inner determinations of mind

the I, she, or it that thinks

This journal contains adult themes.

That's because I am an adult. I discuss topics such as contraception, abortion, mental illness, feminism, porn, politics, literature, film, and, occasionally, philosophy. I also swear whenever I feel so inclined.

If this sounds too grown up for you, you should stop scrolling now, and click away from this page. Kthnxbai.

As of 2009-12-15 all content is cross-posted from my dreamwidth account. You can comment on either site, but I do import comments from LJ to DW every few months, so be aware that your comments here will show up there, eventually, and may be read and replied to by people on DW.

I will continue to read people on my f'list who post on lj, but I doubt I'll be adding new people over here.

All the uncredited icons on my userpics page were made by me. Some of them I made for sharing. Others I made just because I wanted them. I can't control what people do on teh interwebs, but it would be appreciated if people asked before using my icons, and mentioned that they were made by me on their userpics page.
