I spend a lot of time thinking about
Figuring out how to live my own life, rather than just, you know, get married, pop out kids, etc. It kind of amazes me how almost nobody ever really questions the life society tells us to live. Nearly all my friends from college are married and having kids already. I mean, that's fine if that's what you want for yourself, but I worry that some of them never really contemplated it, just assumed that's what you do.

Gender, feminism, to what extent people are unaware of their own biases. My facebook newsfeed is awash in arguments where people regurgitate talking points as if it's their original idea. I think when most people are confronted with whatever new issue of the day the media is obsessed about, the average person thinks about it for a second and a half and picks a side based on their "gut." Then they just grasp at somebody's talking points and then act like they've made a real informed decision and want to make sure everyone hears their side of it. Seriously, most people act like they are politicians, they want to make a gut call, then never change their mind, otherwise they'd be flipfloppers. It's all part of our anti-intellectual society that looks down on statistics and research and throws praise on fortune-cookie sound bites. /end rant
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking Absinthe, or cachaça, or G&T, or craft beer. Going to see some Jazz (tons of great spots in KC!).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a tattoo. It's a Walt Whitman quotation. No I'm not going to send you a picture of it.
You should message me if
You want to meet me or my boyfriend redditjp.

We're on here to meet people, make some new friends and, pardon the cliche, expand our horizons.
