Liss Says Stuff #1

Me, a fat white middle-aged woman with short dark hair and glasses, onscreen: So, two of the requests I get most frequently are for a video series of some description, and for a kind of frequently asked questions series, in which I provide definitions to general social justice terms, general feminist terms, um, Shakesville community terms that aren't in the Shaxicon or frequently asked questions section, terms that I've coined, like Validity Prism, anything that people don't have a really great working definition of, or a great understanding of, or a great definition for, anything that makes people who are new to Shakesville, or new to social justice, feel like they're coming into the middle of a conversation and need help getting caught up.

So I'm combining those two requests into this one series. And, when I have the time and inclination, I will make a new video that sort of talks about one of these ideas, uh, that people need help understanding or need better clarity on, whatever.

So, for this inaugural video, what I'm gonna ask you to do is let me know in comments what you'd like to hear me talk about: What do you need clarity on; what do you need better definitions for; what do you need a good example of...? Lemme know, and we will get this series rolling!
I know dumping this into the Friday news hole isn't the greatest launch idea ever, but I figured it might be useful for people who are interested in the potential for this series to have the weekend to think about it before it falls off the front page.

And, really, I'm happy to let this series be whatever you want it to be. If you want to ask questions about a dynamic you see repeating in lots of relationships in your life that doesn't seem to have a name, and want me to address/explore that, leave it in comments. If you have a question about blogging, leave it in comments. If you have a question about me or my experiences that you'd like to hear me talk about, leave it in comments. Of course I will reserve the right to not answer questions that I find too personal, but I'll entertain any topic. Have at it!
