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.” "

Holy shit. This article should be required reading. Every single issue that exists with the trans movement today is predicted and broken down perfectly. Every single paragraph is a mic drop.

Reading this article you might get the sense that the author, Thomas Szasz, was a pretty unconventional and polarizing figure, and you'd be right.
