A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns Reviews
[I received a copy of this book through NetGalley.]
This is a very short book in the shape of a graphic novel/comics, so there’s no excuse not to read it. ;)
While I’m not particularly vocal about it when I write book reviews, and while the name I use is ‘feminine’, I don’t identify as a woman—my sex is female, but my gender is non-binary (more specifically, agender). So, it’s always mildly annoying at best when people keep referring to me as ‘she’. Sometimes they just don’t know, and of course, i ...more
Plenty of people are going to talk about the relevance of this book as it pertains to intersex, non-binary, genderqueer, gender fluid, and trans individuals, so I'm going to take a different approach and argue that this book is a fantastic demonstration of the relevance and vital quality of the medium of comics.
Archie Bongiovanni and Tristan Jimerson do an incredible job of using comics to explain memory, emotion, identity, and the complexities of human interaction in a simple little book, that ...more
This is a comprehending, yet easy (and necessary) to absorb account on the importance and use of pronouns, that manages to be fun and visually engaging, while tackling a serious topic, and offering great guidance for everyone. People tend to take certain things for granted and being correctly gendered is high up on that list. I am a girl who was born a girl so I've had it quite easy contrary to the experinces of so many queergender and non-binary people. However, I remember something that happen ...more
"A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns" is one of those reads that may be complementary for anybody who wants to learn more about how to be a part of today's society. In this book authors try to explain the gender neutral pronouns to the simple-minded folks (like myself) who aim to educate themselves in this field. With very cool illustration and easy to understand language it presents tips and trick for newbies and people who want to improve their knowledge.
The simplicity of the artwo ...more
Everyone needs to read this.
This tiny, 64 page book is not only so important to not being a rude and immoral person, but it's also got cute illustrations & is funny. I do wish it talked more about gender neutral pronouns besides they/them, but this is a really good introduction to the topic.
It's such a great guide for both introducing people to they/them pronouns or revisiting the topic on in a way that makes it fun and just a sweet, perfectly-timed-for-pride-month sort of read.
I received this ARC from Limerence Press, an imprint of Oni Press. I just started an LGBTQ+ club at my library for teens. I have many students that use our teen room on a daily basis who have identified themselves as non-binary or pansexual and prefer to use non-gendered language. It's a foreign concept to me but one that I want to be more informed about and this book is a great place to start.
Written from the perspective of both a cisgender (born male, identifies as male) individual and a non- ...more
edit 18.06.15: I thought more about this book and realised that maybe 5 stars is too high, so I'm changing my review to 4. I still think it's a good start to learn about nonbinary pronouns for someone who doesn't know anything, though, and I think that's kind of the aim of it.
I received a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
(Note: I am a nonbinary person who uses she/her and e/em pronouns.)
This was truly a quick, easy and useful read, just as the title promises. "A Quick ...more
This is a quick little book that is pretty much what it says on the tin. For those of you who have never heard of they/them pronouns, this is a quick and easy way to learn about it. For those of you who know about the use of these pronouns, and have used them the right way, you are free to skip this lesson. But for those of you know who not only don't know, but don't know why they should know, this is a great book to start with.
The book is co-written by a Cis man, and a transgender gender fluid ...more
