Rue. 26. Mastering Out. Comic enthusiast. Behavioral neuroendocrinologist. Hypersomniac. Tea afficionado. Really really white. Married. Knows Spanish (sorta). Loves: crossovers, gender-bending, women being awesome, cats, otters, seals, cephalopods and owls.
I study how hormones act on the brain to influence behavior: hence, behavioral neuro(brain)endocrinology(hormones). I look at sex differences within females, so application of my field goes all the way down to molecular mechanisms and all the way up to sociology. My day job is pretty awesome, but I’ve got to get my head on straight if I want to go further in academia, so I’m leaving grad school in May.
On this blog, you’ll see lots of pretty things or cool things from the greater world outside, and all the musings any personal blog is wont to have. I like Bioware games, and you’re likely to see some Avengers (the movie), Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra, My Little Pony, Sailor Moon, and various superhero comics here, mostly for their aesthetics and the talented artists who explore them.
I have four other blogs as well.
Justice, Like Lightning — A fuckyeah blog for the Thunderbolts, my favorite superteam.
Unlicensed Super Hero — My fanblog for my comics-related nonsense. Fair warning: I have been obsessed with Booster Gold and Blue Beetle for over a year now.
Wombs On Strike — Feminism, civil rights, social justice, and all the things that I care about but make me miserable if I let myself get carried away.
Tourist In The Waking World — A photoblog just for gorgeous pictures.
Here is a picture of me if I were a Disney princess.
And here is one of me as a My Little Pony.
And here is me as a dude.
I am more than a little vain.
