Man I’ve talked about this at great lengths before but I think it bears repeating. Being open with gender, the existence of genders besides cis, it’s so so important.
I remember i was following someone on facebook who posted one day “i’m feeling very boy today”. And it got me thinking about what it is to feel “boy”. Because as far as I could tell, feeling boy as often as I did meant i was a tomboy (cause i felt “boy” more often than anything else).
But that person had a different word for it. That was kind of my “way in” to trans stuff, because that kind of thing is exactly nowhere in media, especially media aimed at children.
Information and education on trans issues and identities are so valuable, and there’s nowhere near enough of them. Spread the word when you have the opportunity, because it’s not only cis people who need to know.
