The Transgender Decision — World Science Festival
For your weekend viewing: part of a recorded discussion from the 2011 World Science Festival on the topic of children and gender identity.
The decision to change one’s gender, or even to decide to start this course of action, isn’t one to be taken lightly. Paul Vasey and Marc Breedlove speak of fellow psychologist Kenneth Zucker’s work in the field of transgender development. They debate issues of acceptance, whether the child can truly know, and how their view can change upon reaching puberty.
