I’ll give it to you in “plain English,” whatever that is supposed to be. Transgender Americans are Americans. After we spent last year arguing over whether our trans friends should be allowed to pee in public, this year the Commander in Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces decided they should not be allowed to serve… Read More What “brave men and women” actually means
After over a year of what seemed to be a political bloodbath that didn’t do much more than gray President Obama’s hair and allow the KKK to speak up again, we are less than a day away from electing a new Commander-in-Chief. It is mostly you all, my internet friends, who have consistently questioned why… Read More A Very Human Election Day
The reason those “social justice warriors” the Internet hates so much exist is because people like Tennessee’s Rick Tyler exist. Who’s Rick Tyler? Come with me, won’t you? To the state where the likes of Bob Dylan and Dolly Parton created their best art. To the state with some of the best barbecue you ever done tasted.… Read More “Make America White Again” is a real thing now.

It’s finally here! A day of friendship, companionship, relationship…so many ships. The only day where pink and red don’t clash, but compliment.

A day that, in college, is celebrated with singles’ parties and… Read More A Very Human Valentine’s Day
A few days ago, there happened to be one of those horrible ‘awkwardly tug at your own collar’ moments. Someone fairly important said something fairly not good. Ever been to Maine? Neither have I. The most I knew about that place was that it was decorated with gorgeous woods and mountains and country roads… Read More Smoothie and Shifty Go to Maine
If you’d like a preface, check out “Soft Language for Soft People” before reading this. This is somewhat of a ‘pt. 2.’ I am a millennial. Most of my readers are also millennials.

Fifty years ago, A Charlie Brown Christmas was released. The storyline featured Charlie Brown and his inner conflict about Christmas becoming “too commercial.” The major turning point in the half hour special is Linus’s speech wherein he quotes the Gospel of Luke (the story of the nativity) and ends it with, “That’s what Christmas is all about,… Read More What’s Christmas Really About?
