    #NaNoSoMeMo 2017, or, Being On Social Media In 2017

    This is one of those posts that I keep starting and restarting, because I feel like the thing that I’m trying to express can easily be construed as another thing that I wholeheartedly disagree with, or an attack on people for whose work and effort I have nothing but admiration and gratitude. So I’ve decided […]

  • On Underage Marriage and Sexual Ethics

    Preface: Earlier this week I posted a rant to my private Facebook page about a retreat in Kansas for Christian parents to arrange marriages for their underage children. This retreat was being hosted by Let Them Marry, an organization that promotes teen marriages and describes “youths” (people under 20) as being ready for marriage when they’ve developed “all forms […]

  • 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 […]

  • My Top 10 Posts of 2014

    Welcome to my obligatory year-in-review post! As of the precise moment in time that I’m writing this post, these were my 10 most-viewed posts of 2014. A couple of these, including #1, weren’t even written this year. It’s encouraging to know that my posts have staying power, considering I usually write about pop culture and internet culture, which […]

  • How I Met Your Avatar: The Legend of Korra Series Finale

    SPOILER Warning: This blog post is all about the Legend of Korra series finale and is full of SPOILERS. Don’t read this post if you don’t want SPOILERS. Here’s something else you can read – my fangirly post that I wrote in anticipation of Season 3. Okay, so. If you’ve been anywhere near Tumblr this […]

  • 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. I kept putting it off because I knew once I got started, I’d want to watch the whole thing in one sitting. I was right. First, a little background on the source material. Carmilla is a […]

  • Buy An Ebook, Help a Disabled Kid

    Quick version: The royalties for all Thalia’s Musings ebooks sold between 3/1/14 and 4/1/14 will be donated to World Vision’s Child and Family Health Fund. Want to know why? Keep reading. UPDATE: World Vision has reversed its new hiring policy because of pressure from their financial supporters. I’m still making this donation because (1) everything I said […]

  • You Are Better Than Fred Phelps (and that’s why he was so dangerous)

    I’ve been around some pretty extreme religious types in my life. You know those rhetorical arguments about modern Christians not really taking the Bible literally because they don’t see a cotton/poly blend as a sin? I’ve known Christians who believed wearing a cotton/poly blend is a sin. Yet, not once in my life have I […]

  • So, Yeah, I’ve Been Watching the Olympics All Week

    OMG I freakin’ love the Winter Olympics! Seriously. I like the Summer Olympics, but I love the Winter Olympics. I have a long-standing crush on Apolo Anton Ohno, who isn’t really even my type aside from being an Olympian named Apolo. Jamie Sale and David Pelletier’s medal controversy is the first thing that comes to […]

  • Open Letter to my Future Spouse

    Dear ____________, I don’t know your name yet. I don’t know anything about you. I don’t even know if you identify as a woman, a man, or both, or neither. I don’t know if I’ll be the first bisexual person you date. I don’t know if, at this point in time, dating a bi woman […]
