so ive always been convinced that i was going to have to be closeted until i moved out bc of experiences with my mom (she'd misgender me, when i came out to her as nonbinary and asked her if she could respect my pronouns she literally said she couldn't, she'd go 'are you REALLY still mad abt that' if i got upset she misgendered me, i ended up having to get a binder through a friend bc i didnt trust my family with it, etc.)
but what keeps this from being a vent post is that?? she seems to have completely 180'd all of a sudden??? like we talked about it when we were out shopping and she mentioned she and my dad had talked and have been trying to avoid using gendered pronouns for me, she apologized for how bad the convo went when she came out to me and i was able to explain why what she said really hurt and made me not want to open up to her anymore, she talked about how she might slip up and misgender me by mistake but she wants me to be happy, shes apparently brought up to some ppl she knows that im lgbt+, she let me shop in the mens department at a store and was v conscious abt trying to get unisex clothing (there was only one thing where she was like 'ok i know this is feminine BUT if you wear it with this it balances out-'), and she bought me a shirt n socks from a pride collection???
like this was a few days ago but i still feel so emotional and validated about it? my parents just like. know im nonbinary. and they support it. thats heccin amazing ;-;
