They Just Think I Am

Someone wrote…

I’m AFAB and can’t express my being nonbinary to anyone because I enjoy some woman-coded things and they just think I am and should be a girl.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    I’m sorry you can’t tell anyone in your day-to-day life about this, but hopefully it’ll make you feel better to know you’re not alone. I’m afab, and although I’m still questioning, the label that feels best for me right now is nonbinary. This is something I’ve only told my mom in person, since I like so many feminine things, and often present femininely. My pronouns at this point are she/her (since I haven’t found any that feel better and it doesn’t make me uncomfortable), so that’s another big factor in it, but the point is that I understand how it is. I hope you’ll be able to come out and be accepted, and I just wanted to say thank you for sharing. This helped me feel less alone in feeling how I do.
