I first walked into Meg’s class with very limited knowledge on gender. At the time, I was still holding on to some of the outdated ideology relating to gender identity. I learned so much more than I assumed I would, but those were the things that I needed to learn subconsciously. It was amazing that Meg created a space that was both comfortable enough to learn and grow while also challenging existing schema. Beyond that, you taught the class with all of your authentic self and that was nothing short of inspiring. Seeing you teaching the class so passionately while refusing to negotiate your identity really helps me with mine, as well as with my progress with the material. To sum it up, I didn’t think it was possible to teach someone the basics on all of the nuances related to gender identity but you did.
