be more selective. The drug is intended mostly for people over 65 or those with underlying health issues. But you know, even limiting it to that group still leaves a huge shortage so Boxes doctors trying to figure out who would most likely end up in the hospital if they didn't get the drug. Trying to prevent those admissions is really, really important for us as we face this huge surge coming at us as well. I asked her. What other criteria is, she could add to identify people who are most likely to end up in the hospital. I think the other criteria and and this is backed up by the CDC data are non white race or Hispanic as well. Yeah, because the CDC says about half of all people in this country who end up in the hospital and in fact to die of covered 19 are people of color. Fox says she and her colleagues really also want to make sure that people who need it most are not put it a disadvantage. How effective is the drug? Well, here's the thing Scott. The vast majority of people who get infected, fight the virus off without help from a drug. So if you give it to like 100 people, you might prevent seven hospitalizations. And even though the drug itself is free infusions cost a lot of money. Many Medicare patients will face a $60 co pay. Private insurance companies will each have their own plans for who's going to have to pay and how much and where would you go to even get an infusion? While many hospitals air setting up separate infusion sites because they don't want their emergency runs overrun with people who are sick with covered 19 since they're already overrun, But for example, here in Washington, D. C. The MedStar hospitals have converted a facility at one hospital for this specific use. They've instituted extra infection control precautions because, remember, these patients all have active cases of covert 19. I spoke to Dr Princey Kumar, who is an infectious disease doctor at Medstar. When a patient arrives, we will actually escort the patient up to the dedicated infusion center and once a impressionist and we will actually we escort the patient back so the patient doesn't want the accident, the around the hospital so even simple logistics like that needed to be worked out. And Scott, You know, everyone is bracing for bumps in the road is this kind of treatment rolls out nationwide, But at the same time doctors air grateful to have something else that's potentially helpful as we all wait for a vaccine to become available, Hopefully, by the end of December or or not so long thereafter, NPR's science correspondent Richard Harris, thanks so much for being with us Any time.

"I've written a thesis on my Gary. CATES is wrong and and then I deleted that I am the Chidi of this podcast. It's it is true but at least as you were self aware enough to delete it yourself yeah. You didn't have to hire an immortal being pointed out to you. The reason why cates doesn't think they're trans is because his sources for what it means to be trans come from contemporary sexologists psychologists so this book is published in Nineteen ninety-five to cates therefore determining whether they always trans is a matter of establishing well they meet diagnostic criteria for an illness if they encases words exhibit the kind of dysphoric behavior that would lead physician today toward a diagnosis of transsexualism. There's an expression on my face that you can't see but I imagine you share have a guest how back we ought to sit here and science together making a face. Could we've done that. Let's move on and I. I really struggled with this a lot because I read a lot about this. It kind of isn't even with two bunking cates doesn't know what being trends is. He caught proceed to them make statements about it his entire argument board and wrong. Thank you very much listening to take his argument at face value for Ervin's. I'm sorry but I guess we will kate says that transsexuals know they're trans from childhoods so they despise genitalia and that they feel trapped in the room buddy. There is no evidence. Kate says don't experience any of this therefore not trans. I'm calling shenanigans. It is true that there is no way in this is we have where they all talks about how they identified as a woman non binary whatever in childhood were down. I really hate my painters but I would like for us to imagine exactly how would have that written down in a sauce. I mean they wrote a fictionalized version of their childhood where they were assigned. Female at bus which which in terms of I identified as a woman as a child is about conclusive as you're gonNA get in this kind of situation as as you were just pointing out yes. We're not going to get evidence that cates once said there are largely restricted to the sort of narrative. Given a main tools is either their memoirs all lead us. They've route two friends with their presenting himself as having been assigned female both having this this story when I was I had to live as a man for a long time because my parents led to raise me that way but I'm a woman. I'm going back to that now like yeah. That's a very coherent way to conceptualize how life they developed theology about how when they go to heaven. After they die they will lose all sex characteristics and then it'll be great like that's not definitely for you but I think declaring that. There's absolutely no hint of this. Fauria in the papers is wrong yeah. So what else have you kate's. Such diagnostic criteria is only the surface of case still something Donald Translator. They're so much going on here so I'm going to really long now. Kate says the problem with Pinning Asaka sexual disorder on film is that it minimizes his own will and cognition in the process of his own gender transformation interpreting tone as a transsexual rents him fundamentally passive his gender transformation is saying something that happened to him the result of the genetic defect or childhood experiences rather than a process that he freely brought upon himself as a mature adult instead of an active intellect aware of his choices and even trying to change changes society don't as portrayed in this interpretation as victim of an illness whose fate is to suffer cates cates case. Excuse me would you write a book bows Physics Nar because you don't understand anything about physics. I presume monitoring. So why did you read about as we go through that in a lot of depth that when court but I don't think it's necessarily worthwhile I mean it is very clear. The cates understanding all of transgender identities. This is as we've said completely wrong and based on very limited sources that had a very specific understanding what being trans walls that in the modern day. I eat less than thirty years later we have moved away from almost completely having been in gender therapy that is phrased slightly too strong but I agree with you. Mostly yeah like like it's either. He has a completely shallow understanding of being trans is reflecting the inadequacy of where he decided to look to for authority on this matter when I think he's also interesting about his understanding down is that I think on some level barricades and I have similar reactions to these like you're nine hundred seventy nine hundred eighty nine thousand nine hundred ninety s six logistics. We're having the same reaction that the medical discourse that built up around it's the transgender experience in the last like century roughly is completely inadequate to encapsulate the lives of the people that reports to explain and their active involvement with their own identities entities and there are in cultural moments and what is in fortunate is that instead of questioning the authority of the medical establishment talk about this he accepts the narrative wholeheartedly heartedly and questioned whether it can be applied to down case has a lot of respect and empathy and I think inside into live I relied very heavily on its work and I think he makes excellent points about this person but in basically declaring that it's impossible to to respect down and understand them is trans he refuses to extend that respect and empathy to any although transpose and yeah yeah that was a really good encapsulation of the faces that we've been making for the past twenty minutes and a lot of the feelings that I've been having is you've been describing this. You read that quote to me months ago. Maybe maybe and I was upset by then. I'm much more upset by it now. Having spent several hours with Dell we've been yeah and I'm sure you spent a lot more time with them. That would've really hard and I think it's important to stress that. Even his book is like twenty five years old. Even another nine thousand nine hundred were very different time for transpeople. Gary cates had access to all the voices and he completely fails to utilize them or to treat them as a source of authority even even when they're in lives there is like one or two instances where he briefly mentions quotes by Trans Women that he does not go into their understanding of their lives. That's it or does he also think that those women are like I'm thinking particularly of the transact sandy stern who is fantastic thing and of the biography Jan Morris who is a travel writer and translator articulate person does he think that those two women on just driven by a compulsion in an illness and do not actively engage with their societies in their lives like does he think that because I don't think that he really dolls Dell's but he needs to work through some stuff because that's the narrative that is putting onto the world so to sum up the issue is birth that the authority then then and still somewhat now with the medical establishment and that individual scholars appealing to that authority lastly WANNA point out that by defining transgenderism arisen by contemporary diagnostic criteria cases created a standard for being here real trans person that can only be met by modern day person who sits Donna Psychiatrist's office and submit psychoanalysis and even then not all of them because we can't gather the data necessary to make a diagnosis according according to this criteria we talked about like let's try and think of somewhere in their memoirs where they described how much they hated their penis cases effectively destroyed any possibility of situating trans experiences in history. You know he has what he means to not declared trans history as null and void and that's not good enough so do better and talk to transpeople cannot yeah it is incredibly regulators appointing to see the scholarship he's doing this and especially what he said about how cates who's so close in in a Lotta ways to a really interesting and valuable examination of downs Trans Experience Raines and particularly given the discussion the weight had about you're with this person could be articulated as a trans woman in Oregon a monitoring person or something else at the pots of the literature that you have talked about where it's been frustrating because the hasn't necessarily been indepth research research put into them and how those parts of their history and they memoirs would be incredibly valuable to that discussion yeah. It's it's just I really frustrating but does that. There is some fantastic work yet to come. I think like this any other episode that we have done has made maybe it consists of the person to speak French probably can never speak French but many people do speak French and we can audience linemen and yeah. I think this is part of why we do this. Cost right is telling stories like these and hopefully one of the things that we do is inspire other people to absolutely take coals of quiz research into Qutb able. I'm like I'm not sure if it was the Poi- Mari episode maybe but I definitely ended like transistor episodes by just like yelling at Trans people to go into history. I did and I stand by that sucks. That transistor is so young right now but it does mean that you can feel sorry palpably as a transit and that your voice is needed and is valuable and you can take some comfort in that at least. I think I also just want to mention that. I I feel like I've worried before that the further back or the hotter it will be to find someone who we're actually that's transparent. I felt a lot of the time when we do as episodes or on twentieth century and there's already such a like. How do we have to get over in terms of arguing. They actually all trans there so I just don't I think is definitely trans and also definitely amazing. It was really fun to spend time with them. Talking about how wine what makes society goods and how the French government can bite them and women are absolutely absolutely the tip top of society. Our town of ten would read thousands of pages of memoirs again. I did not read dozens of pages of memoirs.

If one of my parents, if my dad said, oh, I wanna be a woman, and and they asked the Jenner girls what they called him. And they said they still call him, dad. Can you imagine your father being dressed like a woman changing into a woman who's that? Oh, that's my dad. I mean my gosh. I mean to me that that kind of creeps me out. Does it you. You know what? No. Yeah. Me either. I I would think it might be really startling. And it might be quite an adjustment. But I would think because this is someone you love that in in in feary, it may seem incomprehensible, but my guess is if it's somebody you love, it will be much more comprehensible, and you will still feel the same love that is still. But I think that I think if you're born one way you're born that way for a reason and to change into somebody else. I I don't know it just it just kind of gives me the creeps. Well, it makes you feel more comfortable, and obviously you're gonna be who you are. But it's the clone. Hey that now you've changed into that McCollum some woman daddy. I can see the confusion. I have to say though, that one of the commonalities when I read stories about transgender folks for people who have gone through sort of gender identification. How often one read that these are not really suddenly a something that came out of the blue in adulthood, you often read that a man said when I was five when I was six when I was seven I felt this way. And you hear a woman say I didn't feel like a woman when I was or a girl when I was four or six or eight, and I don't think somebody just one day says off the top of their head. You know, I think I'd like to change this cute when he was Bruce. You know, what he's the only person that. He has to make him happy and. Guess so I can't help it it still kind of creeps me that is what makes him happy. Then. So be it or her now, I'm fine. That makes her happy. Then let the world I hope I hope that doesn't lower your up, you guys opinion me. But I. I can't help it. It's still kind of gives me the creeps. Remember, the not golfer? Because they get coughing TV in here. Do you? Remember the tennis player, Renee Richards. Renee Richards was Richard Raskin, right and decided this isn't me. This isn't who I am and the identified with a female persona and became Richard became Rene, Rene Rasco and that run a lot of attention to that kind of trans gender. Identity was also a very famous writer decades ago. I think his name was James Morris. But he ultimately became Jan Morris and was a travel writer, very highly regarded writer and went through this transformation at public transformation and the world adjusted. Well, that was a long time ago that was when it first I think the first one that came out like that was someone named Chris. Teen jorgensen. Yes. In the fifties. That was I mean, he was George somebody was he was in the navy or, sir. She was in the navy or something and. That was unheard of. I guess I guess you have to learn to accept everything whether you agree with it or not. And again, it's the person who just needs to please themselves if they think about their family, obviously. I mean, I've read many stories where families have embraced the new identity wholeheartedly. Many stories with family did not embrace. Absolutely. Absolutely. Well, I just hope you guys don't think any less of me told me not at all. No. And it's nice to talk with you. Tony. And then very glad you called. Yeah. You know me better than do. You think I would think less of you? Not answer you. I'm sorry. It just it's not just unseen natural to me. So. Well, I can't imagine being a guy. Don't forget their women that have done it too. Yeah. Yeah. I I I've often wondered I've often wondered about Billie Jean King. If she's he used to be a guy. No, she was a woman, and she was married, and she was always female. It's just that. As her life progressed. She realized her emotions. We're much more comfortable with another woman. Okay. Okay. I'm I'm sorry. If I upset anybody I didn't mean to the only two people here. That are listening and can back to you. And. The air fielding Morgan white, gene. Well, I feel I can talk to you guys because you guys can look at things. I can't look at things. What do you call the word? Not rationally, but unbiased, okay, you guys can look at things and biasedly if that's a word, and you know, certain things I'm from the old school. I'm from the fifties and certain things just kind of bother me. And I mean people that's their business. They've got to do what they gotta do certain things. I wouldn't do now for I don't know it just now I feel funny after I came here and said all this feel funny. Tony, okay. Good to talk with you. I love you. Okay. You you guys night.

But if the story is compelling, I'll just I'll I'll eat it up. And this people were telling me to read it and read it read it and sometimes when I get pushed I I will push back and not read it.

She she goes back and forth in time in a way that allows you to really understand these women who did this lacework, really fascinating. So I I definitely suggest that for for folks, the the protagonist in the story is. Khloe ellefson. Sorry, khloe ellefson, and she is a museum curator. So so it's her whole series is about Chloe. So so it's kind of fun to to watch that series grow. What else Jane the over story? Richard powers that was that was fun to see it come out. And then is this a mystery now?
