Profile: Liam

You can call me… Liam.

I identify as… I’m not really down with identities that hinge on gender (as in trans, though I am proud to be a tranny), since that is inherently oppressive. So let’s just say I’m queer.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … he or ze, please.

I’m attracted to… lots of qualities/people/identities, but usually feminine women. What can I say?

When people talk about me, I want them to… get to know me. I’m an open book. And a good read.

I want people to understand… that gender is a fluid system, but also as a system of oppression that needs to be dismantled. Though it is fun to play with, for the time being.

About Liam.
I want to advocate for queer rights for the rest of my life. Gender is the bane of my existence, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I started a Youtube channel (lml127) and a tumblr ( to address issues of gender. Really, it all fascinates me and I love to learn- I am so so so lucky that I get to think about all this stuff.

    Though I understand Liam doesn’t ID as male, I am still feeling uncomfy with someone transmasculine using the tr*nny descriptor about themselves. see:

    I agree. My first thought was “Speaking of things that are inherently oppressive…”

    Yeah. AFAB trans people, remember that is not our word to reclaim.
