I am Charli.
I don't identify as female or male..
I don't really know what I am in terms of labelling.
I guess I'm gender fluid.
But I feel so uncomfortable because there never is an option at school/work/ in general (toilets etc) that I can use.

Is this something we can ever change?
Not only for people like me but for mtf's and ftm's and everyone else..

I find that with toilets or accommodation that I too don;t fit in either. As I feel threatened when I use male facilities or with other males. or with females I find I would offend them or they may feel threatened if I look like a guy in a dress. Though I do feel more confident and secure with other females or using female facilities.
