About Me
I hate writing "About Me" type things so I'm giving this my best shot. I love data and I am trying to combine that with my newly discovered passion for writing and investigating issues that are part of my special interests. My blog is my attempt at a canvas where data will meet my creativity as I attempt to armchair philosophize about how weird humanity is. 

I navigate the world as a nonbinary, bisexual individual, often finding myself at the intersection of various identities and experiences. This blog is my space to address these aspects head-on, acknowledging the complexities and challenges they bring. It's a place for honesty and authenticity, where I share my thoughts and experiences without reservation. My life has consisted of navigating pretty significant mental and physical health challenges. These experiences are integral to who I am and naturally find their way into my writings. As someone who navigates the complexities of turning against my family’s beliefs and the journey of self-discovery, I wanted a space where I can share openly and honestly, free from reservation, and so I am giving myself that space behind the cover of a pen name.

If it isn't explicitly clear: I'm super biased. And so are you and so is everyone you know. It's time we all stopped pretending that isn't a thing. So that gives me the long awaited freedom to discuss my special interest of social justice type issues with a progressive, humanist, feminist, existential, (and I'll be real: pessimistic) world-view. I am a product of an abusive childhood that was very religious, extremely right-wing, and very racist / sexist / homophobic / ableist. So as a "rainbow warrior" myself with a huge string of labels, I am still unlearning a lot of harmful things I grew up around that not only are just against what I currently believe but result in some very confusing internalized biphobia / transphobia / misogyny etc. I think this gives me I pretty unique perspective in this polarized world we live in. I know exactly what is wrong on both sides and as an autistic I'm not afr
aid to say it.

Believing firmly in the power of cooperation and shared knowledge, I'll also be sharing tools and strategies that have aided me in navigating life's challenges. I'm definitely not an expert or doctor but as a lifelong rider of the struggle bus I’ve gathered a wealth of practical insights that I hope can help someone waste less time than I did.


A Blend of Serious and Sardonic
I want to be up front about the style of my writing. This blog is meant to be a space where I embrace the unconventional, challenge norms, and occasionally indulge in a bit of what some might consider "trolling" – but always with purpose and never at the expense of people’s humanity or my progressive beliefs.

 

Thanks to the ‘tism I have a pretty big justice boner so I firmly oppose hate speech, but at the same time I believe in the power of rhetoric and art to call out societal problems. My nature has always been anti-authoritarian, especially when facing demands I perceive as unjust, but it's rooted in a desire for constructive change.

 

My relationship with humor and sarcasm is complex, partly due to my neurodiversity and partly because of my unique perspective on life. While I may not always grasp conventional humor or sarcasm, I have my own style – one that's often misunderstood. So I felt it was probably best to address it up front since I’ve spent my whole life correcting social misunderstandings and trying to understand the nuances of these types of things.

 

I love things like absurdist humor and stories of malicious compliance. That being said, I really want to distance myself from the negative connotations of "trolling" in the political or social realms. My aim is not to provoke for the sake of provocation but to call out issues and sometimes wit can be super effective. I'm not claiming to be a master of humor or sarcasm; instead, I'm someone who views the world from a different angle and isn't afraid to express it.

 

Expect a mix of serious academic and philosophical bullshit with a twist of dry, absurdist humor. This blog isn't just a clinical examination of humanity's quirks; it's a well-rounded exploration that sometimes veers into the realms of the sardonic or the outright perplexing.

 

And if you haven’t figured out by now that I swear then I don’t know what to tell you. I’m not going to apologize for it and if you think it brings down my work, then you’re too pretentious for me to want to deal with anyway. Critical and philosophical thought doesn’t need to be some fancy thing kept up in ivory towers that only privileged people who speak certain ways can partake in. I actually have a lot to say about this but that's for another time.

 

Just A Bit More About Language

I go by they/them pronouns. You will see that I tend to favor gender-inclusive language and I   do not use person-first  language when talking about my health conditions like my autism. 

If you're unfamiliar with it, 'gender-inclusive language' is a communication approach that avoids gender-specific terms, trying to make it so    that my language doesn't reinforce binary gender norms. The hope is to    recognize    and respects fellow nonbinary individuals and those with diverse gender identities. It also promotes inclusivity by using terms like "they/them" when unsure of someone's pronouns, using    gender-neutral job titles, and avoiding gender stereotypes. Gender-inclusive language is a small   step   towards    a more equitable and respectful environment for everyone, challenging the traditional binary view of the world, and supporting a broader spectrum of identities. It's about acknowledging and valuing everyone's experiences and identities.

'Person-first language' is a way of discussing individuals that supposedly highlights their humanity and uniqueness before mentioning any disabilities or characteristics. It would be like    instead of saying "person with autism." People who do this say they want to    acknowledge the person beyond their disability and promote respectful communication. Not sure how you are  highlighting anything about me by simply saying the words 'person with' but ok.

'Identity-first language' is the   approach I use to describing individuals.  It is where the emphasis is placed on a specific identity or characteristic first, such as autism, by mentioning it before the person's name or identity. "Autistic person" is an example of identity-first language, which some individuals and communities prefer as it underscores the importance of their identity in their experiences and self-identification. To me it's not that deep, it's just easier to say and the first one feels like   annoying virtue signaling and a lot of times people like that do nothing but empty bullshit like that   that does nothing objectively helpful and if anything further stigmatizes us.

Creativity

I am aware it is controversial but I am guilty of really enjoying making AI Art.    I put a ton of time into my projects and consider it a deep passion of mine. It got me back into art after neglecting it for years because of shit mental health. So just a heads up I will be incorporating   my  designs into my blog.
