Name:
Thoughts of a nerdy feminist
I'm 37. I'm a bleeding-heart liberal and damn proud, a feminist, a role-player, a writer, and I live with my husband, son, daughter, and doggy.

The only rule I have in my journal is no ad hominems. Not against other commenters in my journal, and not against me. If you do this with my mutual friends I try to freeze it as quickly as I can. I won't get mad at you or defriend you. If I cannot freeze or remove it right away, I apologize, but I definitely will. I want my friends to feel safe to speak here. I also would like to receive that same respect. And if I find out you're harrassing my friends elsewhere, you'll probably be removed.

Most of my journal will be talk about my kids, or maybe my writing or about role-playing, with the occasional feminist rant. If this will offend or bore you, you may not want to bother. But if you're cool with it, I like when people say 'hi' when they friend me. And if you don't, well, I'll check you out when I notice you're there and unless you're some KKK freak or an obvious sockpuppet, I'll probably friend you back. :)

"It does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg." - Thomas Jefferson

"All decent people, male and female, are feminists. The only people who are not feminists are those who believe that women are inherently inferior or undeserving of the respect and opportunity afforded men. Either you are a feminist or you are a sexist/misogynist. There is no box marked "other"." - Ani DiFranco

"Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"" By Emma Lazarus, on the bottom of the Statue of Liberty.
