thedivinegoat: Welsh Flag Sheep dreaming of the Dreamwidth Icon (Dreamsheep - Wales)

*Waves* at all the new people from [personal profile] liv's Friending Meme!

I'm afraid I'm not a prolific poster, but at least I won't spam your reading page. ;-)

I live in the Brecon Beacons with my four kids and my husband of twelve years and am a SAHM, and struggle with how society wants to define me by those facts.

I'm a feminist, and in the last few years have started to educate myself in social justice and the intersecctions of oppression, many via the many discussions in Fandom, and viarious blogs the discussions have lead me to.

I've been in on-line Fandom since 1999 and on LJ since 2002, and joined Dreamwidth during closed beta. I volunteer on the anti-spam team, and can be found hanging out in IRC.

I'm passionate about feminist parenting, and parental rights, and one of these days I'm going to work out the issues surrounding childcare and train as a Doula. (This will also involve sorting our my issues with education, but one step at a time. ;-) )

I love Photography (see my previous post) and am crafty in various ways, but am jealous of people who can knit. (I used to be able to knit when I was child, I've lost the ability to since then). I produce a fanwork roughly once every 1.37 years, and have a couple of fanvids and some fanfiction to my name.

I'm dyslexic, and get self concious of my spelling, grammar and word choice, which is small reason why I'm so bad at replying to comments, but is more to do with the fact I'm the queen of procrastination. ;-)

I'm passionate about Dreamwidth and the community here, and am always happy to expand my reading list.

*Waves Back* Hello from across the Atlantic! I got to visit Wales for the first time this past summer, taking some of my students on a trip to Ireland the UK. Didn't get through Brecon Beacons (although I have heard of it!), sadly. We came in on the ferry from Dublin, drove across the north (stopped in that amazing half-finished castle across from Snowdonia for a bit), saw the town with the longest name, and stayed overnight in a lovely inn just inside the country before the border with England. Then, I went down to Cardiff for two days after my students and fellow teachers had flown home from London. Everything I've seen in the country is gorgeous.

Looking forward to reading more from you!

Hi! I have also lost the ability to knit, but plan to try again this coming winter.

I love the way your Welsh dragon is nibbling on the dreamsheep's ear!

Hi there! I have to say I LOVE your username :D

Don't ever worry about spelling or grammar or anything if/when you reply to anything of mine. It's never an issue!

I've only started educating myself in feminism in the last couple of years too. Yay personal growth!

kerravonsen: "Maybe I could write him a note..." (articulate-on-paper)
From: [personal profile] kerravonsen
Nearly every thing I've learnt about anti-oppression I've learnt, if not directly from fandom, then at least via fandom.
For me, most of what I've learned about feminism and Male Privilege has been through LinuxChix, but that doesn't mean I haven't learned stuff through fandom too. It's all the connections of people who know random bits of interestingness.

Oh yeah, I definitely intend to go there one day. It's high on my list of 'Places to visit when I win a million dollars'. XD The woes of being unemployed, or I'd be saving already. :(

Hello from the friending meme! It's awesome finding more people to read. I have been learning more about social justice recently, mostly through fandom - it's a tricky path to negotiate, but I really like the process of getting more aware. :D

As I tend to be curious, might I ask when you subscribed and where we crossed paths?

(I have notifications wrt subscribing disabled, which makes figuring these things out difficult.)
