Hey, everyone!

I’m happy to announce that I’m the newest blogger on this awesome Feministe team! A big thanks to Jill for inviting me and to my fellow bloggers for welcoming me. (And to Jill, have a good break. I strongly believe in blogging breaks for sanity’s sake. Looking forward to your return.)

A bit about me: I’m a stateside-born Puerto Rican, queer, genderqueer butch, originally from New Jersey and now living in Brooklyn. I’m a techie and tech trainer who works primarily with non-profit progressive community organizations. I’ve been blogging in some form or another for almost 10 years now, most recently over at AngryBrownButch. I’ll be continuing my blogging over there, too.

Before the past week or so I’d been on a bit of an informal blogging hiatus so I feel a bit out of the blogosphere loop, but I’m happy to be back and excited and energized to be blogging here. I hope I can contribute some good stuff to this tremendous community that folks have created here!

    This is to American friends Jack and Holly. You visit to Pakistani feminists site
    and always very welcome, never silencing, and now you are sisters to Pakistani girls, nothing any differences, no way, we kiss you!!
    We want full, unrestrcited and open debate on Islam and Feminism, hijab, American support for gendery tyranny abroad, the entire thing. This debate is huge and it is need also, we need all to come out in the open, cos now we got this simmering on all sides, many many Americans is support us also, and let the Muslimas come and say their stuff also. So what we are asking, is can you open a thread on this and monitor also, so all our issues can be discussed, this post will be huge, it’s a massive issue and everyone wants involve and final say, this is for Jack and Holly. I asking Jack and Holly, why… cos some idea that they somewhat sympathy with Pakistani girls, this is what we think. If you got sympathy, then please please please allow us chance to speak and state our case about hijab and Islam and women. This is all we want, not more.
