Profile: Becca/Preston

Androgynous white person wearing smudged rainbow lipstick and equally smudged rainbow facepaint going down from one eye. They have short purple hair and blue eyes.

You can call me… Becca, Preston

I identify as… genderfluid, bisexual

As far as third-person pronouns go, … whatever works. i like being female and i like being male.

I’m attracted to… pretty girls and prettier boys with pretty eyes and pretty smiles.
more personality than physical features. i like em funny and smart and respectful.
i like toned girls and built-for-cuddling boys.

When people talk about me, I want them to… talk about my brain not my body. ultimately our appearance is the shell for what’s important.

I want people to understand… that nature or nurture is irrelevant when talking about the outcome. who cares WHY i’m genderfluid and bisexual? i am who i am and i love me. i wouldn’t have me any other way. not if it’s a choice, not if it’s designed.

    I admire you, for pretty much everything you said. Also, love the pic.

    It would have saved me a great deal of grief if I’d been able to dismiss the nature/nurture question. Instead I kept blaming myself for making my life harder or potentially betraying various gender groups (the “real” females, males, and trans folks) by being genderqueer. Which, you know, wouldn’t have been making my life harder if I hadn’t been blaming myself for it and questioning whether I was “real” all the time. :P

    I also love that you can say, “I like being female and I like being male.” Presumably you were assigned one or the other, as was I, and I think a lot of us (like me) feel that no one will except the validity of our entire gender identities if we admit to any affinity with the assigned one. I think I’m past that now but it took me three years after officially adopting a non-binary identity.

    Built-for-cuddling should be a body type on dating sites.

    I also like that you value respect! Too often in our culture we see disrespect as a sign of wit or status or ingenuousness or somethin’. Given my family background, the value of respect was something that sort of sprang from me after repeated contact with the world, and it was this new and somewhat strange thing that I could never get my family to understand. :P

    Your hair. Your rainbows. Your…philosophy, I guess, I’ll call it? Anyway, you’re awesome. :3
