Nice Lindsey. Teachers are definitely on the front lines. So are parents. As a mom of a trans son it is heartwarming to hear you acknowledge they want to be seen. But not necessarily as trans but as the normal gender they identify with. A trans girl really just wants to be included in the slumber party as another girl.

This generation is brave. That is correct. Dressing and presenting as their preferred gender is the outward presence of who they are. Period. So what they , abd everyone else, sees in the mirror matches who they are inside. Versus this idea of it being “chosen” or “put on”.

Hope that makes sense. Thank you for writing this and thank you for being there for Carlos. 😊
