Says PATIENCE NEWBURY [patienceinbee]:
I’m pretty old — so old that Trudeau and I used to pound back spicy caesars at Expo 67 when I was about half the age that I am now. I still live in North America. Trudeau passed away in 2000. I miss that old firecracker.
Actually, I’m a hesitant scholar in some academic field (not worth revealing here) whose research and analytical skills assume a cape and a second life to bring to light what cisnormativity is, how it institutionally confines and places trans people, and why it denies the enfranchisement of trans people to be citizens on par with cis people. This project is a spin-off from the countless hours wasted on Reddit.
I could be prone to inviting guest essays and getting knee deep in the hoopla.
