Profile: Ali


You can call me… Ali

I identify as… androgynous, genderqueer, dyke, boi(ish), very queer, anarchafeminist, cunt warrior, pokemon master

As far as third-person pronouns go, … she/her, they, sir/mister…varies by the day.

I’m attracted to… genderfuckery, queerness, people of all genders, genderqueer people, people who like sex, queer radicalism, anarchists, transmen, honesty, feminists, creativity, complicated people, skateboard bros… Strength and intelligence.

When people talk about me, I want them to… not dismiss me. I want them to wonder. And when they talk to me, I want people to tell me what they think and what they want to say instead of what they think i want to hear.

I want people to understand… that ambiguity is a good thing and language is always hard. And that some boundaries should be crossed. And just because something is illegal doesn’t mean it’s evil or bad.

About Ali
i’m a student in chicago. i like street art, skateboarding, classical music, theatre, and dinosaurs. i study language and power and gender. i do a lot of theatre and model united nations and i co-publish a queer(ish) zine called “que(e)ry.”

    Wow, you're pretty darn cool. But then again, I'm also from Chicago and do unhealthy amounts of Model UN. I think you have a great outlook on life. (Was your picture taken in Regenstein?)

    yup…you got it. haven't met too many other mun-ers with sympathetic worldviews (though maybe that's just my school.
