He Tried It!
The video above?! Just a little promo video... you should check it out! Back to the reason you're here. Sexual harassment is not funny. I know that. You know that. Everybody with sense knows that (well, maybe not so much according to the news). No is no. If you're trying to get with somebody and they don't want to get with you, then you need to leave them the fuck alone, period. Why am I bringing this up you ask? Well... I was sitting around, thinking about what to blog about and scrolling throu...

A New Day Is on the Horizon
Last night I heard a speech that was so brilliant, so powerful, so game-changing, it reminded me of other history making speeches given by the likes of Churchill, Kennedy and King. The difference? This one was given by a woman. When my daughter was just a few months old, I remember holding her in my arms with tears quietly running down my face - expressed not out of overwhelming happiness, but out of overwhelming fear. I had no idea how to protect or prepare this perfect, beautiful, completely i...
