Since I didn’t have time to write something myself, here’s a round-up of posts on the subject from FTB-ers:
In Happy International Day of Trans Visibility! Abe Drayton from Oceanoxia has put together a collection of links on the subject.
In With Head Held High, Rhiannon from Intransitive points out the importance of greater visibility for marginalised groups, so that members of those groups aren’t left self-blaming and alone. From this post, I also found the Tumblr Assigned Male, which uses some rather nice cartoons to explain transgender issues.
In I made a video for the Trans Day of Visibility, PZ Myers at Pharyngula posts… well, a video he made, obviously. It’s called ‘The Fallacy of Biological Sex’, and seems to mention something about myths about athletes, which looks interesting.
In The Invisible Queer, Great American Satan at the blog of the same name muses a little on being genderqueer.
Best wishes for rights and societal acceptance to people everywhere, and may transgender people everywhere get to enjoy the comforts that so many cisgender people take for granted.
