⚡ Safe Spaces & Trigger Warnings ⚡

  In my experience, the people who are most vocal in their objections to Safe Spaces and Trigger Warnings are the exact same people who are fortunate enough to not need Safe Spaces or Trigger Warnings.   The way I understand it, Safe Spaces are a thing I can’t imagine anyone objecting[…]

Now That I’ve Seen Batman’s Penis, I’ll Never Be The Same

Don’t Get Pissed, But Your “Fearless Girl” Is Bullshit

GOOD NEWS! I’m finally going to get ALL THE EMOJIS this weekend!

the best GOOD NEWS of the year, roundup

Awwwww you guuuyyys it’s my last weekly Good News roundup of 2016! You know, in years past, I would have felt a twinge of nostalgia saying “Last X of 20XX,” but I really don’t feel anything. TIME IS A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT, like virginity and breakfast. And besides, I doubt anyone’s going[…]

GOOD NEWS: You Don’t Have To “Be Positive”

Well, hello again, friends. Every Friday, I try to highlight some of the things that have made me happy during the week. As I struggle in the fight against depression and anxiety, I found it helpful to focus even a small amount of my energies towards finding the positive in[…]

Gender is DEAD! That’s the Good News this week!

Last Friday, I listed 7 things that made me exceedingly happy, and I enjoyed sharing so much, that I decided to make “a thing” of it. So welcome to the Second Weekly Edition of my Good News posts. YAY! Good news, for once! So as I was compiling the things[…]
