Educating Yourself with Trans Films

Folks at MIT have shared the following two videos with me, and I thought I'd pass them along! The first one is a great start for someone who's trying to understand the difference between sex, gender, gender role and sexual orientation (but you must excuse the retro synth music...) It's more classroom style, whereas the second video is more guerilla education, giving you a glimpse into the types of ridiculous and offensive things people say to trans people regularly. (I love those folks from TransFix!)
