Greetings, you may call me Annabella.
I am a woman who grew up in a fundamentalist Penticostal Christian home. I had many siblings of whom half fall somewhere on the LGBT spectrum (genetic factors anyone?). As a result of the unavoidable tension between that living environment and our identities the non-normative portion of my family had been somewhat scattered to the wind and been at risk up to and including loss of life. Thankfully all of us made it "out" alive in the end and have been able to reconnect and help support one another.
To say that the overall direction of my life has been effected by religiously motivated bigotry would be an understatement.
That being said I take a pragmatic and polite approach to the discussion of religion and philosophy (at least as much so as I can) and honestly care about the feelings of everyone involved.
I am looking forward to discussing these topics with all of you.
If anyone is curious, a few facts about me:
- Listening to "Let it go" from Frozen makes me cry, even if I just listened to it.
- I love detective stories, video games, and Japanese fashion.
- I have an addiction to mochi ice cream, pocki, and shoujo-ai manga. (or all three at once)
- My favorite anime is Madoka Magicka.
