Well, today is #NationalComingOutDay and guess what, I have news. I've been thinking about how I move through the world and what it means for me, and the results are in: I'm non-binary. My pronouns are he/they.

I still consider myself a 'guy', mostly, but I'm not completely male. One term I've found is 'demimasc' but none of these terms are necessarily the best fit. I still present mostly male, but then I might end up acting or dressing or sounding more femme on a given occasion.

Alongside the gender stuff, I've also come to the conclusion I'm aromantic. Thus I have little to no romantic attraction - I don't get crushes, and I'm not big on dating (though for the right partner, I might push myself).

Nonetheless, I do have sexual attraction and am healthy in everything to that regard (allosexual); that orients itself toward feminine-presenting people - not just cis women, then, but also trans women and even some very femme enbies and fellas.

I really have to thank Mark, among others, for guidance and inspiration on various aspects of queer identity and non-binary identification in particular. Cheers!

Thanks for confirming, too bad about the official sites. :/

Oh hey, I can see comments here again! It's been very off and on. For example, right now I can't see any of the comments on Mark's review posts on his sites (which is really frustrating, as the comments are half the enjoyment there).

If any admins or others familiar with the system here have any hints on how to resolve this more reliably, I'd appreciate it.

Oh good, comments are back - for the last week or so these were missing for me.

In actual news, Mark was recently on a literary podcast, the discussion was amazing: https://www.audacy.com/podcasts/its-lit-unabridge...

A surprise, to be sure, but a welcome one.

Yeah, kinda glad I skipped it (I was busy with a soccer match). Will have to see what lessons the Academy learns from the fallout, if any.

Lots of talk about changes to her power set - I'm fine with it, it's not the powers themselves but how she deals with them and where they take her. And all of that appears to be pretty faithful, from what I saw here.
