    Hi Kate
    I'm swimming through Amazon tonight trying to find a book. To explain gender. To my 2-yr-old.

    My BFF and I are both transgendered - she more radically so than I (my daughter will have questions about my friend's body some day), whereas I'm generally not readable as the in-between person I am.

    The books about what makes a boy a boy, and a girl a girl, are problematic. They say, unequivocally, that every baby is either a boy or a girl. That all girls have a vagina, all boys have a penis.

    This seems simple enough for a 2-yr-old. Entrancing, really. A lovely simple world. But I feel uncomfortable reading these to her... and sad that there's no alternative way to tell the story. I hesitate to make up my own words, not wanting her to get confused as she establishes initial footing...

    So I thought of you. Your next book, Kate. There are many intersex and quietly transgendered toddlers out there looking for a different way to hear the story. There are non-binary parents needing a way to tell it.

    Will you write it for us?

    The book seems intriguing for me. Besides the fact that it touches the sensitive topic about sex, I’m wondering what’s in it that it is distinctive when compared to the other advice books. I may grab a copy of it and find out the secret myself.
