Fakty TVN (part of Discovery Group) made a pretty nice material about Demi Lovato coming out, inviting some actual non-binary people (Sybil Grzybowskie @mykofanes from Neutral Language Council - the team behind i.a. pronouns.page, and Anton Ambroziak from oko.press).

Ciekawi Cię, jakiego języka używają polskie osoby niebinarne? Które zaimki i rodzaje gramatyczne są najpopularniejsze? Jakimi etykietkami się opisujemy? Jak te trendy zmieniają się w czasie?
Nas też! Dlatego ruszamy z niebinarnym spisem powszechnym!
My favourite quote from professor Richard Dawkins is not the one where he calls the God of the Old testament a “capriciously malevolent bully”, or any of those where he otherwise openly mocks religion.
It's one where he doesn't even mention religion at all, even though he's destroying its very foundations.
that's why “minoritised” is often preferred over “minority”
Author talks about how homophobia is not intrinsic to Asian cultures and it's time we stopped believing that. I've been saying this for years, although with my knowledge of being brought up in Hinduism and within the context of South Asia only.
You tell me we have a homophobic, sex shaming culture?
I show you Ardhanareshwar, a half-male half-female deity
I show you Sikhandi, a trans man written into the religious text Mahabharata
I show you all of Kama Sutra and the sculptures that adorn our temples
It's all there in the texts. Everything before Manu Smriti tells a completely different story to the one we know.
The author here speaks more on Chinese context. I thought I should add the South Asian one (albeit only limited to Hindu texts)
Why do we say ACAB?
"...we don’t say all cops are bad, we say All Cops Are Bastards. We don’t mean bastard as an unpleasant or despicable person. Bastard is taken from the word bastardize meaning corrupt or debase.
[Cops] are corrupted, [firstly,] by the possessions of power. They can use their authority to inflict power on people.
[And secondly,] the very laws that they are trying to enforce are corrupt and they are used to subdue different identities and minorities."
i command machines & splash my queerness all over the place.
