Misgendering: How to Deal With It

The Big List of Resources for Family of Trans*...
This list isn’t as big as it should be, because unfortunately there isn’t a lot of help out there for parents, siblings, children and other family members of trans* people. However this list is always growing and will be updated whenever new information is found/created. Family members of Trans* people go through a different type of transition when their child begins to transition,...

Reply from http://iamthephonebook.tumblr.com/ @ the anon who is trying to lower their voice, I have a suggestion, one that I use. Lower your voice (only a bit or you will strain your vocal cords too much and damage them) and then say ‘ding dong, king kong, ping pong’. Hold the last letters out as long as you can in one breath. Twice a day. It sounds stupid, and I don’t remember where I read it,...
Transitioning in High School
Transitioning in High School (or middle school) can be extremely difficult. Many trans* youth wish to switch schools in order to be seen as their true gender. However that is not something that a youth might not want to do, which is fine, and for other people switching school’s in not an option. So what steps should you take when wanting to transition at school? Talk to your parents - If...
