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.

Who can I pay to never see this crap again?

I mean I get the point, but I just always gotta wonder… Why does it seem like the crux of non-binary trans action all seem to be like, vocabulary and graphics about vocabulary? I mean, of course it makes sense when most of the time its FAAB trans ppl in dyke and feminist communities and such doing it. Promoting inclusive language is way easier and beneficial than doing shit to stop the violence and helping the ppl experiencing it.
Still cant find the words for why these graphics hit me weird, but this shits weird. If 50,000 queers and feminists are putting this on blast at once, somethings gotta be up. Maybe that’s it right there. I don’t think I’ve ever seen 5 digits of note on a post made by/for trans women. Idk.

^^^ I have no place in this convo but queeratzlan’s critique hit me in the gut.
