Profile: Renée


You can call me… Renée.

I identify as… Recently as queer, before that as lesbian, and before I began grade school and had to give up superman boy’s briefs I was Ken, just one of the boys.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I don’t really have a preference… before third grade I would have preferred masculine pronouns, but these days I mostly elicit female ones. It makes no difference to me.

I’m attracted to… Queerness. I love femmes who are strong, confident, and outgoing. I adore butch/androgynes who are soft-spoken, sensitive, and gentle. Trans-men, femme men, feminine women with masculine qualities, androgynous women with feminine qualities. Contradiction makes me wet. Witty humour. Intelligence.

When people talk about me, I want them to… refrain from shifting nervously in their seats.

I want people to understand… there is no ‘natural’ sexuality. What is between your legs shouldn’t set the limits for what you feel in your heart.

    Jessica replied:

    me, too. Do you ever play 12 string?


    Renee replied:

    Thank you both, that means a lot.

    Unfortunately I hardly play the 6-string, me and my friend were just having fun with a camera and I picked up my mostly un-used guitar, and it looked cool. I stuck with guitar for a solid year and a half and then slowly got away from it, regretfully :-(


    Jessica replied:

    When I turned 50, I decided to follow my sister’s example. She decided that it was unacceptable for her to speak just one language, so she learned to be fluent in Spanish. I decided that it was unacceptable for me not to play an instrument, at least well enough for my own amusement, so I got a guitar (actually two of hem) and started playing (again). I took lessons as child, but that was a long time. Real music heals the soul.
