Blithe Femme (previously titled Scarlett's Scrap of Sassafras) is the second iteration of my personal website which I use and plan to use for a whole bunch of things, with the only real connective tissue between them being me. As it is right now, there's bloggy things, creative work that I drop, and some things that feel more like a personal journal. I'm leaving my options open, this can go anywhere.
I'm Scarlett! I'm a trans lesbian, and my pronoun is "she".
The rural northwoods is my home. I feel a deep love for the region despite the feeling not being mutual.
I'm an English Education student! I plan on teaching high school or, if I win the lottery, going into academia myself.
I'm a beginner doing digital art using libre software. Blender and GIMP are naturally my tools of choice.
Words are my great love in this world. I like art of all kinds, but I feel particularly connected to the complexities that words make possible. That's part of why I've been reserved in making "wordy" things myself, I respect words too much and I get anxious. Hopefully this site will help me with that.
I'm a radical leftist but I expect this to be more in the background of my writing here. My beliefs go deep but I don't see much of a point in preaching on a site made for myself. Might do it anyway if I get frustrated!
I'm a technoromanticist in training.
I value warm, genuine people and art more than anything else in this world. I model myself after them. My natural state is cold and detached, and I'm doing everything I can to escape that.
Otherwise an anxious trans socialist vegetarian straight-edge lesbian who wants to be sincere and warm above all else.
I'm interested in free culture, anime, literature, hip hop, computing history, folk music, interactive fiction, esoteric online communities, tea, feminism, anti-racism, Romanticism, and rural americana.
I love you.
