I’m fairly open about my identity. I bring up my pronouns when it’s relevant. Like if someone starts calling me she all over the place, I’ll be ‘Actually it’s they’, usually. (Unless it’s a job thing, because money is slightly more important than people respecting my pronouns, with my need to exist and all.)
In most scenarios I will correct people and that can bring up a conversation, or not. It’s kind of annoying when it brings up a conversation all of the time, like it does with my mum.
With my family, I talk to my mum a lot about these things, because she continually expresses her confusion about it all. So I’m continually answering questions on it. Not entirely sure if she wants to actually get answers to her questions. It’s kind of annoying. She’s very like, ‘It all sounds silly and pointless to me’. That’s fine. It doesn’t need to be important to you. So, I talk to my mum a bit. My family I think are aware, but we don’t really talk about it much. I’d like to talk to my family about it, if they would be willing to listen, but I doubt that they’d be interested. I think they’d see it more as a ‘OK. Why? Why would you make life harder for yourself?’ It’s my decision.
