Profile: Joe

You can call me… Joe. Joseph. (Maybe someday soon: Joey. Jo. Jooey [like Zooey].)

I identify as… myself. I defaulted to male for a long time, but now I realize that my gender is a journey that I’ve only just begun. Recently, I’ve tagged myself “genderqueer.”

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I’ve become ambivalent. All I ask for is respect.

I’m attracted to… attractive people. :) I make no claims to know what kind of person I’m attracted to. My loins are weird like that. They don’t explain themselves.

When people talk about me, I want them to… speak kindly. Not because they felt like they had to, but because I gave them no other option. As Dr. Steve Brule says, “Kill ’em with kindness!”

I want people to understand… that we’re all people. And we all rock.

About Joe
I’m a {fifth year} grad student [ecology], drummer, artist, cook, an avid reader, puzzler, athlete, music snob, sports fan, outdoorsperson, atheist, libertarian democrat, and genderqueer.

Oh, and I have a blog:
