Profile: Annika

You can call me… Annika or A.

I identify as… an androgyne genderqueer; non-hetero, gay and lesbian.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I really hate all other languages but Finnish and Estonian. In Swedish, English, German, French, Spanish or some other language with gendered pronouns, I’d like it mixed. But I don’t get too offended when people (always) use the female ones.

I’m attracted to… androgyne people. Not too much (at all) to boys. Can’t imagine myself with a guy nor with “a girly girl.” Actually, I think the answer is “androgyne girls.” Genderwise. Lots of things come on top of that.

When people talk about me, I want them to… avoid using gendered words. This, actually, in general.

I want people to understand… the diversity of gender and stop seeing only two sides.

About Annika
Into International Relations, human rights, feminism, gender studies, climate politics, grassroot activism etc. Into dancing, playing instruments, singing, acting, yoga and capoeira.

    Hooray for Finnish! I’m trying to teach myself, but am making rather limited progress…

    I like how you described what you’re attracted to. I completely agree with not being attracted to boys or “girly girls” XP

    If this is the Annika I know I’ll have a heart attack. XD

    You might like Indonesian…there are no genders, everyone is an “it” and a “they”. Which is funny when Indonesians like my ex learn English and and other similar languages and they call people the wrong pronouns because they cannot get used to referring to anyone by gender. ;)
