Introduction - Jimmy II Sticks

I've yet to meet a black or white person in my travels and I get around, as they all say. For that reason I'm looking forward to exploring the many similarities we all have in recognizing our stark differences. Greetings beautiful brown faced people of the world!

I publish as much of my life as possible while living for a living and rarely the moment(s). Jimmy II Sticks is not an alias. It’s the nickname given to me as a young James by my grandmother and again by my step-father, for which I'm still known. I'm the second one. Detroit stand up...LOL. I loved growing up in Detroit surrounded by black folk, and as soon as I got out I realized how much I despised it. Now I'm participating in its restructuring from a far.

I'm an engineer, published author, ethnographer of technology, and frequent traveler...just a regular dude most days. While many umbrella terms define me, I identify as African-American pansexual polyamorous and male.

  1. My race is not a choice, its deterministic, although when I got my genome sequenced by Harvard's personal genome project I realized that I'm actually much less African than I am native America and Nordic ethnicities.
  2. My orientation is not a choice, I've always known that i was different since about age 5, but my preference grew in adolescence to girls, guys, and intersex. In adulthood I had a few hundred partners collaborate on my orientation.
  3. My relationship structure is not monogamous, because its not realistic for me. I understand that this isn't suitable for everyone, nor do I think it should be. I don't think monogamy is synonymous with commitment.
  4. Lastly, my gender is a choice. Because of the technology available to humans I could be anything I feel like being in this century, and I feel like a dude able to fall in love with plenty of other types of people.

For these reason I cannot be rigidly straight, or gay, or even bisexual. Redundantly,  they suggest that there are only two gender types. All of my posts will be presented from my identity perspective; I promise not to ever try and present anyone else's.
