Thanks for visiting Greta Christina’s Blog at the new Freethought Blogs site. I am pleased as punch — how pleased is punch, anyway? — to be part of this new network, and am beyond proud to have been invited to join it.
Once I get settled in, I’ll be introducing new readers to myself a bit more, showing you around the best bits of my archives, etc. In the meantime, here’s a bit about me for those who don’t know me:
I’m an atheist. Like, duh.
I’m a feminist sex writer who’s been writing professionally since 1989. My first paid writing gig was for On Our Backs, the (now sadly defunct) by- lesbians- for- lesbians sex magazine. I write a lot about atheism — like, duh — skepticism, sex (mostly non-fiction, occasional fiction a.k.a. porn), feminism, books, LGBT issues, and cultural commentary (a fancy way of saying “what movies and TV I’m watching”.) I write occasionally but less regularly about food, art, music, smug unsolicited advice about life, cats, weight management, weird dreams I had the night before, and whatever happens to pop into my head.
I’m on the speakers’ bureaus of the Secular Student Alliance and the Center for Inquiry.
I’m editor of the Best Erotic Comics 2008 and Best Erotic Comics 2009 anthologies (yes, a third volume is on its way, long story, don’t ask), and of Paying For It: A Guide by Sex Workers for Their Clients (out of print, but available on Kindle). And I’m the author of Bending, an erotic novella published in the three-novella collection Three Kinds of Asking For It (edited by Susie Bright).
I’m on Twitter, as of about two days ago. @GretaChristina
And in just a moment, I’ll be ranting about accommodationism and diplomacy. Get used to it. Welcome to my new blog!
