Quotes[edit | edit source]

"I identify as queer. The word resonates with me and seems to describe both my gender and my sexuality, which are two separate things. I understand that a lot of people are still uncomfortable with that word, though, so I try to be flexible. You can call me bisexual or androgynous, and I'll believe you understand who I am. If you live in a world where there are only two categories for gender or sexuality, you can put me in whichever one feels most comfortable to you. I usually won't argue."[5]

"I think sexualities (along with genders) are as unique as personalities. Categories make it easier to make assumptions and generalizations about people, but that's only useful when you're trying to paint broad strokes. When it comes to loving people, you have to listen to how they feel and what they want as individuals, no matter who they are."[6]
