“People think of transitioning like theres a gender on each side of a bridge, and the trans person crosses the bridge. It would be better to think that gender is itself a bridge, between the thinking subject and the body, and transitioning creates a better bridge to the body”
I don’t think transition as “building a bridge to the body” is a complete theory, but I like it as way to get past both transmedicalism and the question of gender stereotypes.
