I am Ryland – the story of a male-identifying little girl who didn’t transition

But I keep hearing the story of Ryland, a child who was born a female, whose parents have transitioned her to male at 5 years old. You can see the full story HERE, but in short, because their daughter identified herself as a boy, and liked “boy” things as opposed to “girl” things, they cut off her hair, bought her “boy” clothes, and have begun telling her, and others, that she is a boy.

Why We Should Jettison the "Strong Female Character"

Following the success of the revival of the franchise in last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, anticipation is unsurprisingly at a fever pitch. As in the case of The Force Awakens, much of the pre-release speculation and comment has been preoccupied with the question of the representation of women and minorities within it.

The Ache of Divine Absence in 'The Banner Saga'

Whether it’s morbid curiosity, an element of wish-fulfillment, or simply humanity’s desire to ponder its own mortality, something about global destruction seems to appeal to creators and consumers of culture on a primal level. In recent years, especially, depictions of a post-civilization world have abounded in literature, film, television, and video games—a trend that some critics have attributed to a growing pessimism in our age.
