Thank you for your voice, Elliot. I think my 14 year old trans nonbinary teen would identify with A LOT of what you're saying here, especially the part about using "they/them" pronouns (for nearly 4 years now) and people still not getting it... it ends up making them feel so weird. Not because they question who they are so much as they question why others don't get it. The struggle is real. And yes, it sounds like genderfluid is the spot-on label for your identity!
