Blogger Bills: Happy Pride Month!

Hi followers, are you celebrating this month? We’re in the middle of LGBT Pride Month, a time in particular for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and trans community to celebrate diverse sexual orientations and genders. June was chosen to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots which is said to have sparked LGBT activism in the United States. While there is certainly time and cause for cheer, we’d be … Continue reading Blogger Bills: Happy Pride Month!

Is My Mom Not Economically Anxious?

Following the US 2016 election which gave us President Trump, there seemed to be a frenzy of reporters clamoring to share his supporters’ stories. Sam Bee and Full Frontal beat me at covering this biased narrative of poor, rural whites voting out of “economic anxiety.” Bee also brought up the point that– wait for it– “working class” is not synonymous with white! At first I … Continue reading Is My Mom Not Economically Anxious?

Book Club? with Blackwater

Hello readers, how are your sinuses? Last year I bought myself Blackwater as a belated birthday present and have only recently gotten around to it. I love learning, but it takes me 100 years to read non-fiction. One reason is because I feel like I should record or memorize everything. That may be futile, but at least with a blog, I’ve a searchable way to revisit what … Continue reading Book Club? with Blackwater

Whitewashing Feminism

Hello readers, are you keeping dry? One thing I’ve noticed bloggers/influencers painted as (and I can’t say I haven’t thought it myself) is vapid or at least not utilizing any massive platform for action more meaningful. It’s understandable– many blog for business and wouldn’t want to alienate any potential customers. So it’s refreshing and inspiring to see women who haven’t or don’t usually talk about … Continue reading Whitewashing Feminism

Scandalize My Name

Heya pals, give up your resolutions yet? 😅 Perhaps I should start a series on the things I find at 4am. I wrote about The Visit, and today I want to share a short documentary called Scandalize My Name. Although the US allied with the Soviet Union in WWII, soon afterwards, we decided that communists can’t sit with us. McCarthyism became the witch hunt of the times. … Continue reading Scandalize My Name

Shop Latinx Wishlist!

So I was originally going to blog about prison labor and companies to avoid, but since writing my Beauty Bakerie post, I’ve been reminded that there’s no ethical consumption under capitalism (hard to trace every factor of a product) and trickle-down economics don’t work. Furthermore, the companies benefiting from what’s being called slavery are the usual suspects like Walmart which may be difficult for poor … Continue reading Shop Latinx Wishlist!

Net Neutrality

Hey there reader! Do you have a blog or other website? Is it Google or Facebook? If not, you might be interested in a little idea called net neutrality. Today websites, Internet users and other activists will be taking action to raise awareness about and support for it. Net neutrality prevents Internet Service Providers (Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, etc) from charging websites and apps attracting traffic. … Continue reading Net Neutrality
