Profile: Jonas

You can call me… Jonas! (exclamation point optional)

I identify as… A happy, heterosexual transman.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I prefer male, but I try not to get offended when people use female ones.

I’m attracted to… women willing to have lengthy discussions with me about Harry Potter and music. And kind smiles, they make my insides all warm and fuzzy.

When people talk about me, I want them to…

I want people to understand… how much happier and more comfortable I am with myself now. I also want people to understand that I’m not abandoning my past, it just feels amazing have a present and future to really be excited about and look forward to.

About Jonas
Jonas was born and raised in Southern California. Upon moving to Virginia for college, he saw his first snowfall and has almost conquered his fear of thunderstorms. He spends most of his free time playing music and making lists of things he’ll never remember to do.

    People so often concentrate on telling the tale of the hardships of transgender lives, it is nice to see someone else who feels that they have found release and joy.

    Dude. You sound almost just like me. I really like your profile. *wants to talk about Harry Potter and music for hours*

    I think I’m just going to keep this inside my heart so that I remember that trans* people can, in fact, be happy people and that ONE DAY I will be a happy person too.

    I love your smile, it is really good to see one today. Also you have an amazing attitude and really cool glasses.

    I just KNEW you were a Potter fan before I even read that part- and what’s more- you strike me as the type to be a fan of AVPM (A Very Potter Musical for those who don’t know- and WATCH IT OMG, UH-MAZE-ING)

    We Potter-fans just have that vibe about us. Its- dare I say it- Magical.

    Indeed it is, very magical. As are you Jonas, you seem to have an awesome personality. Gives me hope that I’ll make it to where you are some day.
