Hello (sortof)

Recommended Posts

Hi, ive been a member for a while but I never really posted or spent much time on here before, and I never properly introduced myself in the first place, but I'm trying to make a go of it this time so...

Hi to everyone who reads this.

Scanning some of the posts I can see that some people have really been helped by this website, I hope that I can one day say the same.

I'm a student and a sortof activist (I feel like I can't claim to really be one right now because I haven't been very involved in many events lately)

Other than that I love to dance, running is also great (but not for my knees-owww). I read a lot I guess and I try to knit as well. I study philosophy and women studies and I always like to discuss anything to do with those two subjects with anyone who's interested (Im re-reading a very cool collections of essays by Linda A Bell if anyone has an opinion about the ins and outs of feminist standpoint theory).

I am also frankly sick of feeling miserable 99% of the time so I've decided to try and deal seriously with my sh*t and part of that is actually using this profile I guess.

Thanks for reading!


Question, what is the general protocol about swearing on here? I tend to swear a lot (like every second word), esp. when I'm talking about something like SA but I hate doing it in front of people I can't really see/don't know bc I don't know if I'm offending anyone. I see some people use asterisks...?

Hello and welcome to AS, :flowers:

Well done on posting here, writing the first one is always the hardest.


I'm not quiet sure on the policy of swearing but I think it's ok if you warn people in your title about it. Most of the sear words seem to be automatically censored an asterix comes up in the- like sh*t for example.

If you've got anymore que's feel free to pm me, I may not know answers but I'll definitely help ya look for them.

Those are the board rules. To answer your question, swearing is not allowed in the title of a topic, but it is allowed in the body of a post. If you are going to swear in a topic/post, please add a trigger warning before it, as swearing is triggering for some members here.

:hug: :hug: :hug: Welcome to AS. I hope you are able to heal, and wish you the best!
