A new journal/blog.
A new beginning.

I have some vague ideas of how I want to use this, and I do indeed want to use it. But first, I think I need to determine how I am using everything else. Let's see. There's I'm Just Not Impressed, my woefully underused politics/issues blog; Waisting Away, my similarly underused was-originally-weight-loss-but-I-found-HAES-along-the-way blog, and two LJs - one semi-public gothy/politics/life/random stuff journal which is connected to a lot of my public face for the past 15 or so years and one super sekrit place to hide.

And now this baby.

In my wildest fantasies, should I ever actually become a published author who anyone gives two whits about, this - tied as it is to my actual public persona on twitter and various blog comments - will become my public face.

But for now, who knows...

Everyone else can move along:

Children are:
A. Precious little miracles who must be nurtured at all times.
B. Adorable little people in training who must be encouraged to be themselves at all times.
C. Individuals who must be taught how to fit into society until they are old enough to make their own choices.
D. Howling little barbarians who need to be trained to be human.

I know I've been quiet lately. But one of the things I've been doing is being more active in communities. My usual suspects are [livejournal.com profile] feminist_rage (where I'm also a mod), [livejournal.com profile] feminist , and increasingly, [livejournal.com profile] cf_debate .

A new one those communities is [livejournal.com profile] racism_101 , basically, a place for (white) folks fighting their way through their privilege to help each other learn how to "fail better next time." It is similar in that context to [livejournal.com profile] debunkingwhite , but is definitely more at the 101 level (similar to [livejournal.com profile] feminist_101  with a lot of questions and this-is-how-I-deal-with-this responses and disagreements and discussions). Right now it seems to be mostly a bunch of us who know each other within one or two degrees.

If it sounds like someplace that might be interesting, check it out, eh?
