The Ins and Outs of Transmasculine Embodiment: Commentary on Griffin Hansbury's “Middle Men” Related Papers

Debra Roth, L.C.S.W.

This response paper attempts to explicate the more subtle levels of textual meaning contained in the linear taxonomy that Griffin Hansbury employs to introduce his readers to FTM experience. To this end, a relational interpretive strategy is used. This approach seeks to create a richer interchange with Hansbury's ideas through a discussion of the interplay between the various components of his essay and the corresponding responses of the reader. Factors that contribute to the psychoanalytic precepts supporting the unreflexive pathologizing of trans persons are outlined, including tenets basic to psychoanalytic theory and technique. Of these, the sense of gender disequilibrium that trans phenomena produces in the preconscious experience of the analyst is highlighted. As a supplement to Hansbury's reference list, a briefly annotated bibliography provides references for those interested in further deconstructing the problems of transsexuality within psychoanalysis.
