candy_lea19 So,
I have only recently been attempting to make female friends. I am Bi sexual but this has nothing to do with sex. Most of my friends are male and I really want a more diverse group of friends. I want to meet females with confidence that like to have fun without constantly being boy crazy. I want to go out for coffee and talk about something other then who was on the cover of people mag. It get so old. The women I have dated in the past were smart and interesting, It just seems like the females who don't want to date me are all talking about dudes.

Alright, I had this brilliant Idea last year, and the year before but always got bad reviews from people i knew in real life - saying that it was a stupid and pointless Idea, so I never let the project go ahead with my plans for world domination education. Here's the deal, read it if you'd like to be a part of Lyrical Rage - vocal war

All the info is there, this is for real.

Will be x-posted so sorry if you see this more then once.

10:57 am - Seen
the_dark_path Your eyes are like a panther
sitting in the corner of the room
stalking those weaker
getting ready to pounce
It is in your every breath
You, hunter
are hunted
by me
I see your claws
you see my knife
who will blow away whom
Who is the greater beast?

12:37 pm - International Women's Day
thebratqueene Today is International Women's Day and all over the world, marches and other forms of protest and awareness raising is going on. It's a tragedy, that everyday around the world, such atrocities happen. Such as:

-At least one in three women and girls has been beaten or sexually abused in her lifetime.
-In South Africa a woman is raped every 35 seconds, one in two women will be raped in their lifetime.
-More than 130 million girls and women worldwide have been subjected to female genital cutting, and a further two million girls are at risk.
-At least 60 million girls who would otherwise be expected to be alive are "missing" from various populations, mostly Asia, as a result of sex-selective abortions, infanticide or neglect.
-The brothels of India hold between 100,000 and 160,000 Nepalese women and girls, 35% were taken on the false pretext of marriage or a good job.

In the U.S.:

-1 in 6 women in the United States has experienced an attempted or completed sexual assault.
-Somewhere in America, a woman is raped every 90 seconds.
-According to the Justice Department, 1 in 2 rape victims is under 18; 1 in 6 is under 12.
-Of the 1,977 high school girls aged 14-18 surveyed in 1997 study, about 20% reported that they had been hit, slapped, shoved or forced into sexual activity by a dating partner.
-Pregnant or recently pregnant women are more likely to be the victims of homicide than to die of any other cause.

10:31 pm - out of sorts

snwleop
Hello all, I have been feeling not myself. I have no drive, no purpose, I feel my heart is gone and I care for nothing.

Is it a lull? or a point in mylife I will get over soon? I used to feel empowered at work and home like I could accomplish anything, and no I am content to change nothing. I know part of this is having Fibro and accepting I am not who I used to be. But in doing so I now have lost the person that was me, so who am I know and how do I get the love for life back?

I feel negative alot because of what I can't do, and I don't like it. I feel like I have to find me, my soul, cause right now I feel empty.

It is a bad feeling.....Trish

the_dark_path You say you do things backwards
well that's obvious,
for aren't you better at subtraction
than addition
as shown in the equation
of me plus you?
And since we're talking math
doesn't that make me your inverse
in this verse
I'm a negative you,
while you've gone upside-down.
This x and your y
make nothing now
twisted logic equates how
we think perfectly wrong
With me as your oppsite,
and you not a negative i.
For the basis of our negativity
is the difference of you and me
but we're not the same
except when four is three
like the blending of grey
because black is most totally white
and most definately not.
We're different because we're completely
and not polarity
which just goes back to circle me.
Here you go, my backwards middle girl
did you know you were
my whole world?
Now I'm getting disneyland
Which is better than wonderland
But I can no longer hold your hand...

current mood: Cheshire Cat

10:21 am - hey, untypicals. they're trying to box me again.
whisperdryad Not much action in this journal lately, and me, I am going a little crazy and writing entries in almost every community in which I'm a member. So feel the love, untypical girls!

Since last I wrote I've become a lot more aware of just how mysteriously gendered I am. A lot of inner fighting and stupidity has quieted down and, in this aspect of my life at least, I just am. This is part of why I think pansexual is the best-fitting word for me yet.

Also, I have tried doing the whole coming-out deal with some of my friends. Hey, I figure, if it's this important and central to being me, they have some sort of right to know ... the reactions have been mixed. Since I was out as bisexual before, this whole pansexual, gender-queer thing just seems besides the point to most of them. One of my friends has just stopped mentioning anything related to this around me. Another has pretty much dismissed it as silly. The best response has come from mukudori who is cutely playful with my androgyny. He even mixes up the gender of my pronouns sometimes ... what a sweet friend :)

I can't remember ... are any of you on the blurry side of gender and sexual orientation? Do you have this problems where people think since you're "part" hetero that you're just being silly or that you don't really know what you're talking about?

Hello. I'm new. My name is Molly and I'm 16 years old. A little bit about me: I love writing, art, and music. My favorite bands/artists are the Sex Pistols, Depeche Mode, David Bowie, The Smiths, The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Cibo Matto, Super Furry Animals, and Nine Inch Nails. I write almost all the time as I have found it is the best way for me to express myself. Plus, it's enjoyable!

People always look at me like I'm weird because I have very strong view points and am a feminist. My friends always say "Who cares" about all the problems with society today. So, I'm very excited to have found this community, as it looks like a great place to meet others who are very opinionated and strong-willed. I look forward to talking with you all. <3 Molly.

echoes_respond hiiii everyone!

i joined this community when i saw the first promo for it, i believe in the flb community? i guess i'll finally introduce myself.

my name is emi (i hate when people say "like the award??" as if i've never heard it) and i'm nineteen. i work in half price books, and i love that job. i live in texas, which is less than ideal, but one day i will have enough money to move away. i'm not in school, but when i go back i believe i'll be going to be a lawyer, and i want to work for civil rights. i don't neccessarily consider myself 'untypical' only because there are some very typical qualities about me. but i think for myself, and i have for a while now. i don't have a sexual orientation, i don't believe in those. i love to read, and i love to listen to music. i love to sleep more then all of it though, haha.

i'm glad this community is here. i don't really like talking about myself though, haha.

love
emi

the_dark_path I met a lovely girl this weekend
I would like to applaud her
I don't like our society's discomfort about androgyny. She has a boy haircut and "tough" clothes. She is such a nice and sweet person (she's also lovely to look at so that helps)but people shie away from her because she seems tough. I'd just like to say that people should get over themselves and their stereotypes, especially those about homosexuality and gender roles (arg!).

10:42 am - First impressions are key

_tourniquet_
I am nothing but myself. I hate labels, real people don't need them. I am a controversy of myself, I am nothing I seem to be. Just try to figure me out. I'm always there with an open mind, always thinking, always feeling. These wheels never stop turning. This is me, confusion, love and care. Much too deep for my own good. But not deep enough to drown. My heart has been glued together many times, so many trial and errors. Most of those memories are now behind closed doors.

I seek divinity, truth, love, freedom, desire, beauty. I am a powerhouse of emotions.

For all of you beautiful un-typicals, my community is __white_noise__. Please come join and post everything and anything you're individualistic hearts desire.

Until next time, this is Miss Abby, signing off.

10:57 pm - introduction
whisperdryad Hello, everyone. I joined this community back when it was just a wee little embryo of a community with no entries at all to its name, and since I was busy and a little afraid of being the first to speak, I didn't introduce myself.

I joined because I am pretty untypical and I am a girl, or rather, a young woman. I'm a 19 year old college student, born in Minnesota with Virginian parents and background, living in Massachusetts since I was six. In some ways that's how I think my untypical story starts, but I'd be weird even if I'd never been unrooted. Academically, I am a double major, which is to say that I think painting and writing are equally important in my future, and I have a hard time getting the school to recognize that. Sexually, the word that fits me best thus far seems to be pansexual ... (see i_am_pansexual

6:13 pm - introductions, yay

falin4the1stime
hey hey im krysti. thought the concept of "untypicalgirl" was pretty neat. im bisexual although im very confused when it comes to that. im a dreamer and i dont follow conformities. i cant stand the teenage drama that surrounds me every single day. i believe in the power of thoughts and i love to write. i think every person has the right to his or her opinion and what they believe in. its very important to know who you are although im still finding myself. life seems really hard to deal with each and every day but somehow with the help of my angels i make it through. not a great intro, but thats the best i can do. i'd love to hear from you guys. see ya on the flip side!

6:31 pm - Bonjour
the_dark_path I'm an eccentric, arrogant, intelligent, beautiful, terrible, bisexual, fool. I am every book I've read, every person I've kissed, all the petals of a flower, and a garbage bag blowing alone in the wind. My back still bleeds from the memory of my shredded wings, does yours? ...Hi.

12:42 am - I am in the right place!

snwleop
Hello to all, I am Trish. I live in NC, but grew up in a small farm town in Wisconsin, that happened to be all white. And to this day, 34 years later is still a single race.

But that is not who I am, I am a searcher, a provider, and a wander. I love looking for the unknow, I like the truth, and fairness in life. I especially like to question ruts and why change does not happen.

I love my parter of 7 years, and her children, which I claim as my own. I have 2 rescue dogs, that have a large part of my heart, they have lived and survived terrible situations, and I promise them a good life and all the love they can handle. Lucy is my bird, of 12 years. She entered my life at 3 weeks, and I am her mother as far as she knows, she runs the house, as long as the dogs are outside, and she will come looking for me, if she can't see me.

Well that is alot about me. Just one more thing, I am a supervisor on second shift, I have worked at this plant 11 years, I love my job, and all the guys I work with, since I am the only women on second shift.

That is it, I am different, and I expect everyone to be different, and challenge the world that doesn't change or improve or learn, we are the change.

11:05 am - hello?!?

one_false_step
hey all!! this is a new community, no one's posted yet, so i guess i'll start the round of intros.

i'm 22 years old and i live in chicago. what makes me untypical? some of the easier answers include that i'm big, bi, butch, and nerdy as all get out. then again, if i hid all of that, i'd fade away. what makes me most atypical, and most proud, is the fact that i'm an extrovert. i don't apologize for my lack of normalcy...i revel in it and enjoy making a big deal out of it. i'm shameless, and i think putting myself out there for all to see (and get pissed off at if necessary) is the only way to make headway anywhere.

current mood: determined
