Love you my wonderful ace and aro bbs <3

implying pansexuality is the only sexuality that includes trans ppl is transphobic. implying pansexuality is the only sexuality that cares abt a persons personality rather than genitals is homophobic. implying pansexuality is an elevated/better version of bisexuality is biphobic. its fine to identify as pan but these mindsets specifically are still problematic and that needs to be recognized by the community.

And after all these weeks waiting, planning and hoping, I’m more than happy to introduce… the Pride Flag collection! 

Show your pride boldly with a hoodie that definitely won’t stay in the closet! 😉

For those who just can’t wait anymore, here is where you can buy them: https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/Simakaihoodies?section_id=23881519

Here is a little more story for people interested! Yes, all my models are what they’re showing. It was important for me to represent not only the flag, but the varied people who want to show their pride. 🙂 They’re also friends from various groups, and one is my cousin! I don’t often have an occasion to include my family in these projects, so I’m glad I could this time! Also I want to give a big, special thanks to Bahamut Night Photography for snapping us so perfectly!

For every hoodie sold, I will give 2$ to Fondation Émergence! They’re the founders of the International Day against homophobia and transphobia (May 17th) and are very active locally. I may also give more to Amnesty International or All Out when they need to answer some urgent situation around the world. I want these hoodies to do some good, and not just be a cool piece of clothing.

I will try to make more flags to add to this collection ASAP! So far on the list is Aromantic, Poly-sexual and Demi-ace. Don’t hesitate to ask me for a new flag, if I get asked a few times I will add it to the shop, and if it’s very rare/unique, I can make it as a custom order. 😉

To anyone confused about the “bazillion genders” nonbinary people talk about, here’s an explanation: They are not for you.

Listen, I honestly understand this confusion. I identified as cis until fairly recently, and for a long time I didn’t get  why people called themselves these genders that seemed pretty wild. The problem is that I think people misunderstand the intent of these labels. People assume that these are terms we’re expecting you to memorize and if you ever call us the wrong one we’ll riot. But that’s not at all the point.

The labels we use to describe our gender identities are really just that–labels. They’re a way for us to identify our perception of our gender both to ourselves and to others like us. We use them because they make us feel validated because people are expected to have a word for their gender, and we use them so we can identify others like ourselves. 

The point is, if you aren’t cis, you don’t have to understand these genders. Gender is really complicated, and if you’ve only ever identified as the gender assigned to you, it’s hard to get what it’s like to have a nonbinary gender.  The genders that people think sound “crazy,” like ones that revolve around some feeling or are influenced by a wide concept, are still totally legitimate, because they’re just words for how we feel. If someone feels like they’re gender is like the stars, that’s entirely their business.

When I say these labels aren’t for you, I don’t mean that you should ignore them. I mean that they all fall under the umbrella term of nonbinary, and all you really need to know about a person’s gender is their pronouns. If someone wants to tell you more about their gender, that’s up to them. But otherwise, leave worrying about gender to us enbies.
