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? šŸ˜… Perhaps I should start a series on the things I find at 4am. I wrote aboutĀ The Visit, and today I want to share a short documentary calledĀ 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.

Power to the People

Happy Black History Month! I’m know I’m posting this on its last day and obviously we shouldn’t restrict educating ourselves and celebrating once a year, but I wanted to get this in becauseĀ we have this designation. Sharing and learning the often overlooked and erased contributions of a people is the whole point of this month! I won a giveaway from Goodreads a couple of months … Continue reading Power to the People

One of the great things about blogging is seeing people from all over theĀ globe. So I’m sorry that this post is going to be very United States-centered! However, at least here in the U.S., there’s a narrative comparing other leaders or candidates to our current president, so perhaps you can relate. I’ve been raised to follow politics through pop culture or comedy programs, but other … Continue reading Engage
