33. I consider myself a Progressive and Secular Humanist.
According to the neighborhood right wing crazies, I'm a threat to society. I tried fighting back for some time, but nothing ever worked. I reported my direct neighbors for violent comments directed at myself, but I mostly ignore and avoid everyone to the best of my ability.
