Photog Feature: Swiger Photography

Since starting this blog in 2012, I have had the honor of shooting with some seriously talented local-to-me photographers. Some are old friends, some are newer pals, but the one thing that they have in common is their love for photography and their incredible eye. (And the fact that they're generally amazing people!) I met… Continue reading Photog Feature: Swiger Photography

Gift Guides Galore: Masculine Fancy

The turkey's been and gone, leftovers are packed into the fridge, and the dishwasher is rinsing off the last of the Thanksgiving remnants. I'm pleasantly stuffed with homemade mashed potatoes and cheesecake, and it's finally finally time to start talking about (a few of) my favorite thing(s!): Christmas. Holiday wishlists have been swirling through the Blogosphere for… Continue reading Gift Guides Galore: Masculine Fancy

Redefining Sexy: Not Just For The Boys

Scarlet Johansson. Beyonce. Megan Fox. What do these ladies have in common?Besides all sharing celebrity status and raking in boatloads of cash each year, I think it can be universally agreed upon that each of these three ladies bear the traits of the conventionally sexy. They are long legged and svelte, with pouty lips and… Continue reading Redefining Sexy: Not Just For The Boys

“The Second Mango” (Interview With The Author)

Today, I'm taking a break from blogging boobs, bras, and body image to discuss another topic that I love: books. And something I love more than just books? Queer, feminist, fantasy books. So, color me surprised when the lovely Shira Glassman dropped a line in my inbox, informing me that she had written just that.… Continue reading “The Second Mango” (Interview With The Author)

The “New” Normal

You should have seen her face. You should have seen her face when I leaned in for that kiss. Panic. Fear. Involuntarily, her whole body shifted as far away from mine as she could get within the confines of the tiny red car that she drives. She didn't say anything at first, but her actions… Continue reading The “New” Normal

Unless you've just now crawled out from the cave you've been hiding in for a few weeks, you've probably heard that recently, the United States Supreme Court has ruled both Section 3 of the Defense Of Marriage Act and California's Proposition 8 as unconstitutional. As a member of the LGBT community, I am rejoicing in… Continue reading An Open Letter

I Want To See You Be Brave

Sara Bareilles just released a new song and video from her upcoming album, entitled "Brave". It encourages the listener to be brave, speak up for what they believe in, and to not let fear control their lives. (I think this is awesome. Ten thousand brownie points for Sara Bareilles!) As I was driving to work,… Continue reading I Want To See You Be Brave

Expanding On “Real”

I recently ranted quite a bit about the concept of "Real Women". It quickly became one of my most-viewed posts, and after it hit the fan, it got me to thinking. You see, if you've been following my blog, you'll know that I'm a lesbian. A member of the LGBT community, if you will. And… Continue reading Expanding On “Real”

“I Do!” (Not Tolerate Bigots)

Marriage Equality For me, the subject of Marriage Equality is a hot-button issue. Maybe I missed the window for this discussion, and it's not "hip" anymore to change your profile picture to a little red "=" and talk about how all human beings deserve equal rights. Regardless, that was then and this is now, and… Continue reading “I Do!” (Not Tolerate Bigots)
