“How important is it for you to finish high school in Newtown?” Just what every hormonal high school boy wants to hear, when he’s finally a varsity player on different teams, has friends, good grades, and – miraculously – just discovered girls, other than his sisters, weren’t nearly as super annoying as previously thought. Nope, not at all. But in November 2016, Trump the GOP candidate for President, and while I never ever ever thought he’d actually
I didn’t want to go to Washington. I don’t believe any of us did. Getting on a bus at 1:30 in the morning for the five-hour pussy pilgrimage to DC to march in unity against assaults on [insert female and/or marginalized community of your choice]’s civil liberties, freedom, and safety back, say 30-50-100+ years, give or take, was not on the top ten list of anyone: white, black, brown, rich, poor, educated, old, young,
Like most women, the relationship we have with our hair stylist is sacrosanct. We’d cheat on our husbands before we’d leave our stylists. This is not hyperbole. This is truth.

Once upon a time, a small organization called Connecticut Against Gun Violence did really good work with very little fanfare to reduce gun violence in our little state. They had a couple hundred Facebook fans – maybe, less active members, a teeny tiny budget, and a staff of 1-1/2, or thereabouts. And then.

Got this text from my kid this morning, a female college senior at what’s considered by some a dude engineering school, ready to graduate and make her mark on the world. Rough day, eh America? Suddenly the land of the free and home of the brave is transformed into the home of the privileged, and not-so-privileged, white male. Bring us your racist, misogynistic, fear mongering, xenophobe sexual predator tax cheating liars.
I can’t write much about the pussy grabbing misogynistic racist running for president, but Election Day is looming, so here it goes, even though it hurts my heart, brain, and vagina to do so. I want him to lose and go away, far, far away, and then I want HRC’s primary focus to be education so that perhaps our electorate will learn enough to know when an evil person is force-feeding intolerable notions
