Raise your hand. How many of you have been assaulted or raped by men?

7 out of 10 of you?

70% of you have been physically assaulted, molested or raped by men?

YES. And that's not just this group, that's my cousin's group too, and endless other groups of friends who are 70% assaulted, molested or raped by men. Who are we? We are (predominantly white) women who grew up in wealthy towns/areas and around successful, educated people.

By stating that it's NO BIG DEAL to physically assault, molest or rape women, this "president" has demonstrated that it doesn't matter. He says it doesn't mean anything, that it's locker room talk. 

To anyone who has accidentally stumbled on this blog, wake up.
70% of the women I know, including me, have been physically assaulted, molested or raped by men.

What if it was 70% of men?

Today on (Un)Real Estate News...

This is a 1400 sq. ft. duplex in Oakland, California that is on the market for $500k. No joke.

Dear Flint, I'm so sorry. --not the government

Much Ado About Everything

Make no joke about it; we as humans are seriously fucked if Tr**p wins the presidency. Did I use asterisks on the wrong word? No, I did not.

Isn't it possible there's at least one person in the Justice Department who will resist turning over important proof of the ever-famous emails and their new best friend, the other emails, because they don't want their family's faces to melt a-la-Nazi in Spielberg's Indiana Jones? Except post-Nuclear bomb detonation?

Choosing this new Nazi leader WILL KILL EVERYBODY with just a finger and a button.

Why is this woman smiling?

Kim Gordon, who I absolutely adore and look up to, may have the most permanent resting bitch face ever.

Which makes this image half amazing.

And half not-amazing (Tevas???????).

Kill The Witch

It's not like I didn't know he was horrible, but I watched Donald Trump on tv last night for approximately 4 seconds before I became filled with an emotion I can't identify. Leaving the room was like a fight or flight event.

A great sadness is in me this morning. Oh, god, I really don't think he can win this election, but what if he did? Oh, god. The emotional's an indicator. I hate him when I see his face, and am completely and utterly filled with bile when I hear his voice.

I hate him more than Dubya. Oh, god.

Let's just put him here. I want to dump him here.

Take Care

Because of the current world we live in, I'd like to encourage all people who have the means, to look out for those who don't. Like handing out a few dollars to the guy standing (or sitting in a wheelchair) at the end of the off-ramp. Like buying lunch for the family standing on the corner—mom in a wheelchair, dad, two young boys—along with your own. This means tipping 20% plus a few extra dollars, because when will you miss a few extra dollars? But that waiter/waitress/delivery person will feel empowered and gain faith in the world when you do. Isn't that a small price to pay for more faith existing in the world?

People have to help people. Our government will never get around to it. And they can't, not enough. It's up to us regular people who have jobs and a little bit to spare.

Just do it.

I give thanks for having a job that gives me a home and food.
I give thanks for a body that's pretty fucked up, but can still hold down that job.

This post is written in honor of my grandparents who taught me to care for people in need. I give thanks for them, up there in heaven where all the angels live.

Boiling Point

Literature boils with the madcap careers of writers brought to the edge by the demands of living on their nerves, wringing out their memories and their nightmares to extract meaning, truth, beauty.
--Herbert Gold

I see you

don't miss a thang, y'all!
