Profile: Uly

You can call me… Uly, for short.

I identify as… a panromantic, pansexual, age-indefinite writer/artist… who looks best in heels and a dress, but internally, is simply androgynous. Someone who, inside, encompasses all genders and is indiscriminate to both biological sex and age. Sounds confusing, I know, but bear with me!
(I’m also camera-shy; it bothers me to look directly into a lens.)

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I don’t mind whether someone calls me “he” or “she,” just as long as I know it’s me they’re talking to! No matter what I’m wearing– heels, slacks, a dress– any pronoun is welcome. Similarly, I like “sir” and “ma’am” the same. (But no “miss.” “Miss” screams “young adult”; I’d rather just be an adult.)

I’m attracted to… anyone who happens to attract me. I’d say confident, open-minded persons. People with a sense of individuality, (somewhat) twisted wit (I’m a writer, after all), and appreciation for the arts. Polite, considerate… thinks before they speak… that sort of thing. Courtesy will get you everywhere with me!
On a more visual note, I flock like a moth to a light to the outwardly androgynous. Persons who mix and match both sexes’ fashions, however and whenever they like; there’s no reason the best of both clothing sections can’t be blended into one! I say outward because I see one’s fashion sense and one’s sense of gender as different. In a nutshell: snazzy dressers are, regardless of anything else, snazzy and therefore drool-worthy.

When people talk about me, I want them to… consider me as straddling the lines of both gender and age; I think of myself as all genders, and prefer to forgo age-specific labels. I’d rather not be known for either gender or age, just myself. My ambiance, my soul, me.

I want people to understand… that I see gender and age as fluid, interchangeable aspects. One day, I can be a man, and the next, a woman; most days both. And even though I see it that way, I understand that not everyone does, and I’m completely fine with that. As long as everyone’s civil and polite, live and let live.

About Uly, for short.
My name is Ulysses (Uly for short), and I’m an aspiring novelist, hobbyist comic artist/illustrator, and a procrastinating muralist. And as much as I’d like to ramble (how I love to ramble), the words ‘writer’ and ‘artist’ pretty much sum me up!

On a second note, to pay the bills, I’m a freelance illustrator and an administrative assistant/DJ/dinner theatre actor for an entertainment company.  (It’s an interesting, strange-yet-fun line of work.)

    It’s so gratifying to know there are other people out there like me, with classically feminine figures who like dressing to flatter them but feel fully gender fluid. :)

    This is the first time I’ve come across another human with a dislike of age-specific labels. I’m transmasculine myself, but I dislike “boy” and “girl” equally… then again, I’ve been told I was an adult (or at least tried to sound like one) from birth, pretty much, so I probably would think like that… I’m also camera-shy, and never look in The Lens if I can at all help it!

    Anyway, nice to read you!
