i have to confess i got misty eyed at the line “I had begun to saunter”. i’m 21 and still figuring myself out but the idea that your identity is ineffable is so wonderful and, well, ineffable! thank you for sharing your story :)
I’m not non-binary or autistic, but I am ADHD, and didn’t get diagnosed until my mid-30s. So that feeling of being wrong is something I very much get. Thank you for this, thank you very much. And I’m glad that this has helped you find what was missing.
I grew up in the fifties. I liked femmy things — but as a girl who also liked playing in the dirt with bugs and playing with boys, I was also told I was wrong in many ways.
I’m a grandmother and great-grandmother. I’m also, I’ve come to believe, non binary. I LOVED this about Good Omens. It just made me happy.
