Had an epiphany recently

31 Dec

Until very recently, I considered myself a Discordian; then, while I was still on Tumblr, I was doing a belief system 30 day challenge & realized I didn’t really know why I was a Discordian. I knew what I liked about Discordianism, but there’s plenty I like about various religions I’m not part of. I did a Tarot reading recently & one of the things it told me was that I was the only thing holding me back from finding a spiritual path.

I realized that, no matter where I end up, Eris will be there with me. She’s literally in my head. She’s my Goddess & any path I take is gonna need to be one She can be a part of.

That’s all I’ve gotten so far, but I’d like to think that’s a pretty good step in the right direction.

That post on alcohol and consent I promised on Twitter is coming, but it’s gotten more involved than originally planned. To really do it properly, I need statistics & such. That sort of research is a pain, so I need to wait until I’m on my computer.

I think introductions are in order…

23 Dec

My name’s RenĂ©. I’m a 23-year-old undergrad student at Ole Miss. I’m a non-binary trans person, ze/hir pronouns (this isn’t negotiable–I will not acknowledge any comments that refer to me with a different set of third-person pronouns).

I enjoy watching TV shows and movies, reading books, playing video games, and critiquing various elements of each of these. I like to talk about politics. I’m on a journey to find the right religious/spiritual path for me & I’ll probably share some of my experiences along the way.

I haven’t completely formulated a solid comments policy, but trolling, unapologetic bigotry, or any combination of the two, will not be tolerated. No, this does not violate your freedom of speech; I’m not the government & therefore have nothing to do with your freedom of speech. The 1st Amendment does not require every person ever to allow you a platform to say whatever you want.

Having said that, feel free to use the comments section for any questions, concerns, refutations, etc. I hope we can learn a lot from each other & have some fun too.
