Abstract (type = abstract)
From the perspective of a trans* individual who identifies with radical feminist politics, I attempt to navigate the longstanding and divisive debate between both the mainstream transgender community and radical feminists. At the core of the debate between the trans* advocates and radical feminists is the contention over the utility of gender. Through the use of textual analysis, I examine common narratives within the trans* movement and the counter arguments posed by radical feminism. Additionally, I base my argument on Foucault’s theory of biopolitics and Deleuze and Guattari’s assemblage theory which serves as a lens to interrogate various studies within medical discourse. By doing so, I highlight the paradoxes of both perspectives in an attempt to bridge fundamental gaps in feminist discourse. Ultimately, I aim to facilitate a productive conversation between the trans* community and radical feminists that can be accepting while also constructively critical. This research seeks to conceptualize a better feminism, one that is inclusive yet critical of the ways in which we come to socially and biologically conceive of ourselves.
