A coming out

Since I wound up still posting here, somehow? I figure I should let people here know.
Back in November, I came out as female-to-[url=http://neutrois.com/]neutrois[/url] transgendered. This means my gender is neither male nor female nor anywhere in between the two. If you refer to me in the third person, I'd prefer the pronoun "it", or if you absolutely can't bring yourself to say that, then "they/them".
I'm saying this here because (A) Most people here know me as female, so by not saying it I'm implicitly lying, and (B) Bulbagarden is the first place I actually came out as transgendered, back when I was a teenager, but a certain cisgendered person told me I was making it up for attention and bullied me back into the closet (I was younger, more cowardly, and less resilient then than I am now). It's probably for the best, since I didn't know the proper terminology back then and thought I was bigender, which is actually the exact opposite of what I really am.
If all you're going to say is "Why are you telling us this" or "But there's only 2 genders lolol", don't bother commenting.
