Profile: Phoenix

You can call me… Phoenix

I identify as… An androgynous agender punk

As far as third-person pronouns go, … They/them are preferable, but he/him are okay as well

I’m attracted to… Androgynous or masculine women, genderqueer people, honestly if you’re a genuine person who speaks from the heart you’ve probably got a chance.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Focus on who I am as a person rather than my gender. I get that it’s a lot to take in for some people, but it’s important to respect others for who they are. If I do something truly shitty, judge me for that rather than how I present myself and what I am.

I want people to understand… Just because I have a biologically male anatomy and am happy with said anatomy doesn’t mean I’m a guy. And just because I’m not a guy doesn’t mean I’m therefore a girl. Honestly, the world would be a better place if we threw out the ideas of “male” and “female”. They’re outdated societal means of shoving people into boxes to control them (and honestly, most people don’t completely fit into these boxes).

    I totally agree with getting rid of strictly male/female as norm. I’ve only recently realized how uncomfortable I am with being characterized so much based off my anatomy and I appreciate your openness. Sorry for the awkward comment, I’m awkward.
