I advocate for non-human animal rights, human rights, environmentalism, veganism, feminism, lgbtiq rights, Indigenous rights, secularism, skepticism, evidence-based reasoning and critical thinking and oppose systems of oppression, discrimination and exploitation in whatever form they come in. I spend my time writing, working as a freelance graphic designer and volunteering my time and graphic design skills with different campaigns and organisations.
I'm interested in relationship anarchy, treating each and every personal relationship as its own unique entity that can't be reduced down to the generic social normative concepts of 'friendship', 'relationship' or 'open relationship'. The rules of each relationship are determined by the individuals involved through communication and mutually voluntary agreement rather than rigid assumed adherence to social norms. I have no time for the institute of marriage.
I identify as agender so they/their/them pronouns would be nice :) I am also against gendering pretty much everything, as gendering doesn't really make much sense when you think about it.
I hang out with our two rescued bunnies a lot (see photo).
Taking action when there is oppression, discrimination and exploitation that can be stopped.
Cooking. I've been told my tofu scramble is ok.
Also an eclectic mix of alt/punk/etc: Ben Folds/Five, TMBG, Regurgitator, Less Than Jake, Machine Gun Fellatio, Ok Go, NOFX, Propagandhi, Rise Against, Talking Heads, The Aquabats, The Beatles, The Dandy Warhols, PUSA.
I read science fiction and sometimes fantasy and detective novels as well as non-fiction books on science and nature.
Often watch science fiction, action (e.g. comics, dark comedy) and alternative movies and tv shows as well as not surprisingly science and nature documentaries. <3 Sagan and Attenborough. Red Dwarf, Firefly, Blackadder sort of tv.
I enjoy cooking and live on a healthy plant-based diet as an expression of my vegan ethics. Favourite cuisines that I cook are Mexican, Thai, Indian and Japanese.
