To Vote, or not to Vote: that is the question…

“I want freedom from taxation!” If you’ve ever been to America (or various other countries) you’ve probably heard someone say this, either in person or on the radio. And, many people who say this, actually mean it. Until they don’t; such as when their house catches...

Who Do You Know That Is At Risk?

Who Do You Know That Is At Risk?

While driving along the Hood Canal, I stopped in at a sweet cafe, and a few minutes later a car pulled up. It had white-supremacist and hate-focused words written across the windows and sides of the car. The white couple (with kids) looked disempowered and angry, the...

The Role of Men in Ending Misogyny

The Role of Men in Ending Misogyny

I want to share what I hope will be a SUCCESSFUL reply to the first man who (with all the good intentions in the world) jumped up and “mansplained” how my essay, Stop Mansplaining and Start Listening, got it all wrong. Why am I sharing this? Because we don’t succeed...

So, this morning…I’m exploring pedagogy. Why? My friend and upcoming radio guest, Four Arrows, just shared a video of his recent presentation at UBC’s Department of Curriculum & Pedagogy. And…I was amazed at the name of the department. I...

How Dare You Ignore Cosby’s Crimes?

How Dare You Ignore Cosby’s Crimes?

To the MEN who want to talk about racism, rather than America’s Patriarchy-based Rape Culture that results in 33% of America’s women enduring this horrific experience (once or repeatedly) in their lifetime…just stop. It is really pissing me off that...

#WhyIDidntReport

#WhyIDidntReport   When I was 18, I worked at a restaurant. Every day, my boss would make crass jokes whenever a female employee was bending down, near him, to do something. “Eh-hm, while you’re down there…” (Leering smile at whoever was nearby...
