As a psychologist whose research focuses on gay male issues, I don't research gender, per se. I am familiar with the literature, however, and many of the notions that Zucker brings to the table, including the dichotomization of transsexuals into "homosexual" and "autogynophilic" types, is not without controversy. Additionally, there only small studies with numerous limitations that have lead to the conjecture that GID in children indicates the possibility of adult self-identification as gay. The controversy stems from the popular perception that Dr. Zucker views these relationships as currently established facts, or in the least the cutting edge of gender research, when they are certainly not the former and the latter is questionable. It will be interesting to see how this controversy unfolds.

While it would be nice if the political dimension were removed and the scientific controversy allowed to be resolved in normal fashion, that seems unlikely. Time will tell.
