In honor of the recent call for #HeterosexualPrideDay, I’ve compiled a list of ten benefits you, too, can enjoy from being heterosexual.

If you’re demanding special recognition for being heterosexual, you are reeeeeeeally not understanding the power and privilege that heterosexuals have relative to LGBTQ+ folks.

Don’t invent oppressions. There are plenty of real ones out there.

With the recent increase in folks’ throwing shade and swastikas on other people’s ethnicities, I thought I’d take a moment to remind us all that racial purity is as fictional as Draco Malfoy. Here are four reasons why race categories don’t mean what you think they do.

My latest guest post for The Horn Book's Family Reading blog!

"Even most grownups aren’t aware that there is no real biological basis to race, so explaining to children the logic and history behind how we divvy up the human race into groups and pretend that means something is not easy. Nor is explaining how we are still wrestling with racism and discrimination and injustice based on those culturally constructed racial categories.

Fortunately, there are hundreds of books that can help you explain the complex social and historical forces of race and racism.

These are not those books."

Here’s a quick guide to how to judge if your costume is culturally sensitive, or whether you need to dig out some cardboard from the basement and get to work on some sad, last-minute, duct-taped robot costume.

What I find most interesting, as a Highly Sensitive Person, and now as a parent of two Highly Sensitive Children, is how to survive in a culture that neither values nor accommodates high levels of sensitivity.

What I find most fascinating, as an anthropologist, is how differently sensitivity is experienced and valued from culture to culture.

It doesn’t have to be this hard.

Nothing stops a conversation about a social problem like a belief that there isn't a problem. Institutional racism isn't an issue of faith. It's a social crisis that demands our attention.

So tired of parents being judged when the real issue is mounting pressure and declining social support.
