Transgender etc…I Wonder

I was just reading a recent article in Time magazine about the floating gender folks, and wonder how many of them were incest survivors…or just survivors of child sexual abuse. I’ve been trying to see if I can think of myself as non-binary and maybe I could if it weren’t for the genitals.  But the young children who are coming out non-binary.  How is their choice connected to their genitals? How do they know about choice re the genitals if they’re not even that knowledgeable about where babies come from?  If they’re educated in that area I wonder if they should be.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.

    Putting confusing ideas in young children’s minds and taking away their innocence of sexual matters before they are mature enough…couldn’t that be abusive itself?

      I have NO KNOWLEDGE of any transgender being incested or otherwise sexually abused as a child. It’s just my imagination and wondering how early decisions could have happened, and how much the genitals are included in their decisions. Thanks for your bservation, however.
