I am a now 20 year old College student. According to PoliticalCompass.org I am an Anarcho-Collectivist which is something I strongly agree with. However I have a strong fascination with electoral politics. I guess I hope that one day they will actually work for the people, instead of the multi-national corporations. And that is a significant part of my crusade. I am against the big corporations that run the media, that own our politicians and that are behind the Military-Industrial complex that keeps us in perpetual war.

I also advocate for an education that makes people independent of the system we currently live in. By teaching them how to grow their own food and by teaching them things like carpentry, sewing and cooking.

Also, as a Lesbian Transgender, I am a strong advocate of ACTUAL LGBT* Rights. The right to marry is important, of course, but so are fair treatment and equal rights of the Trans* community in prisons, when it comes to buying homes and seeking employment and when it comes to adoption (which is something that the entire community is facing discrimination on).

Lastly, I understand and accept my privilege as a middle - class Caucasian and I work everyday to use that privilege to better this world for everyone and not just myself.
