cite me?

Can anybody name me an academic text that uses non-standard transgender pronouns (sie, ze, etc) or discusses them? I want to refer to them in a footnote to my MA dissertation and need a reference.

I was sure Cromwell or Califia did, but from a quick skim, apparently not.

***edit***

Kate Bornstein's My Gender Workbook. Hurrah! Perhaps not the most "academic" text in the world, but it will do very well for my purposes.

And I was pretty unclear saying "transgender pronoun" above - I meant a nonstandard pronoun that encompasses all genders and is used in transgender discourses and communities, rather than an extra gendered pronoun to be used in addition to 'he' and 'she' in order to designate transpeople.
