Sex ed talks with Maya

Conversation yesterday morning.

 

  • Me – I won’t be able to come for evening walk, I have a live today.
  • Maya – With arjun uncle again?
  • Me – No.. That was for fathers day.
  • I have another guest today.
  • Maya – so what special day it is today?
  • Me – well…it is no special day… But.. (thinking about how to explain pride month)… it is a month long festival. It is called Pride month.. Or let’s say, it is the rainbow festival & people who love the Rainbow are celebrated.
  • Maya – I love the Rainbow.
  • Me – yes you do… (decided not to go deep into it now) so as I was saying, today I have a guest who is a transwoman. Do you remember we had that conversation some time back?
  • Maya – Not much. Who is a transwoman.?
  • Me – Transwoman is someone who was born with a boy body (she doesn’t understand the concept of male) but they’ve always felt like a girl. So they are living life now as a woman.
  • Maya – yeah now I remember we spoke about it.
  • Me – yes so I’m talking to someone who is now a girl, but was born with a boy body.
  • Maya – I am born with a girl body and I don’t feel like a boy Amma.
  • Me – Right OK. But if you ever feel like it, let me know ok.. I’ll support you however you are.
  • Maya – No Amma. I’m very sure I am a girl.
  • Me – OK ok. But if you have any friends who feel they are different what will you tell them.?
  • Maya – I’ll just tell them to be whoever they want to be.
  • Me – That’s good. We must never Bully anyone that feels differently OK.
  • Maya – I will never Amma. I’m very kind.
  • Me – I know honey.

 

(sex-ed note – The right usage is – ‘assigned male/female at birth’. I plan to introduce the words- male & female body by age 8 when she understands better. As of now she just knows there are people who don’t feel themselves with certain bodies, & thats natural, which is age appropriate for her)
