I've Learned There Is No Us Versus Them With Transgender Issues

Recently someone in my inner circle began a relationship with a transgender woman. I learned to love someone new and accept her into my circle. Issues affecting transgender people have become my issues. I have read articles about people wanting to make policy about which bathroom is used by a transgender person. Then I realized, this isn't just a problem "they" face, it's a problem she faces.

Parents Have the Most to Learn From Caitlyn Jenner

Caitlyn's mother, Esther Jenner, has called her daughter "beautiful," said she has "nothing but admiration for my child" and that she wants to learn more about gender dysphoria. In many ways, Esther's attitude is as valuable as the spotlight Caitlyn Jenner is shining on the trans community. Too often, mothers and fathers tell transgender children not to be themselves.
