I look like a cisgendered person though. It's awkward because my family is so judgmental.
Had an Awkward experience recently. My family and I went to a karaoke place. At the place there was a transgender woman. My uncle and a few others cracked jokes about her looking like a man.
I tried to defend her. I felt so awkward. No one in my family knows about my gender confusion. Every time I dressed "manly" in the past they ask me really awkward questions about it. So I didn't really stick up for the person. I only reminded them that she was a she and in her mind she's a woman.
Not really ready to be out. I will probably never tell my family about being agender. They won't get it anyways. I will die in the closet probably or maybe will hide until I move out.

I absolutely get where this is coming from. I mean, I still live with my family, and I know they'd never be okay with me coming out as genderqueer or gender fluid. I know that I'll never be able to express my feminine self around them. And yeah, that really sucks, I'm not gonna lie, but at this point, I don't know what I can do about it unless I can get a job that will support me moving out. And even then, I wouldn't be able to tell my parents that their little boy grew up to be a girl sometimes. My only options are to stay in the closet or cut ties with my family, and neither is something I'm comfortable with. I wish I had advice for you on this, but I only have empathy, and for that, I am sorry.

Sometimes empathy is enough :). Yeah I'm in same boat even if I move out I'd have to cut ties.

They will come around.. most of them anyway. They did with me and I come from a long line of rednecks.
