I proudly identify as an ardent feminist and socialist, and feel a lot of affinity for the queer community, but am painfully aware of the fact that I inhabit a body that carries with it a lot of privilege that I unwittingly exercise when I enter any space. One of my current life's goals is to find ways to continually subvert that privilege and be the best possible feminist--which is to say, the best possible human--that I can be.
I'm also currently in a relationship with a wonderful girl who lives across the country, and we've agreed to be open until we move to Illinois in October. Currently looking for something strictly short-term/casual.
Other facts about me:
-I'm pretty much always singing. This has actually gotten me fired from a temp job.
-I know it wasn't written for me, but Audre Lorde's "The Uses of the Erotic" encompasses most of what I believe to be true about the human spirit.
-When I watch the "La Marseillaise" scene from Casablanca, I clutch the edge of my seat, get short of breath, and tear up. Every. Damn. Time.
-I like knitting. A lot. If you ask, I will show you the scarves I made.
-My love for the movie "Die Hard" is in no way ironic. Take a look at the other movies on my list of favorites and you'll see why I think this bears mentioning.
-Madonna's daughter personally congratulated me when she found out I had lost my virginity. I am absolutely not making that up.
