Let me clarify: a little fancy cheese from my favorite cheese shop in Austin once in a while, in addition to the food I need for survival.

I was tagged by productsofpoverty!
- What is the meaning of your username? That feminism. It’s pretty cool.
- What is your birth order (i.e., only child? oldest? youngest? middle?)? Biological birth order, oldest. Blended birth order, middle. I’m a question mark wrapped in an enigma.
- What are the top three things you want to do before you die? I should probably have an answer to this question. Hm. I’d like to have a grown-up, egalitarian, healthy relationship with a person (even if it’s just for a while). I’d like to become more zen about dying before it actually happens to me. And… hm. I’m going to say, go to the fjords? Kayak them and then hike them. Holler!
- What are your plans for this summer? Working! And, hopefully, getting into a political campaign school. Also weddings.
- Where do you see yourself five years from now? I have absolutely no idea. Hopefully alive, maybe in a PhD program? I just hope that whatever I’m doing, it makes me happy.
- How do you cope with stress? Horribly.
- What has been one high point of your week? BKC Tuesdays with my friends and tiny horse cookies!
- Where is your favorite place to be? Anywhere with people I love.
- Who inspires you the most? I don’t know, I don’t have just one person that I look to necessarily. There are so many people who are good at so many things. Some of my friends inspire me because of their faith. Some professors inspire me to do what I believe and push to make the world a better place, like they do. Many of the women in my life inspire me to be a strong, independent person who thinks for herself. And there are many feminist thinkers (famous and tumblrs) who inspire me to expand my understanding of what being a feminist means every day.
- What is one thing that you are extremely passionate about? Chocolate. Oh, and feminism.
- If you could give anyone one piece of advice, what would you say? “Be who you are, and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” This was my mantra way before it came close to being my reality. But I would add this: “…UNLESS you are racist, sexist, ableist, homophobic, transphobic, cissexist, heteronormative, classist, and/or fatphobic, because in that case, the people who mind are right and the people who don’t mind are probably douchebags, too.”
Now I am tagging: humanpieceoftoast, the-status-is-not-quo, perfectlyqueer, ninjabrianhasanstd, shinyquips, amomentarydistraction, melyficent, livelovefeminism, teaandbiscuitsfeminism, paeacefuleyes, and thebathroomsguy.
Your questions are:
- If you had a week and everything was free, where would you go and what would you do?
- If you could only eat three things for the rest of your life, what would they be?
- How do you feel about the word “moist”?
- What is your dream, utopia, fanciful world in your mind job?
- Who do you ship above all ships? (If you don’t know what that means, holler)
- What do you think is the most important issue facing people right now?
- How do you feel about Barack Obama?
- When you picture yourself “settling down,” or however you want to say it, where are you?
- Your relationship is coffee is:
- When I say “ice cream” you say:
- What part of your body do you love the most?
Because this will go on a shelf in a library and no one will ever see it, I am sharing my acknowledgement page here.
Thanks must also go to the Degens, who opened their home to me in the beginning stages of my research. To my parents: Cheryl, Christopher, and Pamela for always being open to my new theories of “what this project is really about.” To my informal and invaluable editor Alexander, no amount of cupcakes could ever repay my scholarly debt to your investment in my work. And finally, to the sounding boards who believed in my work and my ability to produce this thesis even in the moments when I could not: Laura, Catherine, Marianne, Alyssa, Jeff, Jen, Aimee, Rachel, and Kaitlyn.
Hanging out with my feminist family.
I LOVE when conversations include contraceptive models, discussions of how pelvic bones move during pregnancy and birth, gender politics, and sex positivity.
Ahhhhh why can’t life be like this?
My friend just joined tumblr! He is engaged (or… whatever the feminist pagan ritual non-wedding version of that is) to the awesome [paeacefuleyes] and he is SO feminist and fierce and queer and all things awesome (also brilliant). So far he’s posted two sentences, but I feel confident that much more awesome stuff will follow.
