My Marxist Feminist dialectic brings all the enlightened young women to the yard, and they're like "It's more egalitarian than yours", damn right it's more egalitarian than yours; I could educate you but I'd have to first establish a non-capitalist skill-swapping economy through which to arrange a reasonable trade for my time and efforts.
"If I told you your eyes are more beautiful than Emma Goldman's writing, would you smash patriarchal notions of human sexuality with me?"
So I just moved to Philly from Tampa, as in yesterday (6/28). As of now I'm kinda living in my car, I'm hoping to track down someone willing to let me couch surf for a little while because between a Saturn coup not being the most comfortable of beds and the cop that wanted to know what I was doing in the random parking lot I found I only got about an hour of sleep last night. I have a lead on an apartment I can afford but it won't be available until the first of August so I'm basically playing things by ear until then. As I'm new to the area and only know two people here I'm looking to meet new friends as well as people who may be interested in something more intimate.
I'm currently looking for work but I've been working as a CNC Machinist for a decade now and since it's a field that's in high demand I should be able to find good work fairly quickly, until then I'm lucky enough that my bosses decided to fire me when I gave them notice that I was going to leave so now I get unemployment while I look.
I've been in both successful polyamorous and monogamous relationships, so for the right person I'd be comfortable with whichever type they preferred. I do believe that the human heart is capable of holding more than one person in it at a time and that the current focus on monogamy comes from the patriarchal concept of women as property and securing heirs in a society focused on property ownership, so my views on sociology, misogyny, and capitalism in addition to an understanding of biology and anthropology all inform my views on polyamory. I think that open and honest communication is one of the most important things to maintaining a close relationship or any type. In my experience with poly relationships I've both been part of a primary relationship where we could both see other people as well as being the boyfriend of someone in a primary relationship. As I am now without a partner I'm looking for a pretty wide range of interactions, I'm always up for meeting cool new friends, physical and romantic partners, and I'm also open to finding a primary emotional partner, someone I can spend my time with and build something long term and meaningful with (not to imply that short term things can't be meaningful).
I'm a radical in many ways, I'm an activist, a feminist, an anarchist (although I see socialism as our best bet for the immediate future currently I see anarchism as a realistic ideal to strive for), an environmentalist, a queer rights activist, a trans rights activist, a labor rights enthusiast, I am anti-capitalist, anti-fascist, anti-Zionist (cool with Jews, issues with the state of Israel and the war-crimes they commit), etc. etc. I have a lot of strongly held views about which I strive to remain well informed.
I fall under the queer umbrella, being both pansexual and agender, I'm attracted to intellect and personality as well as feminine and androgynous physical traits and if I'm interested in someone based on those grounds what's between their legs or what their gender identity is doesn't really play into my interest. As far as dating and relationships go, I'm most interested in cis and trans women, feminine and androgynous genderqueers and others who identify within the non-binary spectrum, and feminine or androgynous cis or trans guys. I'll be honest though, my interest in cis guys is fairly limited.
I consider myself both an epistemological and methodological naturalist, I think that the natural world is what there is and that's it. I'm ultimately agnostic and open to the possibility that I'm wrong, but functionally I'm neither religious or especially spiritual. I'm fine with dating religious people, my last partner was a Messianic Jew, I'm far more concerned with the political and social views of potential partners than their views on the existence of deities. As long as you're cool with the fact that I came to reject the concept of gods after serious consideration and study and it's not a view that's likely to change without significant evidence. If you think you can change me or "save" me please, just stahp.
I have four tattoo's and plan on getting more. On my left shoulder blade I have the words Cogito Ergo Sum which is Latin for 'I think therefore I am' and on my left forearm I have a radial version of the evolutionary tree of life showing off my status as a Biology nerd lol. I have a symbol for Anarcha-Feminism tattooed on my right forearm and I have an anarchy-heart tattooed on my butt. I also have my ears stretched to 5/8" plugs and working my way up to 3/4", 3 cartilage piercings, my tongue pierced, and a 4ga Prince Albert.
I'm an apostate (aka former) christian and atheist and have been active in local groups previously for both atheism and skepticism. Ultimately they were more social groups than anything else and they gave me the opportunity to form many good friendships.
My social views are rather radical; I think queer rights and womens rights are incredibly important because ultimately they're human rights and the fact that our society punishes people simply for being who they are is a great injustice. I'm also fairly active on labor issues and issues of social justice and environmentalism. I consider myself to be a post-third wave feminist and have issues with the way that much of mainstream feminism, particularly second wave and early third wave along with many RadFems, deligitimzes the concerns of transwomen and People Of Color. I also find it troubling that so much focus is on gay marriage right now even though it's predominately a concern of gay white men while trans women and genderqueers have to worry about getting attacked for going to the bathroom and most states still allow for them to be legally discriminated against in terms of employment, housing, etc. That said, if you're opposed to queer equality, think Ayn Rand is one of the greatest authors of the past century, believe Ron Paul is the best hope for our country, or happen to be fond of Fox News (Faux "News"), we probably won't get along very well.
