Enough

I’d like to take a moment to address Senator Chris McDaniel and his recent FaceBook post. After much thought, I’ve decided to do it with the same condescension that Senator McDaniel employed since I feel it must be the tone and attitude he understands best. Well done, Senator McDaniel. You must be so proud of...

Our New Normal

Everyday when we wake up in Trump’s America, there’s something new and horrifying to behold. It’s overwhelming. I’m sure it’s meant to be. Scientists are on lock-down. The EPA isn’t allowed to speak. The Wall is beginning. The Affordable Care Act is being repealed without an alternative. Medicare and Medicaid are under attack. A group...

My Apology

This blog is just for me. It’s not about anybody else. These are my feelings about myself and I need to own them. I need to apologize. I need to apologize to all my human brothers and sisters for letting you down. I just turned 41. I wasn’t blind. I wasn’t unaware. I didn’t think...

Eulogy

The United States of America is officially dying. As 2016 comes to a close, our country struggles to take its lasts breaths. We say goodbye to a beloved President and First Family, the first African-American First Family and are forced to shake hands with the person who questioned our leader’s birth certificate for 8 years....

As a woman, I have been grabbed in the pussy by an astonishing number of men and as every woman out there knows, it happens way too early to most of us. The first time I was literally (and I am using the word literally, literally) grabbed in the pussy by a “man” was when...

I don’t give a fuck…if people who spent the last 8 YEARS talking about Obama’s birth certificate are saying I’m acting like a child...

Bernt Out

I need to talk about something that recently came to my attention. It’s the text of an essay written in 1972 by Bernie Sanders in the Vermont Freeman, an alternative newspaper.  I think it is beyond important to note the following things when reading the entirety of this essay: — This essay was published in...

Tough Love Week — Native Americans

I’m feeling really sick today but I wanted to try something that I call Tough Love week, where each day I broach a topic that affects me personally that I may have been avoiding a little bit, as to not piss off people close to me (or in my vicinity). Or at least that’s the...

An Open Letter to America from an American

Dear The American People, It’s with much sadness that I write you this letter but I see no way around it. I agree that we’ve got an incredibly diverse country made up of multiple ethnicities, genders, creeds, sexual persuasions and onward but we seem to be having some troubles creating a home for such vastly...
