In Sweden, a new book has been launched on trans issues which is aimed at children. “Horse and Master” is a story of a horse who wants to become a dog, and his owner, who is biologically male but feels like a woman. “It’s a book about horse and its owner, who might actually be a dog and a woman, about a man who may identify himself as a woman and a horse that identifies itself as a dog and would therefore like to do all the doggy stuff like gnawing bones, chasing cats and fetching,” the publishing house says in a book description. The book aims to break down the stigma surrounding transgender people making people aware of it from the youngest age. The educational booklet was written by Susanne Pelger, a PhD of genetics and a teacher of biology and mathematics at Lund University, who created the book out of a want for children to grow up free, knowing that it depends on them whom to be and how to build their life.
