Profile: Damascus

You can call me… Damascus (Oliver Damascus Enderbury).

I identify as… a genderqueer transmale nerdly McNerdsome.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I prefer he and him.

I’m attracted to… geeks, nerds, bibliophiles, and queers of all persuasions. Not misognynistic transphobic/homophobic dickholes, however–which include a certain percentage of the above list!

When people talk about me, I want them to… say, “Oh my gracious, what a delightfully interesting and lovely human being! I cannot believe he really met Joss Whedon!”

*shameless namedropping*

I want people to understand… French. Ou, le français, si on, en fait, est français/e.

About Damascus (Oliver Damascus Enderbury)
I wish I was as clever as Oscar Wilde, or as able to deliver florid prose with as much gravity and effect as Angela Carter, or perhaps as funny as Randall Munroe, but, failing that, I will only say that I am a university drop out who hopes to be a student again soon, 22 years old, pre-everything-related-to-medical-transition, rather effeminate (for a man), an owner of five dogs, a son of four (mostly) magnificent parents, a writer, an artist, an aspiring musician, a nascent activist, and a bad actor.

My spirit animal / Patronus / animal I would like to come back in another life as…is a ring-tailed lemur. There was this picture book when I was young…

    Woah… tu es tellement comme moi, c’est incroyable… il y a des grosses différences, bien sûr, mais je peux emprunter ta biographie. J’adore Randall Munroe aussi, il est mon héros :) xkcd est une grande inspiration.

    Bonus points to you for doing your thing. You’ll definitely hear me saying “What a delightfully interesting and lovely human being” because *c’est la vérité, ça.*

    I think you’re my new hero.
