Life Story by SmittenFirefly Life Story by SmittenFirefly
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!

This made me smile. I did the exact same thing and then tacked on "you're asexual"
coming out is so complicated now. sigh

I can relate (minus the Gender-Queer part), though I did go through a stage that I call "Bi Bargaining" as a way to deny that I am Truly Gay.

I Totally believe that Bisexuality (as well as Poly & Pansexuality) is a Real thing but, FOR ME, it was simply a Phase of Denial/Acceptance.

the feeling of Relief was and still is immense.

I felt like this, even the "not this again" when your angel, fairy? whatever, said "psst, you are genderqueer"! lol!

My mom thinks I am transgendered because I am gender-non-conforming and she doesn't quiet understand. I like to drag. -___-

Hey this is me! Just instead of 'gay' it was 'Asexual', then 'Pan-(demi)-romantic'...Then 'Genderqueer'. -_-

Fate must have so much fun screwing with my life. I bet she's laughing at me right now.

Yup. -_- Of course, I am perfectly fine with being a pan-demi-romantic asexual who is genderqueer but its still kinda annoying...¬_¬ It certainly doesn't make life easy.



(And that's without even mentioning my mental issues. Yep. I have mental issues.)

What is genderqueer? I keep looking this up and I always forget. ><
Reply
:iconsmittenfirefly:
SmittenFirefly Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It's a term that means many things... it can mean (in my case) you identify as neither gender (genderless), you indetify as both (bigender), you vary from one to the other, depending on the day (genderfluid) or... anything else. It's just basically you don't 100% identify as your gender (that would be cisgender) but you're still not transgender.

So I would be considered genderqueer if I were genderfluid?
