What Does It Mean to be Transgender?
5 days ago
Gender transitioning has always been a topic that makes many people uncomfortable. And ever since Bruce became Kaitlin, it’s been a frequent topic of conversation. Most of the discomfort comes from unfamiliarity, from presumptions, and (of course) from bigotry. In this episode, two transgender women explain what it means to be transgender, both generally and personally. They talk about their experiences going back more than twenty years. They discuss how transitioning, and the science of it, changed over the decades. And they offer their views on what they believe are the most important things for society to know about it. SHOW HIGHLIGHTS [3:45] What does it mean to be transgender? [8:58] How transitioning is different today vs. 20 years ago. [14:08] The most difficult aspects of transitioning.
