of the 60s evolved into “I am what I know I am” of the 2000s. And this meant that someone could disregard what his family, his culture, his country or the world said of him; he was the expert on himself. This individualism, which built from the Frontier myths post civil war, was expressed in Star Trek, and culminated as Ayn Rand’s heroic dream of late capitalism, meant that obviously, if you knew you were a man or a woman, just because doctors said you had the wrong body for that and the culture said “you don’t qualify,” that meant nothing. They weren’t the experts on you. Your job was to compel the community, including the professional communities, to re-evaluate this bias and accept your definitions.
