dude, being addicted to fanfiction is so weird. you stay in front of your computer for hours a day reading different versions of those same characters falling in love and fucking again, again, again and again. and yet, we’re looking for more, creating more, making fanarts because, apparently, nothing in the world is more fulfilling than fictional love, the love we cannot have. that’s either inspiring or unsettling. or both.

Review of Kristin Cashore's Graceling, Fire, and Bitterblue

I absolutely love to read. Books are basically my best friends. Dan and I even took some of our engagement photos in a secondhand bookstore. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that I particularly enjoy books that feature well-written, diverse female characters. Fantasy fiction is one of my favorite genres, and I’ve been lucky to find so many brilliant works of…

As a child I never heard one woman say to me, “I love my body.” Not my mother, my elder sister, my best friend. No one woman has ever said, “I am so proud of my body.” So I make sure to say it to Mia, because a positive physical outlook has to start at an early age.

What I Wore: Black and White Stripes with Pops of Red

If you follow me on Twitter, then you probably know that I work from home, managing social media, writing press releases, and more for Cynexis Media. And while some business people advocate for professional dress even in a home office, I do not. Even when I do go into the office in Columbus, I wear jeans with a hoodie, or shorts with a tank top. At home, I usually rock pajamas or sweats since no…

The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything.

this is a super important explanation to think about whenever you feel like telling someone that something isn’t racist because you don’t hate x person.

Feminism 101: Learning the Lingo

Feminism 101 vocabulary and jargon

I’m excited to announce an exciting new blog series: Feminism 101. I’ve spent more than a decade explaining some of the basic concepts behind feminism to people who ask me about it, so I’ve finally decided to consolidate what I’ve learned in one place. To any feminists reading these posts: this is very much an introduction to feminism. I’m sticking to the basics for now. I’m happy to point you…
