Hi! My name is whatever you decide to call me, I am 25 years old and living in Plainfield, I am pansexual and in an open relationship, I don't "identify" as any specific gender (though my presentation varies depending on the situation), and I'd like to make some buddies in the area!

I just moved here this past May, and I am having a hard time meeting fun-loving liberal folks who haven't died inside.

Also, I am awkward. Say hi to me!

Love and Namaste,

Academic survey for same-sex couples [29 Sep 2007|01:21pm]

Hi all!

I am a senior economics student at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana. For my thesis, I am researching how the division of labor within same-sex couples and gender expression affect wage differentials based on sexual orientation. To help understand how GLBTQ couples divide their household labor and how this affects gender expression, I am conducting a small, completely anonymous survey of GLBTQ people currently in relationships of a year or more. These survey results will be used to empirically look at hours worked in the home versus in the marketplace.

I would greatly appreciate your participation in the following survey. The survey should take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to fill out. All responses will be kept completely confidential. If you would like a copy of the results or have questions about this survey, please email me at gorsuma@earlham.edu.

I am hosting the survey with SurveyMoney at Click Here to take survey

Thank you for your time and consideration!

Indiana Equality [24 Apr 2005|11:06am]

Hello. I'm new to this community as of today.

I am looking into starting a chapter of Indiana Equality in the LaGrange County area. I was wondering if anyone in this community lives in the area and would be interested in joining me in this endeavor.

all the best deceptions [25 Aug 2004|11:31am]

[ mood | hopeful ]

I'm never good at introductions. it has to be one of the things that i am worst at. i can never come up with anything appealing or mind-luring to keep anyone interested. hi, i'm kat. i'm 19 and live in vevay, IN. don't know where that is..? don't bother looking on a map b/c in most cases, it's not even on one (seriously). but to give you SOME sort of ensight of where vevay is located, i like about an hour from Cincy and about an hour and some odd mins from Louisville (depending on how fast i drive of course! >;P ) i am currently single, and yes... currently looking. i don't have a sexual preferance, meaning i don't like to label myself. good people are hard to find rather they're male or female. there's nothing wrong with wanting someone who isn't fake no matter what their sexual pref is. i've been with girls for pretty much most of my life. i recently broke it off with my last bf (he was also my first b/f *haha*). things just didnt seem to work well for me.

in my spare time i like to write about anything and everything. although lately i haven't had much inspiration. i work alot. i work at Kroger's deli/bakery. hey, it's money. i am currently in the process of moving out and moving to Hanover, IN. (still the same distance from Louisville and Cincy though). kinda just looking for someone. whether anything will develop or not, i do not know. but i am willing to take the steps to get to that point.

if anyone is up for hanging out, email me at insane_sanity03@yahoo.com you can get my other info on my profile.

and last but not least... |pics|Collapse )</center>

i'm at work right now. ;)

yesterday, i talked a whole lot on aim with rachel p, a yalie friend of mine that used to be gay. she's now, in her words, "turned toward jesus and away from the sin of homosexuality". she likes to cite paul's letters in romans 1:26-27 for her reasoning why homosexuality is a sin, and i definitely reject such.

i mean,
she recites from a translation. she's not reciting from the original hebrew. any translation for western society is exactly that: a translation for/from western society that (just) might be skewed to reflect the beliefs of the western translators. synonyms are synonyms, but synonyms still carry different connotations. for example, in learning a new language at all, one'll notice that some words just don't translate from one language to the other. i notice this all too often when i want to translate from spanish into english.

yet, let's not use that as a simple way out. i'll go ahead and assume the english translation as being correct, yet i don't think i'll want to assume her interpretation as being flawless.

i give her a common interpretation from more liberal christians of that same passage. it, in fact, is more thought out than her simple argument stating that "a man shall not lie with another man", blah, blah, blah:

she's selecting verses yet leaving out the total message, grrr. the verses are unrelated to homosexuality! the complete passage actually describes how ex-christians first engaged in orgiastic, presumably heterosexual, sexual activities. later, paul writes that god "gave them over" to something new: this being homosexual behavior. this, though, implies that throughout their lifetimes, these ex-christians were of a heterosexual orientation and engaged only in heterosexual sex. god had then influenced them so that they'd, then, engage in homosexual sex. this was, for them, a very unnatural activity, of course, and they were thus admonished because they engaged in sexual activity which was unnatural, again, for them.

for one of a heterosexual orientation, homosexual behavior, sure, is unnatural, perverted, shameful, and indecent. the passage, though, in romans is not a condemnation of homosexual behavior. rather, it disapproves of sexual behavior that is against one's basic nature (homosexual behavior by heterosexuals and even heterosexual behavior by homosexuals).

when the scripture is understood correctly, it seems to actually imply that it'd be unnatural for heterosexuals to live as homosexuals and for homosexuals to live as heterosexuals. simply said: be yourself.

romans 1:26-27 speaks only of heterosexual people who act contrary to their nature.

"god created each of us with a sexual orientation. to attempt to change it is, in effect, telling god that he created us incorrectly. the creation (being you and me) does not have the right to re-create itself."
