Profile: Gretel


You can call me… Gretel

I identify as… a bro, a dyke, a former straight girl, hippie, hipster, girl if anything, NEVER a woman, never a femme.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I push the limits of how far feminine ones can go.

I’m attracted to… Tiny little dykes like myself. Sometimes transguys. Androgyny is the best.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Not be scared of me. At least talk about how cool I can be.

I want people to understand… privilege is still privilege whether you think you have it or not.
Tutus are not just for ballerinas.

    In your photo, you kind of look like Emile Hirsch. (Or at least I think you do.)
    And tutus are most definitely not just for ballerinas.

    "As far as third-person pronouns go, … I push the limits of how far feminine ones can go." — sometimes I think I should try to do this, although female pronouns rub me the wrong way. It is fun to see the confusion on stranger's faces when an old acquaintance calls me she; it's also nice to queer people's minds ("You don't look like a she." "I could so be a she with my appearance, if I wanted to!").

    Hooray for tiny bros! I love this profile.

    I live in them too! There're few things better than a Z tan.
