I moved to Calif. recently from the midwest, because I want warmer winters in which I can socialize more conveniently.
On "Transparent" they said everyone has a kink (or two). I wonder if that's true. I guess I do, though it's probably more an oddity than a kink. I like to crossdress sometimes and I kind of like Lolita fashions.
I want to do all I can to help make the world a better place for all people and all living things and I want a mate or companion who feels similarly. I'm willing to be a companion with or without marriage (at my age).
I'm a "liberal" or "progressive" mostly.
I want to consult with local governments to encourage them to provide job guarantees for all local residents, as explained by Modern Money Theory, MMT (which is liberal economics). That would help the poor, the homeless and the entire local economies.
My background is in carpentry, gardening, farming, landscaping, writing, some art, etc. I've also read a lot of science and favor mostly alternative science.
I do lots of different things for fun, kuz I'm flexible.
By the way, speaking of crossdressing,, this is from a woman married to a crossdresser. After interacting on the CD forum for a time, she says this:
1) No two crossdressers are alike.
2) There is no superior way to crossdress
3) Forget the collective 'why'. There is no ONE reason for crossdressing.
4) GGs [genetic girls, i.e. born female] CAN have a happy relationship with a [male] crossdresser. Even the less accepting [GGs can], like me. But it takes much [work] and there is some amazing info here from all the other posts written by the many wise and kind members [of the crossdressers.com forum] who've made their relationships work and helped mine, too. Know yourself as best you can. Know what this means to you and try to look ahead to where you hope/think/fear it might lead. Learn that you also control who you are, not just the internal feelings or thoughts. These things are strong and yes, they may inevitably lead you to where you are meant to be, but hopefully not to the detriment of all else. If you can find the balance in your life and be truly present in it, you have as much to offer a partner as anyone else [does]. You really do. Women might not always appreciate the visual and physical aspects of crossdressing or the social difficulties (which will hopefully change) but they can appreciate the honesty and vulnerability and the effort you put in to being the best person you can be, in spite of this hand you've been dealt [born in the wrong body, or with a compulsion to look or feel feminine, etc]. Wherever this journey leads you, remember that it chose you and there are some amazing, positive lessons to be learned along the way - hopefully, shared with someone who sees the whole you, and not just this one aspect. Hopefully, you will see the whole person, too [in your partner].
My main things are humanitarian and ecology concerns.
