I'm 23 now. Favourite people include andrea dworkin, melissa farley, nikki craft, john stoltenberg, shere hite, ntozake shange, francesca lia block, the manic street preachers, tori amos, pj harvey, kathleen hanna, propagandhi, margaret atwood, christine stark, sheila jeffreys, and assorted awesome friends. i am determined to be an incorrigible radical feminist (none if that wimpy liberal or moderate feminism for me). my fave type of food are fruit. i'm a struggling vegan--struggling because beggars can't be choosers.

Demonista has had the amazing talent to be banned from (*wring teh drama hands*):
go figure. communities supposedly inclusive of radical feminism, anti-porn, and such are inconsistently so when you actually place your beliefs on the line. others have told me of how they've been silenced through self-censorship and attacks on their beliefs when they've stated they're opposed to sadopatriarchy ("bdsm"), porn, etc. it's their comm, so they can run it how they wish, but i think they should be more honest.

"capital letters are overrated." - me

"i dunno why. i just know it is." - me failing at being philosophical ;)

"I'm a radical feminist. Not the fun kind." - Andrea Dworkin

"but i am fun. a lot of the times. i'm just not naive. or vapid. nor do i stick my head in the sand and go "lalala! patriarchy doesn't exist! it's just my imagination!"" - me again
