Project Outcome

Gender In Chinese Characters 1) is a Chinese character-generating machine that reshapes gender fluidity in Chinese characters. This addresses the challenges of non-binary gender people facing difficulties finding appropriate pronouns for themselves in Chinese. Furthermore, many characters of 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 written Chinese by re-creating some Chinese characters.
