    Hi, everyone!

    I, uh, haven't come in here a lot in the past. Mostly because it felt like it wasn't my place and I didn't want to interject myself into conversations between LGBTQ folks and their issues.

    But, I guess it is my place now.

    After really doing some thinking about my pretty long history with questioning my identity (a pretty brutal cycle of questioning it, then getting embarassed/disgusted and shoving away all attempts to explore it on repeat for like 15 years) and some really good help, advice and friendship from some wonderful people on here I can say:

    Hi, I'm a girl and I love girls. I came out to my partner, as well as some of my close friends, who have been very supportive and understanding, and feel better about myself than I have in a very, very long time. I am guessing it is probably a big surprise to a lot of folks, and it isn't something I am ready to run onto the rooftops and scream about and come out to, like, my job, but after spending so long never feeling good about myself I don't want to have to pretend to be something I'm not where is I feel most comfortable. And for me that is in my safe places, like here.

    It is weird because it simultaneously feels like the end of a long journey for finally breaking the cycle and figuring out who I am when I know it is really the start of a new one that is going to be difficult and scary but also beautiful and the only one I could have ever ended up going on.

    So, yeah, hi. I'm Zoe.

    you're thinking of when volgin says "kuwabara kuwabara" as a superstition against being struck by lightning

    the kookaburra song is an australian folk/nursery song about the bird the kookaburra

    I have been, like, right on the threshold of Figuring it Out for a very long time and just kept turning away right before I did so now that I am embracing all of me it has been super fun and come very easy and natural because I've spent 15 years prepping, kinda.


    But now I am back at work and getting deadnamed every 5 seconds and having to use it and I know that this is part of the experience too and it is gonna be hard and painful and scary at times but woof

    It'll get better, I know

    I got deadnamed by both my parents last week. My mum's only recently become consistent with it anyway but it's been months since my dad used my old name so that was a weird thing to hear come out of nowhere.

    i have never actually identified with any names except this one so ???
    the handle is closer to me than my legal name for sure.

    i considered changing my name at some point, but no usual human names particularly strike me.
    there aren't really any names that have hard non-binary connotations anyway, are there?

    There are names where the gender is not immediately apparent (like Max or Sam), but I don't know of any that are specifically NB
