Hi all!

I’m Shoshie, and I’m super excited to be guest blogging here for the next two weeks! I write occasionally over at my blog, Catalytic Reactions. I’m 25, currently living in sunny Seattle. I love hyphens, exclamation points, and the serial comma. I’m a more-religious-than-most-but-less-religious-than-many Ashkenazi Jew. I’m also a DEATHFAT, meaning I fall into the morbidly obese category on the BMI chart we all know and love. I entered blogging through the Fat-o-sphere, when I failed my last diet about 4 years ago. I’m also bisexual, cis, and married to an awesome feminist man. I have aquamarine hair, wear lots of lime green, and always keep something on my head. I’m a chemist-in-training, which means I spend a lot of time in my lab and will not be constantly accessible by computer. When I’m not playing with brightly colored solutions, I enjoy crafting, gardening, cooking, dancing, and peering into tide pools.

I’m not entirely sure how comments will be moderated at the moment. A lot of it depends on you guys. I plan to write a bit about religious feminism and fat acceptance, which I know have been heated topics here in the past. But for now, I’m going to leave things more-or-less open and just ask y’all to try to treat each other with respect. I may ban folks, go to total moderation, or close comments altogether if things get out of hand.

That said, I’m really, really thrilled to be writing here, and looking forward to to some interesting discussion!

    I’m interested to hear how religion has most hindered, as well as most fostered your feminism and self confidence. Either way, I look forward to your writing.
