On Peace and Love

Violence is never acceptable. Threats and intimidation are not speech.

May Wrap-Up: Goodbye and Good Riddance

Everyone I know is sad, mad, and scared. I feel angry and helpless most of the time. (I got a tattoo about it. It helped… Continue reading May Wrap-Up: Goodbye and Good Riddance

Books That Would Have Been Improved With a Queer Romance

I have watched Our Flag Means Death all the way through twice and I want to know: why can't media be this queer all the time?? Other media is so BORING by comparison!

These… Continue reading Books That Would Have Been Improved With a Queer Romance
