Do you look more like your mom or dad?:: I guess my mom since everyone always thought we were sisters. But I have my dad’s freakishly skinny ankles and dark under eyes.
What is your heritage(s)?:: My family on my mother’s side is hispanic, but my mother’s father (who my grandmother quickly divorced after 3 children, later getting together with another hispanic man whom I know as my grandfather) was a white trash New Yorker and my father was white as well, so my mom (half-hispanic) and I are both the Whitey McWhitersons in our family.
Can you speak any of those languages?:: I learned as much Spanish as I could so I could understand my grandparents when they spoke to each other in front of me. But I’m too embarrassed to speak it in front of them because of my shit accent.

Um, my ex broke up with me right after I told him I was bi (that’s how I identified back then, pan now), but he said it was because I was going up to college and wouldn’t be able to see him very often.

Have you / would you ever have casual sex?::Definitely would.
Do you need to love someone to have sex?:: For me, I feel like I would need to know the person a bit or be friends with them, but sex doesn’t equal love for me. It can be full of love if it’s with the person I love, but I don’t need to be in love to have sex.

Do you feel that some drugs are more dangerous than others?:: Hell yeah.
Should any drugs be legal?:: I don’t really mind about pot being legal. It’s not that harmful to the average person and it keeps so many people out of prison who would otherwise go and often turn to worse drugs or into harder criminals.
Why do you feel that way?:: Just explained it.
Have you ever sold drugs?:: No.
Have you ever bought drugs?:: No, but I’ve offered to pitch in to buy some pot with friends so we could try brownies.

Are drugs more helpful or hurtful in your opinion?:: Hurtful.
Did your parents used to drink or do drugs?:: My father was an alcoholic, but he’s been clean for something like 15 years now and is a sponsor and counselor.
Does that affect your choice in doing / not doing them?:: Not really. I was scared of drinking before I turned 21 because I was afraid I’d inherit his alcoholism, but that luckily wasn’t the case, lol.
Have you ever tripped on acid?:: Nope.
Do you take prescription drugs when you don’t need them?:: No.
Do you take OTC drugs when you don’t need them?:: I used allergy pills to help me sleep?
Politics, Religion, & Philosophy
Do you have a political affiliation?:: Um, like…Democrat? Or liberal?
Are you more liberal or conservative?:: Waaaaay liberal.
Does the government have too much power?:: Probs.
Is America too intrusive in other countries?:: Really feels like it.
Is the Iraq War a war on terrorism?:: I don’t know enough to answer a lot of these questions.
Should ANY country be allowed to have WMD’s?:: They scare me, so no.

Have you / would you consider joining the military?:: That’s a big nope.
Do you think gay people should be allowed to join the military?:: Duh.
Should gay marriage be legal?:: The biggest DUH. Still makes no sense to me why religion is dictating who can marry in this day and age.
Are you pro-life or pro-choice?:: Pro choice all the way. No qualifiers.
If a woman is raped, should she be forced to have the child anyways?:: Fucking fuck no. I just said pro-choice. That means for EVERYONE.
Should there be an age limit on birth control?:: Nah.
Should schools give out condoms?:: Weird. I’m all for sex ed, I just never thought about that as an option. Uh, sure? Why not? Though maybe have them somewhere like the nurse’s or something so stupid kids don’t just use them as projectiles and water balloons and whatnot.
Should creationism and evolution be taught side by side in schools?:: Um, only scientifically proven theories in school, please? Don’t force religious teachings based on zero percent science on kids.
Should there be harsher laws for drunk drivers?:: Probably. I don’t even know really what the punishments are now?
Should all people have access to medical marijuana?:: Of course.
Is there such a thing as “God-given” rights?:: What the fuck does that even mean?
Is marriage an outdated concept in today’s society?:: For sure, it still holds a lot of archaic symbolism.
Is statutory rape really rape?:: Rape is rape.
Do you agree with age of consent laws?:: It’s really convoluted sometimes. Like, I wasn’t sure if when I was 18 and in a relationship with a not-quite-yet 16 year-old if that was okay or not at first. And it varies so much depending on where you are.
Do you believe there is a meaning to life?:: I think one can usually find a good meaning or purpose in almost anyone’s life, however small.
Do you believe there is an after-life?:: I mostly believe in reincarnation, but I also believe you kind of get to choose what happens to you. If you don’t want to be reincarnated, you can just chill in the spirit world. Or if you had certain religious beliefs, there isn’t one religion that was right, but rather whatever you believed in will happen for you.
Do you believe in karma?:: Yes.
Do you believe in any forms of magic / witchcraft?:: Yes.
What religion BEST fits your beliefs?:: I dunno. There are so many religions out there that I know nothing about.
Is the bible complete bullshit?:: I’d say it has some good teachings in it, but the manner in which people so strictly follow the parts that are convenient for them is bullshit. Like condemning gays but ignoring that it says ridiculous things like don’t wear clothing of mixed material or something.
Are some things simply unexplainable?:: Oh yeah.
Do you believe in the supernatural? (ghosts, etc.):: Fucking yes.
Should the drinking age be raised, lowered, or kept the same?:I think it makes sense why it’s 21 in the states, but younger ages seem to work for people in Europe, so who knows?
Should health care be universal?:: YESYESYES.
Could peace on Earth ever be achievable?:: That’s really hard to imagine, but I think we could make certain things waaay easier for ourselves if we’d just stop being stubborn.
Do you believe there is life on other planets?:: For sure.
Does astrology hold some truth to it or is it just nonsense?::Sometimes it’s scary accurate.
Can someone really be psychic?:: I feel like it’s not as common/or as easy as they make it seem on those dumb reality shows, but I definitely believe it, due to personal experiences.
