📸 by me Yesterday, someone asked me what my transition was all about, so I guess a good place to start this new content would be there. Looking back on my childhood as an adult, I can honestly say I never associated myself with having a gender. Growing up, I was a “tomboy” (yuck, hate that word) but I also was feminine in my own way. I remember the mental anguish and how foreign it felt to have a cycle but I was always to afraid of speaking up about it because I didn’t want it to seem like I was just complaining when in fact I was dying inside. As I got older, I tried to force myself into this hyper-feminine box because I was a woman, right? The constant flip flopping and trying to find ways to fit into the box of what it meant to be a woman was exhausting. Drag definitely opened my eyes and showed me my entire life was essentially an act. I am so happy to be free from those chains.
I am transitioning into being me. That’s what my transition is all about. I am a transmasculine non-binary person. I’m a person who does not experience gender and while that is extremely rare, we have leads in science that support it. Hopefully in the future, medicine and science will develop in order to better explain my condition and we can learn even better ways to live as non-binary people! But for now, respect and compassion is all I ask. My pronouns are they/them and my is Cadence. - 1 day ago
