The thoughts that go through my autistic brain are often too long for Twitter and often far too scattered for proper blog posts. This is my middle-way.
My name's Jemima. Call me Jem.
I have Asperger's and depression and have lived with the former since I was born in 1984 and with the latter since some unspecified time in my pre-teens - probably.
I read pretty much anything from the Elder Edda to the biography of Niels Bohr (Danish philosopher and physicist). Heck, I'll read a dictionary if the cover feels nice in my hands. Yes, I am autistic.
I'm an atheist.
I have a two cats named Kaktus (the Danish spelling of - you guessed it - cactus) and Chili. they're what keeps me sane, when my brain does not co-operate.
I study Law, because I believe that's a good area where someone with my disabilities can still do good work for a cause I believe in. I may end up in politics, but that will be many years from now in any case. I wouldn't be able to handle the attention as things are now.
I am undecided about my gender. I don't feel like a woman, but I don't feel like anything else either. I don't mind presenting female, and I don't mind if people think of me as a woman. They're welcome to that. I just have an odd tendency to think of women as "them" and not include myself in that.
My sexuality is my own and directed solely at my partner.
