We have a new blogger in the Freethought Blogs network — Yemisi Ilesanmi, blogging at YEMMYnisting! The tagline of her blog is “Proudly Feminist, Proudly Bisexual and Proudly Atheist.” — you can see why we brought her on, right? Here’s what she says about herself in her bio:

She is a trade unionist, human rights activist, an author, a poet and sometimes moonlights as a plus size model.

I’m totally thinking about that Tom Lehrer line: “It’s people like that who make you realize how little you’ve accomplished.” Her introductory post makes her awesomeness even more apparent. Please welcome her to the network!
