Profile: Alexa

You can call me… Alexa. Or Lexi. Either way. :3

I identify as… I’m not entirely sure. I lived most of my fifteen years o’ existence as a guy before I sorta realized I felt more comfortable as a girl. I started acting ridiculously feminine over time, but that didn’t fit well either. I have a pretty sensitive side but sometimes I prefer the company of doods more. I guess I’m a little bit of both…  So, some sort of half-femme half-tomboy girl? But still, 100% girl.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … my appearance can sorta pass as female, but my voice is clearly male, so I get “he” and “him” usually. Some of my friends are nice about using “she” and “her,” like my sister. I’d prefer that, but I don’t get upset when people use the wrong pronouns.

I’m attracted to… the best description is probably pansexual, although I’m particularly attracted to FTM guys physically. I pride myself on being able to remove the negative from things, so I don’t care about appearance much at all. I dunno what it is about trans dudes, but they’re just cuuuute. :3

When people talk about me, I want them to… The character Grady from Parrotfish (which anyone who’s ever experienced a flux in their gender identity should read!) said it pretty well: “I want people to start knowing Grady, and not Angela.” In that way, I sorta wish it was easier for people to pick up recognizing me as I wish they would: A girl. On a totally non-gender related note, I wish they’d pick up more on my silly weird sense of five-thousand mph humor. :D

I want people to understand… That who I am isn’t changing (well, at least back to being 100% boy). I wish others knew how powerful the desire to fit my skin is and how much using “Alexa” instead of “Anthony” and “she” instead of “he” helps. Mostly I just want people to understand that I’m not really different from them (at least, not for this reason :D).

About Alexa
I’m thoroughly weird and have rid myself of silly concepts like “anger” and “jealousy.” I don’t get mad at people and in one short sarcastic monologue I could drop a thousand silly references and hilarious (and by hilarious I mean so stupid they’re funny) jokes. I’m a fledgling hipster and a total nerd. The bending of apparent gender pleases me greatly.

    so your gender is wibbley wobbely, timey wimey? (just needed to throw that in there ’cause you said you were a nerd! Your experience sounds fairly similar to my overall journey with the exception that I’ve reached a point where I can’t stand when people use the old name and wrong pronouns because most everybody knows my as Elissa.

    Awesome! I just wanted to put it out there that it made me feel much better to see someone say they like FTMs. I am the other way around (female/tomboy/wannabe FTM… sorta), but helps me to affirm how much I intuitively like trans girls. It’s hard to explain to lesbians, forget about straight people!
