So I am sitting here in Starbucks
illegally downloading movies on piratebay enjoying my iced coconut milk caramel macchiato this fine Sunday morning and felt a crazy wave of frustration come over me. If you are my FB friend you have seen spurts of these in the last month… they are usually 4 sentence long with some form of witty wordplay to protect my non-POC friends from being uncomfortable.
Because you know making non-POC people feel comfortable is the responsibility of every “good black person” to combat the scariness of those angry radical ones…
Sigh…. I am angry. I am still angry. I am angry that a week ago (the night after the Dallas shooting) I was in genuine fear for my life. Continue reading I Don’t Want to Be a Hashtag…

Let Us Know That You’re Coming
So I was having this conversation with a friend, AP, yesterday and I thought I would write a bit about it here.
I am not sure whether you have heard or not, but there is a debate surrounding high school senior, Nattaphon Wangyot, a transgender student, winning all-state honors in girls’ track and field. You can see the video and read more of the particulars here but you guys are smart enough to know what the question is.
Is it fair for a transgender woman to be competing with a CIS woman in sports?
Yeah I know I should have started blogging about something less controversial… like stem cell research or the 2016 election. Continue reading Well… Hmm : Transgender Athletes — Fair or Nah?
Hola Lovebugs (or the the lovebugs who haven’t left me for greener blog pastures)!
I know it has been a while since I blogged, I would go into the sordid details… but not in this post. Just suffice it to say that… NOPE NOPE not this post
But just know I am back, still black and still a lover of the lady parts!
What prompted me to get back on the e-mic? Three syllables Bar-Bay-Dos

Okay so maybe this isn’t the super gay movie of the week… or the month… or maybe even the year but this is indeed the first Super Gay Movie in a very long damn time.
Now before I go into the actual review I blame myself and Netflix for watching this movie.
See what had happened was I was working on my journals last night and I needed some distraction. So I said “Hey let me watch a lezzie movie on Netflix.” I searched lesbian movie and for some reason this was the only one that came up. There was a hot ethnic (yes I said ethnic) woman on the poster… so I was sold.
Yeah… I know that’s what I get.
Now watching: Ambrosia directed By Baharak Saeid Monir
