Super dense, but taking into account feminist and contemporary anthropological theory, this is the most reflexive and accountable representation of the discourses out there that transmen have been using circa. late '90s.
Super boring the first time I read it, then I took Issues in Contemporary Theory, Anthro 350, with Dr. Andy Lass, and this book might be the best ethnography out there. The question with this literature is, do you want to see/understand how people live their lives and read ethnography, or do you want to see what the autobiographers see, the people who choose to be out and are articulate enough to write about it? When it comes to reading ethnography, do you want unmediated accounts like Wilchin's compilations, or do you want ethnographic/anthropological texts, because, as Towle and Morgan quote Bornstein, "I don't know who discovered water, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't a fish."
