Earlier this month, UU World published an article that was harmful to trans people. The article has generated many responses and much needed conversations in the UU community. Below is a list of all the responses to the article, from both the UU trans community as well as some cis UUs.

If you know of any responses we've missed, please send them to jsylvan@uua.org
