Re: INFOBUS: Gender is more than male or female

here's a little summary of what we talked about:

 

We started talking about what our highlights were from watching the film, and then asked what struck a chord, or got us thinking. This sparked some great comments about the using people’s preferred names and pronouns – how it’s a really easy way to show respect and be supportive. Also, it helps if someone is open to new things!

 

There were comments around gender being a spectrum and that people’s identities can sit anywhere along that spectrum. Also folks spoke about gender being just a part of the many identities and interests they have. That its not ok to assume someone’s gender by the way they present.

 

We rounded up our discussion by offering advice about how to respect trans* and genderqueer friends in our lives:  don’t assume – ask; try; educate yourself; show respect; be a good friend; seek out more information;
