  • The March Family Letters: Little 21st Century Women

    I was eight years old the first time I read Little Women. I fell in love with the Marches and identified with all four sisters in different ways. I was a writer and loved adventure and couldn’t manage to do what was expected of me like Jo. I was the oldest and could be too cautious and […]

  • So, I finally binge-watched Carmilla

    This was supposed to be my Halloween post. I’ve actually gotten a few requests to review this literary vlog series.

Since then, progressive Christian blogger and author John Shore has partnered with Savage to launch The NALT Christians project. I feel like Savage has addressed […]

  • Hey, Dan Savage – I’m Not Like That, And Neither Are Our Conservative Allies

    Update: On 9/4/13, I wrote this follow-up post in response to Savage and John Shore launching the NALT Christians Project. I do support the NALT Christians Project, which addressed a lot of my concerns regarding Savage’s original challenge at its launch.  I have such mixed feelings about Dan Savage. I love the It Gets Better […]
