For most people, gender identity is pretty straightforward. We are identified as a boy or a girl at birth and don't give it a second thought. For others, however, the gender they were born into is not the gender they feel is their true identity.
Whether you know someone who is questioning their gender or simply want to understand more about how to engage in this current dialogue, When Gender is In Question is a valuable guide to understanding. The book offers insights to many questions about gender:
- What is the difference between being gay and being trans? - What are the current issues facing trans and gender diverse people? - What words and phrases are valuable to know? - What is the medical research on gender?
