I am going to a wedding in a few weeks, and I am set to be a bridesmaid. Problem is, I'm nonbinary and strongly prefer to present androgynously/masculine. I am currently closeted, wearing a dress is required for this, and I cannot wear even a compressive bra. All that I might be able to stand. It's mainly all the "you look like a girl for once!", "Don't you want to be pretty like this more often!", and "teasing" comments that I'm worried about. Tips for handling a day of social dysphoria?
This might be way too late, and also this advice is childish but: I honestly pretend to be a spy. This dress, this look? It’s just part of my cover. Oh, you’re complimenting it? Perfect, that means the disguise is working. Secretly, I’m the manliest man to ever man. Or, alternatively, I’m the most androgynous spy to ever trick these fools into thinking I’m a pretty princess. Ha, those fools!
Or you can straight up ask people not to tease you like that. You don’t have to come out to them, just tell them that you really don’t it. If they really respect you, they’ll respect your wishes, too.
