45. I'm still pretty new
Edited on Fri May-13-05 11:11 PM by unsavedtrash
I am a 36 year old lesbian who has been with the same amazing person for 10 years. I was born, raised, and currently reside in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I was raised by deeply southern Baptist family members. Some of whom belong to or have previously belonged to the KKK. When I was 18 my father found out I was gay and tried to shoot me. My mom kicked me out because she thought if one were gay then one must have AIDS, and I was homeless for a while. I can fit in to most groups but feel most comfortable alone or with my partner and a few friends. I cannot stand anyone bad mouthing Israel but I respect the opinions of others too. Too often it breaks down to Anti-Semitism and I really can't stand that. I am pro-death penalty when completely sure the person is guilty, I believe in the right to own guns but see no reason to have these monstrosities that people are saying they need for protection or hunting. I hate that everything is outsourced and feel that unions are very important in the work place. Including in the service industry. I love kids but can't stand groups of them. I think one should say please, thank you, and hold the door for the next person. I will remove the hat from a males head if he doesn't take it off when entering my home. I help my elders, my mom, and if humanly possible anyone else in need. I am pro-choice and nothing can make me change my mind about that issue. I want to get married to the woman I love. I want to call it marriage. I want it to be accepted by the United States and for it to happen in a religious setting. Tell me marriage isn't important to you when you and your loved one are not allowed to marry. I can't stand that little sac of shit in the white house. I wish he had been on that plane instead of John John. Though I wish GWB a long life now so he can live with the fuck ups that his administrations have caused so many. I think that there is a religious war against gay people. I voted for Kerry because I thought he could make some well needed changes but I should have campaigned and voted for Clark. I like the guy. I can get pissy and I often have a dark sense of humor. Tell me nicely if I am offending you and I will do everything in my power to never do it again. Unless you are a republican, then I will find your weak spot or "button" and mess with it constantly. I just graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in Holocaust and Genocide Studies. I enjoy tracking hate groups, white power groups, and rabid nationalists. I like to know what makes these people tick. I like to debate them and then make fun of them because I know more about their supposed beliefs than they do and can debate them under the table. I am an INFP. I like to be alone a lot of the time. I love my animals and I love the South.
I think American's need to look at companies hiring immigrants on the cheap instead of ganging up on people who are only guilty of working to support their families.
