Sexist Language & How Do I Know if I’m Transgender?

infographic_16x9_992.jpg

"Grow a pair." "Man up." "Way to go, LADIES."  In this episode cis girl Kath asks transgender girl Faith discuss how sexist langague seems to permeate our culture. We also discuss the normal process of questioning, self-doubt and confusion that many transpeople go through as they decide to transition or not. 

And if you want to order your own custom "I hope your day sucks. I hope your day treats you like someone who's willing to put their mouth on your genitals to make you feel good. And I hope you are tough enough to take the kind of pounding vaginas can take" then check out this etsy page. They'll make one for you.

Here are the two ads: 
Secret Deoderant Transgender Ad
Danish Electronics Store Transgender Ad
