Millennials Don’t Cook: A Personal Explanation

A good friend of mine, a Gen X-er, once said that, among many other grievances he has with my generation, we millennials just don't cook.┬áBecause I wasn't present for that particular conversation, and because I find generational differences fascinating, I thought I'd add my own thoughts here. The first of which, when I first heard … Continue reading Millennials Don’t Cook: A Personal Explanation

Hai I’m trans, don’t talk to me about India

So, I wrote this post in an effort to get out some bubbling thoughts overtaking my brain about gender across time and culture. And now that I've had time to process, I've figured out exactly what my issue is. Namely, I am just really, really over cis/newly out trans people/books in the Trans Canon dragging … Continue reading Hai I’m trans, don’t talk to me about India

This is me trying to talk about the anachronisms of applying ancient genders to present day trans people, via a discussion of the modern separation of gender and sexuality, but really just throwing up all my gender feels

On Privilege, Marginalization, and the go-between Residual Effects

A couple years ago, one of my favorite YouTubers, Kat Blaque did an episode of True Tea responding to modern day white Americans claiming that, because the Irish, Italians, and other predominantly Catholic European ethnic groups were marginalized, that white people also experience racism. I'd link the video, but it has since been taken down. … Continue reading On Privilege, Marginalization, and the go-between Residual Effects

In which I process random thoughts concerning age while staring at a fountain

Once, while I was out with one of my dear friends, I confessed that I had never gotten the appeal of dating someone younger than me. Of course, that's probably because I'm not at the right age to understand that kind of appeal; and furthermore, at my age, if you do see someone considerably younger … Continue reading In which I process random thoughts concerning age while staring at a fountain
