Introducing Gail | new contributor to Northern Plunder
Hey guys before I hand over this post to Gail, and the blog every now and then, I thought it’d be great to give some background information.
Having other people guest post or contribute to this blog is something I’ve been looking into for a while, and after launching Blogs and Tea I got talking with Gail. They currently use Tumblr to blog, and so I proposed the idea of guest posting here to an existing audience for them to try out WordPress as a platform should they decide to make the move over here. So I expect a nice warm welcome to them!
I’m really excited for you to see what Gail has been writing for you as I think they provides a great contrast as they enjoy writing discussion pieces and read different genres than I do. We also have a shared interest in diversity, sci-fi, and fantasy.
Their posts will go live on Thursdays, blue instead of purple will be used for any background colours, and their information will be at the bottom of their posts.
Hey y’all! It’s so nice to meet you. I’m really excited about being here! I’ve been debating getting a more straightforward blog for about two years, and so I really hope that this will work out!
You’re probably pronouncing my name wrong. For the record: it’s pronounced like Kyle, with a hard G.
Important things to know about me, let’s see… I’m Jewish, neurodivergent, and queer probably covers most of it. I’ve wanted to be an author since I was seven and am a staunch advocate of the Oxford comma. I’m currently studying Film & TV at university, hopefully with a focus on screenwriting. And I read. A lot. Like, a lot. So I hope you’ll enjoy my thoughts, because I have a lot of them.
My favorite book series of all time is Harry Potter, and I know that’s cliché, but I’m not the type of person to change my answer just because it’s cliché. I love fantasy, sci-fi, queer rep, Jewish rep, and any book that makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. I also try to read outside my comfort zone sometimes, as you’ll probably see soon. I hope you’ll enjoy my content.
These are some posts from my tumblr you might be interested in. Some of them are in essay form, some of them are answers to asks, some of them are very short. Most of them deal with antisemitism in a way that probably won’t come up here, but might come up if I ever start my own WordPress. So… here we go.
– The Holocaust Movie and the Goy
– How to Read
– “we should punch Nazis”
– masterpost for the cultural Christianity controversy
– the spelling of antisemitism (it’s a pet peeve)
– book recs for pride month (look at the notes/replies for additional recs)
– bias in psychology
– a reminder
– the term judeo-christian is antisemitic
– “reclaiming” the swastika??
– should we support racist Jews
– summary of antisemitism
– Buffy Summers’ Depression
– Jews keep talking about the Holocaust!
– is watching wonder woman implicit support of fascism? (no, it isn’t)
