Profile: Cricket

You can call me… Cricket/Theo/Noam/Ada/Omi/Naomi, or really anything that isn’t insulting.

I identify as… a genderqueer gentleman. A monogamous pansexual. A hairy feminist. A vegetarian hippie. A tree-hugging, pamphlet-waving environmental activist. An obsessive-compulsive intermittently plagued by panics and tics. A cartoonist, poet, songwriter, and all-around quirky artist type.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I’m accustomed to female ones, wouldn’t mind male ones, think neutral ones are nice in theory, but tricky in practice, and love being called “sir.”

I’m attracted to… free thinkers, open minds, eclectic eccentrics, legumes and fresh garden vegetables, ukuleles, and all-around outliers in the grand social experiment of life.

When people talk about me, I want them to… be friendly, curious, respectful, and maybe just a bit puzzled about who and what I am, so that I have a chance to teach them some new words and ideas.

I want people to understand… that I’m more afraid of them than they are of me.

About Cricket
About to enter college, happy but nervous. In a long-term relationship with a heterosexual, but decidedly non-heteronormative cisguy. Planning on becoming an NPR broadcaster, journalist/photographer, musician, political cartoonist, sex ed teacher, and/or environmental scientist.

    I’ve changed a bit since I submitted this – I’m actually in college now, feel way more comfy with gender-neutral pronouns, and am in a relationship with an amazing bigender femme. I still love that outfit, though.

    I also ramble about gender on Tumblr:

    You seem like a really cool person!

    I am in love with your waistcoat, I do hope you don’t mind.
