I love fun and humour, and tend to try and make the people I'm with smile, laugh, or just feel better about themselves. I'm not the funniest person you'll ever meet, but I like to think my dry wit has me above average. I struggle with depression and existential despair, and sometimes humour helps me keep going.
Since social justice and liberalism have been so tightly welded in American society's psyche, I am a flaming liberal. And I also identify as a third-wave feminist, though recent conversation about the legitimacy of male feminism has me thinking deeply about this label. Suffice to say I think justice will only happen when the oppression of women and minorities ends. I care about people, ok?
I love to read (and have over a thousand books) and write (fiction mostly) and want to become a published author someday.
My dog is my best friend. Even though she's a jerk to me all the time.
I love anything to do with gender studies. Recently I've also gotten into philosophy.
I know this turns a lot of people off me, which is sad, but I'm transgendered (currently identifying as androgynous). And I completely understand why it would be difficult to date me because of that, so I try not to judge.
