Poking around my blog is a better way to get a sense of the kind of person I am than is reading any of these boxes: http://imsuchanafroholic.com
But if you'd rather have boxes, that's cool too. Some things about me, let's go: My name's Maya. I'm 24, a person who both loves to talk and loves to listen, a cuddler, a reader, a music-lover, and a person who is known to cry at just about anything. I prefer the term queer to bi, but I'm waiting for OkC to catch up. Also I'm pretty femme (6 of my 9 pictures feature me in a dress, lol), but generally speaking am not here for gender binaries or gender roles in any way, shape, or form. I'm a sociologist, a feminist, and a race scholar, but just because I would love to deconstruct all the things wrong with "Rack City" doesn't mean I won't dance to it. I enjoy a good beer but amaretto sour is my go-to drink and I will never turn down a free shot. I love to laugh. I contain multitudes.
Open relationship is also somewhat of a misnomer, but I'm proud of OkCupid for trying. I am exploring polyamory these days. So far I've found being in multiple romantic/sexual relationships at a time to be quite successful, highly rewarding, and full of learning experiences, but I want to make sure I'm really up front about it with new folks. So, there's that. I welcome all sorts of questions about it.
My house has a cat. She does not actually belong to me, though recently I've begun to feel like she has adopted me. Most days it seems like it's the cat's world and we just live in it... Anyway, if you're allergic, take note.
