I wonder if anyone will get the reference. :p
Hello citizens of the Scarleteen metropolis. Hope you are all doing well tonight. Despite my username, I am in fact something like a female. But you can call me Daniel Cowman. It just works better that way.
So let's see. Who am I? I am nineteen years old. I go to a university, where I am an art major. Art is something I've wanted to do as a career since I was... about five or six. I had short periods of time where I wanted to be a sexologist or an anthropologist, but darnit, art's better (for me). I love to draw, and painting is fun as well. I want to learn how to do glasswork, but that is pricey so I will have to wait on that.
I am a feminist. Oh yes. Hear me roar. ;P The professor I had for Intro to Women's Studies last year LOVED me. I can't wait to go back to school so I can drop by her office and talk. I'm a total loser like that. *grin* I never did that while I was in her class, but she's not teaching any of my classes fall semester so I think it's okay to go say hi.
I was raised Catholic but am now agnostic. Sometimes I feel more like an atheist, though. I guess it depends on the day. My mother is pretty hardcore Catholic; she converted when she married my father. My father is dead now. But she kept the religion thing going anyway because she promised my dad that she would raise us (my brother and me) Catholic. I think she feels a little let down because I'm agnostic. But I can't force myself to believe something.
I'm polyamorous because I am prone to twitterpatedness with multiple people and don't want to hurt anybody by claiming monogamy. I think that is the responsible thing to do. I strive to be responsible in my romantic relationships and I think pragmatism is the best lenscap with which to view matters of love. I mean, I'm cool with being happy, but I want to be realistic as well.
I'm bisexual. I am not quite sure if this is apparent by looking at me. Some people don't think about it and assume I'm straight. But I have short hair and wear guy's clothes most of the time, so some other people think I'm a lesbian. Well HAH! You're both wrong! XP I think there's some degree of invisibility that comes with being bisexual, unless you are very affectionate with your friends at parties. Which is not something I really feel up to. I don't need to prove myself.
I don't really know what else to say. Mostly I am here for questions about sex, because I have questions, and for the honest atmosphere, because that is always a nice thing to come across. So.

Hello Daniel Cowman! Your display name is surely unique!
I love art, Im not exactly sure what I want to do with my life, but art and medicine are definitly in that future picture!
I was wondering, what do you like to draw? What mediums do you prefer?
My stepmom is a professor and she teaches Women Studies. When I have off from school, sometimes I'll go to her class just to hear her lecture. yea, I'm wierd that way. But hey, its better to be yourself.
Have you ever considered taking more specialized classes in Women Studies?
