"Dianics support all people in finding their path to the Goddess. However, we do not recognize hormonally or surgically altered men as women, and therefore exclude these men, or men who self-define as women, from our tradition. Women's Mysteries cannot be understood nor experienced through chemical or surgical alterations to our human bodies(2008)."

There were demonstrations when Julie Bindel was honoured by Stonewall despite her transphobia. Were there similar demonstrations at the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center in 1997?
Two of the comments on my article about Janice Raymond nominate Zsuzsanna Budapest as equally transphobic. Budapest would appear to be one of those movement leaders who are careful about their public negativities and leave it to their followers to take the flak. At least I cannot find any comments about trans women using the Amazon Look Inside feature on Budapest’s books.
The RCG has added International to its name, but all its circles seem to be in one country only.
