I’m married to Bobby Scarnewman, Twitch Product Manager and Super Smash Bros. Melee commentator. We’re both ardent feminists and humanists who believe strongly in full equality for all. We believe that Black Lives Matter, that immigrants deserve rights and a path to citizenship, that refugees should be able to find a home in the United States, that climate change is real, and that LGBTQ rights are human rights.
We welcomed our son Donato in October 2016, and we are in a constant state of simultaneous rapture and exhaustion. An informal survey of his parents revealed him as the greatest baby of all time. If his canine older sister Zoë could speak English, we’re sure she’d agree too.
If you’re wondering about our unusual last name, you certainly wouldn’t be the first. “Scarnewman” combines our pre-marriage names of Newman and Scarduzio into one (admittedly odd but ultimately lovable) moniker. On the subject of marriage, we did our best to make our 2014 wedding ceremony reflect our values of gender equality. I invite you to take a look at the whole shebang over at Medium.
