Women and design APRIL 13, 2018 / ELAINEXF / EDIT With the influence from the patriarchal society, women were devalued and their voices could not be heard. As well as in the design world, women have been involved in it in a variety of ways – as practitioner, theorists, consumers, historians, and as objects of representation. However, […]
I met a woman recently who was close to my age (61) and was just coming out as Bi. Now when I say coming out I mean just barely cracking that closet door. Our conversation was a real eye-opener for me as she was a grown woman who had been hiding for her entire life. […]
I haven’t been feeling well but I managed to make and list a few Pride Wands. Here they are! All of these wands (and more) are in my zibbet shop.
Talia by King Princess What Is Gender Expression? Gender expression is a huge umbrella term that refers to your personal character traits in relation to your gender identity. It can include things like your personal habits, sense of style, preferences, even down to the way you speak and move about. The APA defines gender expression […]

The term “trans” has been used as shorthand for “transgender.” Both have been used as umbrella terms, so someone who uses the non-binary or enby might also use the term “trans” or “transgender” to describe themselves. Wait, so is “trans” the same as “transgender” or are they different? The GLAAD Media Reference Guide defines “transgender” as: An […]
Is marriage too heteronormative?
As I explored the question “How does being transgender effect a person’s happiness?” I ran into many problems. The first and most prominent being, how can you quantify or measure happiness? For the purpose of answering the question, I determined a person’s happiness in two ways: their statistical mental health and personal statements. I also […]
Non-binary, or genderqueer, is a term used to describe individuals whose gender identities are not exclusively feminine or masculine. Individuals who identify as non-binary choose to do so because they do not have an inherently female or male sense of identity. Genderqueer individuals can express a blend of masculinity and femininity in varying degrees, or […]
Godfrey Elfwick (aka Titania McGrath) apparently now has a regular column in The Spectator USA, and, frankly, I’m surprised that even a semi-conservative magazine would present Elfwick’s musings without saying that they’re satirical. After all, Elfwick, McGrath and their/hir/zir schticks are so close to the fulminations of exteme Control-Leftism that they sometimes gets mistaken for […]
Get ready to feel joyful.
