I Need A New Hobby

The Cost of Free Speech

I watch awkward scenes with my hands over my eyes, wincing at the uncomfortableness and wishing it were over. When debates devolve into nonsensical shouty fests with candidates making personal accusations, I turn down the sound or turn off the coverage. I literally cringe at the cringe-worthy moments. I’m a peacemaker — I don’t

No, it’s not an idea for a band name (though that would be awesome). Uterine Justice refers to the latest and not-so-greatest attempts to mansplain how us ladies need to be better baby-ovens and stop trying to assert ...
The Disestablishment of Roe v. Wade

Uterine Justice

by
No, it’s not an idea for a band name (though that would be awesome). Uterine Justice refers to the latest and not-so-greatest attempts to mansplain how us ladies need to be better baby-ovens and stop trying to assert rights to our own bodies based on things like medicine and science. When I was burgeoning into [&hellip

A few weeks ago, I tried to explain to people who opposed Hillary Clinton why I liked her. That fact, plus other posts I’ve written for The Snap Download, may have already clued you in to my feelings about Donald Trump but just to lay it all out, nice and clear, here is why: Dear [&hellip

I have mild social anxiety disorder and intermittent generalized anxiety disorder which means that I spend a lot of my waking hours worried about stuff that makes absolutely no sense to panic about. Embarrassing myself in front of friends, not knowing what I’m talking about at work, getting lost, being late for something, obsessing over

She Can Be Prez But I'm Still Claiming Queen of Everything Title

Dear ‘Muricans: Why I Like Hillary

by
Recently I was asked why I support Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton and want to see her become the 45th President of the United States. The tone with which I was asked indicated the questioner believed it was mainly because she is a woman. To my own ears, my response sounded defensive and disjointed — like [&hellip

Hey, Remember Congress?

by
It’s time for everyone’s favorite game, “Hey, Remember Congress?”!! That’s when we put aside the fact that our attention spans have been bore-sighted on the nonstop campaign shitshow and instead spend about 90 seconds thinking about the people we already elected and have been paying upwards of $175,000 a year to represent us.

Trumpmerica: Like a Dystopian Hellscape But Without The Warmth

Picture it: January 2018, Trumpmerica. A year has passed since Donald J. Trump, née Drumpf, was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of Great America. It only took reporters 30 days to be able to say “President Trump” without nervously giggling and less than that for RNC Chairman Reince Priebus to [&hellip

What do you think was the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day? Under the Sea? Ladies drink free? No, it was #PledgeForParity. That may sound less exciting than the standard prom theme but since women won’t ...

What do you think was the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day? Under the Sea? Ladies drink free? No, it was #PledgeForParity. That may sound less exciting than the standard prom theme but since women won’t achieve political or economic parity for something like 117 goddam years I’m literally seeing red from my pending
