Profile: Alix


You can call me… Alix, Al

I identify as… genderqueer, activist, transfag/dyke, pancurious, lover, kinky, queer, content, atheist, genderfucked.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … male, for the most part, though I’m okay with gender-neutral. Just please, stop calling me “she.” I really like the intersection between wearing a dress and still being “him” or “he” — to say that what I’m wearing has no impact on my actual gender. If you really can’t figure it out, just “Alix” is fine.

I’m attracted to… androgyny, humour, creativity, my lover. Pretty boys and handsome girls, people who fall in between. Attractive people. Anyone who can make me think about things in a way that I haven’t before, or question my own assumptions.

When people talk about me, I want them to… realize that I’m not confused, mentally ill, suffering from a medical condition, or otherwise disabled. Stop pitying me; everything over here is completely fine. Other than that, I want them to talk about how completely awesome I am. Because I am.

I want people to understand… that I am more than capable of making my own decisions about my own body without their input. That gender is fluid. That I’m happy.

    I love what you said about wearing a dress and still being called he. I feel that. Not in spoken pronouns, but in the body language and looks between us when I’m with someone who gets it too.

    Oh well, you’re very cute and I like the way you think.^^
