"I am Sarah: daughter, sister, aunt, future wife and mother.
Gender expression does NOT = Gender identity. Unsure of someone's gender? ASK do you prefer she/he/they*? *they IS a pronoun."
I had these shirts made by a friends family member. .
I've accepted that 99% of strangers will assume i'm a man on a day to day basis, but that most of them mean no harm. .
I realized while editing these photos that the shirts are mostly for strangers I see out in public, but they're beneficial for everyone I know.
I say this because there's plenty of this people in this world who have opinions of men who choose to dress in stereotypical "feminine clothes" and women in streotypical "masculine clothes". To be 100% real with people...those stereotypes are bull shit. Choosing to wear what makes you comfortable should not be a problem. It also should not be anyone else's business! I wouldn't go up to anyone and say you should change from a dress to a suit or basketball shorts and wear them all day or vise versa. You wear those things because they make you comfortable, so dont judge another human cause they are strong enough to wear what they're comfortable in. The same goes with hair styles.
I'd rather wear a bright ass shirt 3 days a week; with an important message(that could easily cause assholes to publicly be assholes) than to pass a straight white cis-genderrd dude 24/7.
So...if you're reading this and you know im sarah, a girl, and how to ask people about their pronouns or don't share this with people who you think could benefit from learning this message. The truth is what i'm doing doesn't hurt you! .
