Thanks @RitaTG for your calm perseverance in the face of hurtful comments. I can only imagine that this a small example of what you've experienced in real life

This thread and meeting trans people in real life has taught me so much.

Apparently, Judaism recognizes 6 or 7 genders. Male, female, androginos (both male and female), tumtum (neither male or female), m to f, and f to m. (One of the latter two is further subdivided into whether the transition is 'natural' or not, but that sorta escaped me. )

Imagine all the peculiar things some folk avoid and thus do not learn anything NU ...

Yes, and now I see it. Different category for 'natural' male to female. I assume that, given the time period these things are being discussed, that 'intervention' male to female would be a eunuch, the only concept that seems to have migrated from Judaism to Christianity.

I am back....
Some news regarding that evangelical church I was negotiating with to host a town hall style forum regarding trans issues.
Unfortunately the pastor passed away suddenly so we are back to square one.
He was such a nice person and he was open to trying to host such a dialogue.
He is missed by so many in the Sudbury area community including me. (and not just because of this project)
Hopefully I will have some further news in a few weeks. There may still be an opportunity.

Too bad but glad to hear the door isn't closed. Good luck on this.

Bravo! Terrific video. The students, and the star, did a great job. Should prompt some discussion here and elsewhere.

And nice to see you again @RitaTG. Welcome back.
