So–thanks again in significant part to me–the thread on Cara’s boycott post has already been derailed into a thread about the problem of expecting education from members of a marginalized group.
So I figured I’d start a new thread.
Mind, this is not a 101 thread; I ask commenters to refrain from asking questions like, “What’s the difference between transgender and transsexual?” and “Why do trans care so much about gender?” and “What’s cisgender?”
This thread is for two different things, and I am hoping to host a trans-centered conversation:
1) What does educating mean to you? What do you consider due diligence? Are there any contexts or questions that annoy the living fuck out of you? Or not?
2) Are there any online discussions or posts you would like to hype here? A blog or website that you think is especially incisive? Not 101-type posts, unless you find one especially awesome, but writing that you consider brilliant and complex. And if you’ve written about having to provide information or interrupt a discussion to provide information, please feel free to link that too.
This thread is open to cis commenters and commenters who may feel unacquainted with trans-related terminology and discussions. However, this is not a thread for processing your feelings about the daunting task of learning about trans issues.
