Hi Everyone! Wow, I’m so excited to be blogging here for two weeks that I barely know what to do with myself. For those who don’t know much about me, I’m one of the regular commentors around these parts. Although most of my bio is scattered in comments all over this blog, I’m not going to recap some of the more personal details here because my current job does not allow a person to blog under their real identity. Bummer I know. But since I love my job, I’ll stick to generalities. For example, I’m a white (ish), cis, het, monogamous, partnered, (mostly) TAB-NT woman.
I’m also a lawyer who does some pro bono domestic violence and children’s rights advocacy as well as general poverty law. I’ll probably talk about each of those a bit in the coming days and try to convince you to support some worthy causes.
More importantly, I’m interested in what you guys think because I think the commentariat is pretty damn wise. So I’m planning to ask some questions maybe even get a little meta on the topic of what social justice means. (Because me being meta would be SUCH a surprise.)
You may also know that I’m partnered with the amazing Mr. Kristen J. and we have an adorable dog we’ll call Chi. I might talk about interracial relationships/marriages or how ridiculous I think *all* relationship advice is. It depends on whether you all have an interest. I will definitely post pictures of my puppy and talk about how awesome she is because, yeah, I’m one of those people.
In fact, let’s start with a puppy picture…because who could flame this face?
