Love your blog - but the comment above about non-binary people not existing is not cool. Just because you haven't met one, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Denial is erasure, and it does you no personal harm to allow for other forms of existence, much like we have fought for gay men to be seen.

@Garret Groenveld: Who said I haven't met one? I am just strongly opposed to reinforcing gender stereotypes, which is what saying you're nonbinary does. ("I'm a woman who likes trucks -- that can't be a woman so I'm nonbinary!" "I'm a man who likes to paint my nails, so that makes me nonbinary!") Instead of selling yourself short, people should be whatever kind of man they want to be, or whatever kind of woman they want to be, and then make society accept them for who they are. Androgyny has been around forever and doesn't need to be re-invented.
