So, I'm Sorta Back.

Yes, I drifted away from LJ/DW, entertaining myself with the frivolity of Farcebook and the supposedly serious environs of Medium. I even used my wallet name on Twitter.


After a while it felt like I was exposed, my self raw for the world to abuse, judged for my name, gender, gender presentation, age, disability and occupation rather than the content I wrote. I'm not used to having my personal and professional life so damned intertwined.

I have decided that my primary posting location will be Dreamwidth, because fuck Russia.

Most of my stuff will stay friends only. My paranoia is starting to get tweaked by the creeps in the White House and Congress.

I would like to offer a smack upside the head to all the people who have been using my wallet name and my pseudonym interchangeably. It is very uncomfortable, especially nowadays, especially as I'm finally allowing myself to explore why I don't fit my birth gender identity. (People who've known me a long time know that I haven't been comfortable as "female" for most of my life, but don't have a burning need to perform masculinity either.)

Anyway, hi to people I haven't talked to in a while.

little boxes
Don't let yourself get put in any of them little boxes Malvina Reynolds sang about, that are all made of ticky tacky and all look the same. And don't put yourself into a different box to avoid being put in one they try to fit you into. Procrustean things that chop or stretch your soul to fit, boxes is. But very popular.

Also, Russia... There's creeps in the Kremlin, and desperate folks doing harsh things, but that's not something you'll find only there.

I don't think I know your wallet name, only ever known Ravan...
