Topic: Education

Some of us are in school and some of us are not. Presumably all of us have experience with some form of education. Let's talk about being trans in school. Being in school before we knew we were gender nonconforming or nonbinary. Being in school while we were figuring out gender. What kind of education do we want people to have about gender and trans folks? What kind of information should be dispersed to the wider public? What do fellow trans people still need to learn? What do we still need to learn? Bring your thoughts, yourself, your experiences, and your wisdom.

Silly question: What's something you learned in the past 24 hours?

Recharging

It can be a common experience for genderqueer folk that the jobs we get are not always the most affirming spaces we could imagine. Even if those spaces are not actively harmful our process of recovering from aggressively normative spaces can be unique to us. Let's talk about how we recharge and when we recharge as genderqueer/nonbinary/gender nonconforming folks.

Silly Question: What kind of charging device would you be? (Horse? Sling shot? One of those wind up cars? iPhone?)
