Peters, 39, is the first trans woman to be nominated for the prize and after the initial buzz settled, she remembered what had happened to the non-binary transgender author Akwaeke Emezi. Peters was in Florida when she heard the news. But this was people commenting on my and sending me direct messages. It destabilised me for a week. It is, simply, excellent.
Having ly self-published two novellas, a horror called The Masker and the post-apocalyptic Infect Your Friends and Loved OnesPeters says that with Detransition, Baby she wanted to write soap opera. Ames once lived as a woman, named Amy, but detransitioned when his relationship with Reese disintegrated.
He suggests to Reese that she raise the baby with him and Katrina in some new-fangled notion of a family. Grappling with her own feelings about the inadequacy of heterosexuality, Katrina agrees to give it a go. They know what their desires are: they like men. But this way of doing it, heterosexuality, has failed. Her partner, Chrystin, is a law professor who has an year old son. They share a home in New York. Essentially, language as it was originally deed falls apart in a trans context. The words themselves are inadequate for our experiences.
We have to take the ideas and make them our own. The character of Reese understands this. She is often reed to the difficult realities of life as a trans woman, although she allows herself to be swept up by the notion of becoming a mother and forging a new path. Still, she is far more emboldened than Katrina or Ames, especially when it comes to sex and the socio-politics of her desires. It is an aspect of the novel that Peters has been attacked over. Why should trans authors have to write characters who lie about their desires, when the whole point of fiction is to have the ability for your characters to say the hard truths?
The character of Ames and his experience with detransitioning is another hard truth, but one that Peters says is not some big Women sex Torrey secret in the trans community. In order to be happy, in order to move forward in your life, you need to figure out Women sex Torrey to do. How are we going to make a culture?
How are we going to treat each other going forward? What it does do, through vivid analogies and beautiful metaphorical language, is speak across difference. For me, metaphor and analogy are the ways in which I can understand the experiences that are not my own. I have things of value to offer, so take what I have… There are a lot of trans women who need help and guidance from cis women. They can take what we know and we can take what they know.
That exchange can be extremely productive. I get to be the one who cements this for all the people that come after me. Log In. Log In Register now My. By Alim Kheraj. April 6, pm Updated April 7, pm.
