Six Years

Someone wrote…

I came out to my mother as non-binary after six years of knowing. Halfway through telling her, she said “it’s totally fine, but this is confusing” and left. I admit I’m a little hurt that she didn’t even try to understand the concept of more than two genders when it applies to her child.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
