Lost sheep

Someone wrote…

I have finally found my true gender but i feel like such a late bloomer and there are things i still don’t know. I feel like a lost sheep.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Pardon if this comment is ignorant, but this made me think:

    Whereas cisgender comes with massive societal privilege, other forms of gender identity come with an opportunity of exploration and challenge and wisdom and learning that I think can be arrived at no other way.

    Is ignorance a privilege?

    I hope I am always confused by my gender, because when I thought I had it all figured out, I was seriously messed up.

    No worries, there are enough of us lost sheep out there to make our own herd.

    I like that idea of our own herd :) That’s what Genderfork is for…

    “Not knowing” and “Never knowing” are two very different things! Enjoy the growing experience, it’s like a story that could never be spoiled the masses. And remember to judge yourself by your own standards, you’ll have your own rules to follow (and edit!) to be the person you want to be, and not a poor imitation of a person you’re not.

    Late to the party, but you’re not too late to start wondering and exploring. I’m 24 and have finally admitted to myself that yes, I’m bisexual and bigender. Better late than never, they always say.
