Constance, I signed up for this newsletter a week ago or so. I have been thrilled with the articles they have been sending. They are accessible to a broader audience than some of the other things I have read lately that, while extremely cogent and thoughtful, are nevertheless a bit more esoteric in that an understanding of some more uncommon philosophers is almost mandatory to truly comprehend and apply the thinking to lifestyle changes.
(Whew! What a run-on sentence! Giggle…that is the epitome of what happens in my brain as I wade thru those articles! 🙂 )
But on Everyday Feminism, the content is pitched a bit more at the generic level, the introductory level, and thus more accessible. This article in particular was quite helpful to me.
See, I am still learning about myself…I always knew what I was, even while I dwelt long in the land of Nod (disassociated), but I am just now knowing who I am! And I read the words of others who have long practise and great facility with these concepts, words, and are adept at translating them into a broader commonality, and I find my awareness and understanding growing well.
Please give it a read…there are very likely transgender people in your life, and you do not even know…heck they might not even know (consciously)!! In your jobs, in your schools, in your churches, and in your own families. We are not sexual deviants or perverts, we are humans, and we have been, for whatever reason anyone has been, created thus.
Love and prayers, Charissa
