this blog is dedicated to the thoughts sprung forth by incidences of frustration and anger with dominant society [aka capitalism, white/male/heterosexual privilege, colonization, a perpetuation of the Other, etc.]. It is also dedicated to moments of deeply personal reflections as I am a firm proponent of "the personal is political." The personal intimations of other feminist writers have greatly affected my own life, thus creating the imperative within me to continue this tradition. the purpose of this blog is to spread awareness, raise consciousness and hopefully invite people into critical discussions of race, gender, hegemony, capitalism, sexuality and any other category that serves to benefit one by exploiting many. I aim to break free from the dangerous dichotomous debates we find ourselves in today. Most importantly, I write out of a deep love for my community and a genuine hope that we can continually make this world a better place for everyone. I write sharp indictments of those I feel are worthy of the criticism, but I do so not from a place of hate, but out of the belief that privilege at the cost of others undermines the beneficiary as well as the oppressed.
