    1. Transphobia Deal with It and Be a Gender Transcender by J Wallace Skelton is a short book but full of much needed info, unfortunately This book is made for middle school and up It starts by letting the reader know what trans gender is and what it isn t then what the transphobia is There are multiple examples of transphobia behavior, those blatant and those subtle that seem harmless The book gives quizzes then discusses the section at the end Myths are also discussed The book is great for those t [...]

    2. i only added it to my tbr because gender transcender is the best fuckin phrase i ve heard in my life and i want it in common usage at once

    3. This book was really good It s aimed at kids 9 and up, but it doesn t talk down to its audience in any way It presents its information in comics all of them making their points perfectly , lists, and quizzes It helps readers learn to distinguish between transphobia, sexism, and cluelessness It provides responses that allow a person to Speak Up rather than Put Up or Flare Up It covers a wide variety of situations and helps the reader prepare themself to handle them gracefully This book is an awes [...]

    4. I read this on the Kindle app, so the pictures and sometimes text got a bit jumbled, but that was a problem on my end, not the publisher s I was able to read most of it just fine, though, and what I read was quite good This is a great pick for classrooms and libraries It addresses misconceptions, encourages readers to try to love and feel comfortable with themselves, and offers potential real life instances of transphobia for students to consider It s very positive, but does not shy away from ha [...]

    5. A fantastic resource for both transgender and cisgender people alike Transphobia Deal with It and Be a Gender Transcender packs a lot into a small book, from a 101 introduction to being transgender, to human rights information and statistics, to what to do if you witness transphobia, to how to cope with transphobia and take care of yourself.There are fun quizzes and exercises throughout that put readers through hypothetical scenarios a substitute teacher who refuses to use someone s chosen corre [...]

    6. This book is written for children ages 8 and up It is illustrated and has little quizzes that have questions to help guide the reader through different scenarios It is set in Canada and refers to Canadian laws in a few places I think it is a good, clear explanatory book about gender for tweens and teens.

    7. Transphobia is a book written and illustrated for children the language suggests older children and young adults which looks at how our actions can by choice or design be transphobic It could be read by young people independently, but it does lend itself to a structured setting, such as a youth group or classroom, or even a book parents and children could read together.The book follows a similar format to the workbooks that are used in social studies lessons in the UK It s vibrant, with lots of [...]

    8. Another ARC read is Transphobia by J Wallace Skeleton It is a kid s non fiction book dealing with transgender issues As a gender transcender I feel the book would be a good gateway into a discussion about what it means to be trans Goodness knows it s a discussion that we should be having with everyone so misinformation isn t spread My only red flag would be the inclusion of the word transsexual Gender and sexuality are two separate things so using a word like transsexual confuses people when you [...]

    9. This is an excellent introduction to gender identity and expression, aimed at middle school grades and above, with comics, examples, quizzes, and lists of do s and don ts that challenge readers to question assumptions about gender and sex, stereotypes, and the use of pronouns or chosen names A short and accessible book, the illustrations take care to show diversity in gender, ethnicity, and abilities and the back of the book has links to further resources, such as helplines, other books, and org [...]

    10. I thought this book was well set out but was disappointed as there were no answers to the quiz sections and I am not sure why there are no British help sites or associations mentioned as I feel that there must be some If not Childline would probably be able to help.I was given this book by Netgalley and the publisher This is my voluntary review.

    11. cool but super Canadian I think my students will be confused by washroom and such , plus I wish the illustrations had body type size diversity though in all other ways the diverse depictions in this book ruled.

    12. I chose to read Transphobia Deal with It and be a Gender Transcender because I am in the process of overcoming my own transphobia and figured a kids book that explained things super simply would be a good place to start I stand up for Trans rights because I know that being transphobic is wrong I know that it doesn t matter what gender a person is I know it, and yet part of me still has trouble accepting it Transphobia is a 32 page book for Canadian children that deals both with how to deal with [...]

    13. 3.5 stars I received an ARC of this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my own I m not sure I was completely comprehended what was in this book because the formatting for the book was so messed up It was all over the place and very difficult to read because sentences would cut out halfway through and then be continued two or three pages later As a trans person, I d say this book is mostly for cis people Pretty much everything in here is stuff trans people would [...]

    14. I was excited to see a Canadian book on this topic, while recognizing that we shouldn t have to HAVE books on discrimination in the first place This is a new release from James Lorimer Books, the latest in the Deal With It series which tackles discrimination issues in colourful, illustrated books aimed primarily at middle school readers In just 32 pages, children learn what transphobia is and how they can be gender transcenders The language is age appropriate, and the cartoon like illustrations [...]

    15. I received this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.This book is a good middle school read about transgender individuals, respecting their rights, their feelings, their name and their pronouns It teaches the reader how to identify transphobia and how to handle or battle against it While some people have suggested it s too Canadian Is that a thing Is it like being too polite I really don t think children in the proper age range middle school will have any trouble with the semant [...]

    16. Do we need another book on transgender and transphobia Yeah, unfortunately, we do As long as there are people out there that don t get it, the we will need these sorts of books And this book is very clear, and gives examples of how to know if you are being transphobic, and what you can do about it.The books uses cute, bright cartoons, as well as cleaver and funny situations to explain their points The people include POC and is very diverse.This book is apparently part of a series The other book [...]

    17. While it s sad that we need a book like this due to lack of understanding and empathy from corner of society it s still a great little nugget For such a short book, this is packed with a lot of advice and, dare I say it, should be something on school curriculum if for no other reason than to spread understanding.

    18. this book is a great resource for middle school students and people of all ages it provides information for kids questioning their gender identity as well as kids who simply want to know about trans issues and combatting transphobia the illustrations were cute and included lots of diversity.

    19. Perhaps as someone from the US, I am not in the best position to say whether this Canadian book is a good resource It uses the word transsexual, which we do not here any, and reads like it s playing off of school lessons which kids here just don t have.

    20. I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewWhen I saw this was a book explaining transgender things with a middle grade target audience, I was so excited to read it I was already thinking in my head who to recommend this to before I opened it Unfortunately, as I read, the star rating kept going down in my mind The only excuse I can come up with is that this book was published in Canada and I live in the US, so the culture may differ.Pros Overall, this is a good source for c [...]

    21. This was a good book, especially for the target youth audience It s a very open book regarding gender and identity that would be good for kids to have a better understanding of I was happy to read this because looking at it, it doesn t feel like a lot of other LGBT books I ve read, even youth aimed books don t always come across as welcoming as this, which could make it appealing to pick up and read through The content itself is explained very well and covers a lot considering it s a fairly sm [...]

    22. A quick read for little ones who are curious about the trans trend This book includes activities, quizzes, and basic info on transgender and transphobia.While this book does give you a basic overview of what trans is, it didn t really delve into the subject I wanted to know why transgenders think and feel this way, and the book just struck me as a simple pamphlet or poster I liked that the book encouraged the readers to be kind to their peers regardless of their orientation but I was severely di [...]

    23. I would love to see this book in sex ed classes everywhere It covers in a way tweens, teens, and adults can understand Transphobia and what to do when you see it happening In today s world, where LGBT are often ostracized, ridiculed, and bullied by peers and those in authority positions, this book is important than ever.

    24. A quick read and an excellent book for everyone to understand prejudice within culture and gender better as well as studying some of the issues that trans and non gender people deal with everyday Also a great book to make people think and consider their treatment of other people, the harm it causes and how it s against the law and can be legally challenged.
