Julia Serano


Julia Serano’s Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity, a collection of gender studies essays, was never intended to become more than a niche read aimed at femmes and trans women. Instead, it gained popularity as a college textbook for its novel, non-autobiographical approach to feminism from a trans woman’s perspective. Although she was originally trained as a biologist (even making a discovery in fruit fly biology) and has performed in a band, she is best known for Whipping Girl and its related essays, public performances, and sequel. She has also written on bisexuality and her experiences as a bisexual woman.
