  1. (Disclaimer: I am not out to my family because they are against anything LGBTQ related) So it was a normal family dinner with me and my family sitting down to some dang good soup I'd slaved over today. The topic of conversation? My wedding. Personally, I'd like to get married someday, so I was joking with my brother that because he wasn't being nice to me that he was no longer invited. Then, suddenly, out of the blue, my father chimes in with: "You can't invite any nonbinary people". I'm silent out of shock (Because how does he even know that word!?!?!?) The rest of my family are silent, but soon start asking questions. Turns out, he'd seen on the news today that Jonathan Van Ness from Queer Eye came out as nonbinary. I probably should have found it hurtful, or have been scared, but to be honest, I just laughed. Even if it was an inappropriate moment to do so. Because he said that to me, who identifies as a nonbinary gender. Who would be the one of the two people that the wedding is all about. God, if he knew. 😅 Guess I'm not allowed to be invited to my own wedding anymore!
  2. My brother just told me he thinks he may be transgender (he is still using He/Him pronouns). I love my brother more than anyone in the world, he is my best friend, and I'd do anything for him. I consider myself to be very open minded and I absolutely believe in trans rights and supporting and loving trans people. I've known and been friends with trans people over the years and I've never had any problem. But I'm struggling with my brother coming out. We were raised very religiously and with strong gender roles and so the family dynamic growing up was one in which he got to run and play and do anything he wants while my sister and I stayed behind to help clean or learn how to cook. My entire family has since realized the flaws in this system and we've turned away from it but I'm still having trouble. I spent so many years being jealous of how care free he could be, while I had to worry about changing his diapers. Being raised to be a caretaker is intrinsic to my experience as a woman, and how I relate to the other women in my life. How do I get over this and wholeheartedly accept my new sister?
