Stop Fucking Blaming Women for Being Assaulted, Mother Fuckers

Can Does Not Equal Should – Why Not All Art Should Be Produced

Well, in the let’s fuck with an already fucked up climate news that has an iceberg the size of Delaware ready to break off from Antarctica, unprecedented global warming that will flood our coasts and dry up our farms, and…

This Is Nothing New – Tribalism Has Been Here All Along

As the current U.S. presidential administration continues to create a circus out of the judicial process and quietly (and not so quietly) strip away personal liberties and the transparency of the press, I have alternated between indignant, angry, sad, overwhelmed,…

How to Be An Ally And Use Google – AKA, A Tale of How Not To Be an Asshole

There is a trend of entitlement on Twitter (and lots of other places, but let’s focus there) that revolves around this one simple phrase: “Explain to me why this is.” Now, this might not be an insidious thing on the…

Forgiveness Is A Choice We Define

I’d like you all to get on the galloping trope-horse with me for a second to talk about something that I think is the definition of poor writing. It’s not only poor writing, but it reinforces unhealthy behavior and outdated…
