After a single University of Southern California student complained about optional questions about their sexual history that were asked as part of a r...
When I was a kid, I didn't specifically have FTM role models, not because they didn't exist, but because I didn't know about them. I'm not sure if young trans males still feel the same and if so, what that says about the "transgender moment" -- but fortunately for me, there was a Bowie.
