    1. transitioning and/or being someone physically marked as transitioned is really lonely in some ways and this book made me feel a lot less lonely. i found the really academic theory-dense parts annoying, i just wanted to read the interviews and see the % breakdowns of how everyone's sibling relationships went and all that stuff. i'm so grateful devor named who was speaking, almost everyone who was quoted multiple times sounded like someone i wish i could spend time with, even if we would disagree [...]

    2. One of the first to treat the subject. Pure Sociology, but nonetheless very insightful and groundbreaking.

    3. Very informative. A great resource for FTM history and contained lots of sociological material, but I didn't appreciate when the author misgendered the interviewees.
