1) My age and location: 34, Atlanta, GA
2) My self-labels: queer, non-monogamous, trans, genderfree, fat-n-proud, social justice activist, artist, demisexual, expressive, anti-colonizing spiritual pagan Quaker.
3) My posts usually fall into the following categories: introspective reflections on my experiences and relationships; skill-shares about consent, intimacy, and ADHD; discussions of social justice. there are a lot of other things I write about but they're all very sporadic.
4) My favorite things to read on my friends list are: detailed self-examinations. I like social justice too but I have plenty of other sources for it -- here I NEED real intimacy, vulnerable sharing and efforts for growth.
5) My friendship dealbreakers are: slurs, fat-phobia, cis-centrism, selfishness when it gets to the level of damaging others.
6) I post entries on average once every [day, 2 days, week, etc]: 4 days, when I'm my usual self
7) I consider myself more knowledgeable than the average person (average from people I've known) on these topics: oppression, inclusion, intimacy, consent, gender, spirituality, christianity
8) If everyone alive would agree to change their behavior in a single way regarding ONLY me, I would want it to be: nobody notices when I'm naked, so I can always get away with no clothes if I want. I hate having to wear clothes, especially when it is hot.

Hi! I saw this entry on the livejournal home page, explored your journal a little, and added you because I enjoyed reading what little of your writing I've read so far, and think you have a unique perspective.

I might come back and do this quiz to try and find some more friends, but I'm still thinking on the "self-labels" question. I present and mostly interact with the world as straight/cis-female, but hopefully I don't come off as too cis-centric (I'd love to know when/if I do), but wouldn't really label myself that way...

Anyway, I won't be hurt if you aren't interested in my journal, but just wanted to let you know that I'm reading yours!

1) My age and location: 32, Maryland, US

2) My self-labels: Not really sure what this means.

3) My posts usually fall into the following categories:

- Meta. To elaborate, this includes reaction posts/reviews, thoughts on media tropes, and some fandom-specific things. (If you find any mention of fandom grating, I may not be the friend for you.)

- Satire/snarky social commentary (usually social media, but not always).

- Deeper life musings.

- Writing and other artsy stuff.

- Real life, but... I'm not one to recall everything I did today. My RL entries are either things I need to vent about, things I need to squee about, or more anecdotal.

4) My favorite things to read on my friends list are: It honestly depends more on the person, I think. I will say I definitely like having friends who talk about the sort of things I mentioned above.

5) My friendship dealbreakers are: The usual suspects, really - racism, homophobia, etc. Additionally, I find it hard to connect with people who only post bullet points.


6) I post entries on average once every [day, 2 days, week, etc]: Once a day, sometimes once every two days.

7) I consider myself more knowledgeable than the average person (average from people I've known) on these topics: Meh. I don't know the answer to that.

8) If everyone alive would agree to change their behavior in a single way regarding ONLY me, I would want it to be: Okay, I suck at hypothetical situation questions. Sorry. :/

1) My age and location: 28 (29 at the end of this month) and Japan
2) My self-labels: Not big on labels. A survivor? Pro-choice?
3) My posts usually fall into the following categories: Life in Japan, My family, my boyfriend, Pictures, Pictures, Pictures, weight-loss.
4) My favorite things to read on my friends list are: Every day life posts. You may find your life uneventful but to someone who can't walk a mile in your shoes, it can be the most interesting thing!
5) My friendship dealbreakers are: Close-mindedness, racism, liars.
6) I post entries on average once every [day, 2 days, week, etc]: Week. When I'm busy, I post bi-weekly.
7) I consider myself more knowledgeable than the average person (average from people I've known) on these topics: Absolutely nothing! I'd be lying if I said I possessed a vast amount of knowledge on anything. People seem to think I know a lot about a lot of things though.
8) If everyone alive would agree to change their behavior in a single way regarding ONLY me, I would want it to be: I don't think there is anything I would change about how people behave towards me. Everyone has been pretty amazing. Plus, if everyone treated me the similarly, it would be quite dull for me!

I'll give this a try!

1) My age and location: 35 and based in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
2) My self-labels: This isn't something I have a lot of practice at, but: Writer, poet, cis female, Feminist, sensitive, clear communicator, perceptive, neuroatypical in several ways. I Googled other words for 'explainer' and 'decoder' came up. I like that.
3) My posts usually fall into the following categories: I talk about my life which tends to fall into musings about mental health, long-distance relationships, whether to keep my current job or move, poetry readings I take part in, working through past memories.
4) My favorite things to read on my friends list are: The above! Um... Childhood memories, thought processes, mental health, friendship musings [with backstory, not just "Ugh, I hate Sam" with me not knowing who Sam is]. The story of how you got to where you are.
5) My friendship dealbreakers are: I suppose the usual isms. People who disrespect me personally. People who talk to me on my LJ in a way I have expressed that I am uncomfortable with. And people who never speak to me. Ever. Like, in over a year.
6) I post entries on average once every [day, 2 days, week, etc]: I aim for twice a week. Sometimes I only manage once.
7) I consider myself more knowledgeable than the average person (average from people I've known) on these topics: Communication, the workings of depression and recovery cycles, public speaking and audience response.
8) If everyone alive would agree to change their behavior in a single way regarding ONLY me, I would want it to be: I get caught up in miscommunication a lot because people don't listen/read the specifics of what I'm saying. So if people would respect me enough to listen and treat me the way I would like to be treated, that would be awesome. Repeatedly saying the same things gets to a person after a point.
