You can call me… Sophia.
I identify as…
1. A woman, and a trans woman if you need to know, though I wish I could forget about both of those and just go with “person.”
2. A femme feminist.
As far as third-person pronouns go, … “she” is good. I have to say I’m pretty embarrassingly binary … by which I mean, proudly binary and proud of my non-binary friends, lovers and allies! (What a comeback!)
I’m attracted to… women, non-binary genders and non-hairy, feminist men. Well, I can deal with hair if everything else is in top shape, but patriarchy kills my attraction instantly.
Despite being femme myself, I do like femme women a lot. I guess I like them just as much as butch and androgynous women, though in a different way.
Now that I live as a woman, it seems a bit harder to find femme women who also happen to be into me, and that’s a little disappointing.
When people talk about me, I want them to… forget about my gender for once! I don’t want to be “the trans person,” I want to be just a normal abnormal person like anyone else. Stop objectifying me by my gender status. (And while we’re at it, I want what every other trans person probably wants: to be treated and accepted as my gender rather than as my gender assigned at birth)
I want people to understand… that they don’t know what being trans means. They should stop assuming stuff.
I started transitioning a bit more than a year ago and, it has been a roller coaster. If we didn’t have calendars, I’d assume I started at least 10 years ago.
I’m also vegan, femme, feminist, polyamorous, an Esperanto speaker, a defender of unschooling and non-coercion in general, a believer in the gift economy, and many other labels.
As for my work, I call myself a writer. I don’t earn much money yet, but it is what I do full time. I try to help my readers become better people and change the world. You can check me out at www.sophiagubb.com.
