Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
studying human rights & asian & middle eastern cultures. i
like scotch, global health equity, americana/folk, and bojack
horseman. i've worked on robot chicken and as a sexual health
educator. i have an ugly brick of a rat named the great ratsby and
i love him. i don't know if i'm more scared of people who don't
read, or people who only read things written by white men. my
friends most often describe their first impression of me using the
words "terrifying" and "intimidating."
"If love is but a chemical illusion that indoctrinates us to pass
down our genes — our only glimpse at a semblance of immortality —
why haven’t I gotten laid in a month? Every damn time I swipe right
it’s a Tinder match."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
writing things, bartending, and bingewatching cooking shows.
I’m really good at

Help your potential matches find common interests.
gayatri spivak on the postmodern condition, the toast, haruki
murakami, william gibson, tamora pierce, james baldwin, audre
lorde, judith butler, sci fi, nature documentaries, gory horror,
and kitchen nightmares. my dream aesthetic is a girl walks home
alone at night.
i dig spicy food, a good burrito, and drunk face-sized pizza from
i like folk, americana, sad people playing acoustic guitar, witty
rap, sad rap, angry punk girls, and almost anything else.
my favorite artist is lorna simpson. postmodern feminist art shapes
a lot of my worldview.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
cheesy rice cakes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how to be more awesome
how much work I should probably be doing
why i always want a Hot Pocket even though i know they're
how many wealthy guys on this site don't realize that Jay Gatsby is
not a role model
whether i should go into academia
the reclamation of female vanity
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
netflix binging, going out, watching a movie with friends, or drunk
and criticizing kyriarchies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once peed on my school's law library.
update: I twice peed on my school's law library.
i have a chrome extension that replaces the word snake people with
"snake people" and i laugh every time.
i found a stickies note i wrote myself three years ago:
"i want to read about women who shit and eat and forget they have
armpit hair in a tanktop on the subway and who don’t know as much
about palestine as they should but know far too much about blazing
saddles. i want to read about women who make shitty life choices
and good life choices and whose strength sometimes is only that
they keep existing day after day. i need to read about women like
me because my life is built out of narratives. i want to study like
hermione granger and run like keladry of mindelan and flirt like
elizabeth bennett and these stories are how we learn our social
cues, how we build our own narratives in our head to test out in
real life. i want to read about a fat bisexual girl who falls in
love in a complicated half-assed sort of way because that’s how i
do it and i want some societal input on how we’d all go about it."
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you are an art thot.
you wanna get nerdy over spicy food.
you're a phd candidate who can send me essays on
postcolonialism/race/queerness/gender/whatever makes you
you want to go to the met.
you wanna show off how cool you are instead of how you think i'm
i am awful at starting conversations and pretty much only send out
corny jokes and bad flirty gifs of zach galifianakis, so i probably
won't message you first unless you have like really really hot
if you live outside the NYC area i probably won't respond because i
just don't have the energy or time to travel for a date,
if you answered yes to engaging in rape play or fantasies you need
to move right along. don't message me about this, i'm not
interested in discussing your justifications for it, and i've had
to have too many conversations about it on here. sexual choices are
not exempt from critique or from participation in larger dangerous
social norms, rape play is different from submission, and that is
seriously all i'm willing to say on the matter.
not interested in couples, group play, or Doms.
