I feel like that about us having the autonomy to express ourselves. I'm non-binary but I don't really talk about it that much. I don't feel like people really are there yet for understanding it, which I don't mind, but I also acknowledge the way people see me as a woman. And because I'm seen as a woman, a cis woman or binary presenting, people are going to hold me up to those same standards that women are held up to.RODRIGUEZ: Which you're saying you shouldn't be, right?MOORE: Which I'm saying women should not be.In December 2018, Moore came out as polyamorous.
