If people really want to help veterans, hijacking us for socially ignorant memes and transparent political talking points do NOT = actual support. Many of us have homelessness, emotional and mental traumas, long-term physical injuries, employment barriers and other issues you can actually DO SOMETHING to lessen or alleviate. Hating on Jenner or other […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I usually posted the hate mail that I received at The Multiracial Activist. People would lose their shit when they saw their ignorance on full display. I was careful to scrub email addresses and would remove last names, UNLESS threats or nasty slurs were used. Then, it was game on with your bad self. As […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
So, right-wing Victim of the Gay Agenda Ryan Sorba recently spammed me with more of his questionable “reporting” in order to spread his homophobic hate message.

I find rape apologists and victim-blamers fascinating and absurd. I've been engaging in a heated discussion on one of my favorite discussion lists. A poster shared a story about a woman who'd been gang-raped. The rapists taunted her for being a lesbian and then attacked her. While the poster says he does not […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I've had my ass kicked online, mocked, taunted and told I was to blame for being raped so much this week I can't tell friend from foe anymore. I spent most of Monday in panic attacks after reading the venomous comments at PJM and on Roy Edroso's childish little blog. I did not expect to […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
