Link Round-Up: Gender & Children

One of the things I found myself exploring a lot in the past year was the question of gender and children. I've written a few posts on this blog about Brother-Bug's adventures with gender. I've read a lot of blogs and articles about children and gender.

This post is a collection of some of my favorite pieces, and links to the relevant gender-related pieces on this blog. I'm putting this out there, encouraging you to read these pieces, because one of the biggest challenges of raising a gender-non-conforming person is that not enough people are learning about and talking about and thinking about how to support our fabulous children. There are still far too many people in this world who are okay with girls in pants and deeply uncomfortable with a boy in a skirt. Let's change that.
