Educating Myself

Someone wrote…

I’m a cis male and a couple of my friends came out about a year ago, one as a trans male and the other as non-binary. I’ve talked to them about it and read a lot about transgender stuff, and I’m finding it so liberating to have my casual preconceptions about gender demolished.

I’ve always accepted trans people, but I hadn’t made an effort to understand transgender issues until recently. Educating myself about trans stuff has made me more sensitive to the problems trans people encounter and the concerns they have, and it’s made me happier too.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
