Abstract

Abstract:

This paper recognizes the perils of forcing queer subjects into tick boxes but argues that the urgent need for transgender-accessible bathrooms requires a more inclusive count of this vulnerable population. Most estimates of the transgender population are flawed because they measure only the transsexual population. This paper uses a more broadly defined transgender subjectivity that includes transsexuals and cross-dressers, as well as intersex, gender-flux, or gender-nonconforming individuals for a total of 9,318,597 individuals or nearly 3 percent (2.92) of the U.S. population.
