Profile: Bridget

You can call me… Bridget is good, but otherwise I don’t care much.

I identify as… A gay male, but with some female qualities too. Sorta half and half, I guess. I suppose I also identify as a bit confused about many things. My own gender identity, for one.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … If someone uses “he,” that’s fine and all. If they use “she,” though, I tend to take it as a compliment… Says to me that I’m doing something right. Just makes my day. I’m not really too picky about this one though.

I’m attracted to… Somewhat feminine or androgynous guys, but not always. Sometimes a more “boyish” or “rogue” quality can be really nice too. And also, someone that is friendly and understanding.

When people talk about me, I want them to… realize that what they say can hurt, but at the same time, that I prefer total honesty over anything else. If you’re gonna say something about me, don’t try to cover it up with politeness… Just be blunt, and let me know what you really think.

I want people to understand… that just because I may not fit the usual definition of a male, that doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with me. It doesn’t make me some sort of weirdo. If I’m a bit on the girly side, well, that’s just how I am… It’s not like it hurts anyone, so please don’t attack or laugh at me about it. That type of thing hurts more than most could know.

About Bridget
I’m a bit of a girly-boy, but I guess I kinda like that. The whole idea of androgyny appeals to me, though I don’t really understand it… I wish I did. I’m also a total and complete geek; computers and gaming and anime and Star Trek and everything of that nature. If it’s amazingly geeky, chances are, I’m totally into it! I really love nature and animals. I guess I’m also a bit lazy, but I try not to be. I’m really absentminded, but I do my best to be courteous to everyone I meet. I think if more people did the same, the world really would be a better place.

    Hey fellow-geek. I bet this is the most cliché comment but: wow! You sound exactly like me!
    Apart from the pronoun part because since I’m FtM I get ‘she’ a lot and am usually happy when someone calls me ‘he”.
    But yeah, girly-boys are the coolest and it’s time we asserted our presence in the geek-community.
