Okay, here we are, we're doing this. This is scary-
I have been messing around with gender expression and questioning my gender identity for about a year or a year and a half. Just two days ago I realized, well damn, I really don't wanna be labeled as she/her. I have come out to my partner, and three peers so far. I cant come out as gender-queer to my parents/family until I move out, they don't understand they/them pronouns, gender fluidity, ect.
Now, the question- how do you stay solid is your gender identity when people tell you you don't "fit" what said identity looks like? I currently present rather feminine, occasionally androgynous. My curiosity is centered around most gender-queer people presenting rather androgynous. I don't want to be invalidated because of how I dress, yet in a way, I understand the confusion. How do y'all dress more masculine/feminine and still be able to stand strong in your gender expression?
I'm very excited to see everyone/anyone's opinions on this subject, I've been curious for a while. Love you all, have a blessed day/night~
