I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.

When the only person you’ve wanted to commit to in the last 5 plus years tells you that like him, you don’t commit to anything, even though you’ve met other men and dated them to varying degrees of success but unfortunately haven’t met anyone who really does it for you on all of the levels you need things done, it brings up feelings you may not be prepared for. If you’re me.

Look, I love fruit as much as any other person who loves fruit. But this?

ABOMINATION.

You know that thing where you have a dream in which your (dead) mom is trying her damndest to convince you to go out with a guy you’ve known since kindergarten, and you’re all in a house that you don’t recognize and while your mom is with that dude in another room upstairs you’re chilling with his sister, who is also trying to convince you to go out with him, then he comes downstairs and you two are talking and you agree to go out with him, kiss him on the cheek and go to leave but then realize he still has the same face and haircut from elementary school, then you try to get out the front door and his dad (who is NOT his dad because you know his dad) is on the stoop blocking your exit until you kiss HIM on the cheek and then you wake up at 4:15 that morning? I know it well.

An odd bit of trivia about the passing of Lauren Bacall on Tuesday: As Marci Robin pointed out on Twitter, all 16 of the 20th-century stars immortalized in Madonna’s “Vogue” are now dead.

The group’s beliefs are treated so respectfully that you’ll understand why Hodaya’s friends refuse that wine, even if you’re watching TV on your computer on a Friday night while eating bacon. Religion is not something they are trying to get out of. They are not trying to sneak one past God. You don’t have to share their faith to understand exactly how important it is to the characters.

Want to read this so bad - just watched S2E1 last night and am terrified of spoilers!
