|Comment||Thank you for taking the time to respond to my question so extensively. I was not referring specifically to those with less common or accepted identities. I know that some people are protective of their identities when others do not accept them or mistreat them. These traits no more under their control than height or favorite topping for pizza; my question may as well have been about why some put olives on theirs. I guess it's just as random whether someone is they type of person to care a lot about those things. I'm asexual, and nearly agender, so I've never dated someone for others to disapprove of, and I dress and act feminine enough around my family that they don't object too much, the rare times I see them. I'm probably lucky not to feel so invested in gender and sexuality. I can't understand it, and trying to is a waste of time. Happy New Year, -Ayla|
