Profile: Bizzy


You can call me… Bizzy

I identify as… genderqueer, stoner furry. My mother’s child, a friend, a listener, an artist, a creative soul way out of it’s time.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … people use feminine pronouns, I could care less.

I’m attracted to… humor and beautiful souls. Girls, boys, FtM, Mtf, genderqueer folk.

When people talk about me, I want them to… talk about how I make them laugh, cry, and think

I want people to understand… “normal” is just another way to make the world prejudice. That androgyny and pansexuality ARE real things. There are actual gray areas.

About Bizzy
I’m a 19-year-old artist. A proud furry and a very proud stoner. I like to push boundaries and make people realize themselves. I’m not afraid of who I am, or what I’m passionate about.

See Me For Me


Someone wrote…

I just want someone to see me for me, I cannot define myself any more than that and I wish other people would stop trying to.

What’s your experience?


And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Profile: Padraig


You can call me… Padraig, or rarely, Ari.

I identify as… I hate to use my stock response, but it amused me that “a genderqueer, polyamorous goth” so closely fit how I describe myself in most places aka: I am a polyamorous, pansexual, deeply kinky, genderqueer, switch, goth rocker with a flair for the dramatic, and sex drive like a rabbit on Viagra… :p

I operate a lot on learned male mannerisms due to not needing another reason for people to castigate me aside from being strange, fat, or a geek. Only if I am extremely comfortable with someone will I let my natural, more femme side and mannerisms show.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I just stick with he/him as I am used to it. I don’t feel they encompass me, but they don’t bother me either.

I’m attracted to… femmes of all gender presentation (yes that does mean cis, trans, CD etc…), Queer, Tall, Big & Beautiful, Geeks, Gamers, Intelligence, Thoughtful people, Goths, Therians, Vamps, etc… I am actually very open and easily connect with many people, but everything above adds to the appeal.

When people talk about me, I want them to… realize that under the big barbarian-esque exterior, I am actually a giant teddy bear and a very tender, emotional person.

I want people to understand… genderqueer can’t, and never will fit into a box or be neatly labeled and packaged.

Just because I seem to be comfortable in my own skin doesn’t mean that I am.

Just because I don’t struggle outwardly as genderqueer does not mean that I am not struggling with immense inner turmoil.

Looks are deceiving… Some see a large confident picture of masculinity, I look inside and see an insecure butch girl trying to define herself, but just not sure how.

About Padraig

I think I may have finally found my mate, she is nearly my opposing gender variant and the only person I have completely opened up to.

Potential in an Absence of Gender


Someone wrote…

I think it would be nice if EVERYONE was able to be first judged on their character, not what might be under their clothes. I think that androgyny might sometimes be a blessing, that some people should be forced by an absence of gender presentation to consider the PERSON standing before them.

What’s your experience?


And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Profile: Tori


You can call me… Tori.

I identify as… female.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … “she,” thank you very much.

I’m attracted to… interesting people.  Ever since my transition began, I’ve realized gender is just one of a laundry list of qualities.  And while I may prefer males, all else being equal, the fact is that all else is SELDOM equal.  And a good heart and a good mind are more important than any particular set of genitals.

Gender hardly even matters to me at all anymore.

When people talk about me, I want them to… know that my personality is blossoming newly for the first time, without the pain of depression and repression.  I’m discovering new things about myself every day, and I hope you will be there for me too as I figure out just who “Tori” really is.

I want people to understand… Every single thing you’re afraid of is much, much less terrible than you think.  Don’t let fear stop you from being true to yourself.  I wasted YEARS down that road, and in the end, for what?  I’m  happier than I dreamed I could be.

About Tori
Geek, correcting-nerd, sometimes artist, listener, gamer, friend.

Middle Ground


Someone wrote…

Genderqueer to me today means feeling sensual and gentle enough to shave and wear a cute skirt, yet strong enough to take on the world and tell off anyone who has a problem with it as I go proudly about my day.

Loving the freedom of the middle ground; it’s not either-or, it’s both-neither, and damn it feels beautiful.


And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Profile: Hunter


You can call me… Hunter

I identify as… a transgender avenger of my middle school! I am a 13-year-old Cassanova!

As far as third-person pronouns go, … please use male pronouns, I really like “dude.”

I’m attracted to… feminine girls, cosplayers, nerds, snugglers.

When people talk about me, I want them to… see that I don’t like being a girl, and I want them to respect that. And call me a boy. I want them to see how much I am trying to bring GBLT respect to my homophobic middle school. I want them to call me Hunter.

I want people to understand… I want people to understand what I am going through. Being trans is hard enough, especially at a young age. That I don’t think their horrible looks or hateful words are going to help me. To understand that you shouldn’t judge sexualities, but personalities.

About Hunter
My name is Hunter, I am 13. I want to bring GBLT respect to my school. I never wanted to be different, but my body has put me into a cage. I am here to help the kids at my school understand that just because I am a boy in a girl’s body doesn’t mean I am a freak. I want to help my friends or other people at my school deal with the hatred of the other homophobic children.
