Oh, if you think trans activists are looking for a gender-free society you are giving them way too much credit.. Trans activists uphold gender for their own interests; transgendered males, in particular, believe that through claiming femininity they can claim femaleness. They revel in sex stereotypes — just not the stereotypes of the sex they were born with. Their ability to live as their target sex relies on others’ perceptions of them as that sex, and without external signifiers of sex (i.e. sex roles), they don’t have that. Trans activists are terrified of a world without gender.
