Profile: Yo/Idgie/Aerin


You can call me… Yo/Idgie/Aerin

I identify as… A transgender, queer boy with a cunt. A human.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I like the Finnish “hen”, but I still hope for a world where you don’t need any definition of sexes at all.

I’m attracted to… Dandys, drag kings, red hair, tattoos, shaved hair on feminine people, laughter.

When people talk about me, I want them to… See my personality, not the things I have or don’t have between my legs.

I want people to understand… that we can live in a world where love, friendship and freedom are more important than biological sex. I don’t mind if people want to belong to a certain sex, as long as they don’t expect everyone to be like them.

About Yo/Idgie/Aerin
I’m a Swede who’s a Londoner since five months ago. I’m an acting student and a sales assistant in a vintage shop. I enjoy reading, writing, photographing and whiskey. Love to hang out with all kinds of interesting people and dream of performing on a big stage one day…

    Excuse me for splitting hairs, but the Finnish pronoun for he/she is actually “hän” (with an a with two dots, pronounced like a in the word “candy”). It’s great to have neutral pronouns, but Finnish is not perfect: there is some sexism in the lexicon, for example generic masculines.

    A beautiful profile anyway!
