#149: When Kids Say They’re Trans
By Mark Isero • Issue #149 • View online
Ask me to have a conversation about race or sexual orientation, and I can (mostly) hang with you, even when things get hard. Unfortunately, right now, I can’t say the same thing about trans issues. I feel far away. I haven’t done enough listening and learning, and as a result, even pronouns trip me up sometimes. This week’s lead article — a one-hour examination on trans teens — is a solid start. Even though it’s an excellent piece, and I encourage you to read it, I worry that it’s too much for my head, when really my next step should be with my heart.
