What do I say to summarize myself? I’m a middle-aged grandmother who is pursuing a degree in biomedical informatics. I am a giant geek and proud of it! I am also a big ol’ butch lesbian and proud of that too! I am black and I’m proud. I’m an American and glad to be one.
I am passionate and opinionated thus this blog. My first love is writing, thus this blog.
My passions are science, skepticism, politics, academic achievement, chess, D&D (well, Pathfinder now that D&D is a miniatures game)jazz, blues and classical music and the movement for queer people, in all our form and splendor, to become folded into the umbrella that we call ‘citizen’.
Politically I am a Rawlsian and Darwinian Liberal (if you don’t know what that is, keep reading my blog, I’ll write about it one day) and a reluctant Democratic voter most times. But I’m not a doctrinaire liberal. I hold positions that get me in trouble on the Left–my spirited defense of Enlightenment rationalism being just one example.
I live in Portland, OR with my wife, the love of my life for whom I strive to be the woman I see reflected in her eyes when she says “I love you”. We have three cats, a bearded dragon, a fish and an Old English sheepdog.
