An overdue #introduction toot: I'm a thoroughly pedestrian white cisdude whose opinions can safely be disregarded. I <3 computers but hate software, lose at all kinds of games and probably just had some coffee, regardless of time or day.

As a plural trans hacktivist, I:
-illegally optimize my mind and body with chemicals
-access and modify data without proper authorization
-maintain multiple Ghosts with different specialties
-speak up and struggle against oppressive authorities
-pepper my daily speech with terms from sci-fi media
-do all of this with no regard to mainstream opinions
In other words, I *am* cyberpunk, and all the cishet white dudebros can eat their hearts out - the future is *now*, and we're *it*, old men!
