+ I'm a Christian. A radical, queer Christian.
Please note: I have no interest in trying to convert anyone, but Christian theology, liturgy, etc. is one of the things I can talk about ad infinitum.
+ I'm educating myself a lot about various axes of oppression (racism/white privilege, disability, etc.) and am really attentive about the language I use (gendered language, pejorative slang that references mental illness, etc.). I'm not "policing" people to harsh their squee; I'm interested in making all aspects of life more life-giving for all people. (I'm also invested in honesty, consistency, and inclusion.)
+ I don't actually like to talk politics.
Because I always feel woefully under-informed about any particular issue. And yet.
+ I'm a big proponent of HAES (Health At Every Size -- see also, fat-acceptance). I support people adjusting their food consumption (and any other aspect of their habits/lifestyle) in order to be healthier, but I really don't wanna hear about you being "on a diet." I don't wanna hear weight numbers being used as a proxy for health. I don't wanna hear people being "bad" or "good" because of their food consumption (food consumption is value-laden in many real ways, and we can totally have conversations about that, but "I'm being good, so I'm just having salad" is a no-go).
+ I'm sex-positive, and I try to be a kink and poly advocate. This does not mean I'm interested in having sex (or being kinky or poly) with YOU necessarily.
My own personal sexual ethics are ... complicated.
+ I came of age in fandom, and while I'm not very fannishly active these days, it's still where I live to a large extent, and it has and continues to inform so many of the ways I engage with texts.
+ I prefer to identify as "queer" on account of the way "bisexual" implies a gender binary (I'm willing to accept the binary of "people of my own gender" and "people of not my own gender," but that feels like stretching the meaning of the word).
