I have often referred to my sons on this blog, of whom I am very proud. My younger son, Professor Tobias Barrington Wolff, is a senior member of the University of Pennsylvania Law faculty and a leading expert on such arcane matters as class action suits and complex litigation. He is also the author of a series of brilliant papers on various aspects of the LGBT struggle that has recently culminated in the establishment of same-sex marriage as a constitutionally protected right. He played an important part in that struggle and continues to do so.
Three years ago he published this extraordinary article entitled "Civil Rights Reform and the Body." It is not often that you encounter a passionate defense of the rights of transgendered Americans that draws on, among other things, early train travel in America and the history of public swimming pools.
If anyone wants to know what I have been bragging about, take a look at the article.
