AMA: Transgender Expert

5


5 per unit - Virtual OK - Posted Feb 27, 2017

As an "expert" on the empirical and theoretical aspects of the transgender experience, a transgender (non-binary) person, and a generally sociable individual, I'd like to offer my services/knowledge for those people (cisgender, or not transgender especially) who have questions that they want answered in a no-nonsense, easily digestible, and quick way. I'll provide this answer via message.

What sorts of questions? Well, AMA stands for "ask me anything," but so long as your question isn't personal (about me) or intentionally offensive/inflammatory (as determined by me), it's a question that deserves answering. I may or may not provide resources for further learning (links, reading suggestions, etc.), and cannot promise a turn-around faster than a week (though I should be much quicker).

Please be aware, I reserve all intellectual and actual copyrights to any provided answers and may choose to use a past answer for similar questions or in future writing (academic and otherwise). I will not, however, share your username and will anonymize any information provided in the question if I pursue this. I reserve the right to decide which questions I cannot or will not answer (and will generally tell you if I can't/won't in negotiation if you ask before paying); similarly, I refuse to answer questions of a personal nature.

Training & Qualifications


I am a transgender activist, academic, and expert. My first master's degree included a thesis titled Transgender Inclusion in the Workplace, I have a paper in press at AMLE titled Bringing Transgender Issues into Management Education, and a wealth of personal knowledge in addition to my academic knowledge on the topic.

Availability & Preferences


As this service will be provided over the internet, only, I will only be able to promise a week as turn-around time, though I will usually be much faster.

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

About Michael Robinson

I'm a graduate student in Organizational Behavior/Psychology. My research interests center around the effects of social identity in the workplace, especially transgender and queer identities. Addition...ally, I'm interested in followership and understanding why people choose to follow and how/if they incorporate that into their self-concepts. In the past I've taught K-8 music, and participate in the summer volunteering group that teaches English to disadvantaged Israeli children. When it comes to my abilities and services that I can offer the Simbi community, I have some experience in Gestalt Personal Development coaching and am certified for Leadership Development coaching. I've been reading tarot since I was 14 and used to read professionally for private clients and groups as well as other related forms of divination. I take a very no-nonsense orientation to divination; the point isn't to predict the future but to take a step back and better understand my client's context. What I've found is that simply by examining their context through the lens of tarot clients come to new and novel understandings of their presenting problems in order to really discover the roots of their issues. I believe that the future isn't set in stone and that future-oriented tarot only shows one possibility; I'd rather see how to reach the possibility desired by my client. I've also been tie-dyeing for years and would love to help teach others how to do fun and novel things like adding messages, symmetrical image, and more. While I don't offer it here yet, feel free to hit me up if you want advice or to have me help at a party or similar. When it comes to social services I'm looking for, I am always interested in learning new creative skills. Likewise, I speak very conversational (aka like a five-year-old's level) Hebrew and would love the chance to practice and get better. I've always been super curious about getting a manicure or facial, and I'd love to discuss possibly getting tailoring (and would of course pay for materials).show more
