    WTF is a “Narrative of Disempowerment”?

    What do I mean by the phrase “narrative of disempowerment”? I’ve used it a few times within the past month to discuss things as varied as trigger warnings and privilege.

    I’m talking about any message from any institution or force that we internalize, which leads us to self-doubt, or blind allegiances.
    Anything that causes you to split from yourself, or not think critically is disempowering.…

    #CreateNormal

    While we’re all born with inherent and inalienable rights, some of us born with more privilege and power than others. In Western society, that means is that there are the Haves and the Have Nots, and that the Have Nots access to resources (wealth, political power, etc.) is more limited than the Haves. I accept this fact and acknowledge it as true. What I don’t accept is the narrative of…

    It’s All Funny When They’re Binary Code - #jadapose #tech

    I’m normally not one to give press to bad news– especially news that mainstream media will likely use as a diversion– but this story particularly disturbed me. A young man allegedly drugged and raped his classmate, Jada. He then proceeded to take pictures of her limp body which he posted on social media, inspiring assholes across the internet to recreate the “Jada pose” in their own posts. Look,

    More Reasons I No Longer Use Trigger Warnings |

    As I move further and further away from distractions, I’ve grown increasingly disillusioned with a host of social justice practices I find unproductive. One of them is trigger warnings (TW’s).
    Sunday night I wrote a post laying out a few reasons I stopped using them, but as I’ve thought about it, I realize I have a few more I think are worth sharing. In no particular order, here are three more:

    10 Things Tuesday #1

    In an effort to feed two birds with one worm, I’m instituting 10 Things Tuesday.

    This ensures I have a post at least every Tuesday, in addition to sharing myself, instead of just content I think people wanna read. On to the first installment. (more…)

  • Why I No Longer Use Trigger Warnings

    Why I No Longer Use #TriggerWarnings

    *A handful or two of times in the last few years I’ve used trigger warnings on social media, though I rarely use them in real life beyond warning someone that something is graphic or “fucked up”.
    Using them always rubbed me the wrong way and it’s only this year that I’ve disavowed them as a rule. It took for me to read this post on the Bully Bloggers’ site to enumerate why.

    This post is just an…
