You can call me… Jamie
I identify as… a Polish FTM transman
As far as third-person pronouns go, … I prefer male pronouns–I still get warm and fuzzy inside every time I’m addressed as “sir.” So as far as I’m concerned, gender on, folks.
Co-opted third person plurals like “they” and “them” seem like a means without an end… Subverting gender markers, yes, but within the same linguistic structure? Doesn’t seem to call enough attention as politics.
Gender-neutrals would be great — even I’d hop on board — if only everyone was familiar… and remembered… and pronounced them correctly.
I miss optimism.
I’m attracted to… my fiancé.
When people talk about me, I want them to… give me credit when it’s due, despite the myriad of reasons one can find to deny it.
I want people to understand… that trans/gender/queer theories have still a long way to go in terms of acknowledging the breadth of subjectivities under their purview. Let’s all take a step back…
Consciously burying myself in the feminist-queer-gender-trans academies. With any luck in a few years I’ll have all my degrees and enough money to make ends meet… and maybe I’ll have enacted change on the way.
