Julia Serano’s bio from her site:

Julia Serano is a true Renaissance woman: a writer, performer, activist, musician, and biologist. She is best known for her book Whipping Girl: A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity (Seal Press), a collection of personal essays that reveal how misogyny frames popular assumptions about femininity, and shapes many of the myths and misconceptions people have about trans women. Since its publication in 2007, Whipping Girl has garnered rave reviews (The Advocate placed it on their list of the best non-fiction transgender books and readers of Ms. Magazine ranked it #16 on their list of the 100 Best Non-Fiction Books of All Time) and it has been used as teaching materials in gender studies, queer/LGBTQ studies, sociology, psychology, and human sexuality courses in colleges across North America.
