here's your periodic reminder that "being trans" is simply not identifying consistently as the gender you were assigned at birth! it doesn't mean "transitioning", nor "taking hormones", nor "getting surgery". It doesn't even mean dressing differently! (though many trans people do several of these things!)

also! nonbinary folks are trans generally speaking! You can opt out of the trans label/community, but being nonbinary inherently meets the singular condition of being trans mentioned above!

I -often- see questioning nonbinary folks who seem to struggle with whether or not they qualify as trans, or are trans, etc.

it's a valid thing to ask yourself, but if you're nonbinary, you already qualify for being trans, whether or not you decide to transition. just so y'all know. you can be trans, right now, and you don't have to earn that or qualify for it in some way.


@poss_bot But (among other things) be prepared for gatekeepers from both cis and trans circles who want to view things as absolutes.
