Seriously, I am fucked.
My main pursuit in life is poetry, I consider myself a poet first and foremost. Both slam poetry and spoken word (and I would love to talk about the differences of the two with you). I'm pursuing making the St. Louis slam team and I'm in a group called River City Poets based out of Paducah, I spend a lot of time there as well. We'll be creating shows and having gigs soon. It is my second part time job. If you aren't an equalist and are homophobic or anti-men or anti-women's reproductive health or think people are bad for having sex with lots of people or for having hair where it grows we probably won't connect very well as friends. I don't believe in gender or race, I think they are constructed concepts cultures created. Though I believe in race in the way that I acknowledge how actively the construct affects everything in this world. Gender is straight up imaginary though, biological sex and presentation are the only things that affect anything. I would drink wine every day if I could. I live with my family and it is complicated. My cats are the pajamas. (snrrk)
I don't know what I want to do with my life overall, but I know I want to help people. I know that I want to push this world closer to equality. I try to be aware of subconscious conformity to any cultural standards and modify my behavior if I deem appropriate. I'm very counter-culture but I wouldn't call myself a non-conformist. There are some things our culture enforces that I am very happy about!
I also laugh, a lot. Humor is really important to me. Gotta be able to joke and be goofy and make bad jokes because that is my default state.
