Hello Spacefem users :)

My name is Alison; Im 23 years old, and I'm a recent college graduate.
I'm not just new to this site, I'm actually new to this entire movement in general.

Just over the past couple months or so, I've been looking into feminist videos on YouTube, and various related articles about it. I've also seen a lot of "pro and anti" feminist content, and I have a lot of questions in general, that I hope might be answered from here.
Although I am female, I don't really consider myself a feminist, because I don't know enough about it yet to subscribe to this ideology/movement.

But, that's why I'm here! :) I joined here because I wanted to learn more about this, by talking to people who are more knowledgable about it, and (hopefully) I can make some friends on here in the process <3


~~~~~~~~~Basic Introduction Questions:
From the post guidelines for introducing ones' self

1) Your username, nicknames, how to pronounce it: It's just "Alison" :)
2) Occupation/Potential Occupation: Currently unemployed.
3)Educational Status: Bachelors degree in history, and political Science
4) Notable Hobbies: drawing, painting, reading, computer programming
5) Favorite Website/Blog: Wikipedia.org
6) Favorite color: Green
7) Favorite animal: Tropical Birds (Macaws and parrots)
8) Favorite food: Sushi/ almost any type of fish
9) If you are wearing pants, please describe them: Lol um, what?
10) What brought you to spacefem/how'd you find us?
I typed in "feminist forum" on google web search.
11) Did you find the FAQ link?
Um, yeah I think so :p


I look forward to reading the forums, and meeting new people :)

~~~ Alison <3

Oh, I wasn't quite sure what it was asking; I thought the pants question was for guys. :p
I usually wear short shorts, or skirts :) not a big fan of pants, unless it's veryyy cold out.

Thanks for welcoming me :)
As for my degree, I may want to work for the government, like with foreign relations, or maybe do something with the UN.
That would be cool :)

Are you saying guys can't wear skirts? I'm quite offended! /sarcasm

On a more serious note, have you been able to find opportunities to get you that experience and network for those careers (I would think you'd need lot!)?

Welcome to the spacefem forums!

I'm currently wearing pajama leggings, so no pants either :P
Ugh, I'm tired of my signature.
