Profile: SG

You can call me… SG.

I identify as… Genderqueer, ladyboy, person of unimportant gender… I’m starting to feel at home with just ‘queer’. I’m also a panromantic asexual.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … By default, male pronouns or the singular ‘they’ are preferred, however I can be open to female pronouns occasionally. The amount of respect I feel from a person plays in greatly with how comfortable I am with the pronouns they use for me; if you respect me, you can generally call me whatever you’d like.

I’m attracted to… People who don’t let society dictate what kind of person they are, but who simply -are-. Male, female, androgynous, neutrois, genderqueer… it doesn’t matter as long as they’re true to themselves, and as long as they get that I don’t fit inside of a box.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Realize that my body’s biology has nothing to do with the person I am, and that trying to categorize me according to the genitalia I was born with limits and obscures the overall view of who I am. Don’t try to justify something I do or don’t do by my physical sex, because that has nothing to do with it. Who I am is in my head and in my heart, not in my chromosomes.

I want people to understand… That it’s okay to not be a boy or a girl. That it isn’t dangerous when a little boy wants to play with dolls or a little girl wants a G.I. Joe. It isn’t dangerous to shop for clothing in the “wrong” department or to desire a permanent transition from one side to the other. There are over 6 billion people in the world – to try to sort them all into just two boxes is impractical. There are so many more important things to be concerned with in life than whether or not a person fits a gender label.

About SG.
I’m an artist and a storyteller. Currently, I write and draw the webcomic Half Death (http://www.halfdeathcomic.com). I’ve also done a few comics about androgyny and asexuality.

    I love how well you described yourself, your views, and all! My partner is so similar though you seem more comfortable with your masculine side a bit more than he is. He doesn’t mind me using the pronoun because I comfortably switch to she as well. He reads this column all the time and I hope with every post like yours she will find a comfort that you seem to exude. :)

    <3 I actually mistook you for a friend of mine. But you are still an amazing person :) and he was flattered that I mistook you for him.

    What can I say? I completely agree with your views. You’re obviously very intelligent and open and that’s really admirable. Also I love your picture, did you draw it?

Be nice. Judgmental comments will be quietly deleted and blacklisted. There's plenty of room for those elsewhere on the web.
