Trans Politics & Youth Culture

WLRN’s third edition monthly podcast explores trans politics and youth culture. We hear from youth who promote transitioning and youth who do not. Sarah Barr Fraas is a college student who talks about her professor requiring her to either stop speaking critically of gender politics & ideology in her women’s studies class or to “take the class from home.”

Sarah spent a lot of time during her first couple years in college advocating for the admission of men to her women’s college on the grounds that they identified as women. Since hitting “peak trans” during her junior year, she has worked extensively on developing a healthy skepticism for political ideologies and on creating real sisterhood with actual women. She hopes to pursue a career in law, particularly focusing on sex discrimination.
