Profile: Hayven

You can call me… Hayven

I identify as… Neutrois / agender / gender nope. I’m a gender-neutral person who doesn’t like to be put into boxes.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … Any gender-neutral pronoun is fine. I normally use they/them/theirs, but ey/em/eir or xe/xem/xyr are fine, too.

I’m attracted to… No one. I’m aromantic and asexual.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Focus on what I have to say, not my gender. Despite the “weirdness” of being non-binary, I’m still a human being and should be treated like any other.

I want people to understand… That nonbinary people are just like anyone else — we’re *normal.* Not everyone fits the flippin’ binary!

About Hayven
I’m a 29-year-old enby from Park City, Utah, and I’m currently finishing up a Ph.D. in sociology. I’m currently an adjunct instructor at a university, and I hope to land a tenure-track job soon. When I’m not focusing on academic pursuits, I’m working on anti-racism and LGBT+ activism. My hobbies include hiking, skiing, biking, and reading (mostly non-fiction and sci-fi).
