About

I am passionate about social justice, so I will probably write about that a lot at Rambling Justice.  Hence, the “justice” part of this blog’s name.  But I will also write about other random topics as they strike my fancy.  Some posts might be personal but other posts might be more cerebral and analytical, and some posts might be a mix of both.  I am particularly passionate about disability rights, particularly in developing countries but also at home in the United States and in the rest of the world.  I also am passionate about GLBTIQA rights and women’s rights.  I am striving to learn to be a stronger ally on issues related to racial equality, indigenous rights, class justice, and anyone else experiencing marginalization or exclusion.  I also try to pay attention to issues impacting people who live within the intersections of multiple layers of marginalization.  Any and all of the above could be topics of discussion at this blog at one time or another.

Yes, I ramble a lot.  And there are times when I try to keep this under control.  Yes, I’m aware that when I ramble too much, I lose readers because not everyone has the time, energy, spoons, whatever, to wade their way through a sea of meandering words.  But it is also my innate writing style.  My brain is hard wired this way.  (Welcome to life with strong verbal skills combined with attention deficit disorder and its associated weak executive functioning.)  If I spend too much time and energy keeping my rambling tendencies too tightly under control each and every time I try to post something then there will be many posts that simply never get written at all.  Sure, I’ll try not to go overboard too much at this blog (and elsewhere!).  But the reality is, at least some of the time–really, probably most of the time–I’m going to ramble here.  Hence, the “Rambling” part of this blog’s name.

I will post sporadically, as and when the muse strikes me and I have time to write.  If you want to ensure you don’t miss any of my posts, I would encourage you to subscribe to its RSS feed or sign up for email alerts.

Feedback and comments are welcome.  I’m not very tech savvy, but if there’s something I can do to make this blog more accessible to you as a reader with disabilities, please let me know.
