Profile: Chain


You can call me… Chain

I identify as… non-gendered.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … by order of preference, most preferred first:

1) no pronouns (just “Chain”)

2) any gender-neutral pronoun

3) singular “they”

4) he/him/his.

I’m attracted to… all genders.

When people talk about me, I want them to… not refer to me in a gendered way.

I want people to understand… that my sex, gender identity, and body have nothing to do with me.

About Chain
I’m called Chain, I’m nineteen, I live in California, and my apartment sort of looks like nightblogging. I spend most of my time on my Tumblr (chain-of-prospit) or staring vaguely at the contents of our kitchen. Sometimes I’m Dave Strider. I’m always too cool for gender norms. I like cake.

Mother


Someone wrote…

I’m a genderqueer/genderfluid ‘female’ who wants to be in a gay relationship with a man, but also wants to be a mother one day. My boyfriend tries, but I don’t think he understands. I go back and forth feeling one gender and then the other and it hurts. I don’t know what to do anymore. If I became a man, I couldn’t be with my boyfriend anymore. But what gay guy would want me? And then I couldn’t be the mother I’ve always felt I am.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Uniform country


Someone wrote…

Often I feel inadequate. I am a youth in a family that comes from a very conservative and uniform country. I am often reminded that I am supposed to be a woman, I should act, think, and look like a woman. All of these things make me feel like an inadequate individual; I don’t fit in among the women, I don’t fit in among the men. I’m often anxious of ever finding my place in the world, of being loved and accepted for who I am, whomever that turns out to be.

What’s your experience?

Profile: Ahuviya


You can call me… Ahuviya (Ahu for short) , Chairwoman/People’s Republic of Ahuviya Harel (official Communist titular names), Lady Gulag (My BDSM Mistress/Dom name), Jingles (My BDSM Slave/Sub name), or Harel (my last name in Military situations).

I identify as… a queer-as-fuck pansexual and poly Male-to-Female persyn, leaning androgyne and very anti-capitalist. I’m not really a girl, but I’m definitely not a boy either. I’m something else. I have been on Estrogen, how I continue with my gender transition is a very personal matter. I feel my transition is a fluid and working laboratory of gender to experiment, but nonetheless – I love my Queer body.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … please use She, Her, They, Them, Ze, Hir. Whatever pronouns, as long as it’s not those fucking male pronouns, like “He, His, or Him.”

I’m attracted to… bones, scars, hands, legs, feet, and pretty eyes. Doesn’t matter what your biological parts are or what gender you identify as; if I find you attractive I find you attractive. No questions asked.

When people talk about me, I want them to… bones, scars, hands, legs, feet, and pretty eyes. Doesn’t matter what your biological parts are or what gender you identify as; if I find you attractive I find you attractive. No questions asked.

I want people to understand… Question Authority when it comes to Gender, and do not let your gender identity get placed in a box. It’s something to be played with and used. It’s a spectrum of colors, not black and white. Nothing in this world is ever black and white, and people should stop thinking in these arbitrary absolutes.

About Ahuviya 
Ahuviya is a Genderqueer MTF in Her/Hir mid 20′s , She/Ze is still stuggling to define Herself/Hirself even after two years of Estrogen.

Queer as anything


Someone wrote…

As an agender person, it’s really impossible for me to be in a straight relationship. My boyfriend and I may not be the lesbians you see us as, but we are queer as anything.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

Profile: Lisa Marie


You can call me… Lisa Marie.

I identify as… Sexuality: I prefer queer, because it is less restrictive. However, I am also okay being referred to as a lesbian. I strongly identify with the lesbian community.

Gender: Cisgender / Femme Female

As far as third-person pronouns go, … “She” or “Her” are fine.

However, gender-neutral pronouns are also acceptable, as I do not believe pronouns should be gendered. No one should have to feel isolated.

I’m attracted to… “masculine” women mostly, androgynous or genderqueer women, female to male transgender… occasionally cisgender men (very rarely).

I have a beautiful partner right now, and she identifies as a butch lesbian.

When people talk about me, I want them to… when people talk to me, I want them to know that I am a dedicated LGBTQ activist, and I take my work in the community very seriously. I am proud of what I have accomplished, and I hope my contributions will improve the lives of many queer people.

I want people to understand… I would like people to understand that just because my gender presentation is femme, it does not mean that I am not a lesbian. Many people have pre-conceived notions about what lesbians or queer women are supposed to look like. I do carry a purse, I like to wear my heels, and I like to dress up in a skirt, but don’t assume (based on my appearance) that I am heterosexual.

Both Sides


Submitted by Leigh, the model and photographer.

“While playing with a pair of found glasses at work, I captured the side of me that I feel inside!  A little boyish, or butch, if you will. I’ve never been or felt feminine.  In fact, I ran screaming into the night when I dressed up as Barbie for Halloween a few years ago, couldn’t wait to get out of that feminine getup.  But this, this is me, this is how I feel.”

My clothes


Someone wrote…

I like to wear dresses and make-up. I don’t really consider it drag. For me it is just me expressing myself in a way that isn’t considered normal. Why be normal? I like being different and unique, its more fun anyway. I’m not crossdressing when you see me in skirts and makeup. I’m not wearing women’s clothes. I’m wearing my clothes, thank you very much.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

The visually-oriented world of gender


Someone wrote…

Everytime I stumble across someone online who identifies as something other than cis and is also visually impaired I feel slightly less alone. In the highly picture/visually-oriented world of gender on the internet I often feel like I am the only one out there and am missing out. I wish this wasn’t such a big deal to me.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
