    One thought on “"You're in the Wrong Bathroom!": And 20 Other Myths and Misconceptions about Transgender and Gender-Nonconforming People”

    1. This book is well-written and broken up into easily digestible chunks, but I found it difficult to read for other reasons.This book is by trans women who are medical professionals. It's grounded in the history of the movement, research studies, and more recent events. It does incorporate dated terminology in service of describing each myth as people heard it, which I think is effective in terms of reaching the target audience. I'm glad I read it because it's given me a greater understanding of w [...]

    2. Written in easy to understand language (but maybe too difficult for a Republican congressman) this book discusses popular misconceptions about transgender people. For cisgender people, especially loved ones and allies, this book is an invaluable source of information.For transpeople who are learning about themselves, it is a crucial read. The resources section at the end of the book is worth its weight in gold-pressed latinum- for all transpeople and their allies. I discovered nothing new in the [...]

    3. Good info, perhaps too academic As it is now LGBT Pride Month it seemed like this would be a good book to read. In light of the hysteria over transgender people using what bathrooms the title and book seemed quite apt for giving people much needed information.  The book is basically what it says on the tin: the authors look at 21 myths about transgender people. Some are probably familiar to the reader: that transgender people use the "wrong" bathroom if they don't "look" a certain way, that tr [...]

    4. This book is very well-written. Manageable chapters, broken up by myth, and grounded in historical context. I found it to be a humbling read and uncomfortable in some places. It's troubling to know that I have bought into some of these myths. I'm happy to have had the chance to read this and will continue to keep learning.

    5. Such a wonderful 101-level book that debunks important myths about transgender and gender non-conforming folks. I love Beacon Press for doing this series, and "You're in the Wrong Bathroom" is a terrific installment.

    6. I met my first trans person in 1983. He was the best man at the wedding and all over one of the bridesmaids. He was dark, swarthy, with middle-eastern looks, heavy black eye brows, lots of chest curls climbing out of his shirt top. Later, my friends told me he often dressed in women's clothing and secretly wanted to be a woman. WHAT? I soon saw him again dressed and made up as a woman and we had an uncomfortable dinner with him. He looked like a Halloween idea gone terribly wrong. Since then, Je [...]

    7. This book, which I received through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program, is an excellent resource for educators. The matter of fact tone is appropriate for both adolescent and adult audiences. Short, tightly focused chapters balance readability with historical and social science references. Referenced works are fully cited in the back matter of the book, providing a strong basis for further inquiry, without impacting the clear nature of the text, or cluttering the body of the book with foot [...]

    8. This book not only included fascinating history on transgender and gender nonconforming people, but it also included very informative and helpful information on all aspects of transgender people and the society we all live in. I feel like I am more understanding of the transgender people I have met in my life, and I feel like a stronger LGBTQA+ ally after reading this book.

    9. This is a wonderfully written book. I would have liked a glossary of some of the terms as I got a bit confused on some and had to try and find the explanation in past chapters. Other than that bit, I was well pleased with how the book was edited. Each chapter is a myth that I know causes consternation in the conservative world. The reader may already know quite a bit, or think they do. But this will help explain in clear concise language what might be going through the transgender person's mind [...]

    10. As someone who is transgender, the information in this book really rang true for me; these are really the sentiments/myths I've encountered when talking to cisgender people, well-meaning and otherwise. The authors did a great job presenting what transwomen experience.ough, yes, the experiences of transmen weren't dealt with as well. I don't fault them much for that. It's really hard for one side of the community to explain the experiences of the other. If they write a revised edition later on, m [...]

    11. “You’re in the Wrong Bathroom: And 20 Other Myths and Misconceptions about Transgender and Gender-Nonconforming People by Laura Erickson-Schroth and Laura A. Jacobs is a timely exploration and debunking of many of the myths and fallacies about transgender people. It’s written in a very readable style with each question making up an individual chapter. The authors are open and honest about each question and while readers may be familiar with many of the concepts discussed, there is likely t [...]

    12. Let's say it's not ahead of its times, but it's a useful repository of ideas. And it should reveal helpful and informative as a first foray into transness for complete novices. But be warned that this is a dry, if easy to read, cataloguing of all the different ways one can experience each aspect of transness. This, I assume, is for the sake of nuance, but what it really does is kill all nuance and flow.More importantly, I was uncomfortable with the tone of the book, without being able to exactly [...]

    13. "You're in the Wrong Bathroom" contains a bunch of short essays each confronting different commonly-held myths about transgender and gender-nonconforming folks. It is a very quick read, and quite informative. If you've heard a lot about "bathroom bills" and don't know what the fuss is about, or maybe you've heard about the recent Trump ban on trans folks serving in the military, and you're interested in finding out more about transgender and gender-nonconforming lives, this would be a great firs [...]

    14. This is a very useful book. I learned quite a bit, even though I talk to transgender people and their family members a lot and have read other books on these topics. It will probably need frequent revision, given the evolution in legal and political trends, sociological knowledge about gender non-binary people, and terminology. One virtue of the book is consiseness. Along with that goes comprehensiveness: you get a lot of ideas and statistics in a small space, the authors making each point clear [...]

    15. I think the book was a informative and timely book. It discussed the attitudes and misconceptions many people have over the transgender that live amoung us. I believe this book will help people who think somehow transgendered are to be feared and see they are no different than you or me. They just dream and right to be of living to be who they are. I was impressed so I donated it to the head of psychology at my local mental health center for use by clinicians and clients.

    16. A brisk read, this book examines various myths about transgender and gender nonconforming people. The book is organized by examination of various myths and ideas. For example, Myth 14 (and thus, chapter 14) explores the myth that Trans people are mentally ill and therapy can change them. For me, especially intriguing were the sections of the book devoted to history and culture. I also loved the resources found in back of the book including books for further reading.

    17. A good introduction to trans issues. I've followed the online discourse in feminist and LGBTQ circles for a while, but I have read very few books about trans history and experiences, and I found this a helpful primer. I'm glad I read it.

    18. If you're not familiar with the contemporary and confusing world of gender this is a great book to get some answers. You probably know someone who is transgendered or gender-nonconforming so this title could be very helpful.

    19. I've given thus book 4 stars because it challenges myths about gender and sexuality that need to be discussed openly. The author provides information and insight into gender identity and how it does or does not affect sexuality. While it's not an award winning book, it is an eye opening book.

    20. This book exposes myths of the transgender. Am seeking to understand these transgender folks. This book did not help me with that, but see the need to point out the myths. If you know or love a transgender this book will give insight. Thanks to

    21. This is an excellent book for educators, students, anyone really, and has a fantastic list of resources at the end: mental health supports, books, movies, legal, etc.

    22. I won this book through . Very enjoyable and educational book. Contains many facts on a growing and misunderstood community.

    23. A straight-forward and easy-to-read text that tackles a lot of the myths about transgender people that I read about from angry posters on internet forums. Some of the notable ones (or the ones I've heard most often) are the notions that transgender people are out to "trick" cisgender people, that all feminists are opposed to the transgender rights movement, that being transgender and being gay are somehow one and the same, and that therapy can "cure" transgenderism.There's a great bibliography o [...]
