There isn't much to say about me, but I'm a young lass living in Hampshire who's interested in walking, climbing, photography, computers, and all the usual gumpf.

This site contains lots of random stuff for/about/belonging to me that you may find of interest or use.

Gender self determination and the UK government

There is currently a petition going around to ask our government to allow people to self identify rather than have many interviews, checkups, poking, prodding, and forking out money for the government to change a flag in a database.
They have responded with essentially "That's the way it is".


Occasionally, I get asked why I attend Pride parades.
Pride was born out of the fight for equality, both equal rights and equal treatment. Even in just the LGBT sense, neither are universal yet.

Comms Data Bill and privacy

Today, the Lords discuss adding an "amendment" to an already huge bill.
This amendment? It consists of guts of a previous bill that has been read, reviewed and declined by a group of MPs and Lords as unsuitable and inappropriate, raising many concerns, none of which have yet been addressed.

Transgender and Scouting

I've been an Explorer Scout leader in Itchen North, Hampshire since around 2006, after coming all the way up from Beavers.
Around about 13, I became consciously aware of some gender confusion in my life, feeling like I should have been female. Needless to say, I kept this to myself as I had no idea why, or if anyone else had similar thoughts. Looking back, there are lots of feelings and things that have happened that now make sense.

Spam mailing lists

I received an email today offering to sell me a spam mailing list.
