Found myself a bit more angry than I thought, so here's another one with a bit more fervor...

Same deal, buy one and I donate $1 to Planned Parenthood.

The House voted to strip Planned Parenthood of federal funding today. Hopefully the Senate doesn't feel the same way.

When you buy this button I'll donate $1 to Planned Parenthood.

POC (Person of Color)
POC (Person of Color)

As a mixed-race POC I've found it occasionally necessary to assert that I am indeed a POC to people who had their own ideas about how I identify, which can be quite annoying.

technology will not save us from our own stupidity
I get a little annoyed when people justify messed-up short-term energy policy (or lots of other things) by stating that they're hoping for a technological breakthrough in the near future. That's akin to hoping to win the lotto to pay for next month's rent, and then sitting back and doing nothing but buying a ticket.

I wasn't socialized properly
Someone once said this to me while talking about herself and I was taken aback -- not because I thought it odd or wrong, but because it seemed like such a deeply honest admission. I almost think that only a person who really wasn't socialized properly could actually utter those words, to jump over that vast tarry pit of social stigma as if it wasn't there, because for them, it wasn't. Then I slowly realized that in describing herself she had also described me, what I had long held hidden away in my own self-doubt. Somewhat isolated in my youth by parenting and my multiracialness, my innate shyness had only grown, and I often found it difficult to interact with people with the same easy grace as seemingly everyone else.

At the same time, who *is* socialized properly?

Some of my favorite Americans are Canadian
Canadians are Americans too! Somehow the US has taken over "Americans" so it means just us (or we expect it to), leaving South Americans and Central Americans and the other North Americans glaring at us angrily (not that we aren't used to most of the world glaring at us a bit).


Thank you for not stating the bloody obvious
A mild deterrent, if you will, for the people who think themselves terribly clever for coming up to you and blurting out what you rather they didn't.

I absolutely love this quote by the amazing Alice Walker.

invest in yourself and your friends, not in faceless corporations
 I don't believe in the grinder of investing in stocks for profit. I think if you're going to invest, you should invest guided by your ideals, and the best people to invest in are the people you hold dear.
