What It’s like Being Non-Binary in a World That Says You’re Femme
Just Elise

As a somewhat intersexed, very female appearing, mostly woman and definitely dyke, born in 1950 when the gender binary was carved out of a single block of solid steel, I applaud your post. You said what I’ve been trying to make people understand all my life. It’s not “too soon” for this culture to catch up. If anything, we’re dragging our feet. Thank you!

“I despise living in an aggressively binary culture that decisively and unrelentingly places me in the feminine camp. And that this camp is so profoundly narrow. That it comes with so many limitations and pitfalls.”
