Are You Having Trouble With My Gender?

  • Are You Having Trouble with My Gender?
     
    This book was written by Alex Barnawell and Florian Palucci, who both use singular they/them pronouns.  
     
    As nonbinary (we don’t identify as male or female) transgender (we don’t identify with the gender we were assigned at birth) individuals, we find ourselves battling gender conventions in language on a daily basis.  Language is one of a myriad of arenas in which trans people have to fight for recognition and respect of our identities. This book was born out of many, many misgenderings. It was created with the intention of being a primer on gender neutral pronouns and why care must be taken when using gendered language.
