Being non-binary is not easy. Knowing that I have a 1/8 chance of being murdered (as a TWoC) is not easy. Waking up to the fresh scent of gender dysphoria every morning is never easy. Walking down the street and knowing everyone is itching to know what genitalia I have is never easy. Knowing that some would be willing to harass, assault, or murder me to find out is never easy. If you think “choosing” to express my true identities is easy, then you are a part of the problem. The only thing I choose to be is happy.
