A proposed new (non-binary inclusive) trans* symbol.
Not gonna lie, I got a little giddy when I saw it.
I really like it. Aw man.
OH MAN HOW COOL IS THIS
Every time I see this post on my dash, I am just blown away with the levels of meaning it has. Because the asterisk has often been used as an inclusive signifier for the suffix “trans,” and the symbol is obviously referencing that.
But if you look closely, the asterisk attached to the circle contains both the female and male (Venus and Mars) symbols.
And if you know much about the meanings of astrology symbols, you could even argue that there’s a third glyph in there. Because male/Mars is drive (arrow) over spirit (circle), and female/Venus is spirit (circle) over matter (cross). And when you’ve used those, you’re left with what could be interpreted as mind (crescent) over spirit (circle). And I really think it would be quite useful for anyone who doesn’t fit in the gender binary.
So yes. All the awards to the creator!
That is beyond cool!
This is a fantastic and excellent bit of design. Good on the creators.
the thing that a lot of the people who say “yeah they’re wrong, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion” do not really understand is that there are different levels of wrongness of opinion.
like, tier one of “wrong opinion” would be someone saying “calvin and hobbes is a bad comic.” i disagree with you, and i have reasons for disagreeing, but ultimately, neither of us has proof or even any objective evidence that our opinion is the right one. i still think you are wrong, but you are not wrong in any kind of serious or real way.
tier two would be “chicago economics works.” you are wrong, but you are wrong because you do not have the right information. once given the right information, you will probably change your wrong opinion into a right one. if you are a layperson when it comes to economics, it is unlikely that you will not trust a more knowledgeable person who disagrees with you simply because they disagree with you.
tier three is where we get to the “no you are not entitled to your opinion” stuff, like “women are inherently incapable of understanding math because their brains are different.” you are wrong, and there is plenty of evidence that you are wrong. however, you are unlikely to heed that evidence, because everything suggests that you hold your wrong opinion because you are sexist and cissexist. you do not want to let it go because letting go of that wrong opinion will challenge your chauvinism. you do not hold that wrong opinion simply because of faulty information but because you are a piece of shit.
Eight Things I Don’t Need To Hear From Straight People (by Brian Murphy)
I would add, “But you are special and unique!” Uhhh… thanks for minimizing my pain and struggle, my identity and feelings into being “special.” Or, even worse, blowing off all of the oppression, bullying and marginalization I experience.
Or, for my queer relationship, “Which one of you is the man, and which is the woman?” NEITHER. WE ARE BOTH WOMEN. JESUS.
What Persecution ISN’T.
In case it has not yet been made abundantly clear, there is real, verifiable, horrible persecution happening around the world - to Christians and Atheists alike. The following, however, does not make the list. It does not fall under the heading of persecution, and if you’re feeling victimized because of it, the most that I can suggest is to develop a slightly thicker skin.
asking for proof
fighting for equal rights
standing up for what you do (or don’t) believe in
offering a different opinion
stating that you disagree
pointing out fallacies
pointing out errors or mistakes
asking for verification
wanting non-subjective evidence
collecting fellow non-believers together for community support
standing up for the separation of church and state
asking religious institutions to pay taxes if they’re going to interfere with politics
asking for equal treatment under the law
arresting parents who used prayer instead of seeking medical attention for a dying child
offering a different possiblity
agreeing with science
Until the following are occurring on a regular basis, Christians do not get to play the victim card, just because someone disagrees with them.
being thrown in jail - just for your beliefs
being forced to confess to something that you haven’t done, or being forced to pay lip service to another deity
being publicly humiliated (and not just because you lost an argument in epic fashion)
being executed solely for your religious beliefs (or lack thereof)
being thrown into the arena to be eaten alive by wild beasts
being crucified or burned alive
having your property seized by the state and sold because you were found guilty of heresy
having your rights stripped away and being treated as second-class citizens
None of these are happening to Christians in America, but they are happening to Christians elsewhere and to claim that you are being persecuted JUST because someone disagrees with you is a slap in the face to people whose lives are in danger for believing in the same god you believe in - or believing in no god at all.

GET THE BOOK OF WIVES. omg. we.could like.. send Mark a book of wives. With just our faces in it. I HAVE JUST DISCOVERED THE CREEPIEST GIFT EVER.
It’s like this…
You’re fourteen and you’re reading Larry Niven’s “The Protector” because it’s your father’s favorite book and you like your father and you think he has good taste and the creature on the cover of the book looks interesting and you want to know what it’s about. And in it the female character does something better than the male character - because she’s been doing it her whole life and he’s only just learned - and he gets mad that she’s better at it than him. And you don’t understand why he would be mad about that, because, logically, she’d be better at it than him. She’s done it more. And he’s got a picture of a woman painted on the inside of his spacesuit, like a pinup girl, and it bothers you.
But you’re fourteen and you don’t know how to put this into words.
And then you’re fifteen and you’re reading “Orphans of the Sky” because it’s by a famous sci-fi author and it’s about a lost generation ship and how cool is that?!? but the women on the ship aren’t given a name until they’re married and you spend more time wondering what people call those women up until their marriage than you do focusing on the rest of the story. Even though this tidbit of information has nothing to do with the plot line of the story and is only brought up once in passing.
But it’s a random thing to get worked up about in an otherwise all right book.
Then you’re sixteen and you read “Dune” because your brother gave it to you for Christmas and it’s one of those books you have to read to earn your geek card. You spend an entire afternoon arguing over who is the main character - Paul or Jessica. And the more you contend Jessica, the more he says Paul, and you can’t make him see how the real hero is her. And you love Chani cause she’s tough and good with a knife, but at the end of the day, her killing Paul’s challengers is just a way to degrade them because those weenies lost to a girl.
Then you’re seventeen and you don’t want to read “Stranger in a Strange Land” after the first seventy pages because something about it just leaves a bad taste in your mouth. All of this talk of water-brothers. You can’t even pin it down.
And then you’re eighteen and you’ve given up on classic sci-fi, but that doesn’t stop your brother or your father from trying to get you to read more.
Even when you bring them the books and bring them the passages and show them how the authors didn’t treat women like people.
Your brother says, “Well, that was because of the time it was written in.”
You get all worked up because these men couldn’t imagine a world in which women were equal, in which women were empowered and intelligent and literate and capable.
You tell him - this, this is science fiction. This is all about imagining the world that could be and they couldn’t stand back long enough and dare to imagine how, not only technology would grow in time, but society would grow.
But he blows you off because he can’t understand how it feels to be fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen and desperately wanting to like the books your father likes, because your father has good taste, and being unable to, because most of those books tell you that you’re not a full person in ways that are too subtle to put into words. It’s all cognitive dissonance: a little like a song played a bit out of tempo - enough that you recognize it’s off, but not enough to pin down what exactly is wrong.
And then one day you’re twenty-two and studying sociology and some kind teacher finally gives you the words to explain all those little feelings that built and penned around inside of you for years.
It’s like the world clicking into place.
And that’s something your brother never had to struggle with.
