Profile: Vanity Smurfette

You can call me… Vanity Smurfette (or VS.)

I identify as… A unisex activist, founder member of UNISEX on flickr.

I’m mainly a GUY though, like day-to-day. Inside I feel quite feminine. But I deal with it responsibly.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I’m usually referred as “he”. I don’t want to be called “she”. I’d like to come up with a de-gendered third person pronoun…

Let the dream go on…

I’m attracted to… My girlfriend, an asian girl who is both girly and manly sometimes.
I feel that she is the matching/opposite piece.

When people talk about me, I want them to… say I’m just a normal PERSON, talk about what I’m good at etc..

When people interact with me though, I would love them to not make assumptions about my inner gender, I find it very discomforting when people treat me as just a guy (men and women equally), I hate to be categorized.

I want people to understand… I’m on the gender spectrum just like everybody else, and where I am really shouldn’t matter. In fact, being relatively near the middle is a great advantage. I don’t lose out from both sides, I gain from both sides.
