I get a lot of confused looks at first. I don't like rules I find
unimportant. I do like openness, communication, and trust.
I am a touch slut and a cuddle bear. I like hugs and head rubs and

A friend once told me "the purpose of art is to shed light the
human plight." But from my interpretation of this, I feel like some

some buzzword soup:
Potter and the Methods of Rationality
