A tiny bit of totally useless background: I'm an atheist, democratic socialist, slightly bisexual, transgender, extremely liberal, pro-choice, and extremely supportive of the GLBT movement. I have very little patience for people who can't keep up with me and my ego, and I love to be cynical, sarcastic, and generally a raving wise-cracking pessimist.
I'm the opposite of patriotic - I don't believe in blindly putting my faith in anything without evidence, and that includes my country, god, the tooth fairy, and good-tasting vegetables.
My fandom is Stargate Atlantis with some occasional dabbling in other fandoms, and I have a bit of an obsession with Joe Flanigan (and various other older men. See: Robert Downey Jr., Harrison Ford, etc.).
