Hehe, I made a rhyme.
Hi, I'm Fox. Pseudonym, not sorry. I chose that name because I am definitely a red fox, my partner tagged me as such before we'd even discussed totem animals and Fox was the name my coparent wanted if we'd borne a male child. After Fox Mulder of the XFiles. Seems so appropo. I've known about mothering.com forum for ages, but never signed up. Signed up now specifically for the queer forum. I've read through some o' the threads, seems like the right place to come out into.
I've been in the parenting forum game for quite a few. My children are 5.5 and 2. I babywear, breast feed, succeed more often than fail at AP and positive parenting.
I am here in the queer parenting forum because I am newly not-cohabitating-with-my-coparent. I finally left a hetero-normative-monogamous relationship about 8 months ago and it couldn't be grander. I am no longer a housewife. I no longer feel obligated to be a nice, pretty, demure, silly girl. Feel grand. Feel like a million and more.
But now I have to figure out who I am on my own. I have always been bisexual. I have always been non cisgendered. I have always been comfortable in my own body and agency, but only recently have learned the language/s associated.
I have so many questions about who I am, who I've been, who I get to be. Most of them are for myself to ask and answer, but some of them I need outside answers, help and advice on.
I would love to meet folks who have experience in newly exploring their queerness with kids around. I'd love to meet folks who have experience in 'coming out' to people who've known them as one way their whole lives. I'd love to meet folks who are comfortable in their body, but not with their binary pronouns. I'd love to meet folks who are poly and parenting. I'd love to meet folks who can help me to be a better ally to myself and those I care about.
Beyond that I like cooking, walking, caring for my kiddoes among lots of other things. I am 27 and going back to school in the fall to finish my undergrad. From New England, born and raised.
Who are you?
