You can call me… Bri, Ashton, Ash, Ashley if you happen to be my parents
I identify as… A queer, genderqueer XX-chromosomed boy drifting somewhere in the transgender spectrum.
As far as third-person pronouns go, … I prefer he or they, for reasons I’m still trying to understand.
I’m attracted to… Men in make-up, punks, curvy femmes, cute butches, intelligent discussions, flamboyant bois, Shane McCutcheon, artists, musicians, activists, dreamers, astrophysics fanatics, adorable smiles, people who smash “masculine” and “feminine” to bits with their everyday appearance. But most of all, an adventurous open mind.
When people talk about me, I want them to… be completely unable to describe me in well-worn stereotypes, so that they can only find words to talk about who I actually am.
I want people to understand… that there is no genetic coding in the Y chromosome which prevents the wearing of skirts. Gender expression is ridiculously diverse, colorful, complex, and fulfilling in anyone who is allowed to explore, so we need to be crafting a safe and open society in which individuals can realize their own gender identity.
Ash is 16, and has identified as L, G, and B at certain points in his life, and currently goes with T and Q. Who knows what letters may appear next?
He firmly wants to transition to male, and then play around with gender all he wants, just to make sure everyone knows he’s still plenty queer. Plus he loves ballet flats and nail polish too much.
