I’ve stopped trying to appear to be either normal or female. The less I try to fake being something I’m not, the more I seem to thrive. Being a neuroatypical nonbinary person is harder than being a “normal white female”, but not internally. I cannot even imagine how much added pressure is there for someone who is autistic and black.
