Profile: Bee/Ryan


Close-up of an androgynous white person's face. Their eyes are blue and they have short brown hair. They are looking at the camera with a half-smile.

You can call me… Bee or Ryan

I identify as… a genderqueer/genderfuck/(pre-T) tranny.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … Depends. If I’m not binding/not in public you can call me whatever you want. In public its ‘ze/zer’ or just ‘they’.

I’m attracted to… Good personalities, life experience, humor, bright eyes and tattoos. Butch and femme. Tall and short. Always awesome.

A love of comic books and Megaman is always nice.

When people talk about me, I want them to… be honest. That doesn’t mean tell them my life story, but don’t make things up either. The people I associate myself with, will want to understand me as a person. And they have every right to.

I want people to understand… that I am the exact same person I was before I told you I was trans. Personalities are big and physical appearance should come second. If I change at all it’s not because my body looks different. It’s because I am finding myself as a person and the person I was before, didn’t fit right.

About Bee/Ryan
Just a 15 year old kid finding themselves a place in the world where they can be what they what to be.

Open Minds in Small Packages


Someone wrote…

I love how little kids can see the real you but most adults refuse to see it.

What’s your experience?


And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Profile: Krisandra


Androgynous pale-skinned person with short brown hair, wearing black rectangle-framed glasses and a pinstripe suit and tie, with matching fedora. They are leaning against a building with their arms crossed and looking off to the side.

You can call me… Krisandra. Some of my closest friends call me Penguin.

I identify as… pansexual, polyamorous, and genderqueer.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … people refer to me using female pronouns, although I do not actually identify with either gender.

I’m attracted to… people who are multi-lingual, optimistic, sarcastic, and mischievous.

When people talk about me, I want them to… focus on who I am now and what I am striving to become rather than my past.

I want people to understand… that how one identifies oneself really isn’t all that important. All that is important is being happy with who you are.

About Krisandra
I am a student at Oberlin College. While I am studying languages at the moment, Oberlin is also bringing me perspective on sexual and gender identities and helping me to discover who I really am without the pressure to fit into any stereotypical identity.

Question: Relationships


Jessica asks…

What do you do when your partner, of many years, says she is done with this genderqueer nonsense? Either you give it up, get top surgery and never mention it again, or you lose her. Choose.

From outside the battle


Someone wrote…

Perhaps your gender isn’t as important to me because I’m not part of the battle in your head and heart. I’m too busy loving you.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Question: Can a feminine woman be a dad?


Blookulele asks…

I got into an argument with my friends at school the other day, because they didn’t agree that I could be a father. I’m biologically female with a splash of genderqueer. I believe that any kind of person can fulfil any gender role, disregarding biological factors. Can a (mostly) feminine woman be a dad?

Why Pick Just One?


Someone wrote…

Two parts sir, one part ma’am; otherwise known as “sir, ma’am, sir,” (say it quickly) which represents the rapid fire salutations I receive in public – no need to pick just one, I don’t.

What’s your experience?


And what are you thinking about gender right now?
