Let’s Keep Talking

July 7th, 2020 This morning, I was scrolling and came across a local post by KARE 11 about supporting black businesses. The comment section was horrifying; it inspired me to write a very angry post (I hadn’t had my coffee yet) directed at the people who still insist that racism isn’t real. And then FacebookContinue reading “Let’s Keep Talking”

Defund Me

July 1st, 2020 Sometimes, people just need a really big problem broken down to its simplest form. So I’m going to try. For a long time, my way of living — my entire system — was broken. And I refused to address any of my problems in a fair way, to myself or others. ThisContinue reading “Defund Me”

People Not Problems

June 10th, 2020 Do you want to know why some folks love statistics so much? It’s because numbers are not people. Tell me which is easier for you: is it more agreeable to look up printed percentages that meet up with what you want to think and believe, or to watch even eight minutes ofContinue reading “People Not Problems”

Progress Not Perfection

June 3rd, 2020 Every single morning, especially since I’ve been sober, I wake up and I prepare myself to be called out. What will it be today? I don’t know. Yesterday, it was because I used the wrong hashtag; it was an honest mistake, and I fixed it immediately. Some of you may understand. SomeContinue reading “Progress Not Perfection”

Why Didn’t You Fix This?

June 1st, 2020 I got into a heated discussion with my dad yesterday about what’s happening right now (don’t worry, we’re fine!). While we were making scattered points, I blurted out something I’ve been thinking about a lot this week. “Why didn’t you fix this?” As I see people from generations older than mine criticizingContinue reading “Why Didn’t You Fix This?”

George Floyd

May 27th, 2020 I don’t know what to say. I always have a lot of things to say but it’s usually about things that don’t matter. Black lives matter. My lack of an immediate response isn’t because I’m not feeling anything; I’m feeling too much. I’m sad, and I’m disgusted, and I’m fucking angry. ForContinue reading “George Floyd”

Our Racist President

July 19th, 2019 I just read that if you’re not calling out the president on his abhorrent, racist behavior right now, then you are complicit. I agree. So I am absolutely calling him out, right now, and the supporters he still has left. When they questioned him about the chants of “send her back” atContinue reading “Our Racist President”

Ask Me About My Feminist Agenda

April 7th, 2019 I’m a feminist. For a long time, I couldn’t figure out why I related to girls and women so much; or why I felt like I failed as a man so often. But I’ve been doing some deep digging and soul excavating lately, and it’s all become very clear to me: IContinue reading “Ask Me About My Feminist Agenda”
