Furry gamer SonicFox comes out as non-binary, says they will ‘finally explore ‘true identity’
Esports champion SonicFox has come out as non-binary.
They wrote: “Hey ya’ll! I’ve been thinking critically about myself these last couple of months, and my entire life perspective on how I look. The more I reflect on my pass and likes the more this makes sense to me.
“With that being said, I’m coming out as a Non-Binary Man! (He/They) please!”
SonixFox: I’ve always felt ridicules for liking feminine things
In a Twitter thread, they explained: “I’ve always thought of myself as 50% masc and 50% feminine. But I always felt ridiculed and made fun of for liking the more feminine things of life.”
SonicFox, real name Dominique McLean, continued: “When I look at myself in the mirror and visualizing the ideal me, I keep seeing myself with this androgynous appearance. I was too nervous and shy to try women or feminine clothing.
“But I feel I am ready to conquer this shyness and start trying out new clothes and stuff that really feels like -me- ya know?
“I love the monochrome look and have always had a fascination in cardigans shawls long black leather gloves etc. Hell even makeup!
“I’m gonna try on jewelry, Ima try piercings, etc etc, the whole nine yards! I wanna completely overhaul how I generally present myself to the world, and have this new attire that I think feels right. To really express the true -me-.
“I’ll be shopping very soon and may end up looking hella different than I usually do at tournaments, so stay tuned for that!!”

Explaining which pronouns they use, SonicFox explained: “And in time I could see myself dropping the He/Him pronouns.
“I cannot tell if I am genderfluid or not, but I feel identifying as a cis-man just isn’t too right.
“I definitely know I don’t feel like a woman either, but something in between like He/They spectrum I feel fits me most.”
