September 7 through the 22 But remember they offer special pricing for homeschoolers throughout the year at their group sales office Fun–and fun learning is forever learning Ann Simpson Written by Radhika Iyengar | New Delhi | Updated: December 27 2016 6:58 pm The two covers for the January 2017 issue (Image: nationalgeographiccom) Top News On the proposed January 2017 cover of National Geographic a nine-year-old Avery Jackson sits confidently on a couch The spine of her body maps the recline of the furniture Avery’s body language is calm composed sure She’s looking at the camera head on Avery is a transgender child The cover and the statement the publication is trying to make is groundbreaking It’s the first for National Geographic and it sends out a telling message: times are changing and the world needs to be shown how important it is to discard preconceived perceptions and prejudices particularly relating to gender On its website the magazine supplied its readers with context: “We published an issue focused on gender at a time when beliefs about gender are rapidly shifting” There is truth to that Of late the emergence of small independent geographically scattered transgender projects indicate that there is a larger intellectual universal movement gaining momentum In the United States for example the Keswanis are an Indian family who appear on a reality web-series called The Keswanis: A Most Modern Family The show features a six-year-old Devina Keswani who is a transgender child Devina has a magnetic pull – she is flamboyant outspoken and supremely confident But it’s her endearing nature that is admirable It pushes viewers to abandon their inherent biases and accept her because there is no way you can ignore her The show attempts to (among other things) remould the perception of a community which has for centuries been sidelined But it’s also a fierce supporter of the idea that individuals should be allowed to be comfortable in their own skin The fact that The Keswanis: A Most Modern Family exists and is watched is a strong indicator that society is gradually transforming Watch video Social stigma and fear of persecution have enveloped the community for centuries Transgenders have been forced to pitch their lives in the shadows – at the periphery of society – miles away from its fundamental core – “the normal” In India the transgender community known as hijras have been invisible but arguably also ultra-visible While the hijras exist at the margins almost every Indian has seen or interacted with a hijra Professionally they make a living subsisting on attending the birth of a child in a family – a majority of the time uninvited – and celebrating by dancing and singing in a jovial baritone Or they have asked for alms on the streets In contemporary discourse very rarely has there been a space reserved for a dialogue relating to the transgender community Universally transgenders have been ostracised or shunned Very rarely have they been accepted Since a transgender challenges the norm by being anatomically defiant or sexually perverse; and since transgender individuals exhibit eccentric radically different modes of living – they are labeled as the ‘other’ Historically society has laid down a demarcation between the “us” and the “other” where the latter a minority has been straitjacketed by prejudices often marked by violent physical or psychological abuse or both It is the unnerving fear of the ‘other’ – a recurrent theme that dominates perceptions pertaining to race gender nationality and religion – that begets biases In Pakistan a predominantly conservative Muslim country transgenders share a vitriolic history of hatred and abuse While one transgender was recently flogged by a group of angry men (its video went viral) another 23-year-old was shot and later refused treatment which ultimately resulted in her death However an emerging undaunted tribe of activists in Pakistan is steadily but fiercely altering the narrative arc of its history Kami Sid a Pakistani transgender activist elegantly panned the lens towards her marginalised community Sid made international headlines when she appeared in a fashion shoot where she appeared poised and anchored while the statement she was making held the potential of causing a seismic shift In India Naina Singh is the youngest Indian who has come out and openly declared that she’s a transgender individual Since her declaration she’s been heavily covered by the media and Singh has used this as a platform to speak on gender-related issues and identity It’s this fearless assertion to not conform to be whoever one wants to be regardless of one’s biological identity is what makes me optimistic Sid and Singh represent the identity of modern transgender individuals who have established identities that are far from the traditional image of hijras Of course threads of class family and other threads also come into play here Does this suggest that the perception of transgenders has been altered reworked or re-defined Not entirely In fact that is an ambitious claim It will take decades for activists to chip away a mold of socially intolerant conservative thinking While National Geographic garnered exceptional support and a positive response for its ambitious cover it also drew considerable fury There were several readers who threatened to withdraw their subscription which were punctuated with demeaning condescending comments One reader used the word “degeneracy” to describe transgenders In the issue the magazine shared something extremely profound and poignant that was written by Science writer Robin Marantz Henig: “Scientists are uncovering new complexities in the biological understanding of sex Many of us learned in high school biology that sex chromosomes determine a baby’s sex full stop: XX means it’s a girl; XY means it’s a boy But on occasion XX and XY don’t tell the whole story” It will take time for the world to accept transgender individuals as equals However the fact that transgenders have finally been catapulted into mainstream conversations is perhaps evidence of a positive change For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsBy: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Updated: January 30 2017 9:41 am Vijay Mallya (Source: File Photo) Top News Agencies vet Vijay Mallya emails for proof of ‘undue favours’ Investigative agencies are thoroughly going through 15 lakhs emails of troubled liquor baron Vijay Mallya to gather evidence if any “undue favours” were given to his now defunct Kingfisher Airlines two sources said The emails were sent to senior company officials bankers and political leaders The result of the investigation may form a part of the CBI’s chargesheet which will be released in a few months A major portion of the loans to Kingfisher Airlines were sanctioned between the year 2006 and 2009 when Mallya was a Member of Parliament Read More Five dead in Quebec City mosque shooting An ambulance is parked at the scene of a fatal shooting at the Quebec Islamic Cultural Centre in Quebec City Canada January 29 2017 REUTERS/Mathieu Belanger Five people were killed early morning on Monday in Quebec City in Canada when three gunmen opened fire at mosque during prayers According to witnesses at least 40 people were inside the Quebec City Islamic Cultural Center Police have arrested two suspects and have set up a security perimeter around the mosque Read More Pune: Woman techie murdered on Infosys campus A 25-year old software engineer was strangled to death inside Infosys campus in Pune on Saturday The incident came just a month after a software engineer was brutally hacked to death in the city The police has identified the victim as Rasila Raju OP who was originally from Kerala Read More Kairana Moradabad will be under curfew if I win says BJP MLA When contacted BJP MLA Suresh Rana said he did not make any controversial remark Bhawan Suresh Rana BJP MLA from Thana district in Uttar Pradesh who is named in cases related to 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots said that curfew will be imposed in Kairana Deoband and Moradabad if he wins the polls He is the the party’s candidate from the same seat in the forthcoming elections Read More Rahul Gandhi to appear at Bhiwandi court in defamation case Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi will be appearing at a court hearing at Bhiwandi in Thane district on Monday in connection with a defamation case over his alleged comment against RSS regarding Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination The Bhiwandi magistrate’s court granted Gandhi a bail in the previous hearing and had adjourned it to January 30 Read More For all the latest India News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top News Colonial Williamsburg has invited homeschoolers to visit and become immersed in the Revolutionary City.
