Profile: Milo

You can call me… Milo

I identify as… a kinky, queer, genderqueer, polyamorous, feminist, anarcho-socialist

As far as third-person pronouns go, … sie/hir/hirself or they/them

I’m attracted to… genderqueers/androgynes, transwomen, transmen, dykes, cis-women, and a few cis-men.

When people talk about me, I want them to… use nonviolent communication, try to understand me instead of making judgements.

I want people to understand… That gender is irrelevant. There’s no reason for it. If you can’t determine what someone’s gender is, leave it alone. Why do you have to put them in a box? Just treat everyone like human beings. And I want people to understand that everyone is multi-faceted. There are as many genders as there are people.

    Hey! I love your name! I have considered that if I had to name a child, I might name them Milo. Way to have a sweet title and still remain outside the realm of boxes :)

    “Why do you have to put them in a box? Just treat everyone like human beings.” Why can’t this simple elemental idea be more generally understood?

    I think I know why. Quite a bit of human intelligence is based upon our ability to discriminate between things. It is an excellent survival skill, if you’re a hunter-gatherer. We’ve congenitally predisposed to taxonomies. Unfortunately, there are many kinds of behaviors and thought pathways that were beneficial but are now grown toxic. Emphasizing the differences between people is one of the chief mechanisms that fuels prejudice.

    Hi Milo!

    Hello, Milo! I just wanted to tell you that I was really happy to read your profile. I am a poly, kinky, queer, genderqueer socialist and I am very interested in many the things you list in the tinytext section. I am particularly trying to learn how to encourage nonviolent communication in my own life and how to find people who are supportive of the journey I am on in terms of defining myself outside of genderboxes. So just a little supportive rah rah from the peanut gallery!
