Profile: Eric

Medium-skinned person in a black shirt and orange hat, taking a photo of himself in a mirror with a white iPhone.

You can call me… Eric

I identify as… a transman with lesbian drama

As far as third-person pronouns go, … he him his

I’m attracted to… queerness.

When people talk about me, I want them to… stop assuming that I am heteronormative based on my gender expression. Even though I have “passing” privilege it doesn’t mean that I am any less queer then others that don’t.

I want people to understand… that being comfortable with your identity starts with being honest with yourself and holding yourself accountable to your own standards and no one else’s.

About Eric

    Weird that you’re so close to me. It’s a strange feeling to know that I may have passed you on the street without noticing.

    sorry about the lesbian drama. Unless you love being in the middle of a real life L-word, that stuff sucks.

    complimenting someone on their ability to pass is problematic ….

    implies that only conforming/normative gender expressions are the ones that trans people should be interested in and rewards folks for assimilating into oppressive systems.
