Piece about Claudette’s gender and work.
I value a lot about the life and story of Claudette. I value her non-normative age, gender, and line of work. It’s great to gain perspective into topics like this and to hear that this woman truly enjoys the work she does.
But, correct me if I’m wrong: aren’t the terms hermaphrodite and transsexual not the preferred language (instead intersex and transgender or trans)? And why does my computer tell me intersex is not a word?!
