Page 9: “The illustration on the bottom-left side of the page depicts several fists raised in the air with hearts floating around them. Many of the fists are holding flags that read: QUEER”
Page 18: “TRANSGENDER FOLKS OFTEN USE TERMS LIKE ‘ASSIGNED SEX’ OR ‘DESIGNATED SEX’ TO DESCRIBE HOW A PERSON HAS BEEN REFERRED TO AT BIRTH RATHER THAN JUST THE WORD ‘SEX’ ON ITS OWN.” AFAB ASSIGNED FEMALE AT BIRTH AMAB ASSIGNED MALE AT BIRTH “THIS LANGUAGE IS MORE APPROPRIATE AND MORE RESPECTFUL TO THOSE WHOSE ASSIGNED SEX DOES NOT ALIGN WITH THEIR GENDER.”
Page 19: “GENDER EXISTS ON A SPECTRUM, JUST LIKE COLORS. SOME PEOPLE LIKE TO DESCRIBE THIS AS A LINEAR SPECTRUM…BUT IN REALITY, IT’S QUITE A BIT MORE BROAD…” …”IF A PERSON IDENTIFIES SOLELY AS MALE OR FEMALE, THAT WOULD MEAN THEY HAVE A BINARY GENDER. IF A PERSON IDENTIFIES OUTSIDE THAT BINARY AND HAS A GENDER THAT IS NOT SOLELY MALE OR FEMALE, THAT PERSON WOULD BE CONSIDERED ‘NON-BINARY.’ PRETTY SIMPLE.”
Page 37: “INHABITING A BODY THAT DOESN’T ALIGN WITH THEIR GENDER CAN CAUSE PEOPLE QUITE A BIT OF MENTAL ANGUISH. ‘GENDER DYSPHORIA’ IS THE TERM USED TO DESCRIBE THE NEGATIVE OR UNCOMFORTABLE EMOTIONS MANY TRANSGENDER PEOPLE FEEL REGARDING THEIR BODIES OR APPEARANCE.”
Page 53: “ADDITIONALLY, JUST BECAUSE A PERSON IS ASEXUAL, DOESN’T MEAN THAT THEY DO NOT EXPERIENCE SEXUAL AROUSAL. PLENTY OF ASEXUAL PEOPLE STILL MASTURBATE OR EVEN HAVE SEX WITH THEIR PARTNERS.”
