Profile: Avery

You can call me… Avery, but I’m ‘in the metaphorical closet’ about mentally changing my name to Art.

I identify as… Female to non-female as of right now. I get called a tomboy by some people, which I’m trying to avoid altogether. I’m a deeply-considering-it-to-please-end-my-life-if-I’m-not-a trans-guy.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … Please call me by male pronouns. I want to tell My family is always calling me Miss -last name- and Daughter. It kills me inside whenever I meet new people and then get ‘revealed’ as ‘female’ because of my parents/friends.

I’m attracted to… Primarily cis-men and FtMs, but sometimes I do feel attracted to certain girls. I’m attracted to gamers and fellow techno-lovers.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Stop wondering about whether I am a ‘girl or a boy’. Especially when I haven’t met them before.

I want people to understand… That I’m sensitive, no matter how nonchalant I can appear. I recently reprimanded one of my friends for beginning one of our conversations with ‘guuurl’. I also want people to stop taking our narrow-minded cultural assumptions of gender roles so seriously.

About Avery
Self-promotion, indeed. So uh, on the side, when I’m not being all teenager-y and angsty about gender and biting people’s asses about calling me by the wrong pronouns, I make art from paper and pencils/pens/Photoshop. I have a pet snake which I often forget to feed (they don’t need to eat that often anyways..). Anyways. I do enjoy creating culinary creations (one can attempt to master more than one form of art oho). And I enjoy eating rare steaks. No wait, I’m supposed to be trying to go vegetarian.

    First time I visited here, but it seems you’re too hard on yourself. What’s the point of driving yourself insane about something you can’t control? Like other people. Better to slow down, have a little fun along the way. You’ll get where you’re going just as quickly.

    Cool. What kind of snake? “Guuurl!” I assume is the equivalent to “Duuude!” – I have never liked either of these.
