So suppose you’re non-binary: you don’t see yourself as necessarily masculine or feminine and exist outside the gender binary of men and women. The thing is, you’re attracted to women.

It sounds … complicated.

The inefficacy of existing linguistic tools to explain just what they’re talking about.
