As a non-binary person, all I can say is, people comfortable with their assigned gender don’t even think about this. So take that as you will.

It took me about twenty years from thinking “yeah I don’t identify with men” to “ahhh I am not cis”. So don’t worry if you don’t have it all figured out yet.

my own gender is not something i think about but when other people bring it up i start to get introspective. The first time some one asked my pronouns instead of assuming he/him made me pause

I'm comfortable being assigned male.

However, I reject the idea that masculinity implies focus on one set of virtues and femininity implies focus on another set. All those distinctions shouldn't exist, and as long as they do exist I think we should all be non-binary.

So I've thought about being non-binary for that reason. So far I haven't. One of my kids has, and my wife and I support them.
