The weather is causing havoc and extreme weather changes in Tinsy Town and all the residents are worried!
Tinsy Town is a busy place with lots to do and see and is full of genderqueer residents including Pinapel, a non-binary dreamer who only plays by thier rules, Strawbry, the sassy trans femme, a ray of sunshine who everyone loves, and many other residents who make up the world of Pinapel and Friends™.
The weather is usually very mild in Tinsy Town, that’s because the residents control the weather - with their emotions. They usually enjoy the rain, sun, and snow and live happy lives with little variations of weather all year long.
The extreme changes in the weather patterns have been causing quite a stir and residents are getting frustrated as they are constantly caught off guard by these quick weather changes.
But, what is disrupting the residents' emotions to cause this weird weather? There has been so much negative news and protests against queer folks and many anti-trans and anti-LGBTQIA2S+ laws being passed that the residents are scared.
Syan is trying to stay calm by baking but he can’t get all the ingredients he needs!
Dragu got caught in the rain and had to swim home messing up her new computer.
Ori is sick of getting stuck in the wet grass fields in zir wheelchair!
Baya keeps getting sunburned, messing up his favorite past time, being outdoors.
Monny cannot fly, there are too many clouds in the way!
El cannot go places because xir skateboard wheels melted in the streets.
The residents have never seen these kinds of weather before and what's worse since it is unpredictable, it is hard to make any plans for the day, and it's hard to get anything done when you don't know if it's going to be sunny or if there will be a blizzard outside.
Tinsy Town's power supplies have been struggling to keep up with the demand for electricity putting the entire town at risk.
Some of the residents are thinking about leaving Tinsy Town. They need to work together to find a way to control the weather! Will this be the end of Pinapel and Friends™?
The main point of this blog is to address some of the issues being faced by the queer community at this time, normalize the use of gender pronouns and explore how cis people and trans people can have conversations with each other when sharing personal experiences about their gender identity, especially when someone's pronouns are not the "standard" pronouns (she/her/hers or he/him/his).
