I was born male. I have all of the requisite parts and pieces, fringe and accessories, that make me a biological male. Not one time in my whole life have I ever questioned my gender (or which gender I was sexually attracted to – another post for another day). I don’t understand how anyone could […]
In my childhood and youthful days, I know that I told racist and sexist jokes, used words and slurs about black and female classmates and strangers, judged people very harshly based entirely on their skin tone, gender, and faith. In my (very few) college years, I know for sure I drank (and smoked pot and […]
I know, first hand, someone who bought an expensive mutt – sorry – “doodle” then decided to make her life easier by buying a dog vest from Amazon that said her dog is a service dog just so she can take her dog anywhere and everywhere. Let’s make this clear up front – this is […]

Because of him I am one of those assholes that will correct a your/you’re/yore or there/their/they’re post. But this post isn’t really about that. It is about the misuse of some rather important […]
I’m on the internet a lot – a whole lot. Like — all day a lot. I read a lot of stuff on the internet – from articles about best practices for organic search optimization, to how to get big budget photos with low budget gear, to the latest news from the Middle East, to […]
What exactly does the 3rd of the 10 Commandments mean when it says, “You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain”? When I was growing up I was taught that meant “don’t cuss”. “God damn” is, I was taught, taking God’s name in vain. That phrase seems to still be […]
