Description

We are only beginning to understand gender. Is it inborn or learned? Can it be chosen{8213}or even changed? Does it have to be one or the other? These questions may seem abstract, but for parents whose children live outside of gender znorms,y they are very real. No two children who bend the zrulesy of gender do so in quite the same way. Felicia threw away her frilly dresses at age three. Sam hid his interest in dolls and zgirl thingsy until high school{8213}when he finally confided his desire to become Sammi. And seven-year-old Maggie, who sports a boys{8217} basketball uniform and a long blond braid, identifies as za boy in the front, and a girl in the back.y But all gender-nonconforming children have one thing in common{8213}they need support to thrive in a society that still subscribes to a binary system of gender. Dr. Diane Ehrensaft has worked with children like Felicia, Sam, and Maggie for over 30 years. In Gender Born, Gender Made, she offers parents, clinicians, and educators guidance on both the philosophical dilemmas and the practical, daily concerns of working with children who don{8217}t fit a ztypicaly gender mold. She debunks outmoded approaches to gender nonconformity that may actually do children harm. And she offers a new framework for helping each child become his or her own unique, most gender-authentic person.
