Woah! That was only partly purposeful!
Anyway, I will forever describe myself as a “skirts and motorcycles” kind of girl. I lean towards the feminine side of the spectrum, but I have some tomboy tendencies. And climbing trees does happen from time to time. I hear people call this "hard femme," which kind of makes me sad, because I'm not trying to gain a label. I just like climbing trees. And wearing a skirt while riding my girlfriend's motorcycle, if I can get away with it.
I make wishes on triple-digit clocks, the moon, loose eyelashes, and specific locations. I believe that finding pennies on the ground is lucky, and fresh herbs are magical and powerful. I tend to use sage, lavender, and rosemary a lot. Purple seems to be a power colour for me. I collect Tarot cards, and there are two or three decks that I use regularly.
But in all honesty, these things work for me, because I believe in them. Who we are and what we believe needs to come from within. Sure, it’s good to listen to other people, but letting others decide your identity and what you believe is not so good.
I've been told that I can be pretty snarky. Some find it pretty damn hilarious, and usually in those cases, they will just give it right back to me. (I call it clever wit.) However, there are others who are highly unamused. I suppose it's a preference. Like, some people think that toilet humour is so goddamn hilarious, but generally, I'm pretty disgusted and unamused by toilet humour.
I also like puns and wordplay. Maybe that was implied at the start of this section, but that wasn't puns, that was aliterative. Puns are funnier to me.
It says on my profile that I'm "gay," and I believe that I am, even if I'm attracted to the opposite gender sometimes. I have taken the word "gay" and made it my own. My sexuality is very fluid, and I try not to use "lesbian" or "bisexual." Those words seem too black-and-white to me. However, if you self-identify as either of those two words, It's not my place to tell you that you're wrong. Like, my shoe size is a size 8, and you may be a size 6. (That's usually the case. My friends often have smaller feet than me, and I can't borrow their awesome shoes.) Anyway, the size 6 probably fits you perfectly, even if I can't squeeze my size-8 feet into them. But it would be silly and kind of oppressive for me to tell you that you can't wear your shoes that fit you so well just because I won't be able to borrow them. In much the same way, it's not my place to tell you what words you use to describe or self-identify just because I don't use the same ones.
Actually, I'm just coming to terms with my bisexuality, but I don't want to delete what I said about shoes.
Now, some of you, I'm about to call you out. But feel free to move onto the next profile if you are a person who disagrees with me.
I don't see it as often as I once did, but it most definitely exists in some "lesbian" gatherings I've been to. This apparent dislike of women who identify as "bisexual," or women who are feminine, and some of you have your negative views on transwomen as well.
First of all, if you're transphobic, we will not get along. End of story. I don't think I even need to supply a reason. Just don't even deliver that shit to me, ok?
Secondly, biphobia is as bad as homophobia, in my opinion. Whether it's just a dirty look you give, or cold curt responses, or something worse, you're judging someone based upon their personal preference. That's as bad as a homophobe, don't you think? Not cool. So not cool.
And finally, I express myself the way I like. I like my pink and my sparkly things, and have also been known to sport Disney Princess apparel. And my hair has been long more often than it's been short. Because, guess what! Those are things I like! Nobody told me to! I make my own choices.
There are certain styles, kinds of people, etc. that I tend to be attracted to, such as those who are gender-nonconforming, but if there's anything I actually look for in a person, it's intelligence. If you can have intelligent conversation, and can give answers that sound like you actually gave them some critical thought, rather than pulling them from a textbook, we should get along.
Communication is very important to me. How can anybody expect to get what they want if they don’t communicate their wants and their needs? Guessing games are for game night, not for communication, and I don't respond to acts of passive aggression too well. If you want or don't want something, use your words, and I mean in a direct way. I'm not a mind reader.
