After analyzing interviews conducted with 100 young people between the ages 3 and 17, Marquette University sociologist Heather Hlavka discovered that girls don’t stand by each other’s side when they report sexual violence. Instead, Hlavka found, girls avoided reporting instances of harassment or violence because they feared backlash from peers and of assuming the label of “whore” or “slut.”

[I]t dawned on me: Many people do not know the difference between trans* women and drag queens!

There seems to be an assumption that all people assigned male at birth who grow up to wear clothing from the women’s section identify the same way.

And that couldn’t be further from the truth.


Keywords: LGBTQIA, trans* issues, gender presentation, drag queens.
