b. against the binary promotes love and gender liberation in the form of b&w garments.
b. against the binary was born shortly after BATB creators, Anastasia and Pam Fujii had their first child. As queer parents, they were confronted by a world in which, in order to guarantee them equal legal protections to their child, they would need to complete a second parent adoption process. This reality was both emotionally and financially taxing. It also further illustrated oppressive dynamics that they both knew well as a queer, non-binary, interracial couple, but were now experiencing through the new lens of parenthood. From the moment they announced that they were expecting a baby, assumptions and questions about their unborn baby's future gender identity ran wild. Once their baby was born, it got worse. They want their child and other children in this next generation to feel liberated from the inherently oppressive dynamics of the gender binary. We want a world where children hear, “who are you?” rather than, “what are you?” They want a world where children are safe to be and become their whole selves.
