I never read information pages, but I suppose I should have one, in case other people read them. I’m cissexual, female, bisexual but I identify as a lesbian while I’m in a relationship with a woman. White, able bodied and English speaking, I’m a Londoner living in New York as of September 2010. I practise Buddhism, in much the same way that I used to practise playing the guitar.
I am a palaeontologist by education and an educator by calling; I’m went straight from a PhD in dinosaur morphology to a Masters degree in education and I promise I’ll get a real job at some point. Ankylosaurs are the best dinosaurs and I will broke no argument on this.
Politically, I’m liberal and left-leaning, and the former is prioritised over the latter; I differentiate between legality and morality and do not think that immoral and illegal necessarily follow from each other. My politics are diversity politics and that informs my taste in fiction. I like comics, books, movies and TV shows to contain awesome characters of all races, sexualities and genders, and more besides.
As far as a comment policy goes: don’t be a git. I’m pretty liberal about comments, and am not likely to delete even if I dont’ like the content. But don’t be a git and we’ll get on fine.
