Recently, a video about a transgender child in California went viral. Sadly, like every other conversation about transgender children, the comments section was often unkind. Scanning the comments, I saw the same poorly thought-out ideas keep popping up. I think it's time to put these misconceptions to bed.
As I shake the science instructor's calloused hand I hope he really understands. Did he take it to heart when I described how gut wrenching it is for Sam to hear the words, "Pick a lab partner"? How hard it is to be put in that position? The odd man out because nobody wants to be paired with that kid who "...used to be a girl."
