Profile: Kendall

You can call me… by my name, Kendall.

I identify as… pansexual, queer, cisgendered girl.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … as girlish as they go.

I’m attracted to… female masculinity, male masculinity, transmen, butch lesbians, dykes, androgyny, intersexuals, my husband.

When people talk about me, I want them to… speak softly and sweetly in case they have to swallow their words.

I want people to understand… that things are fluid and shift. That just because I’m feeling like a super femme girl today, that doesn’t mean that wearing the same thing tomorrow I won’t feel like I’m in drag. That just because I married a man doesn’t mean I’m a heterosexual woman perpetuating binary stereotypes.

About Kendall
I love wearing heels even though I’m 6’2. I feel like wearing makeup and dresses is putting on my gender every day. Sometimes I like that I can pass as a hetero girl and other times I hate that people can’t see that it’s not that simple. I love when people see that I’m a little queer.

    Ever been to the Netherlands? I never considered myself a short person until I went there. You’d fit right in, even in heels.

    I totally get it when you said that stuff about perpetuating binary stereotypes. Sometimes I completely steer clear of hetero-relationships simply because I don’t want to be seen as not really with the rest of the queer community.

    The funny thing is- the queer community usually gets it- I just say I’m bi or genderqueer and it gets left.

    But its everyone else that give me a hard time-

    “I thought you said you were queer”

    Or even worse-

    “She’s in a normal, healthy relationship.”

    Amazing, there are others like me out there! I could have written your intro, although the height would have needed tweaked a foot or so.

    Wouldn’t it be nice to have a secret sign? If there is one, somebody better fill me in. ;)

    Thanks for being you.

    You are awesome. I needed to see this tonight. I have issues on a regular basis trying to stand out as myself, even though I’m in a relationship with a guy. Thank you so much :-)
