But as far as a since of identity, label identities are un-individual and are merely pack identities, a sign one if too afraid to explore their own thoughts and opinions... It's more like a borg identity.

It only turns into hate if people let morons manipulate their thoughts and feelings without thinking things through. Which, sadly, happens all too often (Just watch Fox News for proof).

I would have said "go to Nimbin"
http://www.nimbinaustralia.com/
at NSW town that is sort of a hippie alternative lifestyle magnet, but its a long way from North America.
Don't you have a community like this somewhere?

Also, your post made me think ... you are looking for very specific qualities. In other posts if a guy happens to specify he wants a thin girl (or not fat) - he gets dumped on big time by a lot of women. Isn't it a bit ironic you can be more demanding in what you are looking for and you don't get personal attacks?

Also, snake321, you are wrong to assume that all aspies know what it is like to be at the bottom rung of society. I have never experienced such exclusion or abuse. I have never wished that labels would be abolished so that I might be equal with the more popular people. That is why I defend labels, because I have never seen the downside.

I think he hasnt been attacked because few of the females even bother to read..."guy looking for girl" topics...havent you guys figured that out yet.....I only responded because I know him and we have discussed this issue...I dont find any thing wrong with the qualities he is looking for....as I might if an over weight unatractive guy only was interested in hot young skinny chicks...pretty unrealistic but not to unussual....tends to show the immaturity of the individual more then being actually "sexist"...What ever the person is looking for I respect anyone who is honest about it...(well,I may not repect them but I repect their honesty)


And Snake321....Make a list of all the negative qualities and cruel acts done to animals and humans by humans....then do the same for animals(lots of diversity in their behaviors based on species)...Now compare them....Do you really think humans need to be "more" human?

I guess it's healthy that he wants to be a social socialist as long as he isn't an anarchism nazi.

11. (not to sound overly intellectualized or pompus) has read atleast one of the following books and have been personally effected by it, either changing the way they life or the way they interpret the world around them.. society of the spectacle by guy debord, the communist manifesto or das capital by karl marx, temporary autonomous zone by hakim bey, steal this book or f*** the system by abbie hoffman (though out of context today, I feel the "freegan" perspective will never lose context)



i'm just about halfway through the temporary autonomous zone at the moment.
did you ever read raoul vaneigem's revolution of everyday life, or henri lefebvre's critique of everyday life? i just got a copy of the lefebvre book, looking forward to reading it apparently it was one of the main influences on the early situationist movement and particularly the lettrists.
