This quote in particular,

"Still, why should anyone (especially feminist women) object to men wanting to become women? Isn't imitation the highest form of flattery?

Precisely herein lies the “liberal” sexologists’ betrayal of human dignity and integrity: They support the (male) transsexual's claim that he wants to be a woman — when, in fact, what he wants is to be a caricature of the male definition of “femininity.” "

I distinctly remember a minor author of the time (1975-1979) who published an editorial saying that "sex-change operations" eliminated any need for feminism , as any woman who didn't like being a woman and her sex-role could simply 'become a man' ; I can't remember which magazine published this, but I swear the author's first or last name was Tiger, which is such an odd detail that I've remembered it all these decades . The only person I can think of who fits that bill is Lionel Tiger, and I seriously doubt it was him, so...I don't know.
