Profile: Deirdre

Person with short hair, wearing a seafoam-green long-sleeved shirt, standing in front of a white wall with a neutral expression.

You can call me… Deirdre

I identify as… human (more specifically, genderqueer/queen & pansexual).

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I’m leaning towards ne/nem right now.  I don’t mind gendered ones, and I somewhat enjoy when people use “he” and “him,” but they’re not exactly correct.

I’m attracted to… smarties, cuties, beautiful and interesting people, tallness, shortness, fatness, knobbley arms and legs, vibrance, colour, depth, emotion.  Humanity.

When people talk about me, I want them to… think of me like a regular person and focus on who I am, not what I’m labeled as.

I want people to understand… that they have a right to be respected in regards to their identity, which comes with the responsibility to do the same for others.

I love questions and meeting people, even if I am pretty awkward about it most of the time.

    Somehow you remind me of Peter Pan… the one from the book, not all the imitations. (That’s a good thing; I like Peter Pan.)
