I Vow

"How dare I be discouraged in the work by anything so trivial as the fear of personal failure?" - Paul Williams I am a white cisgender woman. I will mess it up. I will do it wrong. I will have good intentions and they will sometimes translate into shitty actions. I will be thoughtless sometimes, selfish... Continue Reading →

Asteria House

Names have power. I have been referring to my home as The Fox Den for a few years now. It truly has been a place of safety and comfort, a place where my little fox self could hide out and be held tightly. In the first Lord of the Rings movie, Galadriel says: The world is... Continue Reading →

Holding on to Hope

Black people are being MURDERED by police EVERY GODDAMN DAY and it is being sanctioned by the state while white folk turn a blind eye to blatant,systemic racism in the United States. Indigenous people are peaceably protesting to protect our water, which, when last I checked, is essential to the survival of life on our planet, and we... Continue Reading →

I tire of this world. I am tired of place where different equals dangerous, where fear consistently trumps love, a world without the capacity for awe. But I'm not sure how to remake a whole world. It takes many hands, holding onto love...and many hearts, risking awe. I'm sure of those ingredients. We don't have much... Continue Reading →

“I’ll Never Vote for Hillary!” Yeah, OK.

“I’m not here to argue Hillary vs Bernie. I genuinely like them both. I’m here to say that I’m sick of seeing her reviled for the same things people forgive easily when they’re done by men, and that the stakes are too high this election cycle to indulge that or leave it unexamined. If you’re reviling Hillary for saying something racist and stupid in 1994 in favor of a crime bill that turned out to be a very bad idea, but you’re not reviling Sanders for actually using his political power to make that very bad crime bill law, I want you to take a long, long think about why that is. If you’re reviling Hillary for campaign contributions made by banks, but did not revile Obama for the same thing, I want you to take a long, long think about why that is.”

The latest installment of “The Internet Explodes with Hatred for Hillary Clinton” happened earlier this week, when HRC (whose own record on AIDS research and funding is better than any other candidate) mistakenly said that Nancy Reagan was a lowkey supporter of AIDS research, when Reagan was, in reality, a massive asshole about AIDS in every possible way. Clinton immediately apologized, then apologized again, at length. Yet we’re still seeing a wagonload of “I’ll never vote for her” from progressives, as if her words about Reagan trump (and I’m using that verb deliberately) her actual record on AIDS research and funding. Why?
.
Clinton’s stellar record on AIDS is ignored while people indignantly attack her for making an inaccurate statement. I like Bernie. I really do feel the Bern. But I see Democrats brush aside things he and other male politicians have done while raining fire on Hillary for…

It’s all related, somehow.

At the beginning of the day, I found out that there was a mass shooting in Wilkinsburg, near my home. Instead of heading in to the office, I went to the Women and Girls Foundation's Crossroads Conference and sat and listened to women speak candidly and vulnerably about a variety of crossroads that they had...
