Exploring Gender: This Journey

Written by

cael

 

Exploring Gender has been a large part of my life for over two years. My first post on November 17, 2010 ended with: “This is my personal search for identity, for a place, for courage. These are my thoughts, my feelings, and I hope that through sharing myself I might help others to find the courage to ask themselves those tough questions: Who am I? Who do I feel like I should be?” My personal search is on-going, but Exploring Gender has been there through every step of discovery: coming out as trans*, learning more about the community, going to my first big pride event, changing my name. It’s been a long journey.

2012 has been a year of great news for the community. Four states voted for marriage equality in November. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) ruled gender identity is covered under Title VII protections. The American Psychiatric Association (APA) announced their new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders will list gender dysphoria instead of gender identity disorder and also put out a release in support of the trans* community. But what were your favorite Exploring Gender articles of this year?

Written by

Privilege is a status conferred to certain groups by society, not taken by individuals. In this way, privilege is not something of which we are generally aware, but there are inherent advantages and disadvantages to being a part of certain groups. How does being a part of the trans* community affect privilege?

Exploring Gender: Pronouns and Work Interactions

Written by

HRC Corporate Equality Index 2012

 

It is always interesting starting a new job, getting to learn new things, meeting new people. But whenever you start a new job as a trans* person, there is often a certain bit of anxiety associated with it. It is hard to learn how to navigate new environments, so there are certain questions you should consider. Are you generally read as the gender you identify? How do you want to handle situations in which you are misgendered? Do you want to be stealth and how do you handle that?

Exploring Gender: The Silent T

Written by

LGBTQ* (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Transsexual, Queer or Questioning) is the general acronym used to describe the community, the asterisk used to denote the inclusion of anyone who is a part of the community, but is not represented by any of the letters, such as asexual or pansexual. But over the past few years, some have argued the trans* part of the community is not being well supported by the rest of the community.

Published by the American Psychiatric Association (APA), the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) creates a standard for diagnosis amongst mental health professionals. The current version is the DSM-IV-TR, but the APA is currently working on the DSM-V slated for publication in May 2013. But what does the DSM have to do with gender?
