i am the problem.

It ain't no use to talk to me; it's just the same as talkin' to you!

For as far back as Joy Ladin can remember, her body didn’t match her soul. Gender defines us from the moment we’re born. But, how is that related to the lifelong work of being at home in ourselves? You’ve got to check out our show this week, "Gender and the Syntax of Being." Krista’s interview with her explores this question through Joy’s story of transition from male to female — as a poet, as a parent, and as a the first openly transgender woman teaching in an Orthodox Jewish world.

This was really validating and encouraging for me. I related to a lot of what she said. A lot of people I’ve tried to talk with about gender are either defensive or just can’t relate.

I hope you’ll listen to this if you give a shit about me. Or have or do not have feelings or dysphoria about gender. Maybe especially if you don’t experience gender dysphoria.
