My self-summary
I'm genderqueer, queer (attracted to people of all genders), and a feminist. I'm a switch, and on any measure of personality I tend to come out six of one, a half dozen of the other.

I am a sucker for enthusiasm - anything that involves in-depth knowledge and overly excited hand motions is sure to get my attention. I love the new passions new people bring into my life - recently I've been attending local comedy shows and discovered the band Delux thanks to new friends.

I myself am very enthusiastic about bicycle adventures, singing at any time in almost any place, queer community, building shit, my hedgehog (who recently became a grandpappy!), being a grumpy feminist, NBC's Hannibal, drinking excessive amounts of tea, rambling on foot through Portland streets, and doing fun things at which I am not very skilled (rollerskating, instrument playing, quilting, socializing).

Reading books is sexy! I am a lazy terrible cook! Trying new things is terrifyingly amazing! Pie is the best! Walking upright is hard! Canoeing is fantastico! I love camping! I fail at color coordinated outfits! I win at making expressive noises with my face!

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. 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.

Random facts: I wrote my senior anthropology thesis in college on alien cultures in science fiction novels. I volunteer at the Oregon Zoo. I have SO MANY colored Sharpies.

If you're a long-time member of the Awkward Army, I am Make-out Spartacus. If you don't get the reference, you should probably read more Captain Awkward.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at a nonprofit that provides community inclusion services for adults with developmental disabilities. It's awesome. I love my job, and plan to do it for several more years while I figure out the wheres and whats of graduate school, and the where and what of organic farming education as well. Or possibly planning a launch-off into social science research/activism abroad. Or here. Or translating some constellations into an address and going through a stargate. Whatever.

Ideally I'd like to be spending more of my life snorgling (and snogging and snuggling) a special human or two.
I’m really good at
misplacing stuff, and displaying common courtesy. Also crafting feminist tweets, dancing even when everyone IS watching, and adapting to the linguistic norms of any given group of humans.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Booooks: For Whom the Bell Tolls, anything by Terry Pratchett, CJ Cherryh's Faded Sun series, Dautcher's Down a Narrow Road, anything by Oscar Wilde, and more books then I could possibly come up with at the moment.
Currently Reading: The People's History of the United States, White Queen

Movies and Shows: Stargate, Condorman, the Princess Bride, The Fifth Element, and Velvet Goldmine are my top five most watched movies.
I love Farscape, M*A*S*H, and am working my way through all of Star Trek (currently in the middle of Deep Space Nine).
Welcome to Night Vale - my favorite podcast bar none. The live show at Lewis and Clark was AMAAZIIING.

Music: I like to listen to stuff. Lots of stuff. I can be quite lazy about finding new music, so I treasure people who will actively introduce me to stuff. If I like you, I will actually try your recs without being coerced.

Food: apple cider, WAFFLES, pesto and heirloom tomatoes, bacon, pineapple.
I am an omnivore and know how to be sensitive about dietary preferences/needs when they are different from mine. I live with people who are, variously, vegan, gluten intolerant, soy intolerant, dairy intolerant, and allergic to various items, and we cook communal meals, so I really mean that. I am mildly allergic to lentils. Everyone agrees this is utterly bizarre.
The six things I could never do without
Knitting supplies, fluffy blankets, thumbs, my hedgehog, my battered copy of the Hobbit, and noms.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Political fuckery. Twinkle lights. Identity. Tea. Xena the Warrior Princess. Sunshine. Books. Things far too complicated to make a pithy blurb.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sleeping. I work on Saturdays, what can I say? On my "Friday" nights, which are Saturdays to you, I try to be at parties or making them. I have variable levels of success.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was twelve, I once saw Shel Silverstein in a coffeeshop on Martha's Vineyard. Or rather, I saw a sketchy-looking dude with a huge beard and a baseball cap who gestured me over. When I went outside to avoid him, a woman nearby ask me if I had gotten his autograph...Sorry, Mr. Silverstein.
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 25–35
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You should message me if you want to go on cheap Portland adventures, and you like humans who pretty much say whatever they're thinking. If you can enjoy very spicy foods and walk ridiculous distances even when other options are available, just cuz, we will get on pretty well.
