Aspirant genius bruiser and reluctant social justice-y type seeks similar.
Consequentialist, Rationalist, and Godless Liberal. If your ethical code includes the phrase "shut up and multiply," and you strive to be kind and lessen the suffering of others, we will get along wonderfully.
Food and Booze Nerd.(Former food writer, even)
My happy place is the intersection of sports and statistics.
I'm completely ridiculous but struggle to make that come across in writing.
I don't think I could identify as "Poly" with a straight face, but ethical non-monogamy is a pretty good description of where I am at the moment. I am in an open relationship with a wonderdul lady in Portland, but we are both open to pursuing serious (or less serious) relationships in our respective cities. I will happily over-communicate about this in person or messages, and to clarify, I am thoroughly uninterested in one night stands.
I wear about 17 different hats at work, and if you ask me about them I'll gladly talk your ear off.

You are the kind of person who actively challenges social injustice.
If I've still got to sell you on this, I dun goofed or we probably won't get along too well.
