- 10 Essential Books for Parents of Transgender Children
The title for this piece began as “Essential Books for Parents of Transgender Children.” Then became “Essential Books for Parents of Gender Nonconforming Children.” Then “Essential Books for Parents of…Nonconforming Children,” which I shortened to, “Essential Books for Parents” because, let’s face it, no one’s children always conform. Then I realized the list wasn’t even necessarily about parenting and thought “Essential Books for Humans Who Have Ever Felt Different or Nonconforming Themselves or Loved Someone Who Did” about covered it. And since that’s everyone, it became just “Essential Books for Humans.”
