Name:firecat (attention machine in need of calibration)
Birthdate:1961
Location:California, United States of America
50ish, fat, white, poly, queer, demi-pansexual, disabled, genderqueer, butch kitty. Pronouns: ze/zir, they/them (whichever offends your sense of grammar least). Pink and green. Feminist. Trying to get a grasp on privilege. Pagan agnostic Buddhist. Wordsmith by trade. Frequently cranky. Frequently charmed. I used to have deep ambivalence about Hello Kitty; now I have deep ambivalence about steampunk. I like to volunteer for the local animal shelter, play with beads and wire, knit and crochet, write poetry. Fannish interests include Babylon 5, Sherlock Holmes, Star Trek.
Posting habits:
Some of my posts are filtered, mainly so that random relatives, colleagues, and robots don't stumble across unwanted bits of information about me by accident. I grant access to most sentient life forms who subscribe.
Subscription habits:
I sometimes go on sprees of adding journals to my reading list, e.g., of people who attend Wiscon or have other interests in common with me. No obligation is implied.
Moderation policy:
I rarely mess with comments in my journal but I will do so if I see things I don't want, including othering, personal attacks, and promotion of weight loss.
Because of comment spam, only people with accounts can comment on my posts.
Other places you might be able to find me, in alphabetical order.
