I Wish….

I wish I knew where to find all the other gender-queer people around this place… I want to spend time with just them, so I won’t have to feel so alone anymore.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    By this place, do you mean your physical location, or the inter webs? There are so many places on the internet, but I always feel like I need people, like real live people in front of my face, to talk with and be with. I know three or four non-binaries, but we’re not all in the same circles, so we don’t all hang out at the same time. So the majority of the time, I feel really alone because it seems like there’s no one to turn to when I’m misgendered on a daily basis. If there were a bunch of us all together, it’d be so great because we could all relate in a really really vital way that our society doesn’t give us much of a chance to relate about nearly ever. So I know that doesn’t provide any advice, but I wanted to tell you that you’re not alone in feeling that particular type of alone. <3

    If by “this place” you mean the internet, then me too, and I’m here if you want to talk to me, at least.

    I wish I could find genderqueer people in person, too. I’ve met a few at the local LGBT center but it’s still hard. Plus most of them are a lot younger than me and we don’t really have much in common other than being genderqueer.

    Ryan, yes, I agree. The non-binary folk I have met at the local center are also a good decade+ younger than me and it makes me feel like an even bigger weirdo than I already would because I am at a different place in life. And it reinforces that I should have stuff figured out and not need a support group made up of teens and twenty-somethings.
