The basics of transgender

August 30, 2009 at 11:27 pm Leave a comment

The following video give a fairly good overview of what it means to be transgender; it describes the variety of ways people live their genders even within the transgender community. And it effectively challenges the traditional gender model, offering in its stead a much more accurate model that captures the diversity of our species. Most resonant to me is the section near the end where the interviewees express their frustration at being reduced to nothing more than transgender by people who don’t seem capable of seeing past that. We are dog-owners, artists, performers, office workers, doctors, academics… We are everywhere and we live full, well-rounded lives.
