Profile: Coury

You can call me… Coury, Coury-Jameson

I identify as… pansexual, genderqueer, butchy, fluid dyke. That could change tomorrow. I kind of hope it does.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I’m currently using he/his/his or any neutrals with which you are comfortable. I like to stay away from female pronouns usually, although they don’t offend me, I’ve just heard them all my life. There are some people in my life who I really prefer that they use feminine pronouns. I’m not sure why yet. If you don’t like using them, that’s cool too. I don’t always like boxes.

I’m attracted to… Everyone. Probably you. I like people that make my skin tingle, who touch their tongues against the dip in the roof of my mouth when we kiss, who can carry on an intelligent conversation and also appreciate the vegetative state I often enter after a long day, where I make silly jokes and talk about sex and am whimsical and free about everything. Hands that look like they have a purpose, strength, nose nuzzlers, slam poets.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Know that I’m not confused, I’m learning. There’s a difference. To recognize that I am still discovering my fluidity and all the ways in which it can manifest itself. To understand that even though I don’t have the liberty of not having to explain my gender, I do have the right to being comfortable in it, and other people have the right to be comfortable too, and I will do whatever it takes to make that feeling mutual. To know that I like people, and people like me, and I want us to like each other.

I want people to understand… That I’ve had a very easy time of things so far — no big freakouts and no loss of any relationships due to my gender exploration. Thats not to say that I want things to be harder, but just be aware that they haven’t been hard in that respect for me yet. And that I am very much still learning about myself and I want nothing more than for you to say “I respect your thoughts on this and now I want you to hear mine.” And that some days, I just don’t feel like binding, so I don’t. I still use male pronouns or sometimes none at all on those days. And some days, I want to put on heels and a skirt and facial hair. So I do.

About Coury
I am 19 and go to Sarah Lawrence College. I dabble in lots of things, I study Russian, I pretend like I speak French better than I actually do. I am impermanently non-monogamous both with my romances and my best friends, I really like kissing and lemon flavored cakes. Im generally well-liked, and I really, really appreciate that. It’s hard to find something I’m not interested in learning about or doing. My best friend in NY is also named Corey. I like to be pantsless.

    Hands are a big deal to me, too. I like that you are so appreciative of being liked. That can be such an endearing quality, and the two probably beget each other. You probably know that already. Move to the Florida swamp, and be my boyfriend?

    Florida swamp? Yes please.

    I grew up in Florida. It would be great to be home (:

    Also, I mean it when I say I want us to like each other. Come to my blog, let’s be friends.

    I totally know where you’re coming from with your third-person pronouns. I like feminine pronouns too, but they’ve been overdone for 24 years. :)
