Personal Interests

If your most basic right is the right to life, then it seems obvious to me that you have the right to defend your life. Guns are, in this century, the most effective means of doing so - so effective that every genocide has only been carried out against victims who were disarmed by their governments.
Weird Science
Sometimes, the scientific establishment is more interested in defending its position than in studying data that conflicts with that position. Sometimes it's right, sometimes it's wrong. Either way, the stuff at the fringes can be interesting - or at least amusing.
Science Fiction and Fantasy
I've been fascinated by science fiction and fantasy since I got my hands on a copy of "Tales From the White Hart" when I was six years old.
Anime and Manga
I have to thank the folks at the Neo-Tokyo anime club in Madison, Wisconsin, for introducing me to real anime, not the stuff that had been Macek'ed or DiC'ed. Thanks to you guys, I now score low enough on my otaku purity to worry my family....
I'm interested in all sorts of music, from blues to J-pop. Sorry, no files here.
I enjoy cooking, when I have the time and energy to really get into it. This is where you'll find some of my favorite recipes.
When you've got multiple chemical sensitivities, fibromyalgia, and arthritis, you tend to develop an interest in health - and how you might be able to find some.
Every single person who's old enough to know about it is interested in it - from the obsessiveness of the anti-sex crusader to the mercantilism of the sex industry. You won't find any smut here, but you will find links to positive sites in various areas.
"The Homosexual Agenda"
As far as I'm concerned, the only real "homosexual agenda" is the desire to be treated as human beings. We aren't some subhuman species, biological mistakes, or vile sinners. We're just people who happen to love people of our own sex.
Abuse and Domestic Violence
As a survivor of both childhood and marital abuse, I think it's important that the male victims and survivors have their stories told.
