Online video course to learn about children across the gender spectrum

Stanford University has come out with a free online course to help people learn about gender identity issues, particularly with regard to children.  Wow!  What a great resource!  It consists of several short videos made up of conversations with transgender kids and their parents, and some assignments.  It looks like the time commitment is pretty reasonable--a total of 3 hours, one hour each week.  I'm excited to check this out.

If you think you are maybe in too small of a town to need to know about this this, think again.  I have known two kids who identify as transgender, both from VERY small towns in rural Wisconsin. I hope you will consider taking the time to learn more about this complicated topic!
