Cited in paper on “paraphilia”

Thanks to Stephanie Hsu of Pace University for citing my work in a criticism of the DSM-V that appeared in the Journal of Medical Humanities!

“’Autogynephilia’ is a sex-fueled mental illness made up by Ray Blanchard,” trans activist Andrea James has declared (2004), but Blanchard’s own best defense has been that “the study of autogynephilia is, more than anything else, the study of what people say about their experiences (2005).
