Profile: Padraig

You can call me… Padraig, or rarely, Ari.

I identify as… I hate to use my stock response, but it amused me that “a genderqueer, polyamorous goth” so closely fit how I describe myself in most places aka: I am a polyamorous, pansexual, deeply kinky, genderqueer, switch, goth rocker with a flair for the dramatic, and sex drive like a rabbit on Viagra… :p

I operate a lot on learned male mannerisms due to not needing another reason for people to castigate me aside from being strange, fat, or a geek. Only if I am extremely comfortable with someone will I let my natural, more femme side and mannerisms show.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I just stick with he/him as I am used to it. I don’t feel they encompass me, but they don’t bother me either.

I’m attracted to… femmes of all gender presentation (yes that does mean cis, trans, CD etc…), Queer, Tall, Big & Beautiful, Geeks, Gamers, Intelligence, Thoughtful people, Goths, Therians, Vamps, etc… I am actually very open and easily connect with many people, but everything above adds to the appeal.

When people talk about me, I want them to… realize that under the big barbarian-esque exterior, I am actually a giant teddy bear and a very tender, emotional person.

I want people to understand… genderqueer can’t, and never will fit into a box or be neatly labeled and packaged.

Just because I seem to be comfortable in my own skin doesn’t mean that I am.

Just because I don’t struggle outwardly as genderqueer does not mean that I am not struggling with immense inner turmoil.

Looks are deceiving… Some see a large confident picture of masculinity, I look inside and see an insecure butch girl trying to define herself, but just not sure how.

About Padraig

I think I may have finally found my mate, she is nearly my opposing gender variant and the only person I have completely opened up to.

    thanks for saying that you may seem one thing on the surface, but that there’s a lot more going on with yr gender underneath.

    best of luck trying to find harmony between your expression and your feelings.

    You sound so much like my husband that only the pic kept me from calling him to ask if he did a genderfork profile and forgot to mention it.

    Or to put it another way, you’re awesome.
    And I wish you lived near us.
