“Pro-lifers don’t carry guns. Ever.”

pro life

... That's not my opinion, mind you. It's a reader's opinion, left for me in the comment section of this post.Since I've encountered this statement before I thought I'd talk a little about what it means to be pro-life and what actively being pro-life looks like.For context, here's what I wrote."If someone told you that you were going to meet a complete and total stranger for coffee what would you do? You would be extra cautious, of course ... meet in a public crowded place, … [Read more...]

Just Give Me Comics Without Porn, Please…


... I am so tired of intentional vulgarity disguised as entertainment.I like graphic novels and comics for the artwork, fantastic stories, and unlikely heroes and villains, but why oh why do they have to contain nudity and sexually explicit content? If I wanted to see people having sex in print format then I'd buy a damn hustler magazine.I want to read an incredible story illustrated by amazingly talented artists. Don't tell me you can't do that without sex and nudity or half naked, … [Read more...]

“When I look back over my life Catholicism was always there”…


... I've taken on a side project called The Catholic Five. It's basically five Catholics sitting around talking about Catholic-y things. The host, David Gray, has also started compiling video interviews of people telling their conversion stories. I love conversion stories, so I was pretty excited to share mine when David asked.Conversions stories are always unique to the person telling them, which makes them so interesting because they are as diverse as people are, but more importantly … [Read more...]

... Yesterday the second trailer of series 9 of Doctor Who was unveiled. And it looks more and more like my fan theory, that The Doctor visits Westeros, has become a possibility. Look at it.

The sea? Is it the Cult of Neptune? Maybe it's the Church of Cthulhu where they worship the ancient ones. There's no other information for me to go on other than an ambiguous … [Read more...]

Why I am Glad My Family Quietly Suspected I Was A Lesbian…


... In college my best friend and I decided to shave our heads. I wish I could say it was done in defiance of unrealistic standards of beauty, feminist power, riot grrrl angst, or even a raging case of head lice. Nope, if memories recalls correctly, I shaved my head because I really, really liked this boy who played bass guitar in a straight edge band.Surprisingly, this was not the worst of my fashion offenses.Maybe it's the setting (a family wedding) that makes this look like … [Read more...]
