Evil Ashie! :P
1. Are you more feminine or masculine?
Um…both? Neither? I honestly have no idea how to answer this one.
3. What’s your favorite color?
Either red or black.
5. What’s your greatest flaw?
Oh boy…um…I get stressed out way too easily sometimes, especially at work.
7. What are you really, really good at?
Apparently, I’m a really good writer.
9. What’s something people have tried to force you to do?
My first couple years in college, everyone was trying to get me to go out and party every weekend. Just party after party after party…which was never really my thing. Some people just didn’t seem to get that.
11. Describe the way you dress in one sentence.
Some weird combination of relaxed and country, with a lot of NASCAR and sports rolled in for good measure.
13. What is the most insulting thing anyone has said to you?
Does being told I care too much count?
15. What color is your hair?
Brown. Boring, I know.
17. Is men’s rights a thing?
Yes, but not in the sense everyone thinks. MRAs are just sexist little shitstains who are trying to hide behind their backwards views, all the while ignoring actual gender-based issues that affect men (the vast majority of which are products of patriarchy).
19. Can science explain everything, eventually?
I think it can, but even if it can’t, I still think the efforts are worthwhile. In the constant struggle between knowledge and ignorance, I side with knowledge every single time.
21. How do you feel about the school system?
Oh, boy, the heavy-hitting questions now…I think the issues surrounding the school system (the public school system, specifically) all boil down to resources — specifically, the lack of them — and the fact that we value test scores far more than actual education. There are several reasons for this (and they all have to do with corporate profit and other nefarious aims), but I think the school system is worthwhile and in desperate need of saving.
23. What is art?
Certainly not anything I do, lol. But seriously…I think art is a series of perfect imperfections that combine to create something meaningful and striking. That can be done with a pencil, a paint brush, a keyboard, a mound of clay…just about anything can be art these days.
25. What happens after we die?
We become Powdered Toast Man’s fart crystals. In all seriousness, I believe our souls leave this body and embark on the next part of their journey. Which might mean after I die, I come back as a porcupine. Or a mime. Not sure which.
27. Is there good in everyone?
I really want to say yes, but I know better. There are some verifiable wastes on oxygen on this planet, and they are irredeemable.
29. Is human life only valuable because our society makes it?
On the flip side, society has deemed other life not valuable. Why else would we devote entire industries to killing animals for our own benefit, be it food or clothing or otherwise? Besides, I have a hard time believing society values human life when we still have the death penalty. Something tells me this “human life is valuable” line is something anti-choicers feed us because it sounds good.
31. What gender do you prefer?
Depends on the context of the question; romantically, I prefer women. Sexually, I have no preference — just an ever-growing list of things I’m open to. Outside of those two things, I think gender is an entirely social construct, but someone’s gender identity is important to them and should be respected.
33. Could you love someone you found ugly?
Chances are, if I find someone ugly, I’m not talking about their looks, and as such, would not be able to love them.
35. Favorite eye color?
Green eyes can be really, really pretty.
37. Describe, personality-wise, what your ideal boy/girlfriend would be like?
Loyal, dependable, funny, intelligent, capable of both initiating and holding a conversation, regardless of subject matter.
39. What do you look for—brains or looks?
Brains, hands down.
41. How much of an age cap can you handle?
Generally speaking, if there’s more than a 10-year difference, I get a little uncomfortable. I’m not even sure why, really.
43. Could you forgive a cheater?
45. Right now, you could call the person you like/love (if you aren’t dating/engaged/married already), or show up at their front door, and just confess or kiss them or whatever. What’s stopping you?
That’s the last thing I need to be doing. And frankly, I don’t think I even want to.
