Christ likes to watch anime and science fiction or fantasy shows in those brief moments of spare time. Some of Christ's favourites include Serial Experiments: Lain, Andromeda, Last Exile, and Hercules: The Legendary Journies. That's just a sampling though, if you want to ask, you can get a recommendation pretty much any time for a new show to watch, and Christ is always taking recommendations if there's something you want someone new to discuss a favourite show with.
The same holds true for Christ and reading. Christ will read pretty much anything middle or high fantasy so long as one or two people recommend it. Christ's favourite works of fiction include the Myst trilogy, The Deathgate Cycle, the Wheel of Time trilogy, and The Dresden Files. Christ is into more than just Fiction, however. Christ loves to routinely read books on programming in those oh so special languages: PHP, C++, Java, and the new favourite, Python.
Christ is not big on activism in general, but has a few special causes which are of utmost import. Christ is a big supporter of both Body Positivity and Gender Identity, especially trans rights. Being fairly androgynous, Christ can pass as either a female or male, and often chooses to swap which it is. For this reason, among others, Christ has adopted a strong preference against the use of Pronouns and Gender Pronouns in specific. Just refer to Christ by name, and expect the same courtesy in return. Life as a woman has taught Christ much about discrimination, the need for feminism, and why it takes us so long both in the bathroom and to get ready to go. Life's a real challenge. Conversely, life as a man has taught Christ how to take every challenge in stride by facing every obstacle as a new enemy to overcome, and how to get shit done when being nice doesn't work. Switching between has taught Christ how important it is that each of us protect any less capable of protecting themselves than us, be they women, men, children, animals or anything else. The switching has also broadened Christ's horizons in other more subtle manners.
Body positivity is also important to Christ as many men and women feel ashamed of their bodies, and worse, are taught that they should feel ashamed of their bodies. Be it because of their gender, appearance, weight, genitals, skin colour, race, or even because they just don't conform to the archetypes jokingly portrayed by the media as men and women doesn't make any person any less beautiful, amazing, worthy, or deserving of a bikini. We're all equal when we come into this world, we're all equal when we leave it. We need to learn to treat each other as equals while we're here and learn to admire and appreciate what every other person has to share with the world rather than to judge those things.
