  1. This book is a wolf in sheep's clothing. While it does a good job of countering stereotypes and letting kids know that, for instance, cars aren't just for boys, it uses that foundation to make the leap that trans people don't exist. "I'm a boy because God put XY in my genes. Hurrah, I don't have to choose." The "often bought together" list on Amazon consists of "The Health Hazards of Homosexuality." Please remove this book from your site! Thanks!
