GENDER.

GENDER
it isn’t black & white
no matter how much you want it to be

…i made this for several reasons.

it bothers me when i see someone’s gender identity being ignored, erased or invalidated for any reason*.

it bothers me when i see people bitching about there being “too many labels” just because they themselves lack the need for them.

it bothers me when i see people both within and outside of the LGBTQIA community (esp. within the genderqueer and non-binary communities) trying so hard to define this and that that they begin to paint things black & white, oversimplifying things to the point of erasing the shades of gray that so many people actually find comfort in.

it bothers me when someone feels that they have the right to tell someone else that they aren’t the gender that they identify as because they don’t want to transition medically, they don’t present themselves or act a certain way, they don’t experience “enough” dysphoria or whatever other “not ___ enough” crap they can come up with.

it bothers me…. well, a lot of things bother me, really, and i just wanted a simple graphic to convey that fact.

*cultural appropriation being the only exception.
