    3.5★ “He/She went to the store. = They went to the store.It belongs to him/her. = It belongs to them.He said so himself. = They said so themself/themselves.She said so herself. = They said so themself/themselves.”This handy little graphic production can help us with language. At the moment it's a 5-star idea whose time has certainly come, but it's maybe a 3-star execution, so I'm splitting the difference. Genderqueer, genderfluid, non-binar...

    I got an ARC copy of this book.Gender is my thing. Sexuality is my thing too. They both hold a very dear place in my heart. As soon as I saw the name of this book I pounced. There was no way I was passing up on this book. The cover was cutesy and it was something I might want to take lessons from for the class I teach. The book talks about pronouns. There is some technical talk, which one of the characters is really bored through. Then they star...

    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 and Easy Guide" is a basic introduction to nonbinary people and gender-neutral pronouns (specifically they/them pronouns, although the same rules and examples can be applied to any gender-neutral pronouns).The book is written ...

    This was a much needed, amazingly illustrated, perfect book on the use of they/them pronouns. Being a trans person myself, this made me feel good that my feelings and thoughts are similar to others and it just makes me feel so much more valid! This is definitely something I will find myself throwing at people who seriously need it, plus giving to friends and family!Thank you to the authors for making this, it's worth getting and reading!

    *I received this book as an eARC from Oni Press and Limerence Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*I absolutely love that this is a comic! It's a comic that is made to educate and inform people on gender neutral pronouns, specifically they/them. The format is conversational with a few nice diagrams. This comic covers so many great topics including pronouns in general, misgendering, and gender neutral pronouns. It's told in a fun, ...

    This was a great little intro guide to using they/them pronouns! It’s targeted toward both people who use they/them pronouns as well as their friends/family/coworkers/acquaintances/etc.

    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...

    Thanks to Netgalley for providing a free advanced copy of this book!This was a short and witty comic guide that's a great place to start for anyone who doesn't know much about non binary gender identities. It explains everything very simply and with a light sense of humour. But it's also a good read for anyone who identifies outside of the binary, who is questioning, or who just wants to learn more and help build a more inclusive and safer world....

    This is a quick little book that is pretty much what it says on the tin. For those of you who have never heard of they/them pronouns, this is a quick and easy way to learn about it. For those of you who know about the use of these pronouns, and have used them the right way, you are free to skip this lesson. But for those of you know who not only don't know, but don't know why they should know, this is a great book to start with.The book is co-wri...

    [I received a copy of this book through NetGalley.]This is a very short book in the shape of a graphic novel/comics, so there’s no excuse not to read it. ;)While I’m not particularly vocal about it when I write book reviews, and while the name I use is ‘feminine’, I don’t identify as a woman—my sex is female, but my gender is non-binary (more specifically, agender). So, it’s always mildly annoying at best when people keep referring ...

    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 ma...

    4.5 starsEveryone needs to read this. This tiny, 64 page book is not only so important to not being a rude and immoral person, but it's also got cute illustrations & is funny. I do wish it talked more about gender neutral pronouns besides they/them, but this is a really good introduction to the topic. Full review to come!Thank you so much to Oni Press for sending me an advance reader's copy in exchange for an honest review!

    "A Quick & Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns" is one of those reads that may be complementary for anybody who wants to learn more about how to be a part of today's society. In this book authors try to explain the gender neutral pronouns to the simple-minded folks (like myself) who aim to educate themselves in this field. With very cool illustration and easy to understand language it presents tips and trick for newbies and people who want to improv...

    This comic guide with a goofy, gently sarcastic sense of humor is all about gender neutral pronouns - how being misgendered feels, why pronouns matter, grammar, and examples of how to use these pronouns in real life.I was so glad the authors encouraged people to try to make their everyday language more inclusive by dropping words like ma'am, sir, guys, ladies, etc. and defaulting to "person" instead of assuming "man" or "woman" when speaking abou...

    This is a comprehending, yet easy (and necessary) to absorb account on the importance and use of pronouns, that manages to be fun and visually engaging, while tackling a serious topic, and offering great guidance for everyone. People tend to take certain things for granted and being correctly gendered is high up on that list. I am a girl who was born a girl so I've had it quite easy contrary to the experinces of so many queergender and non-binary...

    This was a quick read that helps introduce individuals to the idea of pronouns other than she/her and he/him along with how to use them properly.A lot of the information that is in here is what I have stumbled upon in my research, but that didn't take awhile from this. It is always helpful to reread about how to use gender-neutral pronouns and gender-neutral terms. Living in a more conservative part of the country, this is something that I would ...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalleyThis 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 d...

    I received a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I loved this book, English isn't my first language so it's not easy for me to use pronouns in general (and times and words) but I really enjoy the practical and funny way that is all explain and that it has useful data of how to come out, what it's feels to be misgendered and the kind of things that no-binary, gender queer, gender fluid persons has to deal with and I let al...

    The title says pretty much everything you need to know about what you'll learn from this book. So if you still don't know what to do with them/they pronouns, how they work and why you should use them, or if you're nb or already an ally and want to support nb people - this is the right comic book to read.Obviously, it's not super comprehensive. It doesn't answer of all the questions the particularly clueless readers might have, it doesn't include ...

    I have been trying to explore books that talk about gender-neutrality and gender-fluidity in a very elementary, rudimentary manner- so this one comes as a great recommendation for that.As a cisgender, I have wondered myself how awkward and uncomfortable conversations about one's gender identity could be, and how tricky it is to use words, and to try and use them in the right manner- I have imagined the best of intentions go to waste because of th...

    This is such a short but important book. I think everybody should read it, it explains simply what we need to know about gender-neutral pronouns and how to use them. The art was simple, just what it needed to tell us everything without doing too much and it was really enjoyable.

    I wish I had a copy to give out to everyone who misgenders my friends. This is short, sweet, and to the point.Would make a great gift for parents and relatives of non-binary humans.

    Everyone needs to read this. Whether you know someone who uses gender neutral pronouns or not, you should pick this up and get educated. This book is so informative and is a very quick read as well so you shouldn't hesitate picking it up

    I received a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.( 1 ) 13/5/18 - 13/5/18Overall, this is a quick and easy read that informs the reader of the most basic of things concerning genderqueer and non-binary pronouns with a few vague experiences to stress the points made pertaining to they/them pronouns.However, there is a lot of room for improvement. For a start, as a genderqueer/non-binary person myself, I felt like this was t...

    I have to admit that as much as I support the LGBT+ community, when it comes to questions about gender, I'm poorly educated. Hence why I'm so glad to have come accross this well-named "quick and easy guide".For starters, you probably guessed: I'm not non binary. I have to rely on guides like this one to understand something I'm not going through and make up for the experience I'll never have. So I'm very grateful this guide is out there. It's not...

    Gender identity and gender neutral pronouns are becoming increasing important in today's world. (Not that they weren't important before!) Everyone can benefit from reading this very important book. This timely comic guide is beautifully handled with humor and extreme clarity. I especially appreciated the careful handling of the subject and the attention to the fact that 'switching' pronoun use in our vocabulary can be challenging and require a re...

    This was a good, basic starter How-To guide on gender neutral pronouns. It does, as it says in the title, though, focus primarily on They/Them pronouns. I liked how they said there were much more in depth resources regarding this, and clearly stating that was not the ballpark they were aiming for in this guide. There are two narrators in this graphic novel, one of them cis (he/him) and the other non-binary (they/them). I also thought the two of t...
