Profile: Quinn


You can call me… Quinn

I identify as… a human being. I don’t actually ‘identify’ as much of anything. I have female biological bits and I always wear skirts, but my brain’s mental processes are a lot more traditionally masculine.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I use ‘she’ and ‘her’. I wouldn’t necessarily be offended if people used male pronouns with me, but I think it’s a bit silly.

I’m attracted to… intelligent, funny women, mostly. I’ve been attracted to a few guys, but it’s not typical. A witty, bookish, geeky woman will get a whole lot of attention from me.

When people talk about me, I want them to… see me as a human being, and not as a stereotype. I’m female, I’m in love with a woman, but that does not mean that I do this or that. I don’t want to be thought of as a woman or a man, I just want to be Quinn.

I want people to understand… that it doesn’t matter what bits people have. People should be seen as humans, not as males or females, because honestly, there really is no inherent difference. I hope that one day people will stop seeing things as black and white and start seeing the grey areas.

About Quinn
Hi! I’m Quinn. I’m a writer, a lover, a reader, and a dreamer among other things. I love talking to people about anything and everything, and discussing gender theory. One day, I hope to be able to help people work through their gender and sexuality as a friend.
