I'm pleased to get to read your blogging again!

I am tired of whitefolks having 'objective', abstract discussions about the realities of my life and the lives of people I care about.

I'm so much there with you. This 'scientific method' approach to racism, where white people believe you can have objective observers and finite measurements ... and then, of course, devil's advocate arguments for the sake of 'balance' ... ugh.

About Jen

A 20-something fat, queer woman of colour living in Australia.

Reading: Fond of speculative and YA fiction, social justice theory in various forms. Would love to see more rounded fat/queer/female/of colour (and multiples of the above) characters in fiction.

Writing: Sometimes blogs at Hoyden About Town, dabbles in fiction now and then, hoping to find her creativity again.

Watching: Fond of sci-fi/fantasy television, with a strange weakness for cop shows. Would love to see more rounded fat/queer/female/of colour (and multiples of the above) characters on television.
