Publisher's Summary

In a world that suffers from intolerance and discrimination, every bit of information about being transgender is valuable for transgender people themselves, their families, their friends, and the general public.
Being transgender is a reality that is slowly, but surely, being understood. Out of the many biological and psychological theories that attempts to explain it, the mirror effect provides some of the best clues. Through this effect and the other available theories, misconceptions can be debunked, errors can be corrected, and most importantly, true understanding can be achieved.
The term "transgender" may be relatively young, but gender dysphoria may have existed since ancient times. Only in more recent years has being transgender been identified, studied, and most importantly, labeled. Words are powerful and they create an anchor in which transgender people can either define or refuse to define themselves.
By listening to Transgender: The Mirror Effect you will learn:

About transgender identities & behaviors
Differences between gender & sexuality
About gender identity development & dysphoria
What the mirror effect is
About transitioning
Much, much more!
Transgender people fight an uphill battle in a world that may not yet be fully ready for their acceptance. However, with information available, like this audiobook, the battle may prove to be victorious both for those who are transgender - through acceptance - and those who are not - through understanding.

Terrible coverage of an important topic

This is an overly simplistic and potentially harmful book about a very complex subject. Although I dont think the author intended it, the whole mirroring concept comes across as if Transgender people have "learned" behaviors that have caused them to be transgender. If the purpose of discussing "mirroring" is to try to explain how one could become dysphoric, the intention is not clear and could be easily misconstrued and therefore not helpful in bringing to light how transgender people are simply born this way.
