I'm Cat deVice. I'm an American (Missouri by way of Kansas) who lives in Canada. I'm a PhD candidate in Classics (that's Latin and Greek), working on too many things. I'm interested in classical reception in modern SF and fantasy, but my dissertation work is on representations of the objectification of the human body in ancient literature, drawing on horror theory and HRI, a subset of robotics theory.

I love zombie movies, my pet snakes and cat, absurdity, and dyeing my hair ridiculous colours.

It's international book week. Grab the closest book to you, turn to page 52, post the 5th sentence as your status. Don't mention the title. Copy the rules as part of your status.

I'm not sure if I've posted about this, but the story about Emma Sullivan, the teen who is being targeted by Kansas Governor Sam Brownback and his staffers for the horrible crime of tweeting that he "blows", is making its way around Twitter and various other places right now.

Now, some of you might think that this is an example of the terrible fist of the internet descending on some poor old politician who is too clueless to be criticized like this, or that maybe the whole thing was exaggerated, or it was just a case of overzealous staffers acting without his knowledge, or whatever, but let me tell you about my experience with the office of then-Senator Sam Brownback.

Some years ago, when I was still living in Kansas, I took issue with a statement that Sen. Brownback made about his anti-choice, anti-abortion policies being what his constituency wanted, as I was in his constituency and myself pro-choice, and I wrote a letter to his office, saying as much, and adding that I'd appreciate it if he actually asked his constituency how they felt about various issues before telling the entire nation that we're all backward, misogynist jerks who want to restrict people's rights.

In response to my letter, I got from his office a form letter assuring me that he would continue doing whatever he could to outlaw abortion in the state of Kansas.

I can only imagine the glee of his office staff in sending me a form letter that basically was an enormous fuck you, and so I have no difficulty in believing that he and his staffers would be so petty and pathetic as to threaten the academic future of a young woman who happens to believe (rightly) that Sam #BrownbackBlows.

And you can quote me.

I copy what bankuei.tumblr.com says, verbatim and in its entirety:

Well, let’s see:

1) You force everyone to use real names that are identifiable.
2) You recruited heavily from the white male tech crowd as your root base before opening up to the public
3) Anyone can reshare your shit once they see it, whether you want them to or not
4) So public posts are often flooded by mansplaining Libertarian racists and they can publicly blast it to summon more of their ilk AND pull up your real world personal info.

I WONDER WHY NO ONE POSTS PUBLICLY IT IS A MYSTERY TO US ALL.

(Disclaimer: this one is actually public, so there may be mansplaining Libertarian racists.)

I have a new pair of tall wedges that make me like 6'1". It is the most awesome thing ever. They're very comfortable, super cute, and I love the way a really tall wedge gives me this leggy stalk, like an angry giraffe.

Y hello thar, summer shoe weather.
