From Xena (Letter 3)
Xena - A transsexual giant and Wiccan priest. The charismatic leader of Cult Of Xena (COX). Tattoos include a wasp on Xena’s penis and ant trails running up Xena’s legs. Recently cut off a testicle and almost bled to death.
My dear friend Shaun,
I need to write to you. I know it’s been a long time.
I’ve been upset with you and your literary agent. I don’t like the fact that she had you refer to us transgender people as the opposite gender of how we feel we are. I was offended. I still am after having read the blogs several times. Referring to my sisters and me as “he” and “men,” which we are not. I know that your blog readers know that prisons are not dual sexed. We do not have men and women doing time within the same walls. And yet how the blogs were written truly undermines the integrity of my identity. So yes, I am mad!
Other than that, you’re my friend and I love you anyway! I miss you. I hope that some day we can speak with one another face to face.
I love you!
Coming tomorrow: Warrior v Big E. (Part 3)
