you can be non-binary and still want to be referred to as he or she
you can be non-binary and still want to be someone’s girlfriend/boyfriend
you can be non-binary and be in a straight-passing relationship
you can be non-binary and want to refer to yourself with gendered language
there is no right way to be non-binary
your identity is perfect the way it is
don’t ever feel like you’re ~not queer enough~ because just by existing you are queer enough.
Relationship level 1: awkward flirting
Relationship level 2: getting naked
Relationship level 3: “what type of bender would i be in avatar”
It takes so little time to train your brain to just say “they” when you refer to strangers or anyone whose pronouns you’re not sure of…very minimal effort for most ppl..maybe realize not everything is about you and try it out
it changes the way u think about strangers/gender too. dont assume anything
Coming Out Simulator 2014 - a half-true game about half-truths
Coming Out Simulator is exactly what it says it is. It’s a free-to-play conversation simulator based on/inspired by the personal story of coming out of its creator, Nicky Case.
There’s no easy answer in Coming Out Simulator, no optimal ending to be achieved if you collect the requisite amount of points. Case based the game off a pivotal moment in his own life as a teenager. And just like in real life, the moment of “coming out” in this game is traumatic no matter which way the player chooses to approach it.
Ultimately, it’s liberating as well. But that’s not what the brunt of the experience playing Coming Out Simulator is actually like. […] There’s power in exploring a fantasy like the one in Mass Effect 3, but there’s also power in being reminded that “coming out” the way one does in that game is a fantasy, and a pretty far-fetched one for many people who faced far more difficult challenges when they actually came out.
Coming Out Simulator is a game about that second experience. It’s a painful one. But it’s also a necessary one, that I think more people who’ve never had to struggle with their own sexual identity should see for themselves.
If milkshakes bring boys to the yard, what brings girls? Smoothies? What brings non-binary cuties? Frappucinos? I need to know.
Help make Singapore’s first documentary on transgender men, following the lives of Christopher & others like him as he takes the final step: Surgery.
Hi there! Not sure if we’re allowed to post this, but I just wanted to share with you the documentary we’re making on FTMs in Singapore.
Singapore’s a modern first world nation, but at the same time, it’s Asian with very conservative traditional values, and that means that for many LGBT people, they face being disowned by their family if they come out.
In Singapore particularly, FTM visibility is almost zero - and that’s one of the main reasons we’re making this documentary.
Some fun facts: 1. There is no legal protection against LGBT discrimination in Singapore. 2. A transgender person cannot get his or her sex change on official documents until he or she has undergone sex reassignment surgery. 3. In Singapore, a transgender person who has not undergone sex reassignment surgery may be arrested for not using the toilet of their biological sex.
We need to hit $15,000 to reach our goal, and so far we’ve got $3.5k. Every dollar / Tweet / FB post counts.
We hope you’ll help us tell an important story about the freedom to love and be loved for who you are.

Please feel free to ask us any questions - we’ll be up all the way (in UTC +8 timezone now).
Guys!!! Recently there’s been a lot of discussion about LGBT issues in our mainstream media following the unshelving of childrens’ titles featuring alternative families and a protest against our version of Pride Day called Pink Dot, among other things.
These have been useful opportunities for promoting discussion about LGBTQ issues in Singapore, but so far public awareness of transgender people is dismal at best! I don’t personally know the creators of this project, but if you guys could help them to get this going it would be a lovely aid to helping us raise awareness about trans* issues while LGBTQ topics are still in the public eye! Please help to signal boost!!

explaining anxiety is the fucking worst because you feel like an idiot for being bothered by the things that bother you but it’s such an intense fear right at your core so you have to go through all of these other levels of yourself to try and get someone else to understand it
