Profile: Gordon

You can call me… Gordon

I identify as… a genderqueer female who’s as much man as woman.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I prefer male pronouns, but I don’t feel like going through the hassle of telling people this. Just don’t call me “lady” or “Miss.”

I’m attracted to… creativity, spontaneity, honesty, humility, feminists, aggression, submission. People who are fabulous, androgynous, playful, welcoming, compassionate, passionate, patient, musical, and active-minded.

When people talk about me, I want them to… take me as seriously as they would a man and try to put themselves in my shoes.

I want people to understand… that gender is irrelevant and much too limiting. That there is nothing wrong with exhibiting any of the traits associated with masculinity or femininity, no matter what your gender or sex.

About Gordon
I’m a primitivist humanist, nice as hell and quiet. I like to practice self-defense, make things, dance, play dress up, climb trees and buildings. Just trying to be happy with where I am while I study to become an educational reformer. I fight every day to be myself and hope one day it won’t take as much effort.

    i don’t know, I found it on a google image search, maybe for “rude boy” or something.

    I remember this picture! I saw it illustrating a story on the “Teddy Boy” subculture (UK, 1960s).
