Hi everyone, I'm Grem and I'm totally new to mastodon. I'm demigender (she/her).
I'm predominantly an LGBT high fantasy writer, currently working towards self-publishing my first novel.
I'm also big into video gaming. I love me a good story-driven RPG.
I have a very antisocial cat named Morrigan, and nothing cheers me up like a good cup of tea. :)
It takes different people different amounts of time to do things they want or need to do and that's fine, especially if you throw mental health issues into the mix.
It took me kind of a long time to learn that so just in case anybody's still wondering it's fine that it's taking you longer (even if it's taking you years longer) to do whatever it is you're doing, you're still going to get there.
If you do come out as nonbinary, you will have to do it many times. You will have to explain again and again what it means to be nonbinary.
You are not being dishonest if some people know your true self while some don't. You are not required to correct anyone on your gender.
It's their fault for assuming you are binary.
UK pol, petition link, boosts encouraged
There's a UK parliament official petition going around with the goal of having the Gender Recognition Act reformed to better accommodate Transgender and Non Binary identities. Link below for anyone who can sign, for everyone else
