No one really accepts me irl
I have came out as genderfluid to a handful of people, and their reactions are what keep me from coming out to others. To some, I am just an attention-seeking a****** who can't decide who to be. And no one respects my pronouns (they/them) or my name so that's fun. Honestly, nearly none of this would normally bother me because people's opinions on who I should be kind of go in one ear and out the other, but one of my other friends who understands what's going on with me more than anyone else, always refers to me as She/her despite saying that my pronouns are just as valid as his. And another friend tells me that I don't really count as anything because I am "technically a girl." So these reactions are keeping me from coming out to people like my family, because why would I tell anyone who I am if it would be completely ignored? It sucks, but it's not completely terrible. At least some people online respect what I am, and if that's all the acceptance I'm going to get, then I will take it.
