My eighteen year old son tells me that at his college, everyone’s talking about gender and in particular whether they might be transgender, gender-queer, gender-fluid and a host of other things which he couldn’t remember. The teen/young adult years are a time of exploring identity; in those years it feels particularly crucial to find out who you are, and these days young people are faced with a bewildering display of options.
I wrote here about transgender children (and how they don’t exist) but what about young people? What do parents need to know?
The ideas that your kids will be hearing at college or university have come from the hugely influential trans-activist lobby and I’ll attempt to sum up what they’re saying here so at least you’ll feel informed. You might want to sit down and make yourself a cup of tea.
