My self-summary
"While there is a lower class, I am in it, while there is a criminal element, I am of it, and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free."

- Eugene V. Debs

I'm smart, witty, and probably making that up. Like what even is linoleum, right?

Who am I? I'm a native child of la Ciudad de Nueva York, 50% Boricua 100% awesome.

Marxist, and that's very important to me. Been down with the struggle for mad long tho. Oppressors need not apply.

I'm also a huge fan of punk and metal, and try to go to shows as much as possible. I absolutely love classic punk, horrorpunk and riot grrl. Shoot me some good bands.

And I absolutely adore linguistics. Talk to me about Sprachbunds, Sociolects or Allophonic variation in Dzongkha (no seriously do that, I've never met anyone who studied anything about Dzongkha!).

So come, be my friend, my lover, or all three. . .wait.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How hard it is to find fellow punks/baby bats because everyone dresses like us now.

Where can I get some toast.

The effects of political consciousness on whiskey, and why that makes it taste better.

Who are you people and why are you looking at me like that?

Why people conflate style with grammar and what I can do to get some linguistics 101 into people's lives. (Fun fact, the most common way you're being classist/racist is by critiquing the way someone types/speaks).
On a typical Friday night I am
What does typical even mean anymore?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Former rocky horror kid, so I've probably taken my clothes off for less.

Strike me down and I shall become more powerful than you can ever imagine.
You should message me if
You want to go on a wibbly wobbly timey wimey adventure.

You want to tell me I'm pretty.

You want to start a FATE, DnD or GURPS group, or all three.

You make your entire life into art.

I'm open to polyamourous folks but I'd prefer other radically non-monogamous folks. Love comes in many forms and you folks are all beautiful.

Nicht polizei und soldaten, danke schönn.
