Profile: Sasha

You can call me… Sasha.

I identify as… genderqueer/non-binary/trans* and sometimes as a femme trans* guy. To be honest, I don’t have a one-word label for myself anymore, and I don’t think I need one. All that matters here is that I identify outside of the binary.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I prefer they/them/their. I used to ask people to use e/em/eir, but it didn’t really work. I’m cool with masculine pronouns and prefer that you don’t use feminine ones for me.

I’m attracted to… intelligence, quirkiness, open-mindedness, honesty, boldness, and confidence. As far as gender is concerned, I am panromantic. I am sexually attracted to masculine and male-identified people, masculine/butch women, and androgynous/non-binary people.

When people talk about me, I want them to… use gender neutral and/or masculine language and pronouns. I’m sick of being called ma’am, miss, young lady, she, girl, etc. The worst is when people use the masculine/gender neutral (“hey dudes”) and then correct themselves (“and dudette”).

I want people to understand… that me being queer and trans* is just one part of me, and that there’s a lot more to me.
