Are all avatars in black and white?
I thought I saw a color one, but then I haven't seen it since. So just checking.
I'm new. Hi. I find a lot of these online forums are sausage fests with token women laying around here or there. I've seen a few women posting here though, so thought I'd try this place... though the account creation was a little wierd (Mighta been my fault... though)
Still I'm pretty sure the guy who helped me has hairy arms, as I found some stray curlies in my email in-box!
Feminist? Yes, of course... Why I would advocate for anything less just seems silly. I don't like mainstream US politics (Yes, I'm an American, sorry about the last few prez...) I'm pretty far to the left really, probably almost revolutionary. I hate Capitalism and money, etc. Who doesn't though, I mean irl, not on the all important internet???
I'm a little older, no I'm not telling how much. I'm not a fan of arguing but I like debating anyone who can be reasonable and who can make points while also conceding obvious holes in their arguments, as I try to do in hopes of building more solid rationalizations for the positions I currently hold.
So I guess I'm not sure what else we're supposed to say, but issue-wise I'm against government in general (In the social-Anarchist way, not the Libertarian way), for female empowerment and freedom, I'm a huge fan of the Northern Alliance in Syria (Long live Rojava!), I also advocate for children, families. By the same token I hate identity politics and try to never "wave a flag".
As part of that I see race, class, and gender as little other than oppressive dichotomies we'd all be better off without. Basically I see class conflict as paramount, and the other two as unfortunate side effects of this paradigm. I am a fangirl for nativism, but I try to listen and support those movements, rather than spreading my own viewpoints on them. I'd hop around with them if invited though! (Actually I was, so I'm going to, yea me!)
In my camp, everyone is gray and their gender is human. It's up to the individual to determine for themselves how best to express their own concepts of race and gender in their own lives. I feel that I honor these kindred spirits in this way, in simply taking their word for who they are, and by doing so I let them define their own existences for themselves. That just seems like the kind of freedom that empowers everyone.
Certain things are now legal in my state. I enjoy them here and there.
What? I meant guns!
What? Ok, I meant pot too! (just a little though)
I wonder how long will you last and if you do then what kind of radical will you become in the end ?
