Anger & Revolution

This morning I woke up thinking about the Rebecca Traister’s book “Good & Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women’s Anger,” which I read about a year after 45’s Inauguration. I’m thinking specifically about the part where Traister writes about suburban white women typically voting along with their husbands; feeling secure in their patriarchy adjacent privilegeContinue reading “Anger & Revolution”

I’m Not Going to Post About Amy Coney Barrett

I’m not going to blog about the inevitable Senate confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett.Because I know you know it’s utter bullshit. I don’t have to tell you that her “originalist” philosophy is nonsense and disproven by the very fact she is vying for this position. I don’t have to tell you that the fact theContinue reading “I’m Not Going to Post About Amy Coney Barrett”

I decided to up my playground game a tad and finally test drive my Mother Denim (no charging required). I have been wearingContinue reading “Oh Mother (Denim)”

But then we’re in the car in New Mexico driving by a trailer park which leads to a convo about housing and SectionContinue reading “Post-Debate Emotional Hangover”

Saturday Musings

“Hope is annoying because it makes demands of you.” -Jon Lovett I’ve got my dissent earrings in, my RBG mug in hand and I’m suiting up and going for a walk to honor a bad ass lady who also took time for self-care. I think this quote about hope kept me from falling down theContinue reading “Saturday Musings”

This Wasn’t What I Had Planned // I Dissent

This wasn’t what I had planned. I had a pithy post about pants scheduled (that is far more unplanned alliteration than I am comfortable with quite frankly). I scrapped it. I was going to let my silence speak for itself, but as a 12-hour old blog, I doubt it would have been noticed. This wasn’tContinue reading “This Wasn’t What I Had Planned // I Dissent”
