Laura Erickson-Schroth and Laura A. Jacobs
Beacon, 2017
ISBN 9780807033890


This "insightful and instructive primer" debunks the twenty-one most common myths and misconceptions about transgender issues--"buy this book and share it with [your] whole family" (Bust)

 From Laverne Cox and Caitlyn Jenner to Thomas Beatie ("the pregnant man") and transgender youth, coverage of trans lives has been exploding--yet so much misinformation persists. Bringing together the medical, social, psychological, and political aspects of being trans in the United States today, "You're in the Wrong Bathroom!" unpacks the twenty-one most common myths and misconceptions about transgender and gender-nonconforming people. Authors Laura Erickson-Schroth, MD, a psychiatrist, and Laura A. Jacobs, LCSW-R, a psychotherapist, address a range of fallacies:

 - Trans People Are "Trapped in the Wrong Body"
- You're Not Really Trans If You Haven't Had "the Surgery"
- Trans People Are a Danger to Others, Especially Children
- Trans People Are Mentally Ill and Therapy Can Change Them
- Trans People and Feminists Don't Get Along
