Classical Latin and transgender literature

by Joanne von Spanien

Catus and Nevada

Come back drunk from dinner, which to read, which to read? I’ve read both Imogen Binnie’s Nevada and the Cat in the Hat in Latin so many times! The obvious solution is to brush up my Latin by rereading The Cat in the Hat and then annotate Nevada with extensive Pierre-de-Fermat-esque marginalia: “I could prove you’re not an ‘autogynephiliac,’ James H., but first I have to feed my imaginary cat.” Posso tuum tamquam puella non te places probare, Iacobe H., sed primo habeo felem imaginariam meam alere.

(P.S., my Latin is actually very rusty, so apologies, classicists, if I got stuff wrong.)
