introductions

I'm a 34 year old pre-op transwoman of the lesbian variety. I like cis- and trans- women (regardless of op status). I feel like I'm the only single transwoman in this town sometimes...and yet the only women I seem to meet that are single are either straight or lesbian/bisexual women who aren't attracted to transwomen (or just me, *shrug*). I haven't met many transwomen like myself here, and those I have are already in relationships...or we're just not into the same things.

Just wanted to say hi and find a community of like minded individuals as opposed to wanting to use the internet as a personals ad. Those are just the facts of why I tend to be a bit jaded and cynical.

I deejay in clubs around town...mostly of the Deathrock and Goth variety, but I have a love with a lot of different genres of music. My favorite genres just happen to be Punk, Post-Punk, Deathrock, Gothic Rock, old school Industrial, Krautrock, Dub/Reggae/Rocksteady/Ska, New Wave, Darkwave...pretty much what constitutes my subcultural identity.

I like graphic novels, Love and Rockets is my favorite.

I have a bs in physics and a ba in philosophy. I am pretty much a hardcore atheist and upholder of the scientific method and defender of the correct utilization of the word "quantum" from the new age kooks that give it some mystical connotation.

My favorite philosophy is existentialism/phenomenology. My lifelong struggle with my gender identity was integral with trying to understand the nature of human existence.

I have been associated with Soto Zen Buddhism in an academic and practitioner context. And for the ignorant masses, there is no conflict between being a atheist and incorporating Buddhist philosophy.

I am a libertarian socialist in the classic definition, what some people might call anarchism in general or anarcho-syndicalism in particular. I suppose though in all practical terms, I'd rather live within a more European Social Democracy as a compromise, but unfortunately I live in the US and well...need I explain how I have neither the means or ends to emigrate to another country. I like Spain, Barcelona especially. I have a romanticism about the Spanish Civil War.

I work in a library. I read mostly non-fiction, am obsessed with languages and linguistics. I like transgressive literature, even that which has made it into the mainstream (like Hunter S. Thompson, Chuck Palahniuk).

Anyway, hi.

Welcome!!! We have a lot common interests; may I friend you?
thanks, feel free too, I'm not the best at keeping up to date with lj
haaaaaaaay!
hola
Welcome!

I know your pain. I was single in that town, too.
thanks...ah, to find empathy
i've been figuring it will be a lot easier to be a single trans dyke in portland, or than where i am for the moment (rural california)... i'm sure that's still true, but i'm sorry to hear about yr single troubles.

i'm moving to portland with my two kids and my coparent/best friend/ex girlfriend in a month... you and i seem to have a number of interests in common; maybe we can hang out sometime? <3, k.
well, in all self-deprecation, it could just be ME! and not because I'm trans.

hope you've found a job up here before moving...it sucks to find work up here
it's probably not "you..." i lived in portland seven years ago and finding *friends* as an out trans woman was hard... i just assumed a) it might've changed somewhat and b) it has to be better than this town of 6,000 people.;)

as for a job... i have some child care work lined up and my coparent has a "regular" job up there. so that should buy me time to find something (i'm not picky).
yeah...the rational side of my brain agrees with you...the emotional side just wants to lash out but then my rational brain takes over and says "no, then you would be a CRAZY TRANNY"

that's why I take out my frustration behind the turntables.
