Profile: Lily

Lily

You can call me… Lily, Lil, Lilt or Lilybean

I identify as… Female, simple as that. I’m not letting the fact that I was born in a male body get in the way of my choice of style and appearance.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … She, Her. I love the ze/hir stuff, as long as you use it generally, not just for me.

I’m attracted to… Anyone. Not everyone, but anyone. I cannot identify as bisexual because I have a slight weakness for people “bending the binary.” I love anybody who is individual, who demands to be loved because they are the only one of their kind, and if you don’t love them now there is nobody else on earth like them and you have missed them.

When people talk about me, I want them to… love and respect me, my identity, themselves and everybody else in the world. Other than that, I ask nothing of anybody.

I want people to understand… Your neat little boundaries and boxes are useless. Only love can save you now.

About Lily
19-year-old British (trans)girl. Standing on the brink of transition, I’m now at the crazy psychotic phase. I’m an aspiring musician, singer, songwriter, composer, writer, soon-to-be-director… when it comes to anything from gender to art, I love to mix it up and blur lines that probably shouldn’t exist.

    "I’m attracted to… Anyone. Not everyone, but anyone." This! Sometimes it's hard to help people understand the difference (not that it's bad to be attracted to everyone).

    And you're awesome for saying: "Your neat little boundaries and boxes are useless. Only love can save you now."

Be nice. Judgmental comments will be quietly deleted and blacklisted. There's plenty of room for those elsewhere on the web.
