Griffin Hansbury’s (2017a) paper "The masculine Vaginal: Working with queer men’s embodiment at the transgender edge" is seen as an original contribution, able to stimulate psychoanalysis to reflect and to produce a language at the gender’s borders of male identities. The proposal of a "masculine Vaginal" - as an "embodied" reinvention of concepts that were already known to psychoanalysis (in authors such as Judith Butler, Jessica Benjamin, or Ken Corbett) - may widen the available symbolizations in the clinical work with male patients (cisgender and transgender, homosexuals and heterosexuals). Such widening field of symbolizations may also be a useful tool in the clinical and cultural work both on the "fluid"/queer side and on the "rigid"side (in the sense of a masculinity that today some define as "toxic") of male identifications.
