I like reptiles and have strong opinions about some things. This blog is mostly about those things.
questions to ask on a first date: what do you think the A in LGBTQA stands for?
White women’s feminisms still center around equality, a point on which Traister and Shulevitz converge. Black women’s feminisms demand justice. There is a difference.

Like, “Oh, you like snakes? This story has a snake being brutally murdered due to irrational fear. It has a snake in it. So you’ll like that.”
No???? No I don’t??????????
