Profile: Alex


You can call me… Alex.

I identify as… a straight guy, with some assembly required… Transgender FTM.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … masculine. He/His/Him. Thankfully most friends have picked up on it. (Mom doesn’t know and Dad won’t do it.) If you mess up, it’s cool…just don’t make a big deal out of it.

I’m attracted to… MY GIRLFRIEND! She is THE most amazing, beautiful, AND supportive person! She has really helped me a lot with starting my transition (she even let me use her name to register my Visa gift card that I was going to use to get my binder… AND let me ship it there… She is ALSO going to order my packer for me!) Another thing: she refers to me as her boyfriend and only a few people know that I’m actually trans!

When people talk about me, I want them to… Not ONLY talk about me being trans. To me, it’s not that big of a deal. Yes it’s a big part of my life right now, but that’s because I’m starting my transition. I don’t just want to be “‘That transguy…Alex” for the rest of my life.

I want people to understand… that this is who I am. It’s NOT an impulse decision. I’ve wanted to be a guy for as long as I can remember. I may still be kinda young but I know this is what I want. Also, it’s not other people’s jobs to inform others about me being trans. I should have the decision of who knows…and who doesn’t.

About Alex
I asked my girlfriend what to put here; she said:
“hi, im alex. im fucking amazing. thats all you really need to know.”

My version:

I have THE most amazing girlfriend.
I CAN’T WAIT to start T and physically become the guy I truly am.

    I don’t know how to say this without sounding strange, but I really love your enthusiasm and it’s making me want to slap myself for thinking that being genderqueer is something to be angsty about. :)

    Adorable couple. :)
