Profile: Wolfsnake


You can call me… Wolfsnake, Dapper, “Hey you.”

I identify as… …an artist. An Alaskan Native. A friend. A child of loving parents. A neopagan priest.

I also, as luck would have it, happen to be queer. I am a third-gendered person, oft-accused of being a goth/steampunk/hipster/geek, who enjoys occasional forays into the silly world of masculinity and femmy-dudeness. If people stare, I’m doing it right.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I prefer my name or he/they/it. Yes, I’m fine with “it,” seeing as English doesn’t currently have a neutral third-person humanizing pronoun yet. I wouldn’t use it for others without asking first, though.

I’m attracted to… intelligence guided by kindness. Creativity, self-awareness, nerdiness. Passion for making the world a more beautiful place. Dark palettes. Guyliner. The ability to discuss Deep Space Nine and the irruptive nature of Snowy Owl populations over the same cup of coffee. Unselfconscious laughter and smiles that reach the eyes. Also, queerness of a masculine, androgynous, neutral, or agendered persuasion.

When people talk about me, I want them to… …gasp, “Who was that masked man?”

Srsly though. I want people to talk about me either as any friend would speak about any other friend–naughty bits and gender identity notwithstanding–or I want them to enjoy the free public entertainment that is oft-costumed life. I provide excellent value for money in that respect.

I want people to understand… …that plaid should never be worn with stripes. Also, I don’t do this for the money. I don’t do this for the glory. There is very little of either. Personally, I do this because I am here on this Earth to be myself, just as hard as I possibly can. And I hope that by doing so, I will empower, comfort, enlighten, or at least amuse others in my path.

    Thanks for posting! I am a similar person to how you describe yourself. This morning I was feeling rather down about being “weird” or different. I guess we are both just uncommon combinations of things embodied. Thank you, though, for reminding me how awesome that can be and that I should show myself more compassion.

    I absolutely love your bio :D I’m also a DS9 nerdy-gothy-vaguely-steampunky person. Also, a great picture!
