Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
One afternoon, when I was eight years old, I sat underneath our
dining room window reading a book I had checked out from the school
library. It was Journey to the Year 3000, an especially grim
edition of the Choose Your Own Adventure series. The basic premise
of this book was fairly simple: I had been frozen in a space
capsule for one thousand years and now, upon my awakening, I had a
dystopian interplanetary empire to contend with.
With increasing intensity, I flipped through the beginning bits to
get to the branching points in the story, choosing a new path each
time, trying to exhaustively reach every possible conclusion. Here
I was marooned on Mars, left to slowly suffocate as the oxygen on
my suit gradually depleted. At another turn, I was poisoned to
death by Styx Mor as he decided that I was a threat to his evil
dominion of the Earth. Again and again I perished, and again I
would start anew. I felt I had to see every path and, more
importantly, I had to find a way to escape this seemingly
Finally through the sheer elimination of fatal choices I arrived at
one of the only survivable conclusions. I had reversed the tables
on Styx Mor. He lay dieing at my feet, having been tricked into
consuming his own poison. In the final paragraph as I gazed out of
the window of his throne room up into the stars, my adventure over,
I realized that I had nothing to return to. Everyone I had ever
cared about been dead for hundreds of years.
Back under my dining room window I began to cry. No matter how I
tried, I could not find the happy ending. A terrible sense of
finality washed over me. As I looked up at my mother, who was
sitting across the room, I saw that she was drifting slowly, but
inevitably away from me, all the time.
It was at this exact moment that I understood that we will all one

I am a trans-woman!---------------RAWR!
Fun fact: Dating as transgender really really fucking blows.
Imagine: Instead of the comparing of interests and personality with
potential new partners, suddenly now everyone is exclusively
interested in what may or may not be between your legs. Demands
that you describe your genitalia become typical first date or even
first conversation fare. And even the most well meaning and
intelligent individuals will, without warning, make some
ridiculously derogatory comment or request.
"Well hot dog!" (You must be saying) "Where do I sign up?"
- Well sorry folks, this is exclusive club that you can only be
"But trans-lady person, what if I find you attractive and want to
date you myself."
-Well that depends...are you educated about what it means to be
transgender? I mean really educated through positive sources who
are themselves transgender. Because folks I'm afraid to say that
you've likely been pumped up full of nothing but bullshit on the
topic, and unless you take it upon yourself to read some google or
a book or something, you're likely just going to blow that bullshit
all over me. And I'm not going to be very happy about that.
"But what about your genitalia! I really need to know cause my
friends, family, or sense of masculinity is afraid of penises!" or
"I really want to know about your genitalia cause I really want to
suck or take a penis up the A within the confines of my
-Gross! Looks like you ignored my previous advice and are spraying
that bullshit. If you care about whether or not I have a penis or
vagina, then you are wasting my time and yours. Cause that stuff
for a person like me doesn't work the way you saw in that porno
that one time. You gotta take the time to learn about what my body
means to me without expectations born out of fucked up entitlement,
or you gotta go get yourself lost!
So yeah, this fucking blows. I really wish I could keep my profile
lighthearted and centered around my actual personality. Please give
me some indication that you have read and understand all this if
you are messaging me for the first time, or you are going to be
