Lots of us have had teachers that teach sex development in a very simple way. In fact, if you are here, you probably know even more than the teachers do about DSD.
Many of us feel a lot of emotions in class, when DSD and sex development comes up, but we don’t say anything at all. It can feel scary and hard to know what to do next.
In the heat of the moment, when you are frustrated or really excited to share with your teacher and class, you may not get your point across as clearly as you want. Try to talk with teachers when you feel calm. This will help you make your point and make sure they hear you. You don’t have to tell anyone about your condition to get across a point. You just want them to get the basic facts right
It’s also okay to not do anything about this for now and just let it go in one ear and out the other.
If you want to discuss DSD with your teacher, get creative and show them websites on DSD and sex development (like dsdteens.org, SickKids Toronto, & Accord Alliance). It’s easy enough just to give them the link so they can see some accurate and detailed information on DSD.
