Feel free to answer all or a few. I'll go first.

Gender ID: Queer/Male Gender Expression: Androgynous/masculine Bio: Male Orientation: *insert lie*

And also, it's okay to lie. ;)

Also, if using a "/", put the stronger one first.

Interesting thread, Oban.

Gender ID: Queer/Male Gender Expression: Masculine Biological Sex: Male Orientation: Bisexual (although pansexual may be more applicable to me, whatever...)

Gender ID: Male Gender Expression: Masculine/Androgynous - I only put androgynous because sometimes I catch myself doing things that women do, mostly in the way I stand. Crossing my leg a certain way, putting my hands in my belt loops, etc. I don't know why I do it, just always have. Bio: Male Orientation: Heterosexual. Seriously, I'm straight as an arrow. Doesn't mean I don't know an attractive male when I see one, though. Silberio. <3

I'm not saying you aren't... but whenever someone has a follow-up for saying "I'm heterosexual" I instantly have some doubt in the back of my mind. I think if you had said "Heterosexual. Doesn't mean I don't know an attractive male when I see one, though", I probably wouldn't have any doubts. =p

Regardless, I don't think anyone is strictly heterosexual, myself included.

Edit: I've never seen a gay guy say "I'm homosexual! Seriously, I'm as bent as an arrow." I don't know why straight people feel the need to thrust their heterosexuality upon people. Which is the whole reason for me not believing anyone is strictly straight, who are you trying to convince that you're straight? Me, or yourself?

Gender ID: N/A

Don't really think of myself in those terms. With no clear basis for comparison it's not even clear what it would meant to do so. How would I tell if I was narrating my qualia the same way females would narrate the same qualia - given that we have such diverse ranges of stimuli and histories? I'm aware that I'm a man - but I don't think of myself as dreadfully masculine or feminine in a given emotional context.

If we're using soft and hard, adjectives like that, well then there's something that seems to hook together better. But there seems a fair bit of inherent sexism in placing that on a gender identity spectrum - with the implication that it's determined fairly strongly by our biology.

Gender Expression: Male.

Bio: Male.

Orientation: N/A

Just not particularly interested in relationships. My father's response whenever you're pissed off about something is that you need to go and get laid - don't see the attraction myself. There are better ways to set off a cascade of happy chemicals in your head, and it's not like I've any desire to breed and risk passing on the disease of his particular way of interpreting life.

Most people have a fairly thorough idea of what is meant by each. That said, it's perfectly okay to not have such an idea, and to not ID with either. :)

The question doesn't have to do with whether you want a relationship, but whether, assuming you did, which would you be. I'm not big on one right now either, but I still answered. With a lie. :lulz:
