Greetings my illustrious companions.

I am Witness. I am 32 years old and live in the LA area of California. I have played this game on and off throughout the years and re-rolled to enjoy the plethora of shenanigans that ensue within the Planet Bob. 

I am a retail worker by necessity. One does have bills to pay in this day and age. But my passion is creating. Whether it be through writing or creating instrumental music, creativity is what helps keep my sanity intact.  I am currently working on a series of novels and also have a Soundcloud where I post my music. I also enjoy playing Magic: the Gathering, Elder Scrolls games, and my current mobile game of choice is King of Avalon.

There is something you should know before you all start ogling over my avatar, which is indeed me. I will placate to your comfort zones. I am Trans. No, I'm not going to hound you over pronouns or even scold over rights and protections I think folk like myself deserve. I am a realist. Do I believe I and people like myself deserve equal treatment like everyone else? Yes of course I do, but not at the expense of others free thought or speech. Call or refer to me what or how you will and feel free to express your opinions, civilly. While it may sting at moments, I am a big gal and in the end I am too preoccupied to allow myself to be distracted by trivial verbal jousting. All I ask is no dirty private messages. Believe it or not, it tends to be a problem anywhere I go on the internet.

Speaking of verbal jousting, (well in this case written jousting), I can be quite the raconteur. I have a tendency to be a contrarian in certain subjects, if only to allow the balance of thought to process through a discussion. I like to stimulate ideas, discussion and thrive in making room for compromise. Politically I am not sure what I am. In terms of US politics I do lean very far left on many issues. However there are a few issues in which my stance is in favor of right wing policies. What I can be sure of, is that today's day and age is far too filled with open mouths and closed ears. Many wish to be heard in a world where very few are listening, which is a crying shame. It is my goal in these instances to engage in quality debate, not to simply disprove the arguments of those I disagree with but to better understand them in order to find common ground.

If you have any questions or comments, post them below!

Hey Witness, welcome to our community, I hope you'll like it here. I'm happy to get a fresh perspective to freshen up our political discussions, which have grown kind of stale as of late, since we all know each others' positions anyway.

Very cool. Welcome to IRON Witness. I was born in Anaheim back in... well I voted for Ronald Reagan twice, so you can do the math. I went to military schools. In my early days I was a graphic artist, a musician, and a sound engineer. Moved out of California to Las Vegas before the turn of the century because it was going way too left for my comfort. I have 4 children, all older than you. One is a right leaning Libertarian, one is a Bernie Bot, one is a Neo-Con, and one doesn't care. They all have separate lives now, and never all in the same place at the same time. My eldest just moved back to Las Vegas from Denver... because Colorado is going way to left for her.

 

We're all in lockdown right now. I can handle it best because I like staying home, but my wife is not used to this. The only time she is not working is when we travel... and we're not going anywhere, anytime soon. Hope things are okay for you there. Stay healthy.


Legal gun owners in the USA own over 300 million guns and over a trillion rounds of ammunition.

If we were the problem, you would know it.

Welcome to IRON.

 

Hope you are doing well, given the current situation.  Speaking as a member of the LGBT+ community, we are very welcoming here.  The out pouring of support I received when I announced my marriage was overwhelming.

Yes, we're still working on the danged pictures!

 

Hope you enjoy your time here.
