"Reasoning About Gender"--A Philosophical Discussion

Elliot R. Crozat has an excellent article on the issue of gender and transgenderism--Reasoning About Gender

Here is abstract for the paper:

Abstract: In this paper, I explore two views about gender. I refer to the first as gender dichotomism. I refer to the second as transgenderism. Next, I argue that (1) the burden of proof is on the apologist of transgenderism to show why gender dichotomism is false, and (2) this burden has not been met. Finally, I provide supplementary notes to clarify how certain terms are used in the paper. I forward the points in this paper in the hope that they help to engender further dialogue in the spirit of Socratic elenchus.
