Transessualità: intervista a Ethan Caspani

In questo episodio di educare con calma ho invitato Ethan Caspani a parlare di transessualità.

Ethan è nato femmina, ma a 19 anni ha capito di essere un ragazzo trans e ha iniziato la transizione. In questo episodio ci racconta la sua storia, come l'hanno presa i suoi genitori, che difficoltà ha trovato con la società e mi (ci) insegna una delle realtà che credo sia importante conoscere per crescere figli rispettosi a tutto tondo. 

Parliamo anche della difficoltà di vivere in una lingua maschilista e dell'importanza di fare un minuscolo sforzo e usare i pronomi corretti quando ci riferiamo a persone trans (e se non li conosciamo, chiederli!). Ci tengo a ringraziare Ethan, non solo per condividere la sua storia con me, ma anche per avermi dato un bellissimo esempio di come calibrare le parole e parlare con rispetto. 

Quando cambiamo il linguaggio, iniziamo a cambiare l’educazione.

Trovate Ethan su Instagram come @caspisan.

Mums, dads & kids
We don't know how to be parents, we learn it everyday as we go. This is my way of motherhood, the small victories and the bitter defeats, my inconvenient truths and the endless life lessons. And also all the baby products and toys we love the most.
Montessori
One day a few years ago my husband came home and said, "Why don't we put a mattress on the floor in the baby room? It'd be much more natural". "Never" was my reply. That's how our Montessori journey started. Since then we've been living, breathing and applying the philosophy at home day in and day out, starting from ourselves. Because educating children starts from the parents.
Living sustainably
Living sustainably for me doesn’t only mean to have a more eco-friendly lifestyle. It means to make decisions that are sustainable for our planet, the people on it, but also for our life, our lifestyle, and our happiness. It means to take any daily chance to evolve and be happier, healthier, kinder, more responsible and more caring human beings—the only sustainable way for a meaningful future.
