Angelic Eve. Oxymoron or Truth In Advertising
Well, that remains to be seen, I guess, but basically I like a lot of
“scary” stuff, like bugs, snakes, bears, spiders, and then some not so
scary stuff like human rights, or, wait, is that scary too? I’ve been
involved in GLBT rights since the ’90s, which was a scary decade for a
lot of us. I am trans, I am queer (these are separate), I am a disabled
person, and rather spiritual. I am a quiet introvert. I primarily do
Internet activism these days, and give counsel to some younger crip
folks. This is my personal blog, dedicated to things that are sorta
scary but don’t have to be, sorta like me. I’ve been called intimidating
and, well, that’s up to you. I’m not exactly an angel but then again
I’m not exactly “the devil” either, but it was fun being called that. (I
almost bought devil horns. I mean go big or go home, right?) So this
is a place for theoretical oxymorons like a crip with a sex drive, a
medium who believes in science AND angels, and so on. (Although if you
want more on that particular topic in depth I have a blog soon to be
housed at disabilityandfaith.com which is on, you guessed it, disability and faith.
Actually, I’m a geek and I like boy stuff, and I’m trans and I am a
female-bodied person who identifies as a geek girl and a mama bear.
(It’s called being pangender, which means I get to be all the genders
possible if I want to–that’s how I feel normally and it’s awesome.
Yep…so that’s me.
One day I almost bought a snake from an acquaintance. She was a
harmless corn snake who loved cuddles and scritches and I wanted to name
her Eve. This blog is also in her honor even though her food was
officially not allowed in my apartment by my roommates. Since she
couldn’t come home with me and be my ironically named snake, she lives
on here on the Internet. So does the “biblical” Eve (who didn’t
originate in the bible, but much earlier if you ask my MUCH more
Catholic than me friend P.) because she’s just fucking cool. K? And not
evil. Cause I don’t live in a fundie paradise where all women are to
be judged, even though I am not really female-identified anymore.
Enjoy your stay!
P.S.: Found this and came to this conclusion somehow about my snake
without even knowing this (that’s how mediums roll, amirite?):
It has been suggested that the Hebrew name Eve (חַוָּה) also bears resemblance to an Aramaic word for “snake” (O.Arb.: חוה; J.Arm.: חִוְיָא).
Thank you, wikipedia. ;) I like being smart!
