Here at Metal Marvels, we aren’t just about female empowerment- we are passionate about empowerment of ALL people, no matter your race, gender, sex, color, age, etc.
Awesome people are our jam, and those awesome people come in many forms. The only rule? Be a good fucking human!
Despite the fact that it’s 2018 and we have so many rights and freedoms, we still have a long fucking way to go for equality and justice for all. There are still many people who are struggling to live their lives in peace and happiness amidst close-mindedness and bigotry.
It absolutely breaks my heart to see the impact that ignorance and hate can have on people and society in general.
One of these unfairly marginalized groups is transgendered individuals. Transgender people are those whose gender identity is different than the gender they were assumed to be at birth based on their physical characteristics.
According to the National Center for Transgender Equality:
“When we're born, a doctor usually says that we're male or female based on what our bodies look like. Most people who were labeled male at birth turn out to actually identify as men, and most people who were labeled female at birth grow up to be women. But some people's gender identity – their innate knowledge of who they are – is different from what was initially expected when they were born. Most of these people describe themselves as transgender.” [Source]
The National Center for Transgender Equality is an organization that focuses on advocating for the rights of transgender people, leading the way in bringing about policy changes that protect the safety and rights of transgendered people. Their mission is to end violence and discrimination towards transgendered people by providing education and advocacy that empowers, protects and promotes fairness and equality.
Metal Marvels is proud to support this life-saving organization and the amazing work that they do. Through their projects and initiatives, they are changing shit for the better to improve the lives of transgender people, while also providing education to enhance acceptance and understanding on a National level.
For every "I AM HUMAN" bangle purchased, Metal Marvels donates part of the proceeds to the National Center for Transgender Equality.
We are all human and deserve to be treated as such.
