Hi there. I'm new so I wanted to introduce myself. My name is in the working, I'm searching for a gender neutral name. Right now I'm thinking of Jean. So I guess you can call me that ^^
I'm 16 years old and I'm genderqueer, ftmish. My preferred pronouns are he/him/his; and also any gender neutral one's you can think of.
This is probably the truest autobiography I have ever written.
Easter was fun, but my father-in-law was a bit of an ass... I think.
The problem is I'm not sure, his sarcasm tone isn't that distinct from his sincere tone since he's fairly cranky all the time.
It was time to cut the ham and he said something to the order of, "well it has to be a man to cut the meat and I'm not going to do it because I have a headache... that means you have to do it!" and then when I said I didn't want to because I don't know anything about how to cut the meat he said, "well if you want to be a man you have to do it!"
I've been out to my mother as genderqueer/FTM femme for about 3 months and we've been talking about it quite a lot, but she still refuses to use my preferred pronouns.
In our last talk, I finally set it as a boundary for me.
"I can tell you're trying to help me, and that you're trying to understand and that's awesome. But if you want to help me, this is how to do it. I really do need you to call me by either "he" or "they". It's not just a want, it's a need".
