Archie, a snarky genderqueer artist, is tired of people not understanding gender neutral pronouns. Tristan, a cisgender dude, is looking for an easy way to introduce gender neutral pronouns to his increasingly diverse workplace. The longtime best friends team up in this short and fun comic guide that explains what pronouns are, why they matter, and how to use them. They also include what to do if you make a mistake, and some tips-and-tricks for those who identify outside of the binary to keep themselves safe in this binary-centric world. A quick and easy resource for people who use they/them pronouns, and people who want to learn more!
I recieved this book via Netgalley from Oni Press & Limerence Press in exchange for an honest review.
How freaking cute was that?! Such a short, yet crucially informative little comic book.
A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns illustrates the proper way to treat and address genderqueer, genderfluid, non-binary, and other gender non-conforming individuals. Archie, who is genderqueer, is so sassy and snarky, but also very vulnerable when it comes to their gender-identity. Along with their friend, Tristan (cis), they made this comic to help others either understand how to talk to gender non-conforming people, or help allies support their genderqueer friends.
Throughout the book, Archie is very honest about their feelings when someone misgenders them and how differently people feel when they’re also misgendered. Tristan is along to help Archie explain for those who are utterly and completely clueless about pronouns (or haven’t used Twitter since 2011).
This is definitely a must-read for those interested in how to be a better ally and maybe even a gift for someone you think might need a little help in the area of being a decent human being. What a great book to start off Pride Month with ❤

**Also, to the jerk on Goodreads who thought it was cool to ask how this book had more than one page and that they/them isn’t a singular pronoun: eff off, no one likes you anyway and I reported your question for being hateful. Sorry you had to see that, everyone else 😉
