They’re Not Preferred Pronouns, They’re Mandatory: A Resource Round-Up for Aspiring Allies to Transgender, Gender-Variant, Intersex, & Nonbinary Folks I just compiled this list, I did not write any of the resources linked below, nor do I own them. I did, however, read all of them. If you still have questions after reading , as well as my own Op-Eds and literally everything by all of the linked pages and files Allison Washington, feel free to reach out to me, and I will do my best to answer your query.

NOTE: Please take the above video with a grain of salt and some critical thinking. Being repulsed by specific genitals is not unilaterally transphobic . Saying that you’re a straight man, but wouldn’t date a transwoman, for example, would be transphobic. However , if you say that you’re a straight man, and don’t feel comfortable dating people with the same genitalia as you? That’s not necessarily transphobic. This video is a great ice-breaker on the topic, but is not necessarily as nuanced as I would like, as a rape survivor who can understand why someone may be repulsed by certain anatomy due to trauma; please understand that this is a short piece on a complex topic.
