I'm a 27 year old graduate of Scripps college in Clarement, California (my thesis was a content analysis of slash fan fiction over the past 30 years). I'm a loud and proud feminist, activist (ask me what it was like to be among one million people marching for choice in Washington D.C.), and a crusader for social justice. I work for Planned Parenthood. I'm affiliated with/a member of HRC, N.O.W., the Feminist Majority, Moveon.org, the Mars Society (I support the human colonization of Mars!), and many others. Racism, Sexism, Homophobia, Classism and any other form of discrimination and hate I absolutely detest and will not tolerate.
I tend to live in my own head (it's a much nicer place there and I have a legion of fans who chant my name) and see the world from the perspective of an outsider looking in. I'm VERY sarcastic and funny (yay for defense mechanisms!), but around new situations and people I'm reserved until I can test the waters. I love my friends and I'm fiercely loyal where they're concerned. I hate Shrub (Dubya) and generally love life.
Fan fiction, slash, fandom, fandom studies, media studies etc are my passions and hobbies; This does *not* mean that I cannot talk, think about, discuss, or find interest in other subjects.
Anyway, feel free to drop me a line if you think I'm interesting and you're not dodgy. I realize that I may be dodgy, but I reserve the right to be biased towards myself.
And now for some cool quotes! I collect quotes and love to display some of them from time to time:
"If I wasn't an actor, I think I'd have gone mad. You have to have extra voltage, some extra temperament to reach certain heights. Art is a little bit larger than life - it's an exhalation of life and I think you probably need a little touch of madness." -Laurence Olivier
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." Dr. Seuss
"The wonder is that we can see these trees and not wonder more." Ralph Waldo Emerson
"The only gracious way to accept an insult is to ignore it. If you can't ignore it, top it. If you can't top it, laugh at it. If you can't laugh at it, it is probably deserved." Russell Lynes
"No man can purchase his virtue too dear, for it is the only thing whose value must ever increase with the price it has cost us. Our integrity is never worth so much as when we have parted with our all to keep it." -Charles Caleb Colton
"If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities; and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse gift will find a fitting place." Margaret Mead
"Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough." FDR
"The shepherd always tries to persuade the sheep that their interests and his are the same." -Marie Beyle
"The greatest mystery is not that we have been flung at random between the profusion of matter and the stars, but that within this prison we can draw from ourselves images powerful enough to deny our nothingness."-Andre Malraux
"Sometimes you just have to take the leap, and build your wings on the way down." Kobi Yamada
"I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next." Gilda Radner
Pervert. You'll be arrested before you can leave the fandom. The only way you'll make it on the internet after that is by having your picture on the Sex Crimes Page of your local police department's website. But no one will miss you and your defence of incest. We'll celebrate your incarceration. You fucking sicko liberal.
