I've been having troubles with my gender identity for some time. For a long time, I never thought about identifying any other gender then... the one I was born with (I'm AFAB). But ever since last month, I've been feeling slightly uncomfortable with being referred to as a "woman". This made me feel slightly sad too, because, I've always identified myself as a lesbian, and I thought if I ended up identifying another gender than woman, my (and my girlfriend's) lesbian identity would be a lie, and that really stressed me out. As my stress with my identity started getting worse, I started to interact with people who were having the same experiences as me, and then, I found out the term "nonbinary lesbian". At first, it confused me, I'll be honest. How can you be "nonbinary" yet be a lesbian?
Then, it was described to me by a few self identified nonbinary lesbians. They said they don’t identify as a women, consider themselves to be on the more feminine end of the spectrum.They feel comfortable within the lesbian community, identify with femininity, and they are attracted to women and feminine-identified people. I was shocked because this almost PERFECTLY how I felt about my identity. So, what are your guy's opinion on this? Should I start identifying myself as a nonbinary lesbian?
