Dear White People, Please Don’t Complain About Going Home for Thanksgiving

Over the past few weeks, I’ve heard and read so many pieces by white people complaining about going home for Thanksgiving, and I can’t relate.  Most of these people are well-meaning liberals who can’t bear the thought of sitting across the table from someone who voted for Donald Trump, whose vote reinforces ableist, misogynistic, and racist violence.  Some […]

Self-Care is my Political Tool

On Wednesday, November 9th, 2016, I woke up refusing to let the election impact me.

Feministing Reads: What We (Re)Read During Tough Times

It’s been a tough ten days, tougher for some than for others. I’ve swung from crying to numbness, from anger that feels helpful and focused and productive to frozenness, and back all over again.
