#atinylife non-binary

Recently I tweeted this:

‘Love and accept that a non-binary child will be just as annoying as a binary one.’

My non-binary 10 year old was unimpressed. ‘Rude!’ They said, with that American head waggle.

So I tried to explain.

‘Love and Accept’

Of course, this comes first. It’s the most important part.

‘That a non-binary child’

There are people who think non-binary doesn’t relate to real people, and Non Binaryespecially not children. I am keen to be unfollowed by these people on Twitter.

‘Will be just as annoying as a binary one.’

  1.    I didn’t create this in my kid.     It’s their identity, not my             choice.
  2.    I’m not the sort of parent             who worships her kids –             they’re annoying.  All kids           are lovely.  And annoying.
  3.    Being non-binary does not         create a saint child of grace         and dignity. I know … I was         disappointed too!
