A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns Reviews
*I received this book as an eARC from Oni Press and Limerence Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*
I absolutely love that this is a comic! It's a comic that is made to educate and inform people on gender neutral pronouns, specifically they/them. The format is conversational with a few nice diagrams. This comic covers so many great topics including pronouns in general, misgendering, and gender neutral pronouns. It's told in a fun, and sometimes sarcastic way. The emphasis is on bu ...more
"Practicing gender-neutral pronouns is both an exercise in language and a chance to grow as a more empathetic and respectful communicator."
Honestly, I just flipped through this because I liked the cover art and I was fairly surprised that this strives to educate readers, not just about pronouns but also the struggles of misgendered folks in everyday life. This was an easy read for me and I liked how light the tone the author had set for educating us, readers. I'm grateful for the authors of ...more
“He/She went to the store. = They went to the store.
It belongs to him/her. = It belongs to them.
He said so himself. = They said so themself/themselves.
She said so herself. = They said so themself/themselves.”
This handy little graphic production can help us with language. At the moment it's a 5-star idea whose time has certainly come, but it's maybe a 3-star execution, so I'm splitting the difference.
Genderqueer, genderfluid, non-binary, whatever label is used it means that an individual do ...more
As somebody who uses they pronouns from time to time, this guide is everything the name implies, with it's easy-to-read but informing mixed in with some comedy that doesn't take you out of message of the guide.
While it's made for people who don't understand the pronouns, more so than people who use pronouns such as these, there is still some great tips for people who need help with people misunderstanding and coming out.
The artwork feels like if Noelle Stevenson helped Scott McCloud on his non-f ...more
An excellent introduction to gender neutral pronouns--how to use them, how to correct a mistake in using the wrong ones, and how to adapt your language to be more inclusive. By changing a few simple words to a few other simple words, you can not only make your language more inclusive, but also make sure you don't offend anyone by misgendering them. Jimerson introduced neutral language into his business and much of the advice could definitely be used in a training session at a business or any oth ...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.

(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
I got an ARC copy of this book.
Gender is my thing. Sexuality is my thing too. They both hold a very dear place in my heart. As soon as I saw the name of this book I pounced. There was no way I was passing up on this book. The cover was cutesy and it was something I might want to take lessons from for the class I teach.
The book talks about pronouns. There is some technical talk, which one of the characters is really bored through. Then they start to break it down into real people talk. There is ...more
This was such a fun little graphic novel that every reader should take a look at! Seriously, I read through the book in a solid 20 minutes and think it would be beneficial to give to friends and families and strangers. It’s educational, short, sweet, and to the point. Plus, the drawings are absolutely adorable and keep the content stimulating!
I also appreciated the authors’ mentioning why they wanted to add the perspective of a cisgendered man (the other author is a non-binary artist) to a guide ...more
