Earlier this month we published “My Body is Me!”, a book we are very proud of that promotes body positivity and seeks to encourage children to question sex stereotyping.
We believe this is an exceptional and beautifully written and illustrated resource.
As a consequence, Rachel Rooney, the award winning poet and author, has been subject to an unacceptable targeted campaign. Since the book was released the harassment on Twitter has been unrelenting.
We ask those adults on social media to consider both their motivation and the consequences of their misplaced targeted campaign of harassment; their impact not only on Rachel, but in contributing to making social media an increasingly hostile and unsafe place for women.
That a well-loved and exceptionally talented children’s poet is targeted in this way for writing such a joyful and positive book for children should give everyone pause for thought.
We are incredibly proud of “My Body is Me!”. To judge for yourself, you can order a copy here: https://www.transgendertrend.com/product/my-body-is-me/
