Dal Gender and Women's Studies Collective

GWSS stands in support of Chaz Bono, the first transgendered contestant on Dancing With the Stars. I believe that the image of an openly transgendered person on TV will offer children working with gender dysphoria an example of someone who struggled with the same issues. Those who claim that this image is “toxic” to children obviously do not have the compassion or awareness to understand that people are different and does not make the wrong or evil.
