Well first off...now that trump is elected and the fucking conservative repubs have taken over all power I am working on a two year plan to get my affairs in order so I'll have the option to move to Vancouver, BC or europe or New Zealand or somewhere outside of the u.s. The next two years are critical and that's when I'll make my decision. If conservative values and laws are forced on this country by bills being passed the republican controlled house and Senate and are signed into law by this crazy, unqualified, sexually assaulting, thin skinned, pathological lying, race baiting, insecure, bullying, self-centered, out-of-touch, not very intelligent, four times bankrupt, shitty businessman republican president (who lost the popular vote and is a loser by 2 million votes), and these laws are upheld by the lifetime appointed conservative republican judges that have taken the federal and supreme court vacancies (that rightly should have been filled by Obama nominees that were denied by republicans the last two years) I will probably leave. And don't feel bad if you voted for Trump or a third party candidate or didn't vote at all...at least you didn't vote for the lady who used her personal email server (said with sarcasm). If you feel like moving might be an option for you also talk to me. Maybe we can do it together. If you live outside the u.s. talk to me. Maybe I'd be willing to move to where you are. Or if you're just awesome and can't bring yourself to leave the u.s. then maybe you can convince me to stay and we can live here in mutual misery together.
Are you picking up on a problem that with the Republicans controlling all three branches of government (esp the judicial with lifetime appointments)? There are no checks and balances. No way to stop them from forcing their conservative right wing christian agenda on us...or prevent them from changing voting laws to disenfranchise democratic voters and keep a Republican senate majority for years just as they did by gerrymandering the districts that will keep a Republican majority in the house of Representatives for decades. Goodbye Roe v Wade. Goodbye women, minority, and LGB equality. Goodbye free press. Goodbye to a million other things...btw, Missouri is in just as much trouble with a republican governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, veto proof majorities in both the state house and state senate. The only bright shining democratic star for Missouri is u.s. senator Claire McCaskill who has said she won't run again in 2018. I love St. Louis (aka "the 'Lou" aka "the STL" aka "the 314") but I hate Missouri. It breaks my heart to maybe leave but I can't live in a place that is so unreasonably conservative. STL will always be home in my heart.
Anyway, clearly I'm still very unhappy with the election. First, STL lost the Rams (republican was responsible. Thanks Kroenke). Then there was poisined tap water in Michigan (state republicans responsible for that too). Then Brexit (see we're not the only ones fucking our own country and creating havoc around the world) and now this u.s. election (republicans fucking us here too). As John Oliver says "fuck 2016." What an awful year. And since I'm not a cubs fan I won't miss 2016. I'd love to ring in a fresh, promising, new year full of promise with a new lady in my life!
I'm silly, but thoughtful. I like to laugh and try to be an optimist. I like people, but I also can't stand them. I'm reasonably intelligent, science minded, and not at all religious. I'm kind and giving. I work hard, but I'm a procrastinator. I love exercising and good meals. I like nakedness. My sense of humor doesn't involve always cutting down the person I'm with, and I won't tolerate others who do that to me. I'm attracted to women who are confident and make no apologies for their strong sexuality because I make no apologies for mine. I believe most morality is relative. I'm always a work in progress; like right now I'm working on better listening skills and less talking.
Current events that are the most important: absolute separation of church and state, pro-choice, pro-gun control/reasonable gun legislation, pro-vaccination without exemption for religion or anything else except medical exemption, pro-sunblock, universal free basic healthcare for all, and sex+.
I'm from STL but have also lived in several other parts of the country. I went to grad school and decided my field wasn't for me. Post doctorate, I now work for an airline and can fly anywhere in the U.S. for free! Guess what? If I think you're awesome I might fly out to see you! (unless you live in St. Louis. I'll just drive then)
Some people might first notice that I really am 6'2" tall. I've been told a couple of times on dates that I'm the first person they've gone out with that actually looks like his pics. I guess many people post old outdated or misleading pics of themselves, and many guys are not truthful about their height on this site. I don't know why people do that. Surely, their end goal is to meet someone in person, and that person will see that they lied about their height and body type, and posted misleading pics.
Also, some people think I look like Chris Pratt when i have beard stubble...and some think I look like Derek Theler. What do you think?

Ok, maybe put the family thing first, but who are we kidding? The sex thing is really more exciting. So that first, then the family thing. .oh wait oxygen is more important. So, oxygen second. The sex thing first, then oxygen, the crap about the family, everything else, and i would like to add at the end: all the children of the world holding hands and singing in perfect harmony.
What else do I think about a lot? Why would a woman get lip implants? So people think they regularly have fist fights at bars resulting in perpetual fat lippery?
Also, why do people insist on using the term "queer"? I'm LGB and T friendly and I hate the term "queer". Its ugly, unnecessary, and reminds me of when I was growing up and the bullies used to call my friends and me queers while they were kicking our asses. I liken it to the N-word. Let's say instead sex+ or GSD (Gender and Sexual Diversity). So much nicer sounding than queer. So, please don't use the Q-word on your profile if you plan to contact me. Thanks (-:
All kidding aside, sometimes the messages I send are unintentionally stupid awful, content wise. I tend to over think and say something long winded and sometimes just stupid in an attempt to try to stand out from the million other guys on here...although my goal is to be funny or clever. Just trust that you'll probably like me in person. Most people do. And then someday we can laugh at my silly attempt to interest you!
