Likes: people, computers*, books, dancing, making things
Intersectional feminism is not optional.
*computers are a gateway to people. Someone designed it, someone wrote the software you're using, someone's going to read/consume what you write/create with it, and if you're coding, someone's going to see your code. Computers are *excellent* for connecting with people.
Occasionally struggling with mental health. When this happens, if you bring me tea and a hug I will be grateful.
I am not fussy about the pronouns you use for me, although most used to he/him/his. If you understand how this displays privilege, you might understand how little I like traditional masculine roles.
Cheering up small children.
Dancing at the London Tap Jam.
Playing board games less often than I would choose to.
Making things at the London HackSpace
Movies: Deadpool. I desperately wish more films passed the Bechdel test. (Deadpool passing is ... debatable: http://bechdeltest.com/view/6722/deadpool )
Shows: Community, Orange is the new Black. I no longer have Netflix, want to re-watch the latest seasons with me?
Favourite music: Jazz. But then again, Rock. Not to mention Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor, Anais Mitchell and Ani di Franco's work, and Newton Faulkner is just brilliant.
Food: Unashamed carnivore, very keen on vegetables. Not a fan of processed food. Thai, and anything spicy. Chilli tolerance: moderate. Yes, I can cook. I can cook gluten free, dairy free, nut free and vegan all in the same meal for up to 20 people and have people ask for seconds.
Especially message me if you can recommend a good book.
Double especially if the good book you can recommend has explicitly non-white people in it, a non-male protagonist or is generally not your standard cliche'd young white male on a quest.
You like board games, want to find out about me, or just want to chat.
You are willing to discuss feminism with me and help me to be a better human being by it.
Lovely people, I would actually welcome you messaging me first, just so you know.
