Profile: Caelan

You can call me… Caelan, Cael for short

I identify as… A boy, though occasionally feel a little agender

As far as third-person pronouns go, … He/him, unless my parents are in the room. Then it’s she/her.

I’m attracted to… Really nice and weird pretty people, for their personality. I don’t judge people based on their looks.

But I could stare at men with long hair all day.

When people talk about me, I want them to… USE THE RIGHT PRONOUNS and also recognise that despite my faults, I am a unique and brilliant person

I want people to understand… Even though there might not have been genderqueer people when they were growing up (there were, actually, they just didn’t tell people) there are now, it’s not a phase, and we’re here to stay. You can live in the past, or you can accept it.

    The pronoun thing hits close to home. I’m in the process of trying out pronouns and my friends are willing to call me whatever I ask, but my mom needs to have things eased onto her, and I haven’t even come out to my dad

    Love your name. Ive only just figured out there is more than just boy and girl. Ive been a tomboy all my life and growing up i always wanted to be a boy. even happy when a stranger called me a boy but my parents would shoot that down, even though they let me dress more like a boy at a young age. Nice to know there are others out there that are going through what i am.
    Keep being yourself
