Should Faith Come Out to Her Grandma?

Coming out to family is hard. But what about extended family members that you're not close with? In this week's episode we'll tackle the important question of whether Faith should come out as a transwoman to her highly conservative and religious grandmother. Is it worth it to keep things simple so other family members don't have to remember who you're out to yet? Or should one just not try and rock the familial boat? What do you think?

Dealing with Persistent Misgendering

o-FAMILY-ARGUMENT-facebook.jpg

No one likes to be misgendered. But what point do you stop being patient with people?  In episode we answer a listener question from James who asks "When does the grace period end? I’ve come out as trans to everyone in my life at this point, but there are a few who still aren’t getting it. They use the wrong pronouns, name, and never apologize. It’s been several months now and these 'problem people' are unavoidable. They’re at my work. In my family. And even a roommate. How many times do you kindly correct someone before you’re allowed to lose your patience?"

Are You Intimidated By Cis People?

Presenting as female is no small feat, even for cis women. Transwomen sometimes have a lot of catching up to do in the "living as a female" department. And cis women have had their entire lives to figure it out! Does that intimidate Faith?

Will My Halloween Costume “Out” Me As Trans?

(Note: skip to 16:29 for the BEST costume for closeted/ questioning MtFs seeking last-minute ideas.) Listener Jaylah is still male-presenting, and she asks if she can use a Halloween party as an opportunity to girl up for the first time.  Her important colleagues and awesome new friends will be at the party. Or will it raise too many eyebrows? The tricky theme for the party just increases the challenge level.  We say go for it, but of course you need an awesome costume, so we give lots of good suggestions. The Gender Rebels believe in you, Jaylah!

Does Transition Change Your Hogwarts House?

Listener Vanessa is asking the hard questions!  What if you used to be Gryffindor but now come up Ravenclaw? Are all transpeople automatically Gryffindor? What is the Sorting Hat's actual methodology of personality assessment? Is the Sorting Hat clairvoyant? And the name "Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry" is so binary. What do enbies do?
