Bisexual: Sexually attracted to two or more genders.
Polysexual: Sexually attracted to many genders, but not all.

Cisgender: Someone who identifies as the gender that they were assigned as at birth. (ex. matches their birth certificate) Often shortened to cis
Intersex: Someone who has ambiguous genitalia that doesn't fit into our strict dichotomy of uterus or testes. Often forced into surgery to correct their genitals at a very young age, causing psychological and physical harm later in life

Genderqueer: Outside of the gender binary. (**This is not an umbrella term like the post said before I edited it! Do not use this as an umbrella term for nonbinary individuals, simply use 'nonbinary'. Queer is considered a slur and not everyone likes to be associated with the word)

Bigender: Someone who identifies as two separate genders.
Trigender: Someone who identifies as three separate genders.

Amab/Afab: Same as dmab/dmab, except with 'assigned' instead of 'designted'.
Camab/Cafab: Same as previous, except prefixed by 'coercively', to highlight the lack of choice.

as a parent it is your god damn fucking job to look after your children stop treating your children like they are burdens

you signed up to have a child, the child did not sign up to have you as a parent

keep this in mind. do not expect your children to immediately give you back all the things you give them. they are children. love them. cherish them. treat them well.
