Words can both reflect and affect our viewpoints. So I’m concerned to notice several hard right-wing talking points popping up in my social circles. I think all of us can be more vigilant against this infiltration. We can also more quickly recognize anecdotes that aren’t representative of the larger reality.

Yes, I once favored “flat tax” proposals. But that was before I did the math. Simply put, a flat tax version of the income tax would brutally punish the poor and be a bonanza for the wealthy.

The anthology Dangerous Women was an enjoyable read, covering quite a few styles and genres. More than half of the 21 short stories were written by women. My primary disappointment was that several of them didn't meet the book's stated criteria: to present fictional women beyond the common tropes of love interest, victim, side character, or villian.

I identify as non-binary; more specifically: agender. This entry explains that and more.

The warmer the Earth gets, the sillier it’s going to seem to keep using “the sun shining” as a metaphor for good times and “clouds” as a metaphor for sadness or anger.

Go ahead and picture heads exploding as my wife and I heard these words yesterday: "Only white people are allowed to eat here." No, it's not what you think, but it's almost worse.

I’m glad I read Frankenstein directly after Dracula. The contrast between the quality of writing was incredible to me. Frankenstein is the far superior book in my opinion. Its central message also has, I think, more relevance in modern times.

For me, the only surprise in Kavanaugh's nomination was that it wasn't someone worse.

While it’s true that calls from the right to “be more civil” are inherently hypocritical, I still think it’s a good idea to remain civil — on most occasions. However, I acknowledge that desperate times call for desperate measures.
