At the same time that this book is intended for the skeptic audience, this book is also meant to be uplifting to the LGBTQ+ audience. The Transgender Manifesto provides inspiration for anyone struggling to accept their identity by providing what they are denied by the other side — validity. That is the message of the Transgender Manifesto: you are valid, you are accepted, and you are loved. I hope that young LGBTQ+ kids, and especially transgender kids, can read this and know that fact, and may it give them courage and strength to face the world themselves.
All in all, The Transgender Manifesto is combative, yet abundantly heart-felt, and Malone’s words are what America needs to read today. No matter where you are right now in life’s journey, you will find something in this book to ponder and to share.
This book hit me initially as rather aggressive in how short and succinct the 'chapters' were and in how blunt, to-the-point and in-your-face (not a criticism at all) the author's responses were. Some chapters are no more than a page long, but each and every one takes stuff that heterosexuals, bashers, birthers, the uneducated, the uninformed and others might interpret a certain way and shows them from a lived, i.e. a transgender person's perspective.
Some of it is very sad, some has snark and humour, but all of it made me think and feel. I happened to finish the book on the International Day of Transgender Remembrance, which was unintentional, but which culminated in me reading about some of the transgender people who've been murdered in the US this year, and I think I got hit by a deluge of information, in a good way.
At first, I admit that the author's 'aggression', as I perceived it, turned me off a little, but I went nosing on her website and as I read more and more, I realised that she is just passionate about her life, about experiences good and bad that she's either experienced or known via others. The examples cited, of so many things that het people take for granted, but that a transgender person can't, were humbling. It saddened me and also made me appreciate the 'rights' that I have, simply for being born het and in the UK. Compared to the US, where not all states allow transgender people to change their sex on their birth certificates post-transition, the UK has many protections and rights for all its people. Would that this happened all over the world.
The author puts out some great truths in this book - I just hope that people read it, talk about it and make lots of noise about it. It's the kind of book that 'tells it as it is' and it needs to be read to educate people.

I am a sucker for manifestos. I read them like people eat candy. I crave them and I seek them out. This seemed perfect for me.Read more
