There's Room For Everyone In The X

There's Room For Everyone In The X

. Mellina White-Cusack

Our new logo has stirred up some questions: What is this X= all about? What does it mean? And how does it relate to me? Our friend and guest blogger, Kimberly Harrington, brings words to this symbol, to our visual call to action. Read her powerful statement, and join the #HumanAgenda. 


We have an agenda. And it's not a feminist agenda. It's not a gay agenda. It's not a butch or femme or alphabet soup string of initials agenda. It's a human agenda. An agenda that says:


We are for those who want us, who have sought us out, and for those who aren’t quite sure yet. We’re not for everyone, but we are for anyone. We’re comfortable in our own skin and even more on yours and we will go where we are invited. We are for, not against - unafraid yet not naïve, and we’re ready to turn this world full of labels into one big label that reads, “for you.”

Any girl or woman or person who does their own thing, dresses the way they want, gets their hands dirty, and keeps an open mind was, is and always will be a tomboy. 

It’s an agenda that’s signed with an X. That marks the spot, seals it with a kiss,
and crosses out the negativity and infighting  that we’ve all had to deal with for far, far too long. It’s an agenda that wants nothing more and nothing less than for our common language to be respect, and our national anthem to be HELL YES. This isn’t an activist agenda. This is a human agenda. 

Because what's more human than being exactly, brazenly, no apologies who you were born to be? 


That's our agenda. There's room for you. There's room for me. There's room for everyone in the X.

    Being a 64 year young lesbian, I love the #humanagenda.
    All people, of All walks of life Matter!! As it says on the t-shirt “Divided We Stall”. We must come together in the spirit of love and unity. We are all a part of the web of life!!
    That being said..Can’t wait to get my underwear :)

    Last but not least, I’m confused as to why are we complaining about/subtly putting down the a"lphabet soup". Is it a problem that people’s identities are so complex that they all want different labels? Wasn’t too sure how ignoring that supports the "human agenda’, would love to hear more about the intent behind this phrasing.

    I love your underwear, but I am not a fan of this new logo. As others have expressed, it feels like we’re erasing Black Lives Matter with All Lives Matter. It feels a little hollow, like a targeted branding campaign. I’m not sure what it’s really supposed to mean, at the end of the day.

    Still gonna keep buying your tightie whities tho, because they are the best thing on the block!

    I purchased your products because my struggles are not the same, but my rights and need for dignity represent another segment of the Human Agenda. I have lung cancer and traditional bras are very uncomfortable; they exacerbate the feelings of tightness in the chest and the often constricting feelings that make some of us have difficulty breathing. We also frequent radiology and cannot be wearing any metal. In addition, I have a chemo side effect of an outbreak of rashes in my groin. I cannot wear women’s underwear with elastic irritating my groin. I had been wearing my husband’s boxer briefs. We deal with enough discomfort and inconvenience, and I’m a believer that your style underwear will solve a myriad of issues among a huge population for a myriad of reasons. Thank you.

    I really appreciate Maria McDowell’s comment and I understand how she might make the parallel, but I also believe that intention and context matter, so I thought I’d share a bit of both.

    TomboyX’s Human Agenda is not meant to negate or overlook the incredible chasm that separates the ability of some individuals to be “brazenly who they were meant to be” from others. It is important to convey that those struggles are far from equal. Unlike #AllLivesMatter, which was created in direct response to (and intended to undermine) the specific struggles of black people in this country, the #HumanAgenda is an attempt to create a positive and unified voice for every marginalized individual who is working for the right to be seen and treated as a human being. Their struggles are not the same, but their rights are.

    Consumer brands face a challenging path forward as they use their ‘platform’ to promote real and positive social impact. The team at TomboyX has been fueled by letter after letter from people of every gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, age, social status, profession, and geography who’ve expressed that this brand and its products have given them some amount of comfort, confidence, and support necessary to become more of ‘themself.’ We have not taken those letters lightly. It was in direct response to people all over the world who took the time to share those stories that the Human Agenda began to take shape. Even as a purveyor of humble underwear, it is our sincere mission to give a collective voice to individuals who are struggling to ‘claim their full humanity.’ Through our ongoing efforts to tell the specific stories of the people we admire, we will also “name” the persecutors and offenders without attacking them. As we’ve said, we choose to be Above, Not Anti.

    Maria – I hope, if nothing else, you will appreciate the value of our intent and our commitment to every individual dealing with injustice as part of the rightful act of becoming the person they were meant to be.

    Thanks for sharing and listening.
