ezs note:  It's one of those little hotlinks that you can easily pass over - but you definitely shouldn't. I read that 0.3 percent made up the transgender population - but I was wrong.  It's 0.58 percent - almost double the amount. (In the initial report, the authors of The Williams Institute [UCLA] listed the data as 0.6 percent - but I felt it was more scientifically sound to list the data at 0.58 percent.)  To get the full documentation from The Williams Institute, press http://williamsinstitute.law.ucla.edu/wp-content/uploads/How-Many-Adults-Identify-as-Transgender-in-the-United-States.pdf.

ezs note:  Believe it or not, I do respect Germaine Greer's work, despite our differences.  However, I would respectfully suggest that, for a start, she read transgender history in Wikipedia.  From ancient Assyria to the present day, transgender history is part of history, no matter how we wish to cover it up.

"She had no preconceived notion of backward or primitive, no prejudice equal to my blind assumption of superiority.  I stopped trying to teach her and began to learn from her instead.  (italics mine)
