United We Kneel

"Back when I was growing up, football players just played the game and kept their mouths shut," a family member said during our nice dinner. Picking up on the hint, I kept my mouth shut and didn't point out the fact that Colin Kaepernick wasn't actually saying anything but kneeling but anyway... If I had... Continue Reading →

Why March?

(That's a sign a complete stranger gave to me on the way to the March when she saw I didn't have one. That's my friend Shon. I asked him to come with me because I didn't want to go alone. He was already planning on going and happily walked with me.) About a week ago,... Continue Reading →

Supergirl

Given the content of this blog, one might think I was drawn to Supergirl because the show revolves around a badass, crime-fighting female. While being very true, it isn’t the full story. I have to admit, I wasn’t too interested in watching a female-version of Superman. I mean, I wasn't all that into Superman or the vigilante scene... Continue Reading →

headphonegrrl plugged in: Girl Crush

I’ve written this post a few different ways but was never really comfortable with it… Until a dear friend of mine brought up how her daughter was internalizing messages about females from popular songs. Her daughter said that in the song, the singer was saying how much she needed her love interest. My friend immediately corrected... Continue Reading →

I am a Humanist

A bit ago I watched the Oscars at a co-worker’s house with her and 7 of her friends, all women. Her husband hid in the computer room while we praised NPH and all his awesomeness. Patricia Arquette accepted the award for Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role and said in her speech “It’s... Continue Reading →
