Ellow's Notes: D. 72 Headscarves by MissLunaRose Ellow's Notes: D. 72 Headscarves by MissLunaRose
I've been meaning to write you something on how headscarves work in Dimension 72, and here it is!

I'm also working on regional clothing trends, so I can indicate subcultures as I draw. :) Currently I don't have any other "Ellow's Notes" planned, but if you'd like to suggest a topic, feel free!

YESSSS ALL THE YES
I definitely agree with Orgetzu's comment down there

I LOVE cultural development! It's one of my favorite aspects of writing fantasy/sci-fi stories! This is great

This is really nicely written, as well as that the drawings/colors are nice. I also like that you included stuff about transgenders. =)

Thank you so much! :hug:

There aren't enough conversations that include transgendered people, and it was relevant, so I thought it would definitely be a good idea to include. :)

You're very welcome. Hug

I have to agree. It's a nice little tid-bit, and it tends to be over-looked. And knowing someone who is actually Transgender, I especially appreciate it.
Speaking of which, since you are far more professional at writing than I am, I would like your advice on exactly how Transgender is used and stuff, in your experience. Because I've met people who use Transgender as a noun, and say stuff about "transgenders," using it as such, and people who think that it needs to be an adjective, and as such always say "transgender people."

Frankly, your question is less about writing and more about personal/political preferences. I personally tend to use the term "transgender people" because the wording places a bit more emphasis on their humanity (as opposed to "transgenders," which could be more easily misread as othering) and it's what I'm used to reading.

You'd probably be fine with either term, but if you're really curious about the specific implications and current political mood, I'd recommend you speak with an expert on queer issues, preferably a trans one. There may be articles online too. :) I've been a serious feminist for less than a year, so I'm not particularly knowledgeable yet.

Alright. Thanks for your opinion on the matter. I should probably try and find some more professional information on the matter, but I'm not even sure where to look, so I suppose I'll just call people whatever they feel the most comfortable with. =)

There's a lot of talk about queer issues on tumblr, if you were curious. :aww: A search for "transgender tumblr" would lead to plenty of blogs, many of which would probably allow asks if you wanted to talk directly with someone.

But asking people what they're personally comfortable with is definitely a great way to go about things; you can't go wrong that way. :D

Yeah. Perhaps I'll actually do that someday. Everybody does have their different opinions, after all. And some people don't even want to be called trans, which avoids it entirely. ((I don't actually have a tumblr account. o.O ))

Indeed. :aww:

I've never heard of people not wanting to be called "trans;" do you know why those people feel that way? :?

(I don't have one either. I just usually go to tumblr when I want to hear people's opinions about things like this.)

That's super awesome, and I'm so glad you included transgender people~
I was wondering about clothing (besides the headscarves), and what different ages and genders and such wear, so that'd be a cool topic! Another could be stuff about typical family units.

Thanks! :aww:

And thank you for the suggestion! That's been something I've been trying to figure out as well. I'll write it down and see if I can make another Ellow's Notes once I've worked out the details. :)

Ohhh yes! ; 7 ; I've been waiting for some more info on their species/culture! It's so cool!
I think it's amazing that they use cloth... very much like hair. Even if it isn't hair, we can kind of rationalize it as such.
I wish gradient pants were trending here on earth. I NEED a pair that is dark red and fades to black at the end x_x

That would be an awesome pair of pants. :o You definitely need one, so then you can show me. Until then I suppose you can always draw yourself wearing some and no one on dA will be the wiser. :shifty:

I've seen the raddest gradient clothes on tumblr, but they're designer and cost hundreds of dollars! ; _ ;
The only place I've seen gradient stuff is in maurices. But it's always see through. :/

(Very true haha)

Oh, dear. :noes: That really needs to go into style and drop in price ASAP. Gradient clothes are simply too cool not to show up in all the stores.
