    I'd ask an African child but they are too involved in struggling to stay alive whilst this moron is struggling to pinpoint exactly what he/she/it is.

    transgender people identify as either female or male (binary) whilst non-binary do not identify as either.

    I think that non-binary people don't get nearly as much respect as they should. A lot of cisgender people say that non-binary people are just trying to be edgy or whatever, but that's not the case. You wouldn't give yourself an identity that no one respects just to seem cool. There's no way you'd put yourself through that. I think that more people would identify as non-binary if there was more education about it, our society is very fast to stick someone in a box of either 'male' or 'female'.

    The reason for that would be that identifying outside the boxes would make you be identifying as something impossible in a biological sense, which can lead people to the conclusion that people doing that are a bit... erm... mentally troubled?

    I four non-binary friends, and they are all awesome friendly people. They don't bite and are really forgiving when you accidentally mess up the pronouns. Non binary people will have a preference, e.g. prefer they/them in stead of he/she.

    Don't have a sexual attraction to anyone, Asexual refers to someones sexuality, transgender is related to gender

    I don't really have one. I would judge each person as an individual.

    No opinion at all. I would find it annoying if they made their identity a continuous talking point.

    I personally don't go on about my orientation in general conversations and I expect others to do the same with their orientation or gender identity.

    Not everyone is biologically male or female, intersex people exist...

    I think if people see themselves as non-binary, that's fine, but one thing I do object to is taking offence from being mis-pronouned (if it's obviously not malicious) - say if someone you don't really know, such as a receptionist or bus driver or waiter, calls you 'he' and you prefer otherwise. It's far-fetched that we should abandon he and she as a society just in case the person you're referring to prefers otherwise.

    I'm also curious as to how countries with masculine/feminine-based language deals with non-binary - every time you use an adjective to refer to someone, you have to use the masculine or feminine form, there isn't really a 'neutral' version like we can get away with 'they'.

    Are you implying we should check our privilege? What a moronic arguement to make.

    That's not what non-binary people identify as though, is it?
