A month ago, I came out as Non Binary, I realised that would come with a certain degree of backlash, but I didn’t expect it to be as bad as it was. I could barely go through lessons without being mocked, deliberately called a girl or being told I only came out to seek attention.
I wanted to run off and cry in the toilets, but my school has no gender neutral toilets, so I just had to suffer. I’m so sick of there being such a stigma around being gender neutral, for instance, I recently got the form to apply for work experience, and the only gender options were male and female, and I had to draw my own box to tick. I just want everyone to be equal, no matter what.
