I am a queer transman, and my focus tends to be on trans and queer issues. Overall, I'm also a strong feminist, and generally interested in equality between people regardless of who they are. I'm a sociologist at heart. I want to spend my life studying how humans interact, and how society shapes who they are. I see many causes as inherently interrelated, and tend not to categorize them as "women's issues"/"gay issues"/whatever. It frustrates me to no end when issues that affect a wide range of people are ascribed only to a single group. Domestic violence doesn't only affect women, discrimination based on gender expression/presentation doesn't only affect transpeople, etc., yet we tend to ignore those who are affected by prejudice, hatred, or violence if they don't fit our concept of a victim. This needs to change.
