Profile: Winter

You can call me… Winter. As long as you don’t call me a guy.

I identify as… A transgender lesbian feminist.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I like female pronouns. Masculine pronouns kind of bother me, but I don’t want to get too upset about people who don’t know any better.

I’m attracted to… Women, preferably women who want to make a real difference in the world.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Try to understand that what I’m going through has nothing to do with them and does not reflect poorly on their character. If people feel uncomforable because I’m pushing gender barriers, it’s only because I’m being myself.

I want people to understand… That despite all appearances, I’m really a woman. I was born in a way that I wouldn’t have chosen, but I know who I am and what I want. I’m not confused, and I’m not doing this so I can be happy. I’m already happy. I just want to be myself.

About Winter. As long as you don’t call me a guy.
I’m 28 years old and I live on campus at Shippensburg University. I go to a Transgender group every month during which we generally talk about the same things and eat delicious cookies. I refuse to consume caffiene and alcohol, and I prefer not to support businesses that serve alcohol. I am also a vegetarian. I believe that if you want to fight for someone’s rights, you can’t just fight for a group of people here or there, you have to fight for everyone, because people often fit into more than one minority.
