Profile: Kat


You can call me… Kat, usually.

I identify as… queer in all senses of the word — sexuality, gender, and being an oddball.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I think they’re a nice idea, but they just confuse the average not-well-versed-in-genderfuckery human and I don’t like having to constantly explain things. I don’t really care what pronouns you throw at me, they’re probably all applicable. I do like being called “sir,” though.

I’m attracted to… other androgynous queers. People who can make me laugh. Self-confidence. Women with interesting tattoos and/or piercings. Women wearing men’s clothes. Sharp dressers in general. David Bowie circa “Low”.

When people talk about me, I want them to… realize that whatever I’m presenting as on a particular day, it’s not for you. Life is short and I’m here to enjoy myself as much as possible, so I don’t have time to pander to societal bullshit.

I want people to understand… that most of the time I don’t really mind being mistaken for a fifteen-year-old boy.

    I always get mistaken for a 15 year old boy as well. I definitely don’t mind it.

    You’re extremely attractive, also. Just saying.

    you’re gorgeous.

    It’s not to often that someone makes both my brain and my body jump up in delighted excitement. You, in your sexy amazingness, succeeded.

    You are ridiculously attractive.

    Honesty and plaid ftw.
    Also, I have hairs like yours, except that it’s not ruffled. I must try this sometime.


  6. Jack

    You are a cutie.

    You are awesome! I love the way you define yourself – how your gender expression is not for anyone but yourself – Yesss! I’m in Syracuse sometimes; perhaps I’ll see you around c:

    I agree so much with your last statement – I get the same reactions. It bothers people around me more that it bothers me.
