Re: Nonbinary person waves "hi"

>> Sorry--"normal" was a poor word choice. I really meant "we of the most commonly occurring variety" (Most vocal?) <<

I use "prevailing" a lot. In math, there are many kinds of "average," and "mode" is the value that appears most frequently on a list. This is also sometimes called a "data cluster." If you mapped human sexuality on the XY plane you'd see two huge clusters of "men" and "women" defining the ends of a densely populated spectrum, and smaller clusters of other things such as "agender" and outliers such as "cactus." (Yes, someone really said "My gender is cactus.")

"....and outliers such as "cactus." (Yes, someone really said "My gender is cactus.")"

Makes me wonder what that person's story is.

What he has to say makes sense--to me anyway.

Re: Nonbinary person waves "hi"

It did to me too. Especially given my awareness of personal energy and how if you annoy people, most of them will put out spikes in their aura.

Re: Nonbinary person waves "hi"

I can't pick up on auras so I didn't know about the spikes.

Re: Nonbinary person waves "hi"

Not everyone can, but a lot of otherwise mundane people can sense that much. It's why they describe people as "prickly."

Re: Nonbinary person waves "hi"

Makes sense.
