Contributions

Articles below represent a significant substantive contribution. I've been doing a lot of copyediting, too, but the article topics are such a random collection that I'm more proud of the quantity there than any particular article.

A Note on Pronouns
zie This user prefers to be referred to using the gender-neutral pronouns zie and hir.

I am genderqueer and use the gender-neutral pronouns "zie" and "hir." If you need to refer to me in the third person, please use these pronouns. For example "Avory just edited an article, and I'm not sure what zie was thinking. Hir edits seem a little weird. Zie should ask hirself if zie's following Wikipedia standards." Questions? Ask at my talk page.
