I hear something very similar from parents and other loved ones of transgender and nonbinary people who come into my office, “I can’t use they/them pronouns, it isn’t how I was taught and I can’t wrap my mind around it.”
Have you ever said or thought anything similar?
If so, it’s okay, you aren’t the first or last person to do so.
I’m here to say with the utmost confidence that even though it can be difficult, you already use the singular they/them language.
Have you seen this adorable new short film called, "In a Heartbeat,", yet? If you haven't take a look below. Once I saw it I knew I had to post it on my blog.
Media representation is few and far between for the LGBTQA+ community that when something, especially a cartoon, is released it is important that it is seen.
Imagine growing up and not seeing yourself reflected in movies, TV shows, books, and music. Imagine growing up an only seeing yourself. Lack of diversity in media can lead to feelings of isolation and being "less than." On the flip side only seeing yourself reflected can lead to feelings of superiority and privilege.
