Do Not Decaffeinate The Ducks

Dynamite Lady from Duck County travels in search of a place in life, some way to define myself while resisting being defined by others. Political theorist, recovering self-harmer, crime fiction addict, duck obsessive, goth, vegan, gourmand of caffeine sources (although not ones that involve cat shit, see the bit about being vegan) and probably more if I had the energy. Currently expatriated in Scotland.

I believe in freedom of speech. A key part of that is the belief that disgusting or stupid viewpoints should be aired and subsequently exposed to criticism and ridicule. I like the last bit very much.

That said, I don't always see it as my duty to provide a platform for such views. If you post a comment that is sexist, racist, homophobic or promoting animal cruelty, be aware that it will only be published subject to the criteria above, i.e. I will exercise my own freedom of speech by mocking your comment until I get bored or find something better to do. Alternatively, I may decide not to let you occupy my personal space. Get some of your own. The internet (indeed, Livejournal) has many such places ripe for Lockean appropriation.

In case you found me through a link or my other blog, I'd better warn you that this is my personal space where I feel perfectly free to ramble on about ducks, coffee, henna, vegan cheese sauce, favourite bands, Harry Potter, clothes, makeup and ducks. Then I might talk about ducks some more. I have also been known to snark about stuff you might not agree with, and I'm a lot less restrained than I am in other forums. I'm not going to censor either my opinions or the way I express them - live with that. If you don't like any of that, it isn't my problem. Disagreement is fine, all it takes is a bit of respect. If you do like it, read on. This entry contains tips on my version of friending etiquette.

Increasing Veganicity: where I talk veganism, in case you were wondering.

Happy Ducky Gothness Where I list the things that make life better

Curious about the title? This song will tell you what you want to know. It's been kind of my anthem for the last few years.

These links are a bit quiet but I may as well leave them here:

  • My DeviantART page

  • Opuscular Outpost

  • Culture hits and gendered bits (Joint project with miss_blu)

  • End Circus Cruelty

  • I moderate
    anarchisttheory and vegan_knitters
    I am also the author of fiery_moment, related to the song linked to above.
    If any of those sound like your scene, drop in. I'll put some fairly-traded caffienous liquid on the stove in preparation. :)

    my pet!

    my pet!

    Here are some sites I find interesting/useful (nb: that doesn't imply that I agree with Every. Word. Ever. on any of them)

    Unfuck Your Habitat
    Eat the Seasons
    The Organic Sister
