This is a really cute, fun book that explains and explores the various uses of They/Them and gender neutral pronouns. It's told in comic form, and tells you from the outset that it's made for all ages, for all abilities, and to be an informative a ...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.
I received a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
(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
A fun, easy introduction to they/them pronouns with some pretty awesome graphics to boot.
I'm no novice when it comes to trans issues, but I'll admit that I know much less about people who identify as genderqueer.
I knew a person who identified as genderqueer when I was in college, but has since adapted she/her pronouns, so my first-hand knowledge of someone who is genderfluid or genderqueer is extremely limited. However, I'm always up to learn and grow as a person in this crazy world we live in, ...more
Thanks to Netgalley for providing a free copy of this book.
Brief, concise and relevant. This book is so important, especially for those who are just finding out about gender-neutral pronouns. The authors tried to keep it simple and quick to read, and they succeeded. I loved the dynamics between the two narrators. It is funny and light-hearted but doesn't neglect the weight nor the significance of the topic at any time. Everyone should read this.
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

This is very simple beginner's guide to they/them pronouns. I've already known pretty much all of those information but the thing is it took me a lot of TIME to learn that and while I do not think that time was wasted I wish I had a guide like this one back when I first learned that there are more than two genders. Coming from a conservative family, those concepts were completely new to me and I didn't know where to start - this book is a good st ...more
I received this ARC from Limerence Press, an imprint of Oni Press. I just started an LGBTQ+ club at my library for teens. I have many students that use our teen room on a daily basis who have identified themselves as non-binary or pansexual and prefer to use non-gendered language. It's a foreign concept to me but one that I want to be more informed about and this book is a great place to start.
Written from the perspective of both a cisgender (born male, identifies as male) individual and a non- ...more
