Hi, (non-binary) guys!

Just came to my mind today: What kind of family-related vocabulary are you comfortable with?

Do you go with the ones that align your assigned sex at birth or...? Or the opposite if you transitioned? Or some words of your own making,  ;D?

So, what do you like to be called? Mom, dad, sister, brother, sibling, aunt, uncle etc...

This is where life begins for me. It's a miracle I finally got it done.


My body is the home of my soul; not the other way around.

I'm more than anything an individual; I'm too complex to be put in any box.

The past is overrated - why stick with it when you are able to recreate yourself every day

How will you raise your hand when they call your name?"

I am done crying over not being feminine.
I am done griping about being too masculine.
I will be me.
And that's a non-binary being.
I am... ME!

No.  Its the story of a... human being.

My name. Or I prefer sibling for to describe me and my brother's relationship. And oddly liked to be called son instead of the more gender neutral term child by my dad bcos that'd be pretty cool. Not gonna happen though.
They/them pronouns preferred.

I am with Julia! Daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, my name, her, she, dad, mom, or maddy! So with my kids it's a little different because they are still getting used to the whole thing. My family still doesn't call me but, by my dead name and totally wrong pronouns and I have asked them otherwise. So as on facebook my status is "it's complicated!"

I came out to my family as non binary Trans-masc and still use the terms sister and daughter. I changed my name to a shortened and masculinized version. My pronouns are they/them and I have been on T for two months. The familial terms don't cause discomfort, Its more like, I am the same person, those terms have love.

  • I am the blurred line between male and female
So while I prefer he/him
I am okay with daughter because they mean it with love but son would really just fill me with overwhelming pride and I'd probably cry  :laugh: :laugh: But I am not an adult yet, but I would love to be called Dad but Mom would be just fine, maybe even a combination of those like mapa and I would much prefer brother over sister but I don't have siblings yet. I get called partner instead of boyfriend or girlfriend, but I'll make a list that says what I want despite what other people think because right now that's a huge factor in it
-Daughter or son
-Mapa
-brother
-partner
-Uncle
He/Him
