I'm a writer exploring my my journey coming back from a radical leftist lifestyle to more traditional American values. I spend a lot of my time pondering gender dynamics and how traditional gender roles can serve us in practical ways.
I've always been a walking contradiction, born in the Bible Belt to a Jewish D.C. native and a Texan raised in the Methodist church. Raised in Memphis, TN, I never could decide whether I wanted to be a redneck or an urbane city-dweller.
So I chose both. Needless to say, I've been confused my whole life about who I "really" am. I'm constantly waiting for my true identity to leap out at me in a dark alley, holding me at knifepoint and demanding I explain my inconsistencies.
That hasn't happened yet, so for now I just write about my identity and how you can shape your own.
