.@CollinsDict@twitter.com have defined non-binary as “relating to a gender or sexual identity that does not conform to the binary categories of male or female, heterosexual or homosexual”
#Nonbinary folks, does "non-binary" describe your sexual orientation?
@cassolotl the sexuality part is new to me
@noiob Do you mean the sexuality part of the definition is a new idea for you, or do you mean that your sexuality is newly nonbinary? 🤔
@cassolotl the party of the definition
@noiob In that case, yeah, same! I've heard that queer can be both gender and sexual orientation, but not nonbinary!
@cassolotl That's... weird. I'm not personally opposed to people saying they have a nonbinary sexual orientation but I wouldn't know what they meant by it at first blush. To me it's exclusively about gender 🤔 wonder who they consulted when writing this definition, because it kind of feels like they didn't consult -us- lol.
@cassolotl Err, being nonbinary EFFECTS my orientation for sure, but.. no, the word bi still covers its nuance
@cassolotl my gender is nonbinary but my sexuality is ace, so... no, not even a little
@cassolotl I know bi erasure and ace erasure are a thing but "the sexuality binary" isn't a thing I've ever encountered anywhere
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
