HER VARIOUS GRAVATARS ONCE SHE STOLE THE SITE.
It all started with a forum named Common Ground Politics and a 2008 run by the first viable female candidate to run for President in United Sates history. There was a back room where we strategized that the rest of the forum couldn’t see. It was by invite only.
I jumped in with both feet. I ran around to Texas, North Carolina, Washington DC to protest Florida’s lack of primary votes and eventually to Denver to storm the streets in protest. Hillary had long thrown in the towel; I had not. I was still in law school, young, and idealistic.
The forum split as some got in line with the Dems and Obama and others did not. I didn’t. I couldn’t. The pain was too fresh–I was beat up from the meanness and unrelenting sexism and caucus cheating I witnessed with my own eyes in TX.
Over the summer I got to know a woman named Lady Lazuras. It actually turned out to be Professor Lynn Langmade ( @llangmade ) though she was weird about her identity. We ran a business together and she STILL kept her name from me. I allowed her, too. Mistake #1. Looking back, there’s a million things I’d do differently and that is one of them.
