Comet Melanie Mae – that’s what it says here – is in no way high-maintenance:
My gender changes depending on the day, or week, or even depending on the hour. It also means the pronouns I’m comfortable with can change too.
To avoid a pronoun gaffe, and crushing underfoot the meek and marginalised, you must first check the colour-coded bracelets.
Pink means she/her; yellow means they/them; and blue means he/him.
And because this arrangement isn’t sufficiently complicated, or enough of an imposition on your time and sanity, said bracelets can be combined. It’s fully customisable. So do pay attention.
