I‘m currently listening to an audiobook with a non-binary central character who uses they/them pronouns, so it was timely to spot the tagged book in a library display.
I have far too many library books still checked out, so tonight‘s reading was an attempt to bring down that number by tackling the shortest among them. Tagged book was a favorite, although I enjoyed the #kidlit too. Bats in Trouble had a great environmentalist message, and Sees Behind Trees was super compelling. Kelsey Green, Reading Queen hit a little too close to home, though 😬 The competitive reader in me felt a little attacked 😂
I don‘t think I‘ll learn anything new from this book, though if I do, I‘ll be pleased. But I love Archie‘s comics, so when I saw this at the library I had to pick it up. So far it‘s making me giggle!
This topic came up during our policy committee meeting at the library yesterday. I'm thankful to our Human Resources Manager for lending this book to me from the library's administrative (internal) collection. I'd like to buy my own copy so I can practice and help others learn, too.
I'm Debby. I use she/her pronouns. What pronouns do you use?
What a great little book! It is written by a non-binary person and a cisgender male and they talk about why correct pronouns are important, how to move on from making mistakes sensitively, and role play using different pronouns. I learned about Spivak pronouns too - which I will read more about elsewhere, as this is really they/them. Recommended!
I like to be informed and sensitive to others, and this was a good, quick, and easy guide to they/them pronouns.
A fantastic, short introduction to...well, what the title says. I appreciated the overview and how clear and concise it was. I definitely feel more prepared than I did before. I do wish they‘d included Ze/Hir as well, and/or a list of other pronouns people use other than he or she, though they were mentioned briefly. (Don‘t mind my messy office/storage room!)
This is a simple, light-hearted, wonderful little book that outlines how to use they/them pronouns and why it is so important to respect pronouns. This could be an excellent tool for people who want to be more informed and empathic with non-binary people and would also be great for n.b. folks to give out as a resource when they are tired of endlessly explaining themselves to people. Great resource! #nonbinarybooks #queerbooks
1. Ironically it‘s a screenshot from my walk of shame yesterday to pay this monster library fine. I guess my due dates just escaped me, oops 🤦🏻♀️
2. Today is the first International Pronouns Day, so this little (tagged) book is perfect!
3. The annual Half Price Books clearance event they do here starts on Friday. Also I am doing #readathon and #8inBoo which starts Friday too!
5. 🎶It‘s a jungle out there... #HumpDayPost
5 🌟! This is part of my recent #netgalley and #library #tbrpile! As someone who has started using they/them pronouns recently, I found this a very helpful read as I'm so used to gendered terms but trying to change. I also love the art, very simple and informative! #graphicnovel #nonfiction #genderstudies
This book is simply really great, on the practice of they/them pronouns in respects to Trans and Non-Binary people; in a more gender neutral approach to first impressions. -- Tristan makes a good point about restaurants teaching servers to use Sir / Ma'am more often. I do work in the kitchen staff jobs, while often called Sir as a common way, and don't mind. 😏 I probably could try relearning in fair respects, just never using Sir / Ma'am at all.
Quick review because I was sent an ARC. Full disclosure: I'm non-binary, and I am sick to death of gender essentialism and people saying women are this and men are something else, blahblahblah. I don't believe gender is inherent or necessary, thus my pronouns are they/them/their and I'm glad there are now books like this out there to act as an idiot's guide to getting it right. I didn't 100% agree with everything in it, but it could come in handy.
Relevant, helpful, important and /funny/, this nifty guide to pronouns is exactly what is says on the tin: quick and easy. It's 64 pages and obviously not a complete resource, but they manage to squeeze a lot of information in and it's a good place to start on the road to learning and understanding gender neutrality. A+ for humour in education!
This comic guide with a goofy, gently sarcastic sense of humor is all about gender neutral pronouns and why they matter. It encourages people to make their everyday language more inclusive by dropping words like ma'am, sir, etc. and not assuming gender. This guide gets into the nuances that come with existing in this world as a nonbinary person. Even if you consider yourself a well-informed ally, you'll learn from this fun, engaging book. #lgbtqia
