#writereditorproblems

August 3, 2016 | 0 Comments

I make the majority of my living on proofreading and copyediting books for major publishers on a freelance basis. This leaves me with many #writereditorproblems. Case in point: I just finished proofreading a novel that I found utterly repugnant, and I need to relieve some pressure. [...continue...]

Luna Luna: Why We Need #yesallpeople

June 2, 2014 | 0 Comments

So I wrote an article over at Luna Luna about why I think that we should try, where possible, to shift from the #yesallwomen/#notallmen hashtag flame war into a more inclusive conversation. I think we should use #yesallpeople to talk about the universally destructive effects of misogyny on our [...continue...]

Using My Brain While Menstruating

January 17, 2014 | 0 Comments

I am sitting here in front of my computer and my brain is telling me I should be blogging. I have been staring at the screen for a while, telling myself I’m certain I have something–SOMETHING–to type about. And I do have somethings. They’re in there. They flit across my [...continue...]

A Con, by Any Other Name…

October 15, 2012 | 0 Comments

"Hey, I like your… ears. Lemme take a picture!" Before this weekend, it had been years since I’d been to a convention that didn’t revolve entirely around sex. Adult entertainment conventions, sex-positivity conventions, adult novelty conventions… Sex, sex, sex. So [...continue...]

Feminism Shrank Rush Limbaugh’s Dick. Poor, Poor Rush.

September 21, 2012 | 0 Comments

I know it’s kind of silly to get annoyed by Rush Limbaugh at this point. The man has been making his living by pissing people off for years, so pretty much anything that comes out of his mouth is designed specifically and only to do just that. He’s held to no standard of decency or [...continue...]

Considering “Sex is Cheap” and the Outrage it Caused

March 1, 2011 | 0 Comments

When Slate published an article called “Sex is Cheap” by Mark Regnerus earlier this week, people went a little apeshit about it. Regnerus’s main point in the feature was that while young men these days seem to be falling behind the benchmarks made by their predecessors in the [...continue...]
