“It’s Okay to be Neither,” By Melissa Bollow Tempel

This article made me tear up.http://togetherforjacksoncountykids.tumblr.com/post/14314184651/one-teachers-approach-to-preventing-gender-bullying-in
As a teacher and as someone who has always been the "oddball" this gave me hope.

I came here to friend you and read this--it made my heart break a little. One of my dear friends is genderqueer (he doesn't use the term trans very often, but basically he's a non-op FTM), and when I read about Allie all I could think about was how that would have so been my friend as a kid. Awesome article! (And I can't help thinking that the teacher is really brave. I know a lot of parents who would be furious with her for teaching that curriculum.)
