I was wondering if you had any advice on dealing with the mindset you grew up with. I struggle a lot with my own name and MY gender. My parents don't mind me dating whoever. But they believe gender has no in between, and I've been stuck in that mindset for 19 years. My friends avoid pronouns with me because they know I hate female pronouns but hearing neutral pronouns feels like acid after being told they don't exist. I feel lost because I'm not 'her' or 'him', but 'they' seems wrong now too.
I’m going to be honest I don’t really have any advice but I am very curious to see how others may be able to help, so please can people help out down below. Thank you.
