Almost my entire adult life has been spent in the Upper Midwest--first Chicago (for undergrad), then Minneapolis (for law school), and it's definitely a part of the country with a special place in my heart. I still miss Minneapolis like crazy, especially its comfortable summers, snowy (not soggy) winters, amazing local music and theater scenes, and open-minded, friendly, unpretentious, fun-loving, progressive people.
I love to travel, even just a short trip to get me out of NYC for a few days. I'm totally open to meeting people beyond the metro area, and if you're in Philadelphia, Northampton, New Haven, Providence, Boston, Baltimore, Albany, DC, or anywhere a BoltBus or Amtrak ride away, I'd love to hear from you!
A big thank you to OKC for adding more gender and orientation options! Of the ones available "queer" works the best for me, but I tend to call myself "unlabeled." I've found myself mostly attracted to women, transmen, and genderfluid/genderqueer folks, but I generally see attraction as evolving or fluctuating. I present on the masculine side of things, but I'm all for the abolition of the gender binary. I practice ethical non-monogamy (some people prefer the term polyamory), as do many of my friends.
Pronouns: he/him or they/them
ENTP, GGG (although I find Dan Savage's biphobia/transphobia problematic).
I'm nonreligious, although I was raised Jewish and still consider myself culturally Jewish.
Politically, I lean pretty far to the left. I consider myself an antiracist feminist who would be a member of a socialist/anticapitalist political party if we had a viable one here. I use words like "cissexist", "ableist," and "kyriarchy" in everyday conversation. I love a good argument, but I'm not interested in dating libertarians, Republicans, or any other kind of right-winger; our basic values would just be too fundamentally different for an intimate relationship to work.
I rather enjoy smoking weed; I don't mind if you don't, but it would be thoroughly awesome if you did.
Because I miss the little "three words" thing at the top of my profile: I am open-minded, inquisitive, and surreal
