Profile: Beck

You can call me… Beck. A lot of people call me Ben when they first meet me because I mumble when I talk.

I identify as… an androgynous genderqueer, tomboi, a lesbian that’s not a gay man… Just somewhat high-maintenance. I guess you can just call me a metrosexual dyke.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I prefer masculine ones. When I get called ma’am or miss I feel awkward.

I’m attracted to… Intelligent, witty, feminine women that can beat me in Scrabble … I’m attracted to my partner – she’s pretty fly.

When people talk about me, I want them to… not do it behind my back. If they do, I want them to know that most walls have ears.

I want people to understand… that I’m not a boy who is trying to sneak in the women’s changeroom at the gym.

About Beck
I’m a 28 year old business developer. My favorite candy flavor is red and when I don’t feel like doing work, I like to blog.

    “Intelligent, witty, feminine women that can beat me in Scrabble” What a lovely description. Far out of the ordinary. Nice neighborhood.

    I love your description of yourself as a “metrosexual dyke”. So many layers of gender in that!
