A Plea For Help

Hey all.  I know it’s been a long time since I posted here, and a large part of that was the chaos that was my job at the adult store.  I was often working 50+ hours a week, sometimes as many as 60, and I was always on call.  I was constantly exhausted, but I never forgot about my blog here.  Well, today I have good news and bad news.  The good news is that I no longer have that job, which I was miserable at.  The bad news is, I haven’t found another job yet, and my money has run out.  I would love to come back to blogging here regularly, but right now, I’m more worried about if I’m going to even have a home after Halloween.  As such, I’ve converted my surgery fund into more of a “help me not be homeless” fund.    The link for it can be found here, and if I do raise enough money to help me last the next month, I will definitely come back to blogging here at least once a week.

If everything works out there, I’m thinking of creating a KickStarter to try and raise enough money to allow me to become a full time blogger, writing every day, and maybe even work on creating a YouTube channel or finally getting my podcast, The Safe Word, off the ground.  Those are all dreams for now though, and I am definitely in survival mode.  Any help you all can offer would be appreciated.  Thank you.

(Hopefully) Temporary Absence

Hey folks. Sorry I’ve been absent for the past few weeks (though I guess you’ve come to expect it from me by now). My laptop is totally dead, won’t recognize that it’s plugged in and charge. So, until I can fix/replace it, posting from me is going to be a lot more sporadic. Even today’s non-post is being done on my roomie’s desktop amidst doing homework. Hopefully things will be working again soon.

Quiet Day

Butterfly WomanHey folks.  No real update today.  Had an exhausting session in therapy yesterday, and my neighborhood is triggering my PTSD a lot with fireworks and actual gunfire.  I love the irony of us celebrating a holiday based on the fight for our independence via means of tiny explosions which trigger PTSD in our combat veterans.  Also, I’m busy working on my midterm essay for class, and all of my remaining energy is directed at that.  I’ll be back next week, with more in-depth analyses of video games.  I’m even considering doing a two-parter next week, comparing two games (or one game compared to a series of games) that are in many ways polar opposites, and yet both uphold some form of feminist ideals.  Until then, stay safe.

A New Series: Feminist Perspectives on Media

Butterfly WomanHey all. Just writing a quick note here to let you all know that starting Monday, I’ll begin writing a weekly series on here where I take a feminist perspective to some of my guilty pleasure games, shows, and films. I’ll not only show where they fail, but I’ll also show where they excel. Some of them will surprise you when I bring up some of the feminist aspects, as two I can think of off the top of my head are widely regarded as being misogynistic. I personally disagree, and we’ll see soon how it goes. So look forward to a new post on Monday morning!

Absence and Sickness

Hey all. As you may have noticed, I’ve been a bit absent of late. part of that is because I’ve been really really sick, part of it is due to finals coming up and all of the big projects. I do however have something in the works for here, a nice big project with some educational aspects of our history, and it should be up by Friday or maybe next Tuesday. In the meantime, enjoy this picture I drew for a project in my women’s studies class.

The End Result of Societal Stereotypes of Trans People as Deceivers

I used the 2004 TDoR Webcomics Project comics from Misfile (Chris Hazelton) and Venus Envy (Erin Lindsey) as the basis for my work, and the individuals in it are my partners.
