Profile: Taylor


You can call me… Taylor

I identify as… A polyamorous genderqueer/-fluid. I am physically a male, but I carry my strong feminine side with me every day. There are days when I feel like a woman and days when I feel like a man.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I don’t know. I have had several times, when I have found myself confused when referred as a male, when I have been feeling feminine. Guess a feminine man would be somewhat correct, even though it doesn’t cover it completely through.

I’m attracted to… Women, especially tall and feminine ones, even when I have my female days/times. When it comes to sex, in my female times I don’t want/need intercourse at all, because it would feel weird.

When people talk about me, I want them to… focus on my personality, rather than gender. The people around me know that I act very feminine from time to time, but that’s only half the truth and I’d like to keep it that way.

I want people to understand… that my style of dressing up and my taste about culture are a mixture of my both sides. I’ve always talked up how men can like feminine things, but I don’t want most people around me to know how I actually feel about them inside.

About Taylor
An academic genderqueer with a family.

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.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … he/him/they/them. I rarely enjoy hearing she/her.

I’m attracted to… feminine men, masculine women, genderqueer.

When people talk about me, I want them to… focus on my personality.

I want people to understand… there are more than two genders and a zillion ways to express oneself. I won’t dress the same every day but I’ll be comfortable with each choice and that’s what matters.

Profile: Haru


You can call me… Haru

I identify as… genderfluid.
My gender changes from time to time. In general I am one of the following: Male, Female, unclear mix of Male and Female and Space Marine. The last one is a bit tricky. When I am traveling or working I am focused on something during that time, and I only see the task and noting else. Even if a person I find attractive would walk past me I would not notice it. This goes to the point of not even feeling part of the same species.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I find pronoun difficult. When I am a male a male pronoun is good, but as a female I would feel hurt since that would mean I am not a Women just a Guy in disguise. Since my gender switches and even I do not know from time to time which pronoun would be correct, I prefer the use of no pronoun. Luckily the English language allows the replacement of pronouns with my name.
Example:
Instead of: “How is he/she doing?”
you can use:”How is Haru doing?”.

I’m attracted to… Everything feminine. From feminine men over transgender and gender fluid to cis women.

When people talk about me, I want them to… not talk about me. I am very self conscious and always expect them to talk bad about me.

I want people to understand… that, despite me being gender fluid and having problems expressing and reading emotions I am person who can be loved.

About Haru
About me.
I am 28 years old and am currently finishing my master degree.
I come from a traditional home: man is man and man loves a woman.
I started to embrace my female side 3 years ago when I moved away from my family. Even before I was always a weird person, which man does know how to sew and knows which colors work with each other. Now I can be who ever I want to be.

Profile: Aiden


You can call me… Aiden

I identify as… A neutral/fem-presenting trans woman

As far as third-person pronouns go, … She/Her, please and thank you!

I’m attracted to… Everyone? I think? I don’t tend to be sexually or romantically attracted to any one gender in particular, but that could mean I’m ace/aro or pan. I’ve never really had an interest in relationships before, though I think it could be fun.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Talk about something other than my appearance. I know I look funny. I know I talk funny. I know I act funny. I know, I know, I know, I’ve heard it all a thousand times, so please for Christ’s sake talk about something else about me. And please, use my pronouns.

I want people to understand… Words hurt. I was born with only one hand, and my face was disfigured in a car accident. On top of that, I’ve got frizzy orange hair, I’m too tall for a girl, I can’t pass for crap, and I’ve got any other number of flaws that people are all too willing to point out. My self esteem was in shambles for most of my life. Of course, I’m learning to love myself, but there have been times where one cruel ableist joke has set me back months in terms of my progress. Just, be careful what you say. If it’s easy for you to insult someone, chances are it’s just as easy for everyone else to insult them too.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … I prefer they/them or he/him. On any day, I’m comfortable with both, but some days I prefer one over the other (but either works).

I’m attracted to… Beautiful people, in whatever way that may be interpreted.

When people talk about me, I want them to… See past my aggressive outer, which I put up as a barrier, but can’t seem to remove.

Profile: Aster


You can call me… Aster, or any of my many nicknames. (kitty, Pav, Pavatti, Prince, Orion, Apollo etc)

I identify as… Nothing. Neutrois. Agender. Stuff like that. I like being called a boy, but not a man, though that doesn’t change my sense of genderless void where I always thought a solid identity should be.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … He/Him is most common. They/them is also fantastic. She/her is the only one off limits.

I’m attracted to… Men, mostly. Taller manlier men than I.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Talk about me like I am Nonbinary rather than binary just because I use binary pronouns.

I want people to understand… Each other, or at least try to. I want people to understand that not understanding something can be scary, but learning it can be fun and amazing and magical, no matter what it is or how old you are. We’ll never know everything, but if we keep our minds and arms open, we at least have that going for us.

About Aster, or any of my many nicknames. (kitty, Pav, Pavatti, Prince, Orion, Apollo etc)
I’m a 19 year old artist just trying to live my nonbinary life in this binary world. I’m a total sap, sensitive beyond belief and cry when animals die in movies. I stay a functioning human through a cocktail of coffee and stubborn determination and my face looks empty without dark circles. Yes, my hair IS naturally purple. Thank you for noticing.

Profile: Chiyoko


You can call me… Chiyoko

I identify as… A cis male who enjoys the feminine aesthetic

As far as third-person pronouns go, … He/him will do quite nicely. I’ve had people use she/her, and while I honestly don’t mind, it’d be nice if people would just listen. I introduce myself with my pronouns (“Hi, I’m Chiyoko. My pronouns are he/him. It’s nice to meet you!”), and if you don’t use them, well then. Now I know what kind of person you are.

I’m attracted to… Guys with nice voices and interesting hands. Guys who can sing. Guys who are blind and/or use a wheelchair like I do. Guys who are kind and gentle. Looks don’t matter (lol obvi), though if you smell or sound like you don’t take care of yourself, then we might have issues.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Remember than I’m blind, not deaf. Just because I have a handicap doesn’t mean I’m some weirdo you can’t be friends with (I mean I’m not dictating this to a stranger!). Also don’t make jokes about the way I dress or the way I act. I like girly things. Deal with it.

I want people to understand… I’m every bit a man as the one I want to marry someday. Frilly skirts and hair bows and jewelry, honestly, they just feel nice, and if you don’t like it, then you can make like The Man in the movie School of Rock and step off

About Chiyoko
I’m a psych student who’s big into the world of stimming. Things that feel nice are just. So good. It’s actually a bit scary sometimes. I’ve got jars of goo, pieces of embossed paper, stim toys, all sorts of things, and I’m always adding to the pile. I like jpop and scifi, and I’m currently in love with the candle section of Bed Bath & Beyond.

I identify as… Androgynous or bigender.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … He/Him would be great.

I’m attracted to… All Gender identities, but I’m leaning more towards the masculine side.

When people talk about me, I want them to… Not make assumptions about me and to just treat me as they would anybody else

I want people to understand… That it isn’t a crime or something horrible to not feel 100% comfortable with your sex or your body. The genders were made as a social construct and don’t equal the truth. Be what makes you feel the best and don’t mind the opinions of other people.

About Jade or Jaden
I am socially really awkward and often very shy.

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).

Profile: Mark


You can call me… Mark

I identify as… Male dyke, a lesbian stuck in a male’s body, something along those lines

As far as third-person pronouns go, … Masculine ones fit me just fine, but if I had my way we’d get rid of all gendered pronouns and just use the plural ones (e.g. they/them) instead, it’s just more efficient and practical

I’m attracted to… Non-heteronormative people, gender fluid people, agender people, femme males, butch females (especially), trans people

When people talk about me, I want them to… know I’m not judging them.

I want people to understand… that I’m a male who is happy with my body the way it is, but if I had any say over how I was put together and what kind of life I’d have I would have chosen to be a lesbian woman who would settle down with the butch woman of my dreams and have lots of cats together. I don’t know what these feeling make me, I’m not sure what label should be applied to me, but ultimately I don’t think labels mean all that much.

About Mark
I’m a scientist and educator, I enjoy conversing with intellectually curious people, that’s what makes my life worth living.

Profile: Adria



You can call me… Adria

I identify as… a soul who has a human body…

or an alien who’s been planet napped and happens to be trapped inside of a human body.

As far as third-person pronouns go, … one, one’s, zee, thier? I haven’t really read much on gender neutral language so I’m not quite sure what seems to be the best third-person pronoun to use honestly. However, I thought it would be dandy to use emale as a third gender for those who aren’t female or male. Then I thought E would be a good third person pronoun for she/he since both she and he has the letter E in it. I also made up the term ” godzees” or “godzillas” for gender neutral gods.

I’m attracted to… the human soul rather than the human body, so it’s more so mental/emotional/ spiritual attraction. I tend to feel more drawn to people who are humble, genuine, eccentric, empathetic, creative, passionate, respectful, curious, deep, and/or people with a sense of humor who are naturally funny/goofy (unlike most comedians who offend me with gender stereotype jokes and staged “humor”).

When people talk about me, I want them to… hopefully not say mean or bad things! But more importantly, I don’t want people to say remarks that judge, stereotype, or make assumptions about me. It’s better for people who don’t know me to stick to the facts about me such as what I did or say rather than label me. However, if people wish to vocalize opinions about me, I would appreciate them explain why or the reasons for their opinions about me. (For example, rather than just saying “Adria is weird”, I would prefer people saying “I think Adria is weird, because she barks at people while jumping on a pogo stick.”) It’s ok for people to talk about people, but what I really admire and like are the people who talk about ideas/concepts…so it would really be snazzy if people talked about my ideas rather than about me.

I want people to understand… that all types of discrimination are equally wrong and need to be addressed equally by humans in terms of ending the problem of discrimination once and for all, especially if this is done for the sake of humanity or the unity of all humanity . To address or fight to end only some or specific forms of discrimination is to discriminate in itself. If one is truly against discrimination, one wouldn’t discriminate against which types of discrimination are worth fighting for by placing inferior values of importance for the forms of discrimination not being fought for…

There’s so many more concepts that I wish people could understand, so I’ll briefly summarize some of the ideas/concepts that I wish people could understand. I wish people could understand what this world be if was based on cooperation rather than competition. I wish people could understand that it’s not a matter of who’s the best or who is better but instead a matter of personal preference or taste. I wish people could understand the value of the human soul rather than obsess about the skins of a soul’s body in regards to looks/stereotypes/discrimination. I wish people could understand what it’s like to feel unconditional love rather than the illusion of love (aka lust which involves showing off, impressing someone, pick up lines, flirting, jealousy games, etc). unconditional love goes deeper than the physical world and lasts forever; lust only goes skin deep or is based on physical aspects that don’t last forever. I wish people could understand that it’s more important to have a purpose rather than goals. I wish people could understand the joy of doing something that makes them feel good rather than how good they are at doing something. I wish people could understand how much damage ego/power. I wish people could understand what it’s like to be truly who they really and true to what’s in their hearts instead of living in denial and lying to yourself and others by pretending to be someone else…and too many more life lessons to list.

About Adria
there are too many aspects to completely describe or show who I am, so I’ll just touch on some aspects about myself in regards to gender identity… I tell people that I boycott purses and high heels…I carry a duct tape wallet that I made myself with tennis shoes. I’ve worn a dress with men’s swim suit trunks. I’ve worn a nut cup before to see what that feels like. I tend to be tomboy in nature. some traditional female hobbies, I hardly do or am not known for doing those things such as cooking, sewing, shopping, etc. My mind is more so mentally like a male ( but like a female as well) in the “traditional” sense of gender roles and identities….for instance, I’m better at math than I am at language. However, I don’t wish to be identified with my 23rd chromosomes. I wish to be identified as a soul, a spirit, or an individual with a human body…not a male or a female with a soul. This tends to be the way of society in many aspects beyond gender. They notice the physical body and hardly ever really see the soul inside of it. I sometimes say that humans are like “Christmas” or “birthday” presents. Many people look at the wrapping or judge a present by how beautifully it is wrapped (wrapping = the physical body) rather than opening up the present to see the real beauty of the gift inside (the human soul) for what it really is. I wish more people would realize this concept and not value a person’s worth on the skins of their physical body rather than the actual soul, their essence or who they really are as individuals. Just like artwork, I look at strangers as a blank canvas. I know nothing about them, so why paint myself a picture of a stranger that I’ve never met with the usual stereotypes based on their skins. In order to avoid discriminating/ stereotyping/ assuming who they are, I try to wait to get to know the person before I paint a picture…who knows if the picture is ever finished however. Perhaps, it’s never finished like the Mona Lisa, because souls infinitely never stop growing and changing over time…
