Profile: Shana


You can call me… Shana, Shawn, up to you.

I identify as… androgynous, genderqueer, bisexual, polyamorous, pt vagabond, aspiring polymath.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … meh. I really don’t care; my main objective is not to frustrate folk. If you think I’m a he, I’m a he and so on.

In a perfect world, there’d be commonly-accepted andro pronouns, but since there aren’t, I like the no-fuss route.

I’m attracted to… all sorts of folk, but I’m, more often than not, attracted to fellow vagabonds, dorks, music geeks, word nerds, gypsies, and pirates.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Ultimately, it’d be great to not have programmed gender cues become a guide in conversation. I therefore try to stay as neutral as possible.

I want people to understand… I don’t identify with gender, so please try not to be so hasty about putting me into a box. Different strokes, y’feel me?

    I understand the no-fuss route. I ask some of my savvy friends for either singular they or spivak, but I don’t begrudge those who use binary pronouns (inevitably the masculine ones).
