My self-summary
Queer, leftist, scientist.

Can't stand individualism and those who refuse the occasional relative discomfort such that those around them can feel basal comfort.

I prefer regular productive confrontation/dialogue for the sake of growth and avoiding the unspoken resentment that ultimately reaches a breaking point.

I try to balance emotional reasoning (allowing myself to feel rage, sadness, joy, limerence, apathy) and observation-based judgments (not white boy Eurocentric "logic," but dissociative distance to recognize the sources, benefits, and dangers of my raw emotions).

I enjoy both fleeting and long-haul encounters/friend/relation/partnerships, and recognize the former often become the latter and the latter can and sometimes should, in fact, end.

Strictly non-monogamous - into experiencing the full range of romantic, sexual, intimate, platonic love and whatever else has yet to be discovered or articulated. Responsible practice of this looks different to different folx, I can get into what that looks like for me in a message or in person.

I sound real serious on here but I also am warm and friendly and funny and enjoy getting good n fucked up and dancing at home and in public
What I’m doing with my life
Just moved to Knoxville from Memphis for veterinary school. Current plan is to do ethical and sustainable food (and/or material) animal work that promotes animal, worker, and environmental well being. Hoping to get to Cuba this summer for inspiration.

Before this I was in Memphis doing a masters program, organizing (labor and feminism mostly, but participated in lots of other movement work as well), and general debauchery.
