Project Outcome

Gender In Chinese Characters 1) is a Chinese character-generated machine that reshapes gender fluidity in Chinese characters. It is difficult for non-binary gender people to find the correct pronouns to express themselves in Chinese, and many characters about gender have been stigmatized and unreasonably described. For example, negative characters related to reproduction have female radicals, while male radicals express positive meanings. I want to call attention to gender fluidity in the Chinese by re-creating some Chinese characters.
