3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Agree with Everything You Read

Recently I had a conversation with someone who doesn’t understand my tendency to read blogs and books written by people with whom I disagree. Why not focus on everyone who sees the world exactly the way that you do? Well, many of the writers I follow do agree with me. There’s comfort in spending time with…






The Problem With Moving Away

Seven years ago I moved 350 miles away from the small town where I spent the second half of my childhood. This was something I started thinking about almost as soon as we moved there. It wasn’t a dangerous or terrible place to live by any means…I was just never very good at small town…






A Response to Picking Up the Best Bits

Olivia at Reading in the Bath recently had something interesting to say about her experiences with online childfree groups: So one of the things I’ve enjoyed about sticking around in a few different groups for a while and getting past all the (to me) slightly awkward ‘I like children…with sauce’ jokes, is that I’ve found…






The Ethics of Being on Time

I’ve been having an internal debate about the intersection of ethics and culture. Punctuality is something I take pretty seriously. 15 minutes early is on time, arriving on time is late for me. A few minutes here or there isn’t a big deal but being chronically late eventually says something to me about how much…

We have a serious problem. We harbor certain stereotypes or assumptions. We need to unlearn some stuff. We need a plan.











The Grammar of Purple People

We hate some persons because we do not know them; and we will not know them because we hate them. –Charles Caleb Colton When we envision a person we generally assume that, of course, the individual in question is: Male Christian Middle Class Cisgendered Straight Able-Bodied Neurotypical Caucasian Intelligent Healthy And probably a few other things…






Poverty Museum

I recently re-visited our local natural and world history museum and was struck by what narrow slices of history were up for public viewing. Imagine if our society was only shown through the homes and possessions of  movie stars and high-ranking government officials a thousand years from now. The picture it would paint of life…
