Bailey on reading lists

During my 15 June 2003 radio interview on KPFT with Vanessa and Beth*, I mentioned that Bailey was already being included in institutional reading materials. This page will monitor that activity.

Here's mine:

Your Pride 2003 page:
http://www.mpls.lib.mn.us/pride2003.asp
Lists the Man Who Would Be Queen under "gender identity."
Many transsexual women consider this the most defamatory book written in 24 years.
For details, please see:

We ask that you remove it from a list of books designed to instill transgender pride.

In June 2003, the Education Administration section of the University of Wisconsin website carried the following in their diversity section:

transgender/Transsexual Reading Resources Compiled by Lynne Evarts (levarts@aol.com)

http://labweb.education.wisc.edu/edad735/instructor_materials/sexual_orientation/Booklist_transgender.doc (word document: requires reader)

I have contacted the author and will report any responses. Below is my letter:

Dear Ms. Evarts:

I saw your materials on the U. of Wisconsin website at:

http://labweb.education.wisc.edu/edad735/

As of June 2003, the Education Administration section of the University of Wisconsin website carries the following in their diversity section:

transgender/Transsexual Reading Resources Compiled by Lynne Evarts (levarts@aol.com)

http://labweb.education.wisc.edu/edad735/instructor_materials/sexual_orientation/Booklist_transgender.doc (word document: requires reader)

This list includes “The Man Who Would Be Queen” by J. Michael Bailey. Please be aware that many transsexuals consider this the most defamatory book on transsexualism written in 24 years, and should not be included in any list purporting to be inclusive or trans-friendly. For more on this, please visit:

Or contact me via email. We are very interested in seeing this book removed from your reading list.
Thank you!

Lynn Evarts' response on 20 June 2003:

Please inform everyone who is innundating me with e-mail that the list is going to be removed as soon as humanly possible. I have spoken with the professor in charge of the page, and she said she is taking care of it. Please give us some time to allow the wheels of technology to turn before you continue to bombard me with e-mail. I have written to several of your members, thanking them for their opinions, and I have indicated that the website is going to be amended. Please pass the word around that it is being taken care of as fast as a university can take care of anything.

Thank you.
Lynn Evarts
