Away from school pressures, children who defy gender norms blossom at home

Finding this to be true for many ... and in less than affirming environments this can increase isolation and dypshoria... complicated and mutli sided as usual...

While many children miss seeing their classmates, some children who defy gender norms are often teased and bullied at school. Now at home with affirming families, they're flourishing and helping parents see their experience in a new light.

Family acceptance is effortless or complicated at times and nonexistent at others ... and it’s the only medicine. Please be that family or chosen family if you have a young person in your life who needs you. And you deserve information, love and support as well. And. No negotiation with keeping all our children close.

Thank you, Schuyler!

Bay Area Covid-19 Resources

Bay Rising is an amazing organizing group in the Bay Area. They have a newly searchable resource page they put together for COVID-19. I found a few things here I hadn’t seen elsewhere, including useful summaries below each category link (financial, housing, support for unhoused, incarceration and reentry, immigration). Can search by city, county, resources:

Transgender children sense their gender identities at young ages

Not all. And certainly later out kids or youth are just as authentic though this rings true. You can sense things and not have a vocabulary or reference point. And as always who is anyone else to say who someone is and how they feel but themselves...

Their confidence in their gender identity is generally as strong as that of cisgender children, researchers found.

Trump War Against Trans Americans Continues as CDC Replaces LGBTQ References with LGB

Words from Kimberly Anderson.

When you don't intentionally INCLUDE transgender people, you intentionally ERASE them.

This is what is happening currently at the CDC. LGB is replacing LGBTQ. If you are not ACTIVELY using transgender inclusive language and phrasing into your conversations you are contributing to and are complicit in, trans-erasure.

In the ongoing war on transgender and non-binary Americans, the Trump administration has scrubbed the official website of the Center for…

The Trans Obituaries Project: Honoring the Trans Women of Color Lost in 2019

This year, we’ve lost far too many souls to violence. As their deaths were shared with the world, their humanity was lost — reducing them to tragic statistics, empty platitudes, and talking points. We felt it important to elevate the group who is most impacted by the epidemic: transgender women ...

Elora Mukherjee is the lawyer who exposed the conditions in the Clint Detention facility this June, paving the way for the judgment this week that the Trump Administration cannot detain immigrant children indefinitely. The Administration is appealing this decision. I urge you to watch, to "spread the word" through your own networks and to take whatever action you can to impact current immigration policies.

From: Elora Mukherjee , Columbia Law School

I'm writing to share The Flores Exhibits (https://www.flores-exhibits.org/), a project launched just last week in which the sworn testimonies of children detained in federal custody are read. We would love your help in spreading the word about The Flores Exhibits. A key part of this project is making sure these stories reach as wide an audience as possible. The more people that watch and listen, the better chance we have at making a real impact on the direction of national immigration policy. The need to raise awareness, organize, and take action is urgent.

Please post, share, and tell your friends about the site. The trailer is now live on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram: @FloresExhibits.

A few weeks ago, I was sitting in the HR office at the Board of Education, discussing my transition plan for this upcoming school year. The meeting was going super well, and we were just about finished the discussion. The last item on the list: pronouns. “Can you explain they/them pronouns to me?

A new study shows that gender-nonconforming kids who go on to transition already have a strong sense of their true identity—one that differs from their assigned gender.
