I long ago gave up the idea of privacy, especially on the
I've been a blogger since the early 2000s, and been socializing
online since the mid 1980s. And I was using computers since the mid
70s (yes, I was 4).
I live my life pretty uncensored - you can find more out about me
than you care to with a simple google search. But don't worry, I
always lean toward over-protecting my friend's privacy.
Here's some snipets of my more alternative views:
- I've been exploring polyamory
since 1992 and have been
quite "out" about it. Like, been in the media 'out'. Our nomadic
lifestyle doesn't lend itself to the depth & regularity of
relationships we prefer, so we concentrate on just us.
(Translation: No - I'm not interested in going on a romantic date
or seeing where things lead. It will always lead to me leaving town
soon, which just gets old.)
- I am sex-positive. Sex is a contributive thing in my life, I
value my body and my sensual side. And I am very picky about who I
share myself with. (Translation: Nope, I'm not interested in
- Despite my wonderfully curvy feminine figure - I have never
strongly identified as female, and have been child free by choice
for a long while. Past partners have described me as a 'natural
post-op transgendered MTF'. My gender identity has always been a
bit fluid, but since removing the maternal parts with my
hysterectomy many years ago, I've better embraced being female. But
really, I'm just me.. and I love not having a gender be a key label
for who I am.
- I've been going to Burning Man and related regional events since
2007, and I immediately felt at home. (Translation: I value
creativity, artistic expression, radical self reliance, gift
economy and community.)
- I am attracted to amazing people. Gender, orientation, age, race,
hair color, body type, toe nail length and the like are ultimately
non-determining physical traits in my interest in others.
(Translation: I value you for you.)
