I've entered a very social-justice-conscious phase of my life, and work in a related field. If the word "feminist" is an f-word to you, don't bother. If you think people who are careful about their language are just "politically correct oversensitive" whatevers, don't bother. I'm committed to non-violent communication and unraveling the kyriarchy, both by unlearning toxic beliefs and by standing up when someone around me says something oppressive. If that would piss you off, don't bother.
My guts have opinions about human beings - specifically whether or not we should be friends. I am looking for a fellow gut-listener whose gut likes me. This person would probably be the kind of person who likes Captain Awkward's advice, likes to run around in rainstorms, eats tuna fish and grilled cheese as dietary staples, and doesn't let anyone tell hir what to like or not to like, not even me.
I am a sucker for geek-a-thons - anything that involves complicated intellectual topics (from the movements of electrons to deciphering Foucault) and overly excited hand motions is sure to get my attention.
things that make me happy: people in vests, people in combat boots, aloof cats that roll over when petted, risen bread dough, root beer floats, napping during a rainstorm, cuddling fully clothed on a cold day, plaid flannel shirts, colorful pens, cute haircuts, pierced eyebrows, getting really cold and taking a hot shower and then getting into a warm bed to nap during the day in the sunshine, watching people hulahoop, people unashamed of their quirks, and the slight smell of cigarette smoke in a wool coat.
things that make me frowny: wars, stereotypes, the US economy, humidity, people who say "I'm just being an asshole." (Um...then maybe stop?), gender essentialism
I am genderqueer, not that Okcupid has an option for that. Although my body is coded by the world as "female," I have no internal sense of being a man or a woman - I am a person, and what people choose to project onto me because of my anatomy are their assumptions - not my responsibility. I bind my chest occasionally, have an odd haircut, and am romantically and sexually attracted to humans all over the gender spectrum. I realize that, due to the intense gendering in our culture, using appropriate language with trans* and genderqueer folks takes some getting used to, and am totally willing to accomodate that learning curve. I would appreciate not being referred to with female-coded nouns (girl/woman/lady/mistress). If you just treat me like a person, we should get on fine.
