Profile: A.J.

You can call me… A.J.

I identify as… genderqueer but I will always have a strong affiliation with womyn because I have and will always be seen as one. A hopeless romantic, a smart ass and an adventurer.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I find myself avoiding them when I have to refer to myself. Others usually use female ones and I don’t mind, I am a bit honored to be seen as a womyn. If I do get a male pronoun I don’t mind unless they decide they made a mistake and become clearly uncomfortable. I feel as though if I used ‘ze’ and ‘hir’ it would be too difficult for others and even myself.

I’m attracted to… The softness and strength of womyn’s bodies. Intelligence and biting humor. Someone who understands that sometimes I am weak but that I like to be seen a strong.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Love me, hate me, do whatever just do it because of what I have done or said not because they don’t understand me. Know that ignorance and fear is no excuse.

I want people to understand… That it is okay to be confused, even I get confused.

    Wow, are you my doppelgänger? Except for the megaphone and chanting, you’re seriously my mirror image!

    you’ll always be my favorite. :)

    I clearly see my thoughts in what you write, though I wouldn’t put them down if I write my profile. You sound like the suppressed parts of my self (and I do like my expressive parts quite fine). One day, I will develop that fierceness and biting humor.
