Summary, etc.:
"An authentic and accessible guide to understanding--and engaging in--today's gender conversation. The days of two genders--male, female; boy, girl; blue, pink--are over, if they ever existed at all. Gender is now a global conversation, and one that is constantly evolving. More people than ever before are openly living their lives as transgender men or women, and many transgender people are coming out as neither men or women, instead living outside of the binary. Gender is changing, and this change is gaining momentum. We all want to do and say the right things in relation to gender diversity--whether at a job interview, at parent/teacher night, and around the table at family dinners. But where do we begin? From the differences among gender identity, gender expression, and sex, to the use of gender-neutral pronouns like singular they/them, to thinking about your own participation in gender, Gender: Your Guide serves as a complete primer to all things gender. Guided by professor and gender diversity advocate Lee Airton, PhD, you will learn how gender works in everyday life, how to use accurate terminology to refer to transgender, non-binary, and/or gender non-conforming individuals, and how to ask when you aren't sure what to do or say. It provides you with the information you need to talk confidently and compassionately about gender diversity, whether simply having a conversation or going to bat as an advocate. Just like gender itself, being gender-friendly is a process for all of us. As revolutionary a resource as Our Bodies, Ourselves, Gender: Your Guide invites everyone on board to make gender more flexible and less constricting: a source of more joy, and less harm, for everyone. Let's get started"-- Provided by publisher.

Airton, founder of the blog They Is My Pronoun, brings clarity and simplicity to supporting the trans community. With great sensitivity and transparency, the author explains all there is to know about being trans in modern society and how allies can best support their trans friends. This how-to guide includes notes on what pronouns to use and when, how to advocate safely in one-on-one settings, and what to do if you make a mistake. Airton provides helpful charts and exercises to go along with personal anecdotes and brings in two linguists to help settle various debates around pronoun use. This is an invaluable resource for both new and veteran allies, especially with Airton's empathetic approach, which regularly acknowledges and validates challenges. Despite the brevity of the work, the author packs an incredible amount of information and advice into clear and succinct prose. General readers and scholars alike will benefit from the "gender-friendly toolkit" and Airton's straightforward explanations and advice. VERDICT This guide is unlike anything else available today, and an obvious and necessary item for collections of all kinds.-Abby Hargreaves, Dist. of Columbia P.L. © Copyright 2018.
