Abstract:

Debunks the twenty-one most common myths and misconceptions about transgender issues. --Publisher.

We have a lot of expectations about people based on their gender, and when someone doesn't fit into those expectations it can become difficult to handle, and perhaps even lead to hostility. But chances are you've met one (or more) transgender person, and not even been aware of it. Erickson-Schroth and Jacobs debunk the most common myths and misconceptions about transgender issues, bringing together medical, social, psychological and political aspects of the subject.
