A Round Up of Thoughts on Gender: Nope, Still Just a Tiny Girl and That’s OK

I’ve been spending the last year and half now reliving all of my trauma while I try to sort things out. There’s A LOT of rape, you guys. I lost count a long time ago, and in my triggered state, it made it difficult for me to leave the house. I mentioned this to some

Stop Binary Thinking

  We have a strange difficulty imagining beyond two options. Binary. It makes it so much easier, you guys. It is such an efficient image of the world but the binary poses other problems that outweigh it’s efficiency.

Stop Trying to Play Petty Dictators

We’ve reached an age where every social event has become incredibly stressful, insecure about our adulting abilities we sit around comparing and acting like the high school kids we should no longer be. “Have you tried MY diet?

Trump had vocal nonwhite

Code of the Social Justice Warrior: How Wealth Disparity Creates Ineffective Activists and How to Fix It

Author’s Note: We write this not to divide the left, but to reclaim it for the academics and working class activists that made us proud to identify as liberal. A petite, Asian girl walks into the center of a “safe space” for unburdening herself about the racial tension she faces. Ten seconds into this confession,

Stop Letting the College Kids Be in Charge

I got dragged into meetings a lot while I was in college, because if you are really a threat to the status quo, people will try to change your behavior. Fortunately for me, people took the time to help me develop, so as irritating as these meetings were, occasionally I learned something important from attending
