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...
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.

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!

A boy trapped in a girl's body.
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!"
