She's the author of some of the worst, most dense academic writing ever, and is as irritating as you'd expect. She's the main source of a lot of the "gender" movement and she sounds like a permanently tripping shroom addict when she gives interviews. At least we are spared her ridiculous overuse of insider terms, made-up terms, and complex words that pollutes her writing on the microscopic level.
She doesn't claim to be a woman anymore, either. She's "nonbinary", although she says this in the most roundabout and conditioned way possible. Currently she is a "they", but of course it's amorphous and unfixed, and she retains the option to change it at any moment. Like she won't come out and say directly "I am nonbinary", she has to say "When I wrote Gender Trouble, there was no category for “nonbinary” – but now I don’t see how I cannot be in that category." and this is after a meandering riff on her pronouns, which she's "surprised and impressed" when people ask for hers.
Judith, on her book "GENDER TROUBLE":
"It was meant to be a critique of heterosexual assumptions within feminism, but it turned out to be more about gender categories. For instance, what it means to be a woman does not remain the same from decade to decade. The category of woman can and does change, and we need it to be that way. Politically, securing greater freedoms for women requires that we rethink the category of “women” to include those new possibilities. The historical meaning of gender can change as its norms are re-enacted, refused or recreated."
and she also conflates sex and gender, and when she's talking about the anti-gender ideology movement, she says they "insist that sex is biological and real", which she seems to strongly disagree with, and she also seems to claim that belief is based on religion and not science. She's doing the "people who disagree with me are religious zealots / right-wing people" thing that every trans activist does.
She makes her most direct, absolute statements when she's speaking about the movement that basically says she's full of shit. I guess we can tell what she feels most strongly about - when she's challenged for her sloppy philosophy:
"This movement is at once anti-feminist, homophobic and transphobic, opposing both reproductive freedom and trans rights. It seeks to censor gender studies programs, to take gender out of public education – a topic so important for young people to discuss. And to reverse major legal and legislative successes for sexual freedom, gender equality and laws against gender discrimination and sexual violence."
None of which is actually true.
She even riffs on how she was "concerned" about the challenges faced by bisexuals to gain acceptance, and of course, she mentions "intersex" individuals. Is she wagging the dog of the TRAs, or are they informing her? She's using some of the same language they use, but it's hard to know which came first after a certain point.
She's basically every trans rights activist rolled into one. She's the UR TRA.
