Profile: Nyau

A pale person with a shaved head and two piercings in their ear, smiling at the camera.

You can call me… Nyau.  It’s not my name or even a nickname, I just don’t like using my real name on the internet.

I identify as… just generally genderqueer.  I like to wear makeup sometimes, and other times I don’t.  I like to wear skirts sometimes, and other times I’d rather wear baggy jeans and boots.  Sometimes I feel like a girly-girl, other times more like a tomboy, and other times more like a bi boy.  My feelings are dynamic and sometimes change day to day, but more often week to week.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … “She” is what I’ve always gone by, but when I’m feeling more masculine I wouldn’t mind being called “he.”  I really don’t care that much either way.  Call me whatever you want, just please, PLEASE, not “it,” haha.

I’m attracted to… Lesbians who look like Justin Beiber.  Strong- looking girls with short, tufty hair, broad shoulders, and big boots.  Small, quiet, artistic boys with delicate chins and piano-player’s hands.  Tall, broad-shouldered men with scruffy beards and glasses (Morgan Freeman).  An interest in music and art, video games, anthropology, natural sciences, and ancient history.  Geeks.  People who don’t fit in.  My boyfriend

When people talk about me, I want them to… realize that I’m not being different in order to offend their delicate sensibilities.  I used to try so hard to be non-different, and I failed so very, very hard.  I am now IN-different.  I am the way I am, and I don’t fight it (no, not even to protect your delicate sensibilities).  If you don’t like the way I am, just move along.  I don’t push anything on anyone.

I want people to understand… that they don’t need to understand what’s going on here, and it is not my responsibility to make them understand.  Whether I’m dressed as a boy or a girl, I’m really just having fun.  I almost always feel genderless, and I don’t feel that gender defines me at all.

About Nyau.
I’m at university for Geology, but I spend a lot of time playing Pokemon and World of Warcraft.  I love being outside in the forest, especially in the summer and fall.  I love to draw, mostly in pencil, mostly of naked girls with wings and dragons.  I’m madly in love with my boyfriend, who understands me more completely than I ever thought anyone could.
