Was it spring or winter? Was I six or was I eleven? I honestly can’t remember. Pop and I were out picking up supplies at the local mall, and I’d lobbied my way into three minutes at the toy store. I made a bee line to the Lego section (Legos being, before computers, the only […]
Disclaimer: While this post is mostly a response to a specific article (and subsequent Facebook conversation), it does contain some criticism of feminist theory. Given the subject matter, this is basically impossible to avoid. If you are one who gets upset at hearing third wave feminism criticized, please embrace the choice of either stopping here […]
After finishing a 15 hour audiobook on the fall of the Roman Republic, I am taking away the following information. Digest it how you will.
I received a lot of comments (both on- and off-line) about the above picture that I shared on Facebook. I didn’t mean for things to get so real.
