Viene sfatato il mito secondo cui il genere (gender) sarebbe un concetto non psicoanalitico imposto agli psicoanalisti da altre discipline (ad esempio dalla sociologia) e/o da attivisti, e sostenuto che vada sdrammatizzato il discorso sul transgender in modo che possiamo lavorare e pensare collettivamente sui gender complessi e sulle loro varie incarnazioni. Ciò implica che si riesca a identificare il motivo per cui la categoria della incarnazione transgender ha prodotto una tale crisi nel nostro campo - cercare cioè le fonti di questa crisi internamente piuttosto che esternamente. Questa crisi è sorta in parte perché il tema del trans ha confrontato gli analisti con i limiti delle teorie consolidate sul corpo, sulla categoria dell’azione e, in alcune scuole psicoanalitiche, sul duraturo primato della fantasia filogenetica. Gli psicoanalisti vengono esortati a impegnarsi in questa crisi in modo produttivo ripensando, cioè pensando meglio, il tema del transgender.
