Lookit! Unnatural Forces got a makeover!
Basically, I am extremely neurotic about appearance stuff. Not my own or other people's, but I went to art school/classes from the time I was 5 until I was 18, and I have very specific aesthetic thoughts on things. And while I started Unnatural Forces on a whim and didn't really care what it looked like at the time, this has become a place of deep personal sharing. And also, a place of pictures of my cat with a tampon and insane online dating emails.
But whatever! Point is, I wanted it to be more MINE, instead of just the standard blog template.
So you will have noticed the big fuck-off picture above? I couldn't get it any smaller. Or I could have, but that looked bad. I fucked with it a bit, let me tell you. Anyway, I drew that big fuck-off picture, and I wanted something of mine on the blog to personalize it more. Also, my profile picture is now a photo of a sketch I was working on a few years back, but which has since been finished and now adorns my bedroom.
So, there you go. If you think the picture is annoying or distracting or in anyway detracts from the Serious Work We Do Here, of posting about personal rape survivor adventures and taking issue with stupid pundits and occasionally blogging about national security law, please do let me know, and I will work on fixing it.
But I did promise to be very honest in this space, and now, it is, like 50% more me. What with that big fuck-off picture up there and all.
If you are wondering why I changed the blog title, it is because, mostly, it is easier to read in red across the picture. Also, an ex of mine used to refer to me as a "force of nature." He meant it in a bad way, as in I am too much to deal with; I am deciding it is the loveliest of compliments.
