My name is Sebastian Hudak, and I'm a young hobbyist software developer and privacy/freedom advocate. The Wikimedia Foundation's mission to ensure that all knowledge is free (as in free speech and as in free beer) is very important to me, and as such I'll attempt to contribute as much as possible to any Wikipedias possible.

All stuff that I work on personally should be on my website. I host a (very inactive) blog there as well.

I love chatting with others, regardless of the topic. If you want to chat for whatever reason, talk to me on my talk page! I'd love to chat!

## Potential Biases

When editing, I try to be as unbiased and neutral as possible. However, like everyone else, I am vulnerable to bias. As such, I will put information about myself and my beliefs here so other users can call me out in the event that I show some implicit bias. The intent of this isn't to begin an argument, though I do enjoy civil debate. Please do not harass me.

• I am Caucasian/white, but a strong supporter of racial equality. The only reason racism exists is because human brains haven't evolved much from those of hunter-gatherers from the Paleolithic era.
• I was born as and identify as male, but I am a strong supporter of gender equality, transsexual rights, and non-binary acceptance.
• I was born and currently live in the United States, although to be honest I've grown a distaste for my country. I'm a patriot in the sense that I want my nation to be the best it can be, and I dislike my nation in its current state because things are fundamentally wrong. Of course, I want every nation to be the best it can be, but I primarily focus on local and national politics as it's what effects me the most.
• I am an atheist. Religion doesn't dictate my morals. Although religion can be and is used to justify horrible things, I don't believe religion is evil. Most religions are built on the ideas of peace. If people use religion to guide them and develop good morals, power to them. I do however believe that religion is an old way of attempting to explain many unexplainable questions about humanity, our world, and our universe. A lot of that stuff is now outdated.
• On the political compass, I identify as being slightly above the middle of the lib-left quadrant, though tests online suggest that I'm either right in the middle or further left/down. Abstract political scales such as the political compass do a poor job of representing political beliefs, because politics is too complicated for such a visualization/metaphor to work. Instead, when discussing politics, it makes more sense to pinpoint your stance on particular issues (though I won't do that here, because that would be too long). On the traditional U.S. one dimensional scale, I'm generally left-wing (progressive) on most issues.
• I am heterosexual, but a strong supporter of LGBT rights and acceptance.
• I am extremely tech-savvy, and most of my work/hobbies involve computers, technology, and coding. I almost exclusively use free software, and I'm a big advocate for digital privacy, which most people seem okay with giving up. (Donate to EFF by the way!)
• I am a minor. Currently, I am 17 years old and a junior (11th grader) in high school.
• I am a vegetarian, though I eventually want to become vegan. The cruelty to animals that is normalized in our society disgusts me.
