I just recently came to the realization that I am genderqueer, and I tried binding my chest just to see how it felt. (It felt amazing, by the way). But I was wondering if there is a "right way" to do it, or if anyone has any advice on how to do it. Mine was kind of make-shift and would not be appropriate to wear outside or anything, because it would probably fall apart. I also just wanted to shout for joy that I discovered this about myself! I have identified as a lesbian for a few years, and I still consider that to be a part of my identity, but I don't consider myself completely 100% female. I am somewhere on the gender spectrum between the two primary genders, though I am still closer to female than male. But even so, the chest binding was a liberating experience for me! Oh, and I was wondering how well genderqueers are accepted by the LGBT community, especially the gay and lesbian part of the community. I know I kind of rambled, but this is all so new and exciting for me. This is so much better than when I figured out I was gay, or should I say queer now? Hmmm... Anyway, I guess that's because I am already comfortable with being different. I already went through that scary part of insecurity and doubt, and now I've discovered yet another aspect of myself. Ok, I'll stop talking now. :)
