Everyone welcomed Caitlyn Jenner to the world yesterday. Here are some tips for understanding transgender people. I especially like this one (since we are so hideously nosy and at once fascinated and horrified by anything relating to naughty bits in this country):
DON'T speculate about medical procedures transgender people may or may not choose to undertake as part of their transition. This is private medical information, and a transgender identity is not dependent on medical procedures. Overemphasizing the medical aspects of a person's transition objectifies transgender people, and prevents the public from seeing the transgender person as a whole person.
