re: Why gatekeeping is abusive
I would not have been able to come to terms with being non-binary, if such an inclusive space had not been afforded to me. In fact, if I had remained in truscum spaces, like I used to be in 2-3 years ago, I would have never even considered being nonbinary.
Talking to nonbinary folks, who have both figured out their gender or are still exploring were what helped me realize my own nonbinary identity.
So yeah, I see no positives from gatekeeping a vulnerable space, outside of filtering out fascists, of course.
