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
@vicorva Yeah, I'll always miss being beaten up by mudrabs because I can't hit them XD I love the weapon and spell combination because I determinedly play battlemages whenever I can despite the fact they're always worse than plain mages and warriors
Mine are mostly dark elves and imperials with a khajiit and a couple of high elves in the mix!
@vicorva I know what you mean, yeah. There are a couple of things I got used to in Skyrim that make it hard to go back though, like dual wielding and the ability to hold a sword and a spell at the same time. But really it's the lore of Morrowind I love, even in ESO most of my characters are dark elves because I just love Morrowind so much XD
@vicorva Same, and the number of times I've played Skyrim and thought 'this game is gorgeous, I wish it was as good as Morrowind'. Not that I don't also love Skyrim, but it's no Morrowind
@vicorva I believe the title of the ESO track is 'A Land of War and Poetry' if that helps!
I'm also super excited for Skywind, I do hope it actually gets finished one day because I will probably play it for the rest of my life
@vicorva One of my all-time favourite game soundtracks, no doubt! Really nailed the atmosphere of the game
@vicorva Fully recommend the version written for Skywind, which is the project trying to recreate Morrowind as a mod for Skyrim if you've not heard of it! I actually also really love the theme for the Elder Scrolls Online's Morrowind DLC as well, although that doesn't really become a cover of Morrowind until the very end
@vicorva Thank you! It doesn't really feel it but it always helps a bit to hear it, anyway. These things are always somehow easier to accept when they're coming from someone else
Cat person. Also writer and collector of mental illnesses but I talk about those less because anxiety. It's mostly going to be cats.
