Profile: Caitlin


You can call me… Caitlin or Cal.

I identify as… A genderqueer biofem polyamourous lesbian gentleman.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … Most people use she/her, but “he” makes me giddy.

I’m attracted to… Androgynous ladybois, butch dykes, and the occasional nerdy quiet boy.

When people talk about me, I want them to… see that I’m not just another girl. That just because I have girl parts doesn’t mean I can’t be a fancy gentleman.

I want people to understand… that gender isn’t just boy/girl, part-based. That gender is fluid, and to respect how people want to be addressed when they are presenting as a different gender. Or as not having a gender.

About Caitlin
I’m 17, a cartoonist, and Olympia, WA is my hometown. I like music that not a lot of people have heard of, and my life’s dream is to backpack through France.

    Can I marry you? Please?


  2. Quince

    I think I love you. This is exactly what I was thinking when I got on. My “best friend” just told me that I’m mentally ill for being queer.


  3. Amy

    Piffle! They’re jealous that they don’t have the je ne sais quoi of us queers. :)

    @Quince: I’m a psychology major, and I know the three criteria for determining mental illness; and you, Sir/Madame/Both/Neither are definitely NOT mentally ill. Be yourself and love yourself, because you’re beautiful!


  5. Bliz

    You’re gorgeous.

    I really really like this. Scratch off the polyamourous lesbian part and put in pansexual scholar, and you’ve got me!
    :D Hurrah for genderqueerness.
    You’re adorable.
