Profile: Dude

You can call me… Dude seems to suit me.

I identify as… anatomically female, neither man nor woman, both man and woman, or one or the other on different days or in different phases. I’m not confused! I was just born as both.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … they all sound so ridiculous that I’m ambivalent. I wish we didn’t have to choose, because there are so many implications behind both sets. I’ve been taught that “she” means weak and “he” means strong, for example. Call me “he” just for the sake of corruption.

I’m attracted to… passion, positivity, unwavering understanding/kindness, deviance and perseverance. Cross-dressing men. Mad style and anti-fashion. Above all, honesty and humble intellectuals.

When people talk about me, I want them to… realize that my life and mind are much different from anyone else’s, just like yours, so you shouldn’t criticize. I believe that when you treat someone well, you’re treating yourself well, and the same goes for treating someone meanly, even if only behind their back.

I want people to understand… that questioning authority includes questioning one’s own. Don’t feel insecure if you are wrong; everyone is wrong sometimes.

About Dude
I keep getting reminded of how much I have to learn. Trying to get rid of the chip on my shoulder and live happily in a society whose values are different from mine. So far so good. I want to reform public education, especially health education, and live off the grid. And I love you.

    Out of curiosity, what specifically do you want to reform about health education? I ask because I think it sucks too. :p also I kind of want you to be my best friend, email me at if you want

    Health education needs to include sex ed that adequately addresses consent and more holistic bodily health, basically. And then all those schools that teach abstinence– holy moly does that need to change. It’s more complicated than I probably know and I’m at a place where I know how to change it, but I know it’s severely lacking and has dire consequences, such as unwanted teen pregnancy. What do YOU think?
