My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If we're under a 70% match your message is getting filtered, I'm tired of dealing with cis gay dudes who think I'm gonna want to fuck someone who thinks contraceptives are morally wrong or that evolution isn't real. I really don't even get why the fuck you would message someone you have that little in common with.

Busy, Busy, Busy...

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?"

Hey, I figure it's time for some updates as I've been living in Philly for a while now. I came here in a desperate flight from Florida, packed all my possessions in my car, drove here prepared to sleep in my car until I was able to find a place, but then met many wonderful people who have become close friends, many of whom offered me places to crash while I got on my feet here. I've found a real sense of community here that I've lacked other places and while I'll probably always be socially awkward I feel like I fit in here better than I have anywhere else I've lived.

First thing you should know is that I'm rather queer. I'm pansexual, I have a complicated relationship with my gender and identify as genderqueer (please use they/them pronouns for me) and lean far more to the feminine than my conventionally masculine outward appearance would lead one to assume. I'm also strictly polyamorous, I cherish the committed relationships that I have and and those that I currently have but I consider monogamy to be an archaic construct rooted in misogynistic and patriarchal ideals. More specifically I am a relationship anarchist as I prefer not to rank my relationships (be they friendship or romantic) in terms or priority, instead letting each relationship be what it is for however long it is, along with this comes an understanding of relationships as a fluid concept which in my experience makes things far more amicable when one party feels the need to transition away from a romantic relationship. It's a lot easier to stay friends when you value your relationship with someone on far more points than the romance.

I've been working as a CNC Machinist for a decade now I've been lucky enough to be in a field with high demand and reasonable pay, and I've gotten to contribute from things like keeping the SEPTA trains running to making parts involved with the Mars Rover. At times it can be a boring, put in a part, push a button, take out a part, kind of job, but other times it can be very engaging and challenging as I troubleshoot obscure problems or determine the best way to program a machine to do what I want it to.

I've been in both successful polyamorous and monogamous relationships, but as I am currently in a long distance relationship with someone I started seeing when I lived in Florida and I'm also dating someone here in Philly it is unlikely that I'll be venturing into monogamy again any time soon if ever. I 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 of 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, and most recently the relationship anarchism described above.

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 Jewish people and very opposed to anti-semitism, 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'm attracted to intellect and personality and my sexuality could more or less be summed up as "not cis men", not that cis men aren't attractive, but experience has led me to set the bar high regarding them. Ultimately, when I'm interested in someone and we have a lot in common what their gender is or what their genitals are don't really have any impact on whether or not I'm attracted to them.

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 long distance partner is 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 3/4" plugs, 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. Over time as I came to see how misogynistic and racist aspects of organized skepticism and atheism were I have distanced myself from these groups.

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, delegitimizes 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 cis men while trans women and genderqueer folks 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.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, activism, ranting at bigots on the internet, and raging against the injustice that is so prevalent in the world.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Caring about and being empathetic towards those whose experiences are different than my own.

I also like to think I'm pretty good at listening and adjusting my behavior and views when being informed that I'm fucking up on something, regardless of what tone I am approached with. I strive to be a decent person and accept that it's something that takes constant effort and self-education.

I'm not a bad singer, but I shouldn't be on a stage... lol. I do really enjoy singing though and do so regularly in my apartment/car/shower.

Honestly, I'm pretty open about myself so anything you want to know is fair to ask.

I dunno, I'm queer and kinky and really fucking hate injustice.

I got a vasectomy a couple years ago, I guess that's one of those "private" things right? I dunno, I have no intention of having kids and if I ever change my mine my DNA is not so special that it needs to be propagated, I'd rather adopt a kid who needs a home.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
