In every Sociology
class I've taken (and I've taken a lot) it was always stressed that, your
background, and your upbringing, play massive parts into how you view the world
as an adult.
Being an African American Female, my eyes are super tinted from a gummy past, soaked in confusion. From the jump no geek ever feels they belong anywhere. Add being a girl to that and things get weird. Add being black as the cherry on top, and you've got a vomit sundae filled with chunks of questions and crying. Fun, oh so much fun.
As well as most people know I’m a HUGE Doctor Who fan. My devotion to the show is forever inked onto my back as proof.
The deeper I dive into the fandom pool, the darker the water gets. I feel it’s time address these issues, along with some of the issues that were touched on while I was on panels at Chicago TARDIS.
Hopefully I can start some healthy discussion, similar to what was had at the convention.
