Profile: Jess


You can call me… Jess

I identify as… a genderqueer grrl with heavy geek tendencies. I also have a button that says “awkward is my gender identity.”

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I like they, them, their, theirs. I’m all about neutrality. An added bonus is watching people struggle over grammatical issues.

I’m attracted to… butch women, femmy guys, genderqueers, trannies, androgynes, hot queers (pretty much all queers are hot… that’s our superpower). I also swoon for other geekatrons.

When people talk about me, I want them to… know that my gender is very important to me and needs to be respected, but it’s also just one part of a larger picture.

I want people to understand… Just because leading a gender-variant life can be hard sometimes, doesn’t mean that you always have to be serious! Humour can sometimes be a great way to improve your situation!
