On the Science of Changing Sex

Video Interview with Alice Dreger

Posted in Film Review by Kay Brown on December 26, 2017

Alice Dreger is a science historian turned intersex activist and staunch supporter/ally of the transcommunity.  Unfortunately for her, she also has a strong moral center and stands up for truth above tribal loyalty.  Even though she had been and remained an ally, she was falsely vilified by some in the transcommunity when she investigated and then wrote a history of the way that J. Michael Bailey was treated after he wrote his book, The Man Who Would Be Queen.  Dr. Dreger later wrote about how this incident led her to investigate other instances where scientists had been falsely pilloried by those who disliked the conclusions that resulted from their work in her wonderful book, Galileo’s Middle Finger.

On an entirely personal note, I’m proud to call Alice my friend and hope that she will once again grace our house with her presence.
