This is Coy Mathis, a transgender 6 year old living in Colorado. It just so happens that my brother is in her class at Eagleside Elementary School in Fountain, Colorado. When I asked my brother how he felt about Coy he said, “She’s got really cool hair and we play on the slides at recess.” I asked what he thought about Coy’s decision to be a girl and he said, “She is a girl. She just got the wrong body on accident.” How is a 6 year old more understanding and accepting of her than many of the adults at Eagleside Elementary?

i just cried a little. beautiful. if only we could all have the mindset of a child when it comes to gender.

Because anti-trans discrimination is steeped in traditional sexism, it is not simply enough for trans activists to challenge binary gender norms (i.e. oppositional sexism) - we must also challenge the idea that femininity is inferior to masculinity and that femaleness is inferior to maleness. In other words, by necessity, trans activism must be at its core a feminist movement.

To anyone who is confused about their gender identity,

"Identity is fantastic. Confusion is wonderful. Questions are amazing. If you’re confused about who you are, if you’re identity isn’t what you once thought it was, if you’re questioning everything you once felt sound in, GOOD FOR YOU. Your mind, from this experience, has officially been opened farther than most of the people around you. From this point on, you have a realm of thinking that most people you encounter everyday don’t even know exists. You are privy to a glorious, marvelous world of people that are caring, accepting, and kind. You have broken the shell into a world of individuals who accept you for YOU."
