I’ve written four books and edited five books. You can see the list of my nine books here, with links to more information about each. I’ve also been an editor for a number of academic projects, including special journal issues; see that list here.
In terms of articles, my mainstream bylines include The New York Times, the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the L.A. Times, WIRED, New Statesman, Aeon Magazine, Pacific Standard, and lots more.
I’ve also published many academic articles, including three major historical investigations. I used some of my research funding to make these open-access, so you can read them for free:
- Darkness’s Descent on the American Anthropological Association: A Cautionary Tale
- The Controversy Surrounding The Man Who Would Be Queen: A Case History of the Politics of Science, Identity, and Sex in the Internet Age
- Prenatal Dexamethasone for Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia: An Ethics Canary in the Modern Medical Mine (with Ellen K. Feder and Anne Tamar-Mattis)
I used to try to keep up with listing at this website every new article I published. Having now authored hundreds of published articles (thousands if you count my reporting at the local news organization I founded in 2014), I can’t practically do that. Instead, I can point you to some favorites and to my author pages at various sites.
A few favorite articles
- “What if we admitted to children that sex is primarily about pleasure?” – an article that went viral
- “Visiting Your Leg,” one of my own personal favorites
- “Lavish Dwarf Entertainment,” chosen for Norton’s 2009 anthology of Best Creative Nonfiction: read it for free here.
- “Why I Escaped the Intellectual Dark Web” at the Chronicle of Higher Education
- I’ve had seven of my essays published in the New York Times, and the most popular seems to be my story of having XX Syndrome.
- “Can We Have Sex Back?”
