"I don't remember aspiring to grow up to be a man, but was disgusted by the idea of growing up to be a woman. Physically I don't think I want anything different than what I have today, my own skin."

-- Micah, formerly Mich and Maddox, explains for the New Yorker about the idiosyncrasies of identifying as both asexual, and agender; preferring a body image that embraces gender-neutrality after laser hair removal, a double mastectomy, light hormone therapy, and rejecting pronouns that didn't fit "they."
