Too Much of a Person - Penny C

About identifying as non-binary: It's hard to explain it to people, I think I've found it difficult. I've been in a few situations where I've been with my family, friends of friends at a pub and I've tried to explain something and they say, 'you don't know, you're confused, you don't know whether you're a boy or a girl, so you're transexual' and I say, 'I'm not transexual'. I wouldn't say I'm transgender either as I don't feel like I want to be male. So, for other people, there is some confusion around my decisions. I think it's really tricky if you're not that as its not black or white. If you have to have a gender construct of 'man' or 'woman' and you're not picking, people can't digest or understand that.
