Femmephobia = misogyny series

I made these activist works as a response to reading and hearing stories about parents that take dolls away from their children, because they’re born with a penis. I think it’s very harmful to tell kids what they can and can’t like. It’s a toy that is teaching your kid to be caring.

These works are also responses to how anything feminine on a boy or man or person with a penis, is seen as horrible and unthinkable. There’s lots of hatred towards trans women, towards gender non conforming people who dress feminine… it’s as if being feminine, feeling feminine, or appearing feminine is less than presenting masculine. I think this way of thinking is a particular brand of misogyny. Since the feminine and femininity is just as valuable and beautiful as masculinity.
