Sburb assigns Roles meant to CHALLENGE people.

That being said, here are the challenges/lessons of each class and aspect. (Except for Lord and Muse, due to the lack of info on them in canon)

Classes

Heir: learn to communicate and work with others to get things done

Seer: trust yourself and your own intuition

Knight: stop hiding behind a mask and stand by your friends

Witch: inspire/motivate others and stay optimistic/learn to let your burdens go

Rogue: control your emotions/impulses and become independent

Prince: become less image focused and narcissistic

Page: step out from the shadows and accept/embrace who you are

Maid: become less self centered and care/provide for others

Sylph: accept that you have an influence on reality and aren’t powerless and then use that to heal

Bard: care about others well being and spirituality, not just your own

Mage: realize your own talents and don’t get caught up in self deprecation

Thief: don’t be so concerned with what others think of you

Aspects

Broad City
Season 1 Titles

“The design brief from Comedy Central was simple: they wanted bold and colorful hand-drawn animations and a visual identity that exuded the same level of comedy and weirdness as the show. For the first meeting, designer Mike Perry ideated and conceptualized pencil sketches of how they could play around with type. The Comedy Central team, including Glazer and Jacobson, decided they wanted to use all of them, evolving and refreshing the intro with every episode, as if it were a vital character in the show.”

The inevitable misunderstanding of Mx

Transgender woman’s request to become ‘Ms’ refused by NatWest

Staff said she could not have her preferred honorific, but could call herself ‘Mx’ instead – an exchange that left her ‘feeling like a fake’. The bank has now apologised and blamed human error

I knew this would happen as Mx became more well-known, and some errors in the recent media flurry about Mx (namely that Mx is a title for transgender people) are probably part symptom, part cause.

Time to share the misconceptions post again, and a few points pertinent to this post:

  • Transgender people are protected by law here in the UK, in this case in that they are entitled to have whatever title they feel best fits their gender.
  • Mx is not a title for transgender people - it is a title that has no gender, similar to the way Ms has no marital status.
  • Titles are not legally binding, and you should not require any “proof” of your gender to change your title on any records regardless of gender presentation.
  • Title limitations are not a security issue - we have much more sophisticated ways to confirm identity.
  • Degendering trans people is horrible as well as illegal.
