I am a mid-twenties avid intersectional feminist, advocate, fighter, counselor, and friend. I will be graduating from Bucknell University in May with degrees in Psychology and Women’s & Gender Studies. I work with survivors of sexual assault and other trauma, and I fix computers for a living.
I often blog about what it is like to live at the intersections of a few different mental illnesses, queerness, and sexuality, along with posts about sexism, racism, rape culture, and LGBT rights. There is a trigger warning for these on my entire blog. You will see posts about depression, eating disorders, PTSD, panic disorder, and fat activism. This has been my safe space for four years now, and I reserve the right to ask you to leave it if necessary.

For women, for People of Color, for survivors, for LGBT& identified people, for loving parents of special-needs kids, for people who need healthcare and can’t afford it, for people who need access to abortion or contraceptives, for people under the poverty line, for the middle class, for activists and people who care and supporters and friends and lovers and parents and children. I am TIRED of having to justify the fact that we all exist. I am TIRED of having to justify our claim to equal rights and equal treatment under the law.
This is why I’m voting Democrat. They don’t have all the answers (cause really, who does), but they’re better than the alternatives. Please stop trying to shove us back decades and centuries in our rights. I’m tired of fighting with you.
