Trans* Ally Workbook: Getting Pronouns Right & What It Teaches Us About Gender

"Do you want to be a good ally to the trans* community (or to a particular trans* person in your life), but find yourself struggling to use the right pronouns? It’s the most basic way to demonstrate respect for trans* people, yet so many well-meaning allies struggle to get it right.

Trans* Ally Workbook: Getting Pronouns Right and What it Teaches Us About Gender is an accessible, nuanced, and thorough guide that will help you transform your good intentions into respectful actions. It includes fun and meaningful exercises to retrain your brain so that you can consistently and easily call people the pronouns they want to be called. Along the way, you’ll gain valuable insight into how you think about gender.”

I got to do the design for this booklet! It’s written by Davey Shlasko, and has illustrations by Kai Hofius. Get a copy in print or pdf form here:

Lewis’s law is an observation she made in 2012 that states “the comments on any article about feminism justify feminism.” Lewis has written frequently about misogynist hate directed at women online.[8]

Can we just repeat that a few more times, 

“The comments on any article about feminism justify feminism.”
