What’s Current: Canadian Paediatric Society releases guide for parents to discuss ‘gender identity’ with kids

  • The Canadian Paediatric Society has released a new document to guide conversations around “gender identity” with parents and children. The Globe and Mail reports:

“The four-page document starts by clarifying such terms as gender identity — the gender one experiences one’s self to be — and gender expression — how someone presents gender to others through clothing, behaviour or a chosen name.”

  • A recent poll shows that women are substantially more likely to consider sexual harassment an important issue during congress voting.
  • Ninety year old Nova Scotia man, Delmore Boudreau, has been charged with 12 sexual offences that occurred between 1966 and 1986. More victims are expected to come forward.
  • Christiane Amanpour will replace PBS’s Charlie Rose, who was accused of sexual misconduct in November.
