adventures of a non-binary little awesome trans*person in a binary world.
For the cost of a ticket, children in Beijing can test out dozens of possible careers at the I Have a Dream theme park.
But even in this imaginary world, they don’t break the rigid gender stereotypes: the most popular attraction for girls is dressing up as a flight attendant while the boys choose work as customs agents or security guards.
"Some jobs are really inappropriate for women. If they force their way into these jobs, they will waste energy that can be better used elsewhere," says Professor Shu, who teaches at a mining and technological school that’s only open to men.

Gender Neutral Pronouns: They’re Here, Get Used To Them (by Tom Scott)
A great linguistic take on gender-neutral pronouns and a shot across the bow at people who think that the term they isn’t a good third-person alternative.
This is an interesting, and simple explanation of pronouns that I found and enjoyed. Although, I didn’t particularly like the exclusion of other pronouns, that he chooses to list and claim are not being overly integrated into the english language, which I disagree with. How do my fellow queers feel about it?
I feel like my brief study of pronouns history in english is that gender neutral pronouns have been historically used, but ‘they’ has been the longest standing success while others (like ‘thon’) have been left behind by the mainstream. That said, I also believe all pronouns deserve respect, and if a person wants to go by Thon/Xe/Hir/etc. I will respect that and try by absolute best to honour that person’s wishes.
All in all, a pretty good vid I’d say. Anyone else have commentary?
