I identify as… A Fun swirly swirl of masculine, feminine, and everything between; bursting with gender; a bad-ass bearded lady; a fuzzy little bear.
As far as third-person pronouns go, … I’m not too concerned. They/them is cool, but I’m also fine with she/her. I get he/him once in a blue moon.
I’m attracted to… sardonic wit, social justice warriors (taking that back from people who say that pejoratively), warm expressive eyes, kooky laughs, distinct voices, big hands, emotional vulnerability, dirty grins. I have a right-brain-boner for operatic singing voices.
When people talk about me, I want them to… break out in song. Spoken word can never, ever do me justice.
I want people to understand… – that gender, presentation, and sex are three different things with no obligation to be in some order that makes “sense” to you.
– that living openly & unabashedly is not an attempt to shock, offend, anger, or bait for attention.
– that being kind, gentle, and optimistic takes a lot more courage than being hard, angry, and bitter.
– that love heals everything. hate heals nothing.
