Watch As I Wave My Nerd Flag

Be prepared for a journey of nerdy excellence aboard the TARDIS, Starship Enterprise, and the Millennium Falcon. On occasion, I've also been known to drive a DeLorean. When not driving the DeLorean, I chill with my friends the Winchester brothers in their Metallicar (1967 Chevy Impala) listening to the greatest hits of mullet rock, saving people, and hunting things. You know, the family business.

Watch as I successfully wield the universe's only double-rainbow colored sonic lightsaber in the defense against droids, storm troopers, Daleks, Cybermen, Orcs, Uruk-hai, cave trolls, Nazgul, and Klingons. I'm also a skilled archer and quite handy with a sword. And a laser gun.

When not saving the universe, I like to read, knit, and dance.

This is Maria Christian, my former cast director at the Michigan Renaissance Festival as her character, Princess Isaade M’boukou. Maria’s been designing and wearing African-Elizabethan fusion garb to MiRF for decades, so she has a few different gowns and headpieces in rotation. In addition to her duties keeping the stage acts organized, as Isaade she acts as an impresario at the feasts, talks about West African traditions and folklore, and is much needed and treasured PoC representation on the cast.

I go to the Michigan RenFest every year and I remember see this woman’s amazing dresses. Fun fact, we also have The Nun, who roams the grounds in a period habit trying to save souls and punishing nonbelievers. She’s also a very awesome black woman.

That sounds amazing and terrifying.

A little privacy, please??

Black women have had to develop a larger vision of our society than perhaps any other group. They have had to understand white men, white women, and black men. And they have had to understand themselves. When black women win victories, it is a boost for virtually every segment of society.

Happy 70th birthday to one of my favourite sheroes ever!

"People are perfectly happy to see women as sex objects, but the actual biologic of our bodies is apparently gross and unmentionable."

Our Bodies, Ourselves.

The best part? If the string weren’t visible, this photo could be used in any number of advertisements without complaint.

The string is a reminder that we aren’t looking at a mannequin or sex doll. It also shows straight male viewers that the model is not currently sexually available to them, which is their greatest fear.

Ugh.

People with vaginas can safely have sex while menstruating….. But I digress.

We can, and I do, but not while a tampon is occupying the space. I should have clarified further.

The bookstore in my town has a racism section in honor of Ferguson and it gives me a lot of hope

Fun Fact: In the Marvel vs DC crossover it was established that Wonder Woman is in fact Worthy of wielding the hammer of Thor.

And then she put it down, because she thought it would be unworthy of her to take advantage of its power.

Wonder Woman’s standards are higher than Mjolnir’s.
