Gender Controversy and Confusion
June 10, 2014
Hosted by Dr. Carole Lieberman
More and more headlines relate to the horrendous treatment of gays, lesbians and transgenders - not just by adults, but by schoolchildren. Recent headlines include a high school student who describes himself as a gender-non-conforming gay person suing his school for insensitivity to bullying, and the controversy over transgender kids and school bathrooms. How do you protect the psychological well-being of all children? How does increasing sensitivity to sexual orientation affect children who are too young to even fully understand sexuality? Today's guest, Dr. Elizabeth Meyer, is a professor at California Polytechnic State University in the School of Education, the author of Gender, Bullying and Harassment, and the editor of Supporting Transgender and Gender-Creative Youth. Her experience as a former high school teacher has given her an inside perspective.
