How did you know you were non-binary?
1 month ago · · Advice,
Hi, I'm a 19 year old girl (I think). I was born as a girl, but I've always felt more connected to a masculine look. In high school I desperately tried to look more feminine and it didn't feel too bad, but now that I'm out of high school and I can express myself however I want, it does feel better. When I was a child I hated everything that had to do with being a girl; dresses, makeup, long hair etc. When I hit puberty and started growing boobs, that's when it got worse. I hated my body. Now I'm fine with having boobs, but I don't love it. I'm neutral about them.
Right now I don't completely feel like a woman, but I'm not a man either. I don't mind having a female name or being grouped with women in locker rooms or restrooms. I speak many languages, but the country I'm from has a language without gendered pronouns or words. But in English and other languages people have always used she/her pronouns. And I'm usually fine with that. It doesn't feel super right but not wrong either. I'm having a hard time defining my gender, I could describe it in percentages. I usually feel about 80% woman, sometimes I feel 100%, sometimes less. I feel like I'm not woman enough, but I'm not non-binary enough to be non-binary either, if that makes any sense? Anyway, I guess I'm looking for advice. How did you know you were non-binary? And if you're not non-binary, how did you know you weren't?
