How Donald Trump will Destroy America for our Children

I wanted to write a lighthearted Saint Patrick’s Day post today but Donald Trump has me terrified. It has nothing to do with being a Republican or a Democrat; it’s him, as a person. I am a Political Scientist by degree, I’m not sure many of you know that about me. Politics are my jam. [...]

Why the Peace on Earth Holiday Photo Doesn’t Infuriate Me

When you think of peace on earth does your mind immediately go to women should be seen and not heard? Do you think the above photo can be construed as funny? I don’t. I find it offensive that a family would request this sort of photo that makes light of such a serious topic as [...]

Is Donald Trump the Next Hitler or a Hoax?

On a daily basis, Donald Trump says something that either shocks or appalls me. The man says the most outlandish, hateful and bigoted things; things that seem almost as if he is testing the American people just to see how stupid they really are; how far they will allow him to go, like a toddler testing [...]

Creepy Guys with Broken Leg Cast Fetish: Updates from the Couch

I've had an eventful week, I discovered what the term cast fetish means. Ever heard of it? Me neither until now. Last week I had my 8-week follow up appointment with my orthopedic surgeon for my broken leg and the news was good. I was released to begin weight bearing. This week I’m up to [...]

I Am Feminist, Watch Me Free Bleeding

Cause she’s free, free bleeding! Sorry, I just can’t get that damn Tom Petty song out of my head ever since I read that  article about the woman running the London marathon while on her period with absolutely no feminine hygiene help. Tampons…we don’t need no stinking tampons (or maxi pads for that matter). We are woman, [...]

Dentist Murders Cecil the Lion Claims He Didn’t Know Any Better

Have you seen this photo of Walter Palmer, the dentist from Minnesota who murdered Cecil the Lion,  perched proudly above the remains of a dead lion? It proves that Walter Palmer has no respect for life. There are bad people in the world that's not a secret. I've always leaned more towards the crunchy, tree-hugging and animal [...]

The Charleston Shooting is a Black and White Problem and We’re All Responsible

The Charleston Shooting was not an isolated case. It's not even the first time RECENTLY that unwarranted violence has happened in Charleston. It was the brutal murdering of 9 innocent African Americans for no other reason than being black. The Charleston Shooting is not just something that happened to the American people. This is something that we [...]

The Kylie Jenner Challenge is Lip Plumping for Idiots

Can someone please explain the Kylie Jenner Challenge to me? I had to bring back the Throat Punch Thursday for this! Look I thought teens had lost their minds when they decided that the cinnamon challenge was a good idea. Call me old but choking to death on dry cinnamon is not my idea of [...]

Fear and Ignorance is What’s Killing Black Men

Yet another African American man, Walter Scott, has been shot dead in the streets. Hearing this saddens me but seeing the video infuriates me. How many people have to die before we change what we will accept from law enforcement, from the justice system and from ourselves? A 50-year-old black man was pulled over for a broken taillight [...]

All Little Girls Think They’re Fat

“I’m fat! Just look at my flabby arms!” This is what I overheard amongst the ballerinas today. 11-year-olds should not be worrying about flabby arms, especially since not one of the 10 preteen girls included in this conversation are fat or had flabby arms. My heart sunk and my stomach turned as I realized if [...]
