In my world, pop culture and trash TV can provide some of the most powerful insights into who we are becoming as a society. Take the TV sensation Glee as an example. I was an avid Glee watcher during its first season. As much as I am a sucker for poor television, I am even … Continue reading

A little wisdom from Susan

“I think the girl who is able to earn her own living and pay her own way should be as happy as anybody on earth. The sense of independence and security is very sweet.” – Susan B. Anthony How sweet it is, Suzie B.

Gayness isn’t contagious

Gayness isn’t contagious

I often wonder about people who are anti-gay rights. I wonder how they were raised, or who their parents were, or where they grew up. I think about what books they read, what activities they did, or who their friends were. In my imagination, there was once a small town where a classroom text book … Continue reading

Lady anthems

She is so insanely bossy and bad ass I almost can’t even deal with her. I thought she couldn’t top “Run the World” as a lady anthem, but I think … Continue reading

My Final Rose

My Final Rose

It’s no surprise that I love reality TV. The gold standard for cheese ball television – besides American Idol – is “The Bachelor”. This season, we found Sean. A hunky piece of hunk, tall, blonde hair/blue eyes with a sweet sensibility who is looking for his soul mate. What unfolded was a slew of romantic … Continue reading

Is your Playstation a misogynist?

Is your Playstation a misogynist?

It’s no surprise that video games are strong influencers on our society. Gamers spend hours upon hours staring at their screens, manipulating their virtual worlds to gain victory. Putting the violence aside, which is a whole other can of worms, I am increasingly disturbed at the overt sexualization of the female characters in most games. The boobs, … Continue reading
