We live in a society which deems transgender people (those who identify as a gender other than that which they were assigned at birth) as being a type of “other,” which results in incredibly unjust obstacles.

But because cisgender people (those who identify with the gender they were assigned at birth) do not encounter these obstacles, or do so at a much lower frequency, they may not realize that they have some advantages as they move through the world.
