Hi! Umm well, I'm genderqueer but I'm not out to anyone. Basically, I'm 26, mentally ill and demi-pansexual and my friends/family already make jokes about me being a 'special snowflake'. When I've brought up non-binary gender before in a general sense they stopped me mid-sentence to call me a 'deep thinker' and they are 'simpler folk' then changed the subject. They are on-board with binary trams, but they react as if non-binary genders are part of being mentally ill and not 'real'

The amount of shut down tactics holy shit

I’m so sorry you’re having to deal with this. It is unfair to you and you don’t deserve it.
