Welcome to my genderfluidity rant, friends. You have been warned =)
I think sometimes people -- especially cis people -- oversimplify genderfluidity. I've seen a lot of people thinking it's like oh so you move between female, male, and the monolithic third-gender nonbinary and that's it. But really no. Yes, a genderfluid person can be fully male or fully female or third-gender nonbinary but there's so many more genders out there that they can experience. Some may experience it female-male-nonbinary and that's perfectly fine and they don't need my validation to be as awesome and valid as they are, but I think that people need to open their minds a bit because not everyone is the same.
For me, since I'm only fluid between feminine/female and nonbinary genders (never masculine/male), I definitely experience a lot more genders than just female and third. Most of the time I don't care to even define which one I feel like at the time because that's just stressful. I just choose what pronouns I like that day and how I want to present.
90% of the time, I don't feel fully female or fully that third gender nonbinary. I float around between genders in the middle and am just me. As I've said, I don't like to label myself every day. But sometimes I am fully something, and then I can say "I am agender right now" or a girl or bigender or third gender or demigirl/demigender or anything. But either way, I am still me and still genderfluid (or to be more specific, genderfae).
What all of this is saying is that some people don't understand yet. But however you experience genderfluidity, you are awesome and valid. And to everyone else, you are awesome and valid too.
Thanks for reading, happy early Halloween, Samhain, Dia de los Muertos, or anything else you might celebrate, and HAPPY ASEXUALITY AWARENESS WEEK as well!
