About the Authors
Nelrond is a "regular Joe" sort of guy who is happy to work, eat and have a roof over his head. Strong in his convictions and not afraid to speak his mind, he openly gives his opinions on gender disparity throughout North America and the western world.
He has been aware of gender differences since he was about five years old, not really too bothered by them, seeing a "that's a girl, I'm a boy" kind of mentality. It was not until high school that he finally got a taste of real misandry when he was told that all men should be killed, as the world would be better off.
He has since been falsely accused of rape, threatened with vigilante justice, been victim to attempted parental fraud and even racial and gender discrimination. All that in less than 7 years of his hateful encounter with misandry. It really is a man's world, isn't it?
He is still waiting for his application into the Patriarchy to go through so he can get his t-shirt and free toaster oven.
Valerie has been very conscious of the lack of gender equality since she was at least around ten, when her cousin got a whole pizza to himself and she had to share with the other girls. Her grandmother's reasoning on this was that he needed a whole pizza because "He's a growing boy." This made her realize that girls are often discriminated against.
Another cousin of hers, also a boy, has always been on the girlier side. His sister has always been a tomboy. Growing up with these two and seeing the girl be praised for her boyishness and the boy be scorned for his girliness (by their parents, no less) has really struck a chord with her. This made her realize that boys are also discriminated against.
She identifies as a feminist under its dictionary definition, in that she would like for everyone to be as feminine or as masculine as they like without any repercussions. It almost goes without saying that she's also focused on the bigger, legal issues involved.
