Bisexual, British hispanic, chain-smoking, liberal, lapsed Catholic, posh, book-worm, skinny male...

what appears to be straightforward fact: white (also have the reflecting skin like BVS), Canadian, straight, female

social class: from a lower-class family, but now a lawyer

politically: socialist/feminist, with some bizarre conservative quirks in the mix

perceived as: aloof, cold, angry (by those who can't see past the mask to cover the shyness), been accused of being a man-hater (which i could never understand, probably a warped understanding of the true meaning of feminism), and lately, some small minded folk have been questioning my sexual orientation because of my prolonged stint as a carefree single gal (like i'm magically going to *turn* gay or something, because you know, it is a choice, right? )

You are what many a spiritual enlightened being would call 'an old soul'.

Preferably someone closer to my side of the world, I would hasten to add. And someone not so damn smart.

Now you've really hit the hot button!

I'd probably label myself as a music fan in general rather than specifically a U2 fan but no prizes for guessing which band I listen to the most!

Catholic who has holds liberal/moderate views about many things, and is a Democrat

Irish but I don't care much for drinking

Not in my twenties anymore but I can still feel and act like I am, on a good day. Except when my bones creak

Have lived all my life in MA but I don't say PAHK your CAH or anything like that

Am shy/introverted and nervous around people, I guess some people might not think that. I'm basically very boring

In spite of my name, I'd never mess w/ a married man Not that any are interested..

american, middleclass single white woman. Witch. Anarchist. Utopian. Feminist. bisexual. Artist, healer, teacher. Film geek. Big sister. "That wierd chick obsessed with U2".
hmm, it feels good to list them and see them in front of me...and it's always good to check in and know that they are all just labels, usefull ones, old ones, and some that maybe have outlived their usefullness. Some of them feel like burdens sometimes. Thanks for instigating this thread!

Straight, white, non-denominational protestant, social conservative, college student, and U2 fan. I usually keep my cool, but tend to get pissed off with those on a campaign to harass, whine, and completely block out any viewpoint they disagree with. Most of the time, I have no mood rather than a bad mood, I guess you can say. From time to time, my inner child might lash out here and there.

yeah, I would definitely include U2 fan as a stereotype for me; everyone knows me as that.
