Profile: Matt/Sarah

You can call me… Matt, Sarah

I identify as… a female-bodied human being who sometimes feels male, sometimes genderless, sometimes just doesn’t care, but most-always feels that a more androgynous (at the very least) or male body would be more comfortable.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I like to avoid them. “She” is tolerable because it’s what pretty much everyone knows me by since I’ve only really talked about my feelings on my gender with one person… I’m flattered when “he/his/him” are used, but that only happens with complete strangers.

I’m attracted to… My girlfriend.

When people talk about me, I want them to… try not to make assumptions about me despite how I may look or who I may be dating, and avoid using the term “lesbian.”

I want people to understand… that some people aren’t happy with their born gender, not everyone fits a label, and a lot of people don’t appreciate the labels they are given.

About Matt/Sarah
I’m a student at the moment, hoping to go to a good college to work on becoming an illustrator. I started questioning my own gender about a year and a half ago, so this is still new and a bit difficult to talk about because I’ve only opened up to my girlfriend. No one else who knows me is aware of my feelings, hence my desire for some anonymity.

    That just sounds SO familiar… Apart from the "who are you attracted to", it could've been my own profile.
