I'd be grateful for any advice. My DD has recently become interested in who is a girl and who is a boy. I think it's partly her age and partly because on a CD (that we like overall) of Mr. Rogers, Mr. Rogers introduces one song saying something like "when you are born a boy, you are a boy and when you're born a girl, you are a girl." This language bothers me and DP, especially because my DP does not identify as male or female. Interestingly, my DD will say "Mama, you are a girl and Baba is sort of a girl and sort of boy." so she has some understanding of the fluidity of gender. However, I'd like to explore gentle way to introduce the concepts of transgender, genderqueer, bigender, pangender, genderless, etc. Any suggestions about how to bring these up in a natural way with a young child?
Thanks in advance!
