Is it okay if I wear a binder?

    Based on your description, I think you might benefit from researching genderfluidity and other nonbinary identities. You might find some stories or terms that resonate with you. However, you also don't have to identify a certain way or use certain pronouns in order to wear a binder. If binding your chest makes you feel more comfortable with yourself, feel free to do that.

    As far as reactions from transphobic parents, I've never had anyone comment or seem to notice when I'm wearing a binder. In many cases, you might be able to just pass it off as a sports bra. If you're worried about the package arriving, maybe you can ask a friend to receive it for you, or order it from Amazon and have it sent to a locker (just make sure it's a reputable brand).

    Thanks for this info its just the only friend that knows my parents despise and the thing is my sports bras dont usually hide much at all my entire family has a lot of yeah and I just am unsure what to do I asked my sister if she could buy it for me since I dont have a credit card and she said no and I said I'd pay her back but still no like I get it since its expensive and she doesn't want to tick my dad off and I just feel scared and worried that Im going to get kicked out for it and if I went to school I could just wear it to confuse people and be called names that attribute with having no breasts and then a day that Im like I love what I see I just go and Im like hi but usually I wear oversized things to hide it and before I didn't know why and now Im like maybe I just dont feel comfortable with my cisness but I've been told that's wrong and I just. OKAY overall Sports bras don't work on me my parents hate my friends, and I can't since it'd seem questionable. Im too young to get it myself.

    I'm AFAB, so born female, but recently I started identifying as non-binary and came out as that with a couple of friends. I'm still using she/her pronouns (I'm not bothered if people use different pronouns referring to me, I'm just used to the ones I've been always using) and I'm overall female presenting. I want to get a binder to be able to present more neutral or masculine (I have a big chest too). 

    I don't know if that helps you in any way, I thought we have kinda similar stories and it could help you to know there are people that may use a binder that aren't necessarily trans. If you want to talk about it you can reply to this message, I'll make sure to reply :)

    I know I'm a little late to help, but I want you to know that anyone can wear a binder no matter what. You don't need to identify as a certain gender to bind. Just wear what makes you comfortable and good luck. :) I'm 13, so I'm young too and still waiting to order my first binder, so we can experience this together if you'd like! :)
