You can call me… Chris.
I identify as… a male-bodied genderqueer.
As far as third-person pronouns go, … I prefer “ze” and occasionally “hir,” although the singular “they” is also acceptable. If you slip up and use male pronouns when you describe me, I won’t be offended, nor will I be heartbroken if you use female pronouns to describe me.
I’m attracted to… femininity, regardless of sex or gender. What really draws me to a person, however, is intelligence, wit, humor, and compassion. I want someone who understands me, as cliché as that is, but I also want someone smart and funny (nothing more attractive than a beautiful mind). I usually find myself attracted to female-bodied people, but I am attracted to both sexes.
When people talk about me, I want them to… realize that my body does not define my gender. I am physically male and bearded, but I am not just a man. There is a beautiful girl living inside me, and I want people to see both of us. People don’t realize that their preconceived notions about me can hurt, and it can really color the way they see me in a negative light. I dress in either male or gender neutral clothing: I know what I look like. People shouldn’t equate clothing with spirit, however, and I want people to know that what they see does not define the person beneath the surface. Above everything, I just want people to focus on who I am, not what I am, and refer to me in neutral terms instead of going by what they see.
I want people to understand… that I’m just a human being who wants to live and love and laugh, just like everybody else.
I am a secondary English and theatre education major. Also, music rules my life. Talk to me… get to know me!
