JoanieDark Posted April 14, 2017 Share Posted April 14, 2017 This is always something I'm fascinated to talk about...what catalyst led to people discovering their gender identities other than cisgender assignments? I had a couple, personally. My earliest memory of one of these is me being a little church sprog and telling my mom I wanted to be an exorcist when I grew up. She told me "only priests can be exorcists, and only boys can be priests." That was when I started questioning both gender and religion. (Also led to some weird hangups later on but let's save that for another day.) The other one, which I find even more important, was reading The Sandman in middle school. My dad actually didn't want me to read it because he thought Despair could be a bad influence on me...but the person who shaped my identity and actions was Desire. This guy right here, yeah? Changed my perception of reality, they did. They were astounding, both male and female and everything and nothing and I wanted that. Mind, I didn't think it was possible--Desire was an Endless, of course they defied sex, they were a Being and not a person. Only years later did I ever hear of nonbinary genders. So what about y'all?
