Recommendation: Attention: People With Body Parts


Lexie Bean recommends…

Line drawings in many colors of many body types.

Attention: People With Body Parts
A book and letter campaign

“Attention: People With Body Parts” commenced as a drive to collect letters from folks who have written to one of their body parts. Our bodies are filled with histories and identities, which change the way people look at each other and look in the mirror. Together, we self-construct and self-destruct our bodies. This project is about accessibility of control, celebration, and space for connection to and from body parts. This project is about establishing safe spaces for anyone who has been told or forced to believe safety is not something he/she/ze/they can find within the home, the body.

Recommendation: On Being Different


Tarvok recommends…

*On Being Different*. -Tarvok-. Summary: Mr. Spock's advice on being a part of two worlds, yet accepted by neither one. Vaguely based from advice written by Mr. Leonard Nimoy a long time ago. I live my life by this, and I thought maybe that I would share.

On Being Different
A short narration, a fanfiction.

I think this advice might be able to help people. It’s about being in-between two worlds, and maybe what you can do to be happy there, rather than always trying to be one thing or the other because other people wish you’d just “pick a side.”

It’s helped me immensely, so I thought I’d Pay It Forward.

Recommendation: X: A Fabulous Child’s Story


A recommends…
Baby X

Baby X is a story of a child raised as an experiment. X is raised just named X, and X’s physical sex is kept a very tight secret. Nobody other than the parents know, and they are sworn to exclusive secrecy, telling everybody who asks that X is neither a boy or a girl: just an X. The story follows Baby X as it grows up without any pressure towards either male or female, encouraged strongly in both areas. X thrives in school, but soon complications arise. It’s a very sweet story with a very, VERY good message.
