Profile: Rina

White person with short, spiky brown hair, sitting in a car. They are winking and pointing playfully at the camera.

You can call me… Rina, Keena, Carina… hell, call me Joe if you really want.

I identify as… A pansexual dyke. A genderqueer. A cat lover.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I often get mistaken for a young man; I don’t care one way or another. However, being called ‘sir’ while still acting feminine is one of the best ways to make my day.

I’m attracted to… proper grammar, bad puns, nerds, and things on the feminine side of the gender spectrum.

When people talk about me, I want them to… accept the fact that sometimes, I don’t even know the answers to their questions.

I want people to understand… that I am a person, not a sexuality or a gender. Such things can–and often will–change with time.

About Rina
I am fourteen years old, and will be a sophomore in the fall. I plan to become an illustrator and graphic designer when the time comes for me to get a job. Until then, I’ll spend my time catching Pokemon, playing various instruments, and hunting for comfy sweaters.
