Ten Things

10 random things about me... because some jerk (or jerkette browbeat me into it): 1. I'm a hugger, but I rarely initiate a hug. 2. People either like me or hate me, but the ones that hate me usually do so because of my reaction to something they said or did. 3. If someone doesn't like me, I won't lose a minute of sleep over it, life's too short. 4. Most of the jokes I know are ones I probably...

The Beauty Scam

Once you get used to the idea that the perception of beauty is managed by companies using things like photo manipulation and unrealistic standards to spread the message "buy our shit or you're ugly," you actually stop caring what "they" think is beautiful and start learning to live happily in your own body.

Me: "There are times that I wish I lived near where some of you idiots are turning down gigs like this, you had a...

Chat Snippet: “Bewbs… yadda yadda and Yaha and so on”

I have a lot of random conversations through the interwebs, here's a piece of one. Her: "I look at the stuff Yayahan wears and its like she's never even heard of femimism!" Me: "First, Yaya Han, two names there, it makes it sound like you confused her with Benihana. Second, a goal of feminism is for women to be able to wear what they want without being judged for it. So, she's doing her part and...
