who am i?
i am a mother, a lover, a friend, an advocate, a writer, a pagan, a non-white woman. i am pro-choice, pro-sex, pro-personal fucking autonomy b/c for FSM's sake we aren't hurting anyone. friend and family to QUILTBAG, and to people of every color. i am a believer in the great big concept of making this world better for those who are in it, and for making the planet better for those who are on it. sometimes i use the word "fuck" like a comma and i think that is OK.
and i believe.
i believe that the best compliments i have ever received are things that were meant to hurt me. i believe that the kyriarchy exists, and that we are, all of us, victims of it. i believe that gender is a social construct no matter what sex organs, or not, you may have under your pants. i believe the gamut of sexuality is as wide, diverse and beautiful as the people in the world. i believe that what happens in my body and my bedroom b/t consenting adults is nobody's business but my own. i believe porn can be woman friendly. i believe sex workers should have rights b/c they are people too. i believe that women should be free to make their own choices and that we have a responsibility to support them in those choices. i believe people with disabilities have a right to access the world. i believe that if i have to have perfect grammar and punctuation to get through to you then you are in the wrong fucking forest. i believe i can make mistakes b/c professionals have editors. i believe that fat people are people too and deserving of our love and respect. i believe that putting limits on our choices b/c of the religious or moral codes of a few is hurtful and dangerous to our society. i believe that it is OK to get emotional over something you believe in w/o losing the validity of your point. i believe it is OK to swear and get fucking loud about things b/c people have been saying shit nicely for years and no one even looked up until the little girl said "fuck". i believe that if i eat an entire tub of butter and no one sees me that the calories don't count.
i am a complex person filled w/ many emotions and thoughts and i refuse to be pigeon holed into any mold, box, social construct, gender norm or expectation or labeled. i refuse to let my job or education be the sum of who i am. sometimes i think that my progressive attitude makes me better than you, but for fuck's sake i am an aries, what the hell do you expect?
