LGBTQIA+ (thoughts…)

I am absolutely 110% in support of all persons within the LGBTQIA+ community, without a doubt. I just noticed something the other day one of my friends posted on Facebook. They consider themselves non-binary transgender. They prefer the pronouns They, Them, Their. I guess they consider themselves to be masculine non-binary transgender. For some reason, this kind of -ish doesn’t make sense to me..

I know there are so many genders that absolutely exist. I am not saying they don’t. I noticed this friend posted a picture of them and the caption stated “I took apart, transported and assembled this children’s playset. I am now either your new dad or your new husband. I don’t make the rules.” For some reason this hit me in an odd way, and maybe someone can explain it to me.

If someone considers themselves to be non-binary trans, can they also be masculine? This person continues to be offended when other misuse pronouns (completely understandable), however, they ALWAYS tend to ridicule and shame cis-hetero individuals. If you are striving for a world of equality of all sorts, should you truly be calling out ALL cis-het persons? I feel like that goes against everything. I understand that some people clearly purposefully misgender trans persons, which makes me want to punch them in the face, but for those who continuously work on it and accidentally slip up, give them a break. They validate you as a HUMAN BEING. You shouldn’t be ridiculing them or shaming them for this mistake. Instead, take it and using as a teaching tool. Help them out if they would like it/need the assistance or teaching.

This kind of got a little out of hand, but I just needed to put this out there.

If anyone has some answers regarding my above question:

Can a non-binary trans person consider themselves to masculine?

Please inform me.
