-Far left, politically. I speak about immigrant rights, anti-racism activism, pro-lgbt, fair trade, anti-sweatshops, pro-choice, anti-animal testing both medically and cosmetically, anti-fur, pro-environment, anti-war, workers' rights, anti-violence. I have to mention that I am not a feminist, I am an egalitarian. I believe sexism exists on both sides of the gender lines. I also have to mention that I do post petitions sometimes, I do talk about them. I didn't vote for Obama or anybody because on Nov. 4th, 2008 - I found nobody *I* believe in. I'm more to the left than a democrat, so if you don't want to hear me talk about how I disagree with some of what Obama is doing, then you are best suited not adding me. If you can take that I do not dislike him as a person, but as a politician, then go ahead. Do as you will. Remember, I am not a Republican and I probably couldn't get along with the best of them. So, if you saw this post, are a Republican non-Obama person: Our reasons are so different for not liking him, I doubt we'd get along. I am not close-minded, I wish you well, but I am looking for people who I can have the most relaxing environment possible on LJ with.
I speak about:
-My disillusionment with Hollywood. I do like some of it, I can't lie, but to say that I am not increasingly disappointed with Hollywood as a whole would be wrong and against everything I stand for.
-Being biracial (Caucasian and Native American, Cherokee and Crow. No long-lost Native Cherokee princess grandmother to speak of, it is very direct, not the "one drop" rule). I do speak of this at times. I speak of the lack of representation of Native American people in Hollywood, and other people of color, and that when we -ARE- represented 9 times out of 10, it is inaccurate and/or racist.
-Soap operas. General Hospital is my get away.
-Suffering from OCD and being an Epileptic.
-Pursuing the GED, hoping to pass the math. I failed the math the first time, passed everything else.
-Horror. Yet, I love the gothic/alternative scene. I love goth rock, I love industrial, I love synthpop. I love alternative fashion and photography, but I hate horror movies.
-Anything tested on animals and am hoping to find people who are extremely passionate about the topic of animal testing, both MEDICALLY AND COSMETICALLY. I find a lot of people actually believe in this practice and it disturbs me. Nothing disturbs me more than a vegan buying Proctor & Gamble owned products.
-People who wear fur.
-America's Next Top Model.
-Any type of abuse: animal, child, domestic.
-PETA. I do not like the way the charity operates. I also don't like the Humane Society for working with Michael Vick.
-Cute little alien cartoons.
-Cheesy reality shows - hey, it's an escape and it causes laughter.
-Cartoony movies, cute movies. As much as I dislike Hollywood, I do like movies that can take my mind off things.
-The movie, Stand and Deliver.
-Anything artistic: photography, dance, artwork, anything.
Don't add me if:
-You are racist, homophobic, the usual.
-Cruel to animals (obviously <3)
-You are violent.
-You are brash or overly arrogant: I don't need the negativity.
-You believe in animal testing. I am serious, this is my hugest, hugest thing about this whole veganism/vegetarian thing. I don't believe in being cruel to any animal, but I'd love to meet vegans and vegetarians who are actually you know, not just abstaining from meat, but all cruelty.
-You are anti-immigrant or anti-lgbt.
-You have to have the most expensive clothes on the block.
-You insult people who are overweight or don't fit your physical standards.
-Are into heavy partying. I hate drugs, alcohol, and smoking (though, as hypocritical as it may seem, I am pro-marijuana legalization for health reasons). I have friends who drink, I just am trying to aim out there for people who do not. I am NOT straightedge, I am just living the sober lifestyle and would like to find people who have that in common!
-Comment on my friends only entry or I won't be adding you.-
