Maya Posch's answer: I do not have regrets about those who I have dated. The one person I dated, that is. She was a really cool person to hang out with despite being British :) That experience does however serve to remind me of why I haven't dated anyone else yet. Trying to get medical help. Try...

On this date January 1st in the year 1863 The Emancipation Proclamation was an executive order issued by President Abraham Lincoln as a war measure during the American Civil War, to all segments of the Executive branch (including the Army and Navy) of the United States. It proclaimed the freedom of slaves in the ten states that were still in rebellion,thus applying to 3.1 million of the 4 million slaves in the U.S. at the time. The Proclamation was based on the president's constitutional authority as commander in chief of the armed forces; it was not a law passed by Congress. The Proclamation also ordered that "suitable" persons among those freed could be enrolled into the paid service of United States' forces, and ordered the Union Army (and all segments of the Executive branch) to "recognize and maintain the freedom of" the ex-slaves. The Proclamation did not compensate the owners, did not itself outlaw slavery, and did not make the ex-slaves (called freedmen) citizens. It made the eradication of slavery an explicit war goal, in addition to the goal of reuniting the Union.

Around 20,000 to 50,000 slaves in regions where rebellion had already been subdued were immediately emancipated. It could not be enforced in areas still under rebellion, but as the Union army took control of Confederate regions, the Proclamation provided the legal framework for freeing more than 3 million more slaves in those regions. Prior to the Proclamation, in accordance with the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, escaped slaves were either returned to their masters or held in camps as contraband for later return. The Proclamation only applied to slaves in Confederate held lands; it did not apply to those in the five slave states that were not in rebellion, nor to most regions already controlled by the Union army.

Yup yup, political expediency was the goal, not freedom from slavery for all slaves. My understanding is that slavery was a touchstone issue during the drafting of the Declaration of Independence and later the Constitution. Lincoln was just following in a lot of footsteps of others that found slavery to be more of a economic issue than one of human rights.

Story
Tagline
Just a crazy geek girl~
Introduction
I'm a software/hardware engineer, full-time geek, science junkie, and generally grew up with computers, technology and Star Trek. I love creating the most fantastic software and games. I have a photographic memory and tend to bore people with trivia at any chance :)

I'm also a hermaphrodite, basically a twin in a single body. This has really determined my life, due to being born in the conservative Netherlands where I have had to fight off countless attempts to brainwash me into accepting major normalization surgery to make me 'normal'. See Wikipedia for 'intersex', which is the major category of which hermaphroditism is part.

I'm looking for the fun & sunny side of life, even after suffering PTSD and various other traumatic disorders as a result of the persecution and discrimination I suffered in the Netherlands for just being who and what I am.

In 2013 I fled to Germany where I currently live and work. I also hope to finally get the medical attention I need here.
Bragging rights
Survived over 10 years so far of persecution and discrimination for being intersex.
