I tweeted it yesterday, and I’ll just copy the tweet text here:

I’m non-binary, but I lacked the confidence to say it in 2016 when I came out as female; it felt wrong but I knew, and still know: I’m not male.

I briefly presented nb in 2020. I’ve decided to own it. I’m more confident now. They/them but she/her is still OK (legacy/deprecated).

I briefly alluded to it in my previous article aswell: Better respect for non-binary people, in defense of human rights

To those readers of mine who don’t know about transgender people, and especially non-binary people, you may benefit from reading that article, linked above, if you’re curious that is!

That’s really all I have to say. It’s a very boring revelation actually. I already came out once before, in 2016, but as a trans woman. Back then, I was very insecure and frightened what others might think, but my experience afterwards told me that there is truly nothing to fear.
