Profile: Quinn

You can call me… Quinn

I identify as… A genderqueer, androgynous, queer, polyamorous, kinky, Pagan (creaky, aging) punk.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … It depends on how I feel that day. I like it when I get called “sir” but I generally don’t mind being called “ma’am,” and I don’t care whether my friends call me “she” or “he.” On the other hand, I also like it when people mix pronouns when referring to me. “Ze/hir” and so forth sound awkward to me when used in speech, although of course I use them for people who ask to be referred to by same.

I’m attracted to… Bois, queer punk boys, leather faggots, Amazonian dykes, gentleman butches, androgynes and genderqueer individuals of all kinds, dominant alpha types, geeks and nerds, people with ironic, dark, wicked senses of humor.

When people talk about me, I want them to… understand that wearing a skirt from time to time doesn’t make me Little Miss Femme. Part of being genderqueer, for me, is mixing things up when I feel like it.

I want people to understand… that androgyny can be dynamic, exciting and provocative without meaning you’re a “fence sitter,” and if it scares and confuses people, that’s their issue.
