Profile: Sage

You can call me… Sage

I identify as… non-binary/genderqueer.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I use they/them. I’ve been cycling through pronouns for a while, but recently I have settled on they/them.

I’m attracted to… beautiful people! I lean more toward femininity, but occasionally, masculinity or androgyny catch my eye.

When people talk about me, I want them to… ask for my pronouns, please. I grew up in a small country town, where the gender binary was rarely questioned. As I get to know more people outside of this town, I hope to meet more who are aware of the complexities of gender outside the binary.

I want people to understand… I am still growing and learning! I’m excited to keep exploring my identity, and the labels I use could be temporary. I also want people to understand that the way I present myself isn’t necessarily a reflection of what I feel like inside. I live in a conservative area, so it is safest for me to present as feminine to my family and friends. When I move out, I plan to drastically change my appearance and be more open about who I am.

    A beautifully written profile straight from the heart. Both poignant and emotive, these words really make such an impression of courage and determination.

    The living area makes a difference. I have to present masculine cause i need a place to stay until I move out at 18. Im a girl who has to do shit like a guy all the time ad it kinda ticks me off. My family does know im teans and is unsupportive(to put it mildly, more like actively fighting me at every turn and decision). I personally feel that being urself without a care what others think is the best poaition to go on.
