    I'm coming out as awesome (gender: awesome. orientation: awesome. default definition of relationship: awesome.), and by awesome, I mean transgressive. I'm a Jew*ish*-feminist-transguy survivor, advocate, and teacher of consent, a scholar and a shepherd, a loving kinkster and a co-creator, because who wants to create alone. I'm embracing transitionality and trying to grow into something beautiful- this world needs more agents of change!


    i gender in layers like i'm getting ready to go out in the cold. you might think you've got it figured out, but really there's more hidden just underneath.


    In no particular order:

    Multi-ethnic, almost out of my twenties, hindu-raised but now kabbalah student, also believer of many truths, androphile, androgyne but male nevertheless, with a dangerous gift, multi-lingual, european (living all over europe), urban nomad, storyteller and artist, tested as gifted and gorgeous on occasion.

    Thinks that is pretty much me.

    (I rather comment anonymous, however you can see my email. If you wish, feel free to contact me)

    I love Jesse's comment btw. Coming out as awesome. That is just awesome.

    I find myself as a continuing flux of masculine and feminine energy. So on the surface I'm androgynous. I feel there is a duality in energy that can be described as masculine/feminine but, its not two separate components, rather two different sides of the same complex ball of soul that we are. I find both energies equally beautiful and strong. I'm also pansexual Its the soul that attracts me.


    orientation - I'm gay
    language/ideology - I don't believe in masculinity, femininity, or androgyny. I don't mean I'm against them I mean I don't believe they exist. People roll their eyes or even get annoyed but its how I see things.
    I do believe in a spectrum of gender/sexual difference, but not a spectrum from one point to another, a rounded amorphous spectrum, like color.
    looks - I no longer know if I like how I look anymore, the answer was once a clear cut "no", now its just "I don't know". And the question of looks always seems to touch on gender, how a man, or a gay man, should want to look and whether or not he should care.

    Who am I?
    I'm mutable.
    I see myself in other people and other people in myself. (stop that sniggering at the back). I show a different face to each facet of my world and I wear a different costume for every stage. Dishonest? Maybe. But that mutability, that fluidity, that empathy… that IS the real me. How do you pin down a river?

    My gender? Just another costume I wear. Yes I have a female body. Yes I identify as female. But only because the dresses are pretty. It doesn’t matter if I dress butch or girly, it always feels like drag, like a costume. I think that if I was assigned male at birth I’d struggle more in society, but as it is I can get away with wearing pretty much anything under the gender radar. If I’m in a lacy vintage dress and pink lipstick, who’s to know that I’m revelling in my drag queenliness? If I’m rocking a waistcoat and cords, it comes over as lesbian chic. But so what? Gender, sexuality, identity: it's all one big dressing up box.

    What’s at the centre? Who am I when I’m totally unobserved, with no expectations mutating my sense of self?
    I have a schroedinger’s soul: sadly happy, seriously flippant, frightenedly frightening, lovingly hateful.
    Well, you did ask.


    About myself: I'm a person. Forget rules.

    grik-canajan ethnic, multilingual, 41, working class upbringing turned professional, sufficient looks and ability to get by for the most part in a judgmental world, hypomanic, childfree, leftiste. Also relevant to me is past work in the sex trades as an exotic dancer and domme, which greatly shaped my sense of self, gender and sexual expression (in positive ways, luckily).

    body: female and petite. Presentation: either very girly or sortabutch (think: an old grik guy called Spiro with the fedora and the three piece suit, or more lately a 70s male salsa star from the Fania daze).

    ** I relate very much to Wordgeek Sarah above: " It doesn’t matter if I dress butch or girly, it always feels like drag, like a costume." And now that I'm comfortable with that, life is better. :)

    I'm a rule breaker because of that I can't make my own draft.I am a happy go lucky person. I go with the flow. In short, I cannot trace my own pattern of activities.
