Hello there! I'm Fluttershy, and though my username might suggest otherwise, I prefer male pronouns. On LessWrong, I've never tried to role-play as the character of Fluttershy from the show My Little Pony, so if I say something that seems like something that the character Fluttershy might say, that's only because our personalities are similar. Topics which I especially enjoy talking with others about include:

  • The study of how one's healthspan, life expectancy, and lifespan can be increased.
  • Effective Altruism.

I also really love My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The idea that valuing others and tolerating everypony should be the norm, rather than the exception seems like a beautiful idea to me.

Since I am human, and therefore prone to having feelings, I do not operate under Crocker's Rules. However, I do greatly appreciate it when others give me advice in a kind manner.
