Proof; I read it precisely because it's our history and I needed to know how hard it was and the sacrifices made for us to be here today. I also read it as I wasn't very sympathetic to trans men and I needed to understand; it really opened my eyes and my heart. :cry: .

I'm in! I swear I'll read this one start to finish (I've given up on James Fairfax... I'll finish it eventually, but I'm averaging 20 pages per week, so... yeah. :sweat:)

How're we all doing here? Think we'll be ready to discuss once Jo's back from her holiday?

lol That also. But she has been reading other books. I'm sure she'll post about them.
