do you have any questions for me?

the next doris is going to be partially about questions. so if you have any questions for me, leave them here in the comments. so far the questions I have are - what do you want to do most. who do you want to be most.

Just found your website...much joy.
been reading doris for years (buying it from db&n, a'ville). I, too, have been to counseling at Our Voice and still go to see Shannon O'Neill as needed. She's been an amazing Goddess force in my life and I'm pleased you're referring people to both of these great resources.
Have you read The Ethical Slut, or The Magdalen Manuscripts? I've done so much healing of the sexual abuse I experienced, that I find these books to be great wisdom for creating a healthy relationship with sex/sexuality in my life now...reclaiming what sex is meant to be, and not what I perceived it to be due to being abused.
so my last question is when are you coming back to asheville? i'd really love to meet you, and i don't mean that in a groupie kind of way. blessings to you, bo

question #1:
your thoughts on getting older in the punk scene are...?

question #2:
will you please make a list of your awesome fantasy lifestyles that you would live in a parallel universe, such as running a dog retirement home, or becoming a monk?

question #3:
how can you make yourself feel totally safe while living out in the woods? or anywhere, for that matter.

Maybe I'm too late, but....

How did you become the way that you are?

i feel like a lot of wisdom can be gleaned from older women and trans folks or queer folks in "radical" communities about healthy or healthier intimate relationships, how radical models of relationships have played out, what you've learned... but there is this pervading toughness guise (that you write of from your experience too) that makes it hard as a non-dude to have these conversations sometimes. i know i see sixteen year old girls and want desperately to tell them what i've learned in my five extra years, like what i can now identify as harmful and disempowering.
so i'd like to ask through this anonymity... what have you learned from your many years in this community about healthy relationships/lovers etc? are there any conversations or books that have helped you overcome abuse and our fucked up socializations to move toward healthy, empowering, loving relationships?

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that a few days I recieved Doris 21 in the mail. It was intense and enlightening and it's going to make a great addition to my zine library. I run an underground/traveling zine library on my campus and a club I go to (feminist majority leadership alliance) really enjoys the section of gender and body zines that doris 21 will be going into.

what do you think it is to be shy in a scene that asks for punk girls to be strong and bold when some of us are just quiet and self-contained?
