good thing, there are people smarter than me, with good words:
"I want you to tell me about every person you’ve ever been in love with. Tell me why you loved them, then tell me why they loved you... See, I wanna know more than what you do for a living. I wanna know how much of your life you spend just giving. And if you love yourself enough to also receive sometimes."
To know me is to know the people that I love. My community, my friends are my tether, my fencing post, my floating device, my fucking rocket launcher.
if you are not a feminist, if you don't practice active consent, don't bother.
if you are kinky, i'm interested.
i am NOT bisexual, but i AM queer. and femme, and fucking fierce.
i'm attracted to a lot of different bodies and genders. femme, crip, butch, trans*, to name a few. more than anything your anti-racist, anti-oppressive politic, and queer as fuck personality is what will draw me to you.
my life is this strange combination of really slow and quiet, on the heels of being really loud and fast for the last few years. so
sometimes the loud and fast creeps in, but mostly, i'm settling into a new way of being in the world, which is exciting, scary, and feels really great.
real interaction is better than this ego essay. message me.
i spend a lot of time thinking about transformative justice, community accountability, access intimacy, intersectionality, masculine privilege and femme responsibility.
