Profile: Chris


You can call me… Chris

I identify as… a gynosexual genderqueer. I often gender present as male but I identify as female.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I think people should use whatever they are comfortable with by way of pronouns. I believe there should exist an expansive space between trendy circumlocutions and stodgy stereotypes.

I’m attracted to… the smell of a woman covered in sweat; that gender-dyke cruising me from across the room; a sassy Drag King who curls his lip like Elvis; joyful smiles; playful laughs; and MacPhisto.

When people talk about me, I want them to… remark on my determination, my loyalty, my intelligence, and my sense of humor. I want my sex and gender to be noticed like an after-thought, as though it were something floating at the edges of their vision, blurred and indistinct.

I want people to understand… that love, the shiny raindrops that descend from the Divine Archimedean point, is a virtue and habit of the soul.

    I identified with a lot of this profile :D Especially the part about gender being "noticed like an after-thought, as though it were something floating at the edges of their vision, blurred and indistinct."

    You seem like a fascinating person. Truly unique and full of contradictions. I bet you would be an amazing person to spend an afternoon with!
