I just read a rather interesting series of profiles on the Huffington Post about trans educators. They talked about the hazards of being trans in the era of Cheeto Mussolini. This is another one of those places where I’m very lucky to have the job I have and the protections I have.
More than that, though, I’ve had very supportive colleagues so far. I know there will be people who object, people who don’t understand, and people who talk out of school about me to others. So far, though, it’s been really great. And I’m standing up so it’s easier for others to stand up. That’s very important to me.
