The best explainer on trans issues for an older gentleman
Post date: 2022-11-28 02:49:15
Hi, I work in academia, and my professor is a 70 year old scientist. Recently at lunchtime he's been asking a lot of questions about trans stuff. Like "If someone can choose their gender can I choose my race or age" hypotheticals. I don't think there's any malice in it, I think he's trying to wrap his head around something that's new to him. I've been doing my best to explain the little I know, but I am not very educated in the subject either. I've decided I'm going to get him a book for a Christmas present that will be a better teacher that I am. Does anyone have any good recommendations?
To stress a point above, he's pretty old and scientifically minded, and is probably not very up to date on current identity politics stuff. So something that doesn't assume much beforehand, whilst being clear and concise would be perfect. Thanks in advance
