Is this specifically male-bodied trans or is it both? In contemporary western terms, is this only MTF or does the term also include FTM?

Anyone know why the above edit is the only edit in this talk page's history yet is not marked with an N for new page? Hyacinth 04:47, 13 May 2005 (UTC)

This article needs to be expanded to include the whole constellation of social behaviors associated with a winkte. It is not just a sexual thing. See Lame Deer, Seeker of Visions by John Fire Lame Deer. I'll get back to this article as soon as I can. 金 (Kim) 18:56, 21 August 2005 (UTC)

The term "queer" has strong perjorative and offensive overtones in the U.S.A. If the Lakota term has such connotations it would be okay. Otherwise, it should be changed to something like "gay" or "homosexual" for NPOV. Light Orlanu Brecker 07:20, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Russell Means' comments on appropriation[edit]

In 1995, Russell Means made some comments in a lecture (transcribed at his web site) indicating that he was upset with cultural appropriation of the "winkte" concept and by inappropriate performances by cross-dressing gay men at pow-wows. Is this an issue of current debate or note in the Native American and/or gay communities? If so, it is probably worthy of mention in the article. Perhaps someone with more knowledge than I have could write about this. GeoGreg 05:25, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
