Profile: Sam


Sam

You can call me… Sam

I identify as… a lesbian-identified bisexual. a (wo)man. a “girl” who has “boy” days… often. QUEER-ish.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … i couldn’t care less. i usually get hit with the “she,” but on the rare occasions when i catch a wayward “he”… it doesn’t really surprise me. i mean…why not?

I’m attracted to… butchy girls. future wnba stars. pantheism. men over 6 feet tall. Liars and Frauds, or anyone who can tell a story and get away with it. other foster faces.

When people talk about me, I want them to… look me in the eye. mean what they say. realize that just because i’m masculine doesn’t mean i’m a dyke. just because i’m gay doesn’t mean i’m a lesbian…

I want people to understand… and just because im not a boy, that doesn’t necessarily mean i’m a girl either. that i wouldn’t give up my black (wo)manhood for the world. and that their son or daughter could get it. bisexuality is not a disease.

About Sam
I will be 19 years next week. My wife just left me, but i wear her ring everyday. I work as an advisor to incoming freshman and transfer students at my university, and although they don’t understand me, they love me just the same. & so should everyone. Foster care fosters creativity, and sometimes, even love. Biracial is beautiful.

Recommendation: Keen Shoes


Phoenix recommends…

Keen Shoes
Shoes and Accessories

I like Keen shoes because they have a lot of androgynous styles in all sizes. Some shoes run wider than average, but they don’t offer wide sizes.

Feel free to check them out! And please share any shoe brands you know who offer non-gendered shoes – bonus if they come in wide sizes!

Unicorns.


Someone wrote…

You know what the world needs? More people who think someone’s interest in unicorns is more important than their gender.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

As far as third-person pronouns go, … it makes me so very happy when I am referred to in feminine terms… she, her, etc.

I’m attracted to… strong and feminist women, woman athletes, woman folk/rock musicians

When people talk about me, I want them to… be respectful of where I am in my life and gender journey, and to not be judgmental of me. I will do the same for them.

Question: Invalidating one’s Gender identity?


Taylor Trash asks…

I am a bio fem who identifies as third gender (not male, not female) and lives a very GQ life. My partner is a self-professed heterosexual male. The subject has come up multiple times: does calling himself heterosexual invalidate my gender identity?

Please post your response in the comments below.

Profile: Stephanie


Stephanie

You can call me… Stephanie

I identify as… A pangender pansexual.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I don’t really care :)

I’m attracted to… People that can be comfortable with the fact that I tend to not even have a gender. Someone that can see past the fact that a person is more than what’s in their pants.

When people talk about me, I want them to… not put my gender or sexuality in front of WHO I AM.

I want people to understand… that I am not confused, as young as I am, 17. Especially my mom. :/

About Stephanie
Stephanie, 17, I like to blog, I’m still in school. I love to laugh and write, and educate others about what I stand for.

Must be all those banks I robbed.


Someone wrote…

I was going to the gym on campus, and the guy at the desk swiping IDs took and held mine, saying “I can’t let you in.”

I thought he was joking, so I replied, “Must be all those banks I robbed.”

Then he said to his boss, “He’s trying to use this girl’s ID.”

The boss looked like he wanted to kick the guy in the face, swiped my card for me and told him to just ask me first.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Question: What’s a “boidyke”?


Shonne Elijah asks…

I’ve seen the term “boifriend” and “boidyke” several times and I was just wondering is “boi” pronounced differently than “boy”? And also, what is the definition (or general idea) of a “boidyke”? I’m just an ignorant kid that wants to know, no offense intended. Thanks.

Please post your response in the comments below.
