Also known as, "I'm so sure it's just a phase."
Basically, an idea I've had for a while now... been putting it off because, at the time, I still hadn't come to terms with being genderqueer, and didn't want to do anything this... idk, public. But now I'm at peace with it all, I can laugh as I think back, and I think this is a pretty accurate description of my own coming-out process.
The pink thing can be whatever you imagine... an inner voice, destiny... my gay fairy godmother... all that matters is that it was always there. At first, I didn't notice (but it was still there), then, I didn't believe (because I just assumed I was straight), then... well, honestly, I overplayed the denial phase here... and then I started to realize I was, and then I was happy to realize, because finally things made sense and I felt free.
...Happy holidays, everyone!
