I am Quinn Norman Capes-Ivy. I’m your average twentysomething queer and transgender parent, radical feminist, mentalist, cripple, emotionally unstable, arrogant, self-absorbed, narcissist. I have one husband, two ex-fiancés and a kid not fathered by any of them. I have diagnoses coming out of my ears. Life is a constant battle between me and my hair. One day I’ll be rich and famous, but I don’t know what for yet. I drink altogether too much tea and smoke altogether too many cigarettes. I love body modification of all kinds. If I could be an animal, I’d be a rat. I have the world’s most awesome and inspiring family and friends. I like to sleep in of a morning. Trying to be the best damn person I can be.
You can find me on Twitter where I waffle about the minutiae of my life and occasionally talk politics. I have a public Twitter account for talking to people who don’t follow me, and the occasional political stuff that people want to be able to retweet.
This blog also has its very own Facebook page – if you follow it you’ll get updates of new posts here, plus interesting links and general awesomeness.
Places I write:
- I am the maintainer of and a writer for Parenting Against the Patriarchy, an awesome feminist parenting blog.
- I keep a private, personal blog at LiveJournal/Dreamwidth.
- I write (somewhat bad!) poetry and prose over at deviantART.
- I was, in June 2010, happy to be a guest blogger over at The F Word (link leads to my own posts there).
If you have something burningly important you’d like to tell me and you don’t think commenting on the blog will be sufficient, you can email me.
