I sent my sister a semi-long email not too long ago, explaining my being non-binary. I told her a longish message was coming, and I think I sent it to the email address she uses the most. This was last week.

I haven’t heard a whisper in response.

This being my sister, that isn’t entirely a surprise. She’s quite a busy person, and sometimes falls off the map for a bit. But with a message like that, more or less coming out, the lack of a response is rather unnerving. Makes me much less comfortable even broaching the subject with the parents.
