[quote name="pitachip" date="2023-08-19 12:45:45" ] [quote name="ClockworkOwle" date="2023-08-19 12:31:55" ] Doesn't agender also fall under the nonbinary umbrella though? /gq Asked my agender friend after seeing this and they say it does. [/quote] Exactly, it does, that's not what the issue is, the issue is using "nonbinary" in place of "agender". I don't know how many people have experienced this, but I personally have been treated as if I'm only nonbinary when I fluctuate towards agender/genderless. I'm always nonbinary, even if I'm not using they/them. Hope this makes sense /gen. I've literally been told I'm not nonbinary because I'm genderfluid. ----- It's very similar to the treatment I receive as an aro/ace, like I don't belong in the lgbt+ community. Lot's of time using "nonbinary" as a word for "genderless" isn't meant to be malicious (as I'm sure was the case here) but it is harmful regardless. ----- Edit: I also believe it stands out to me more as a neurodivergent writer, anything with language usage is quite noticeable for me where others may miss it. To sum it up better what I'm pointing out here is the implication that nonbinary exclusively means agender/genderless, which has been a prevalent issue for many years. I feel like dev's should've just said Glass/Gloss is agender instead. Sorry I'm sick rn my typing isn't perfect. [/quote] @pitachip I'm having a hard time following what exactly you're saying (could be because I'm sick as well!) but personally, as someone who is agender, the nonbinary label is the umbrella I'm under as a genderless/agender person - to me, nonbinary means anything not on the end of the spectrums, and that could be how staff sees it too! Regardless, I'm sorry you've been made to feel like you don't belong in your own community. ) :

I'm having a hard time following what exactly you're saying (could be because I'm sick as well!) but personally, as someone who is agender, the nonbinary label is the umbrella I'm under as a genderless/agender person - to me, nonbinary means anything not on the end of the spectrums, and that could be how staff sees it too! Regardless, I'm sorry you've been made to feel like you don't belong in your own community. ) :

The best I can sum it up is this: I have seen [i]way[/i] too many people using "nonbinary" as a word exclusively meaning "agender" and erasing the identities of everyone else who falls under it - such as myself. I see it every day, which is why I assumed it to be the case here when I shouldn't have (sorry Undel). I hope this helps you understand where I'm coming from a bit more. Glad to hear it straight from an agender person that you consider it an umbrella term. Honestly glad I said something in the first place too, these responses are bringing comfort. And you don't need to apologize for them but thank you, it does mean a lot [emoji=familiar heart size=1]

I don't understand what the item category drop down is for when we have only genes there - is that a sign for what will come in the future? (sry if it was mentioned somewhere already, I did not check all pages)
