How does reading nonfiction change your perception of this book? How do we think through the realities of these nonfiction recountings of growing up as a transgender person? What are your thoughts on how Susan Kuklin captured each teen’s story?

And response to the peer’s reflection toward this article
As a straight and cisgender, I didn’t know there were so many different terms. I heard , the common ones, but never understood most of what the titles contained. The article and the book has helped me out on what some mean. All of the stories contain the word acceptance and the individuals in the stories have to accept and find themselves first before being confident with the outside world. With wanting my class to be an accepting and embracing to all people for who they are, I would love to share these stories. Most of them are very heart breaking and all-and-all motivating. They continue to be who they are and be resilient as people who don’t understand them are rude and disrespectful. The story of Christina: Every Girl is Different, the mother is how I could have seen Aristotle’s mom, if she wasn’t so accepting. Christina went to an all boys school and starting dressing the way she wanted to. I feel that would raise flags in a school atmosphere and would need to be met and discussed. That would be a great activity for all students to be involved to write letters to the school board about policies that are not equal to all of the student body. All the city schools in my are having multiple bathrooms put in as a gender-neutral bathroom for all transgender students. That’s one step. After reading a story, I would also like to have an open discussion with students, about their feelings and if they have been able to express themselves the way they want to. I feel that most, if not all, of the stories, the people felt secluded, alone, and misunderstood. We as educators and facilitators have to be able to reach all kids. Nat attempted suicide twice due to his depression. It broke my heart when Mariah’s teacher pinched her to figure out why she wore dresses. I was emotional when Mariah’s grandmother and Jessy’s mom was put on watch with child services because their children didn’t fit into the norm. Why do we label and our community/society tell us what is acceptable and not. When do we as adults let our children/students express who they are?
