Howdy

I've been using DU as an news site for years now, but never really felt comfortable posting. Still don't (social anxiety, wheee!), but I've grown tired of people and politicians talking about individuals like me and superimposing their prejudices on my reality. I'm even more tired of seeing it done to others. I guess that means I have to open my mouth at some point, so.. here I am.

I am a feminist and a humanist. I am LGTB. I am permanently disabled and were it not for medical care I was flat out lucky to get, I wouldn't be alive today. I'm a gamer/sci-fi nerd. I am a foul-mouthed creature of logic with a low tolerance for bullsh*t. I probably spend more time than I should looking at pictures of adorable animals online. My higher education focused on anthropology, sociology, race, gender and bullying.

That's the nutshell.

Hi. XD

2. Welcome too, Arithia, but all the tolerance for BS you can manage will serve you well here also. Or

you can block messages from those here who remind you too much of what you're trying to turn your back on.

3. Hello Arithia

The more viewpoints in the mix the better.
You may need to build up a bit of a bullshit callous though.
Take it slowly, you don't want to develop blisters in the early stages
