You can call me… James, but there are lots of people that call me Jia.
I identify as… mentally male, biologically female. Aiming for androgyne. I have DID and my other is a male, but as a bio-femme, I have always, desperately wished not to be a girl. I’m genderqueer as hell, polyamorous and bisexual.
As far as third-person pronouns go, … I prefer the masculine set, generally. It makes my day when someone calls me sir.
I’m attracted to… art, hypnosis, crossdressing, skinny girls, intelligence, a good singing voice, gentleness and a good sense of humor. I’m also attracted to incredibly feminine girls and incredibly masculine men – so I suppose I’m attracted to a strong sense of identity in other people.
When people talk about me, I want them to… just say what they actually think. If they can’t tell what gender I biologically am, that’s perfectly fine by me. I hate being referred to as a dyke, because it’s not true.
I want people to understand… … that bisexuals are people, too, and that prejudice doesn’t just reach gays and lesbians. The LGBT community as a whole needs to understand that sexuality is a spectrum. I’ve had more discriminatory and hateful remarks from lesbians and gays than I’ve had from the straight community. I thought when I joined the LGBT community that there would be acceptance and love, and instead, I received the same sort of condemnation for being poly and bi that I did from the Christian church. We’re all guilty of prejudice, and we all need to work on loving each other.
