Profile: Derek

You can call me… Derek

I identify as… genderqueer

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I’m not particular, really. Weird to say, but I think I would prefer “it”, if it were completely up to me. I realize how “it” can seem insulting, or like you’re a “thing” and not a person, but it just feels neutral, to me.

I’m attracted to… Women. I have a definite tendency towards a more tomboyish vibe, but it’s not a strict rule or anything.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Trust that I know me more than they do. I will in turn trust the same for everyone else.

I want people to understand… The “just want to/trying to be different” thing is the worst kind of catch-22. If you don’t argue against it, they get to stick with their assumptions and misunderstanding, but if you do try to argue, it’s treated as proof that you “just want attention”. You can’t win against this dismissal.
