I love the recent pushback against marketing princess and sweetness to little girls. I often wonder if I would have been a happier teen had there been more feminism in my childhood toys and interests. I  had a feminist mom, trailed after my older brother and sister playing outside, rode a bike, built with Legos, […]

empowered people, power to the people, personal choice, how to make smart choices

As women we must constantly fight for our health rights, among all our other rights. The state of Alabama is one of those terrible states that apparently dislikes women to have power over their health. Here are a few articles from the National Partnership for Women and Families.

His blog The Screen Life  revolves around film, TV, and internet and it has been acquired by the Huffington Post; that megasized internet newspaper created by Arianna Huffington. What […]

I’m supporting indie media that knows most everyone, especiallly us gringos who grew up in multi racial families, don’t want to see the same vanilla look and plot line in every show and movie.  I can look back and almost every movie I’ve loved […]

The United States of Corporations

I just watched a video about how pathetic marketing has become.  Now do you see why I am bored with mass media? It’s predictable, bland, obnoxious, but most of all, it’s FAKE.  I yearn for more in my entertainment so I consumed less for a while. I’d like to say I ended my consumption,  but […]
