Deal with it and be a gender transcender
From the Series Lorimer Deal With It
Who do you think you are? Part of identity is how people experience their gender. Transphobia is intolerance of any part of the range of gender identity. This accessible, illustrated book offers information, quizzes, comics and true-to-life scenarios to help kids better understand gender identity and determine what they can do to identify and counter transphobia in their schools, homes, and communities. Considered from the viewpoint of gender challengers, gender enforcers, and witnesses, transphobic behavior is identified, examined, and put into a context that kids can use to understand and accept themselves and others for whatever gender they are—even if that’s no gender at all!
