“During the sixties, as I spoke to audiences about the unfairness of the prevailing attitudes [toward homosexuality], I was stunned by the severity of the reaction. In Chicago, I needed an escort to get from a radio station to my hotel. Later, in Baltimore, a caller to a radio program threatened my life and was encouraged by the interviewer. In New Jersey, a bomb threat emptied out a church in which I was to speak….In 1967 I coined the term homophobia to describe this irrational reaction.”
George Weinberg, Society and the Healthy Homosexual (1972)

This site offers an annotated bibliography of research into autogynephilic transsexualism. This research is innovative, controversial, and sometimes confusing. This bibliography provides a helpful way to sort through the data.
We have a new annotated bibliography on our website at http://www.transkids.us/biblio.html. The resarch and commentary is by transkids.us author Alex Parkinson.
One criticism, made primarily by transsexuals, often aimed at anyone who supports the autogynephilia/homosexual typology of m2f transsexualism is the claim that Dr. Blanchard’s papers are the only published research on the subject, that they have never been replicated, used inappropriate methodology/controls, etc. etc. We knew this was not true, so our bibliography lists over 50 citations mostly of research on either one of the two type of M2F TS or which differentiates the two populations. Also included are papers which use the same typology as Dr. Blanchard which replicate his findings both before and after his original papers were published.
If anyone knows of any citations which we may have missed please let us know.
