Profile: Beth

You can call me… Beth.

I identify as… Queer. Sometimes I’d go as far to tell you I’m an asexual genderqueer bio-female, but other days I’d just be who I am and let you make what you want of it.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … Female ones are fine.

I’m attracted to… Androgynous males, feminine boys that don’t act camp, girls who look like boys who look like girls. Intelligence attracts me, as does a good sense of humour and an open mind. I like girls with short hair and boys with long hair, but above all I’m attracted to what’s on the inside over what’s on the outside.

I’m not sexually attracted to anyone, and I’m happy with that. People find that hard to accept, especially when I tell them I do love making out and swoon over physical beauty. I don’t really expect you to understand, because I’m not totally sure about things myself.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Realise that I like hanging out with boys because ironically, I feel much less pressured to look a certain way around them.

Not talk about what I ‘should’ do, but wonder what I ‘want’ to do.

I want people to understand… That blurring the lines is fine, and the grey area is an interesting place to be.

  1. Hello to you.

    Wow, just wow, it’s if I did write that whole thing.
    Take care, Beth.

    “girls who look like boys who look like girls”
    I’ve been saying that for ages. I thought no-one else really understood what I meant, but clearly you do!


  3. Anonymous

    Wow, I sound lots like you as well.

    Wow–like the first comment, only I relate exactly from the biologically male side–a mirror image! You rock!

    OK, who’s been cloning me again?

    It’s nice to see that you are not alone in your various peculiarities. Sometimes.

    Hey, I just saw that this had been posted, awesome! If anyone’s interested, I write a blog on asexuality at: Comment me on there if you want to get in touch!

    Also, I’ll add that I actually wrote this a couple of months ago, so it’s odd to read as I’d forgotten exactly what I wrote – it’s like reading a description of myself by someone else! Still totally true though.
