Transphobia: Deal with It and Be a Gender Transcender

Title: Transphobia: Deal with It and Be a Gender Transcender

Author: J Wallace Skelton


Rating: 5 out of 5 fairies

Synopsis: Who do you think you are? Part of identity is how people experience their gender. Transphobia is intolerance of any part of the range of gender identity. This accessible, illustrated book offers information, quizzes, comics and true-to-life scenarios to help kids better understand gender identity and determine what they can do to identify and counter transphobia in their schools, homes, and communities. Considered from the viewpoint of gender challengers, gender enforcers and witnesses, transphobic behavior is identified, examined and put into a context that kids can use to understand and accept themselves and others for whatever gender they are -- even if that's no gender at all!

Review: I would love to see this book in sex-ed classes everywhere. It covers in a way tweens, teens, and adults can understand Transphobia and what to do when you see it happening. In today's world, where LGBT+ are often ostracized, ridiculed, and bullied by peers and those in authority positions, this book is more important than ever.

Where to buy: Amazon
