Hello all! I'm a genderqueer (they/them/theirs) software engineer located in the New York, USA area. I like #sciencefiction, #storygames, #rockclimbing, #knitting, #cooking, #tea, #history, #cats, and #dogs. My political ideals are best described by Social Anarchism. I'm an agnostic vegetarian but I have no interest in convincing you to be either of those things. I like reading about #youthrights, delicious #vegan recipes, #harmreduction, #policeabolition, and utopian societies!

They simply put it all down to 'In the beginning was the verb,' end of story? I'm not sure, dear Professor.
