About Jen

After acquiring a degree from Vassar College in psychology, I moved to Western Mass where I ran a peer mentoring network for disabled college students as well as activism and organizing around disability issues. I also conducted research on disabled women’s body image. An Upstate New York native, I eventually followed my heliotropic nature to the sun of Southern California. I divide my time between writing (disability fiction and essays) along with moderating San Diego Bisexual Forum which is one of the oldest groups of its kind in the country. In my off hours I can often be found in my neighborhood live music venue enjoying our local talent.

  1. Since you changed your profile pictures, I have been struggling with how to compliment you on your prosthetic eyes because I am afraid to be misinterpreted or to offend you.

    In my opinion, you do look better with them than you did previously. I acknowledge that “better” means “closer to societal views of normalcy” I hope that my wrestling with the words shows that I mean it as a genuine compliment.

  2. Steve,
    I appreciate the comment and your care in to put it nicely. Totally not offended.
    I’m still not used to having them and to the change I know they’ve engendered. It’s a very weird thing for me.
    On the other hand, a kid said I looked like an alien, so I know I’m not going to be mistaken for normal any time soon. *grin*

  3. Actually, here’s something I can say with absolutely no fear or qualifications.

    I like the color. They’re a nice blue-gray. They are the color of the sky on an dimly overcast day.
