Disclaimer: This blog serves no purpose other than to document the things that make me smile.
This blog isn't about me, per se, and therefore there is a minimum of personal information and a maximum of webcomics and cute animals.
On the other hand, this blog will give you a deeper glimpse into my soul than any single conversation ever could.
On that note: Enjoy.
Warning of what lies ahead: Homestuck, Community, A Song of Ice and Fire, Sherlock, Harry Potter, Politics, Art, Civil Rights, whatever currently strikes my fancy.

Freud was coked up most of his life and people were still like “THIS MANS A GENIUS! I’M GONNA CONTINUE HIS RESEARCH!”
Look at how poor female survivors of sex trafficking are treated: 45 out of 50 states refuse to expunge/vacate our prostitution arrest records, which employers then use to deny us chances for jobs. Lawmakers know that this holds us back from being able to get ANY job at all so we can rebuild our lives and emotionally heal, and get on our feet to support ourselves - thanks to Welfare Reform, there is NO adequate economic safety net for unemployable destitute, marginalized women.
This is what pimps mean when they tell their victims, “Once a whore, always a whore.” Pimps KNOW that society has allowed poor throw-away women and girls NO OTHER PLACE except the gutter and an early grave (life expectancy rate for poor sex trafficking survivors in the US is 34 yrs old), and that those of us who survived and escaped prostitution by sheer luck are NOT treated very nicely by everybody else.
