Profile: Em


You can call me… Em

I identify as… a human being, minus a gender. I am not male, I am not female. I’m neither, yet not both. I would rather have a flat chest and more muscle, but my vagina can stay.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … Anything! Go for it. Surprise me. Pronouns are silly to get hung up over, in my opinion. Call me as you see it.

I’m attracted to… Other non-gendered people. Preferably those with female nether-regions, but only for sexual reasons. I’m more attracted to humor and compassion.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Relax. I am not easily offended. If you think of me as male, go for it. Female? Sure. I know how I’m comfortable, and how other people see me isn’t hugely important. Also, I like when people talk to me and no longer feel like they need to fit a stereotype. Comfort in your own skin. That’s what I’m here for.

I want people to understand… gender is all in our heads. You don’t have to be what they say you should be. Appear how you want. Do it. I dare you.

About Em
I like to swim and read and collect leaves. I am oh so happily taken, and I love me some chocolate ice cream on a rainy day.

    We need more people like you: people who challenge us to be ourselves instead of another mannequin from American Eagle.

    It is awesome how laid-back you seem.

    “I would rather have a flat chest and more muscle, but my vagina can stay.”
    That is something that I’ve been thinking, too!

    I second that motion–way to be!

    Em and Sam- That’s how I feel about my body too.

    Chocolate ice cream sounds good too.

    I wonder if we might be the same person!

    I thank you for your post. And to all the others who commented. We are non-gendered kindreds it seems.
