Profile: Asher

You can call me… Asher

I identify as… A transsexual male androgyne, a dirty queer pervert, a punk faggot, and a very pretty boy.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … “He,” “him,” “his.” And “Sir.”

I’m attracted to… Nerve, toughness, resilience. I like survivors. I like people with morbid humor and a capacity for rage that equals mine, and a capacity for love and affection equal to mine as well. Lots of the people I am attracted to are men. Some of them are not. My lover of the past year (and hopefully of many future years) is infinitely more gender fucked than I.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Avoid doing so when not in my presence. Actually, avoid talking about me when in my presence too. I can speak for myself.

I want people to understand… that my gender is not about them.

    I like your clothes. I don’t need someone that has the same amount of rage that I have but someone who can handle it. I like morbid humor too.

    I’ve read your Carnal Nation column. It was one of the things that helped me figure out/accept that I’m trans. Thank you!

    Just been enjoying your column – you really have a habit of nailing it!
