Independence, Freedom, Paulo Freire and Me

I am not a huge fan of July 4th. Yes, independence from the english is always a day to be celebrated, fuck colonization. I choose to celebrate independence in ways that are not reflected by the culture in which I find myself living. Instead of drinking too much and playing with explosives I generally tend … Continue reading Independence, Freedom, Paulo Freire and Me

Transcending Boundaries Conference — this weekend in Worcester, MA

I'm wicked excited to be a part of Transcending Boundaries. I am heading to Worcester MA this weekend to present my research and perform a show on the same topic, Gender Variant Language!

Sexy Skin

I love to look at tats on other people. I fantasize about having them on me all the time. I long to tattoo political ideologies and manifestos on my arms. I have had fantasies about having tattoos ever since I was little. About two weeks before I turned 18 I went into a tattoo parlor … Continue reading Sexy Skin

This Place Is So Weird

Vegas is like a giant 24 hour Wal-Mart with booze. It attracts the lowest common denominator of American white trash. People who go out in booty shorts and flip flops with giant acrylic fingernails adhered to their finger tips so as to look classy. This place is a freak show. I never really liked Vegas. … Continue reading This Place Is So Weird

Somehow the guy tonight thought I was a “nice” dominatrix.  We agreed on … Continue reading Even the Perverts are Conservative

The Ess, My Trip to New England, and Another Shit Year in Sandy Eggo.

Recently I applied for admission into a PhD program in New England.  Because of the madness in my personal life I applied to only one, the one I wanted to get into.  I went to visit, spoke with professors, found a couple of them who said I could work for them, and made my application … Continue reading The Ess, My Trip to New England, and Another Shit Year in Sandy Eggo.

Sexual Anomie

The forced heteronormative expectations that we see in society foments in sexual culture, or rather in the void that represents sexual culture to us in the states.  We have a culture of silence, a culture that suggests that any sex is dangerous sex.  This anti-sex doctrine is being beaten into our youth through abstinence education … Continue reading Sexual Anomie

What Does A Woman Have To Do To Get Laid In This Town? — Leave Town?

“Young dumb and trying to get some.” That is what the stupid boy who was too old for me to date back when I was a wee lass used to say.  He said other brilliant things too like “if I bite you it will hurt.”  Needless to say, dating that older guy made me into … Continue reading What Does A Woman Have To Do To Get Laid In This Town? — Leave Town?
