Profile: Jess


You can call me… Jess

I identify as… genderqueer punk rock boi.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I usually go with “she” for simplicity’s sake. Sometimes I get called “Sir” or asked, “What ARE you?” I don’t identify as male or female — but there’s no pronoun that really defines what I am.

I’m attracted to… genderqueers, butches, and bois.

When people talk about me, I want them to… comment on my awesome mohawk or boots. Not be intimidated because I look like a badass with tattoos. I am a real sweetheart who happens to be into punk. Not all punks are jerks.

I want people to understand… that the gender binary is a system of oppression. That there just isn’t two options of male/female but a rainbow of choices. Don’t be afraid or judge people because they look different — after all we are all human.

(and yes, should i see you on the street, i would compliment you on your mohawk and your boots. in fact, i would probably ask if i could steal your boots. hell, it’s an icebreaker!)

    Hey! Awesome you published my profile. Thanks! My blog is now at Types don’t really matter – it’s what’s on the inside that counts. I have what I am generally attracted to but I am open to anyone. I’ve been known to be smitten by an awesome femme. :)

    Is it just me, or does there seem to be a high number of vegetarians/vegans in this community? It may just be a coincidence, but an interesting one. (I’m a vegan myself)

    (also, I spy a bass guitar. :D )

    Yay! Totally true, not all punks are jerks. Some of us are super progressive and feminists to boot :D
