They | 他们

“Exploring gender identity for me means examining and deconstructing the ways in which all things are assigned gender—not just my own body, traits, and presentation, but how all people, behaviors, objects, emotions, words, and beyond are processed by society and by individuals through a binary lens. It also fascinates me to think about how everyone, cis and trans alike, feels compelled to perform gender, to have goals and ambitions for their presentation. Accepting they/them is embracing my own ambitions while rejecting the binary lens as a toxic limitation on accepting the multiplicity and possibility of being.”

“对我来说,探索性别认同意味着审视和解构所有事物被赋予性别的方式——不仅仅是我自己的身体、特征和表现,而是所有人、行为、物体、情感、言语以及其他事物是如何通过二元透镜被社会和个人处理的。”让我着迷的是,每个人,无论是男是女,都必须表现出自己的性别,都必须为自己的表现设定目标和抱负。接受他们就是拥抱我自己的野心,同时拒绝二元视角,因为它是对接受存在的多样性和可能性的有害限制。”
