Enamel Pin - Treat People as Experts in Themselves
The greatest authority on a given form of oppression is a member of that oppressed group. The greatest authority on an individual person, and their needs, us that individual person. When we forget this, when we think we know better, we often try to help in ways that do more harm than good. I hope this pin reminds its wearers, and observers, to stop and listen and to trust people when they give you an account of who they are.
(Trans women are women, trans men are men, and non-binary identities are valid (this isn't the only meaning of this pin but it's a vital one)).
This hard enameled stainless steel pin with yellow enamel paint is 3.8cm (or 1½ inches) wide.
It will look super cute on you and hopefully inspire some kindness.
£1 from the sale of each pin sold online will be split between the following charities: Mermaids, Rape Crisis National Helpline, Give Directly, Stonewall, and Southall Black Sisters.
