Profile: Lizzy / Owen

You can call me… either Lizzy or Owen. Miller is fine too.

I identify as… Well, I don’t quite know. I’m an awfully short, biological female with long hair that I love or hate depending on the day. My gender changes. If I feel like a girl, I’ll dress like a girl. If I’m feeling like a dude, I’ll be a dude for however long I feel like it. I don’t know what I am, and I’m fine with that.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … any and all, please and thank you.

I’m attracted to… fit girls, tall boys. Preferably with a healthy balance of stereotypical femininity and masculinity, much like myself. Intelligence and compatibly in terms of political opinions and humor is important.

When people talk about me, I want them to… talk about what I do and not who I am. I would much rather be remembered as that chick who has feathers in her hair who danced in the halls and overcame numerous obstacles instead of anything else.

I want people to understand… gender is not concrete. It changes and stretches, much like our emotions and thoughts. Simply because I look like a girl (and don’t have the balls to cut my hair short) does not mean that I necessarily identify as a girl. Gender is tricky stuff.

About Lizzy / Owen
I’m me. I’m 17. I would prefer to wear boxer shorts than anything else.

    I want your unicorn badly

    You’re adorable. And it’s awesome to see someone else who looks like a cisgender female most of the time and still has a fluid gender :)

    Yay for Unicorns! Also, yay for another mostly cisgendered looking person that nonetheless isn’t cisgendered. I’m a very male bodied genderqueer person myself.

    You are a beautiful person and have a great attitude!

    I’m genderfluid but look like a cis female because I’m biologically female and have long hair, which makes me look pretty feminine. I’ve always worried that people won’t take my genderfluidness seriously because of my hair being long and ‘girly’… so thank you for posting, it’s good to know that I’m not the only genderqueer who looks cis :).

    Thankyou. I am just barely beginning to look at this stuff (at 30, wtf repression!) and to see someone who is doing things this way makes me feel less fake and shaky. And the comments make it even better.
