There are lots of feminist cross stitch samplers out there, but I haven’t been able to find any about trans girls. :( It’s a bit of a mess because I was using this project to test a few new techniques and my machine needle buckled and snapped, but I’d love to make more of these in the future that look better. <3
You know what sucks? being so used to misgendering that you regard someone simply acknowledging your pronouns as an act of kindness.

PSA: the umbrella term for people outside the gender binary is non-binary. genderfluid, bigender, agender, genderqueer, androgyne, neutrois, etc. are all under that umbrella and may or may not apply to any particular non-binary individual.
someone who is bigender or genderfluid etc. does not necessarily experience a binary gender at all. a bigender person could some days feel agender and some days androgynous
if a person does experience a binary gender, it doesn’t mean they aren’t non-binary. even if a non-binary person’s preferred pronouns include those associated with their assigned sex at birth, it is not acceptable to dismiss their identity.
two non-binary people can have two very experiences of the same identity. two neutrois people may describe their gender in very different ways, just like two women may describe their gender in very different ways.
non-binary people’s gender presentation can be affected by a lot of different factors, including what makes them feel comfortable physically or emotionally, but also what they can afford, and what is considered acceptable in their school or place of work. presenting “androgynously” is not possible or even desirable for everyone.
please be respectful of everyone’s gender expression. if you don’t understand it, try doing research on your own before asking questions that might seem threatening, invasive, or demanding.

somebody doesn’t have to look completely androgynous in order to identify as genderqueer or non-binary. somebody doesn’t have to look masculine or butch in order to identify as male. somebody doesn’t have to look feminine at all in order to identify as female. you can wear a dress and makeup everyday and still ID as male. gender expression is not the same as gender identity

naomie harris as warshe was beautiful the way a forest fire was beautiful: something to be admired from a distance, not up close.
cillian murphy as pollutionhe was somewhere in his twenties at a casual glance, and a casual glance was all anyone ever gave him. he was almost entirely unmemorable.

A pair of smokin’ dames on their motorbikes in Britain, 1930s. Photographs of women motorcyclists from this time period always fascinate me; society norms changing quickly through the early 1900s allowed women to exercise and enjoy some new freedoms. Can you imagine wearing a corset on a motorcycle?
Original photo source unknown, though I suspect it’s from historial archives.
