This reply considers themovement of words as discussed in Camminga's article with reference to South Africa's Constitution and its Refugee Act. It explores the value and limitations of performing subjectivities like ‘transgender’ in contexts where these words have been introduced and, in some cases, imposed. This discussion considers the ‘Stigma of Western Words’, as articulated by Camminga, in light of the broader politics of international development and aid conditionality linked to LGBT rights.
