it's like everyone sees me as a woman, the only difference being that they have to be careful with what they refer to me as

Congratulations, now you understand why people think nonbinary people are insufferable. Because that's exactly the case. You're a woman that everyone has to walk on eggshells around. Sorry you're not happy that your "get out of the binary free" card doesn't actually work that way.

we are not all the same, and we're not all different.

Yeah, almost like you're human beings! Do these people really think that "women" and "men" are monoliths and that everyone that is a woman is exactly the same? How is this happening? How are people so stupid?

We could've all realized that you can act, dress, and have certain interests while still being a man or woman. That a woman with short hair is still a woman, and a man who enjoys knitting is still a man. Because gender roles and stereotypes are arbitrary, restrictive, meaningless, and change over time, culture, and person to person. We could have made more room for both sexes to be themselves without denying biology or erasing gays and lesbians. But nooooo, the they/thems had to turn it into a whole thing, setting us all back 50 years.
