Why don’t you use your real name?

I want to be able to share my stories and research as honestly as possible, and in order to do that, I need to be anonymous not just for myself, but for others I speak of in my articles. This also allows me to completely honest in my bio, whereas outside of this website, many do not know that I am pansexual or about my anxiety disorder.

Why is the website all black?

I want readers to focus on the content, not be distracted by a bunch of graphics and bright colors outside of the articles. Also, for LED backlit LCDs (the majority of modern computer monitors), the parts that are black are not backlit, saving energy and taking a little pressure of off your eyes. I am passionate about sustainability, and even though the amount of energy saved is minimal, every little bit helps!
