New Logic: Why Skinny Shaming Isn’t Reverse Discrimination

Skinny Shaming Isn’t As Harmful as Fat Shaming Because Equality.  Confused? Me too. Another day in the femsphere and another confounded look on my face.  If you are skinny, prepare to enjoy yet another slap upon the usual skinny slaps for daring to take care of your body.  I have a skinny but fit body, so I’m already checking my privilege as I take my lumps. I stumbled upon this article on my newsfeed and since I don’t completely immerse myself just in my own preferred bubble of thoughts, I made sure to read though it.  Of course, it confirms...

“We need to seriously address connections between violence, sexism and toxic ideas of manhood before boys and men commit more mass shootings.”

Improving Your Situation Always Starts With You.

On my WP feed, an important post was made on a blog I follow called , “A Holistic Journey“. The blogger, alohaleya, recently wrote a post, My Fiction Put Me In Debt, in which she talks about the effects of resentment in her life toward her father as well as feeling shame for holding others responsible. What specifically caught my attention was the following: “I’m the one who’s chosen to interpret my life events as I have. I’m the one who’s assigned deep meaning to old memories…and this meaning no longer serves. For years, I viewed my dad in a...

Why Voting 3rd Party Can Change History: The Election of 1924 0

Why Voting 3rd Party Can Change History: The Election of 1924

I often browse the blog of economist and author Aaron Clarey who goes by the name, Captain Capitalism for his blog.  His post, Conservative Idiots Who “Protest the Vote” about this upcoming election misses an important lesson from history where voting 3rd party changed the results of an election. History – for those of us who actually read it instead of watching Netflix – can teach us all sorts of fun things that internet comment brawls can’t. Voting 3rd party can push a main party in a specific direction. Don’t believe me? Take for example the presidential election of 1924.   Calvin Coolidge crushed...

5 Ways To Eat Healthy and Cheap on The Run

I live like a homeless person.  I can sometimes grab food when I stay at my friends house or at my parents, but often I end up sleeping in my car to save gas.    This means that the free cheap meals can be hard to attain. One of the biggest expenses that I, many college students, and many of my friends have in general is eating out.  Unfortunately that usually includes crappy fast food which you know is bad for you, but you don’t have the time to cook a meal.   Welcome to my world. Well it’s time...

Is Chris Kluwe bullying people through lawsuits? 4

Is Chris Kluwe bullying people through lawsuits?

One way to shut someone up is to either scare them with the threat of a lawsuit or just actually sue them. It appears Chris Kluwe understands this, but this time he isn’t picking on his former NFL team, but rather on a mansophere entrepreneur and lawyer, Mike Cernovich, from Danger & Play with the “defamation” card this time. While usually these tactics are employed by angry businesses and corporations on yelp against anonymous users for negative reviews, you can apparently go after people for their tweets on twitter as well.  This is probably just one more reason why you might want to consider anonymity...

How to Shave and Trim like a Man and Mount That Facial Stubble

The three greatest inventions ever know to man are pretty damn obvious. They include the electric shaver, the urinal, and the internet.   Okay, semantics aside dogs aren’t actually men’s best friend; the electric shaver is.  Two things to consider: 1. You DONT have to be clean-shaven. You can even grow a massive beard.  Even if your job bans facial hair or has strict guidelines about it, there are always ways around. Example: Go to your local mosque, tell the Imam you want to convert to Islam, and bring the proof of your conversion to your work.  They won’t hassle/...
