a trans singlet friend who hadnt heard of plurality at *all* (like not even as MPD or in movies or anything) before i came out to them maybe like a couple weeks ago is actually like... thinking and coming to their own conclusions about how plurality and gender intersect and how it 'completely undermines a lot of the assmptions that people have about biology being straight forwardly linked to identity' and relating my experiences with dysphoria about fronting to their experiences with nb dysphoria and its like?? yes good?? very validating and also very encouraging in terms of being more openly plural and actually educating people and stuff


i think itll be a long time before we can come out casually to any old person as soon as it comes up but its a relief that experiences have been positive so far
something that really helped me both in this instance and the other is that the people i talked to both found ways to like, relate to the problems i was having for reasons other than plurality. its affirming to have someone both acknowledge that your experience is unique but also provide a bridge to a shared experience so i dont feel like im totally alienated and unreachable because i have this fundamentally different identity thing underpinning my life
