How can we rethink gender (de)transition? With Dr Lieks Hettinga.

The bestselling book Detransition, Baby was called 'perhaps the first great trans realist novel' by The Guardian. It exposes the dreams and sometimes harsh realities of the trans community. One character has an urgent desire to have children, another decides to reverse his transition because he finds life as a trans woman too difficult. Gender scholar Dr Lieks Hettinga (LEI) on the binary logic surrounding (de) transition and contemporary attacks on trans womanhood.
