I'm not a linguist at all, but it coincides with the narrative of gender not being suppossed to be self-reported. you get a gender assigned at birth, and your parents and community are supposed to gender you and teach you how to perform masculinity/femininity according to it. in this process, you are never expected to confirm or declare your own gender at all. it's more like a thing others see in you, than a thing you state for others to know
