Comment of The Fucking Year

Comment of The Fucking Year

The Wendy Williams breast feeding article produced some trolls. I’ve noticed people have ignored them, but I’m so happy it didn’t happen this time.

Here’s the link:

A baby isn’t eating a nutritious meal from your dick.

Uplifting News: U.S. Veterans Act As Human Shields For The North Dakota Protesters.

Uplifting News: U.S. Veterans Act As Human Shields For The North Dakota Protesters.

Yes, this protest is still happening amid the bullshit water cannons being sprayed at them in freezing temperatures. Over 2,000 U.S. military veterans came to create a human barrier between the protesters and law enforcement.

Erick Lizandro Marroquin, one of the Veterans Standing for Standing Rock members, told RT America’s Ed Schultz that they acknowledge the risks of coming into conflict...

Do You Like Books? Here Are Some Recommendations by Googer That Shit (aka RedWriter)

Do You Like Books? Here Are Some Recommendations by Googer That Shit (aka RedWriter)

Thank you to Rooo for this suggestion.

Grad school is reading and writing and writing and reading. I’ve been mostly happy with the selection so here is my list of summer reading (and feel free to add to it):

1. The Incendiaries by R.O. Kwon
Synopsis: A powerful, darkly glittering novel of violence, love, faith, and loss, as a young woman at an elite American university is drawn into a cult’s acts...

Updates and All That

Updates and All That

I have been AWOL! I’m so sorry! Things are just fucking great with me and if feels like all the stars are aligning in my life.

I just started third semester in my program, still planning on graduating next June but will be taking an extra semester to do some post-graduate work which means I’ll just be working on my manuscript and nothing else (for this semester, I have a 15-20 page critical...

Film Theory: Zootopia Tells The Story Of How The Government Destroyed Black Communities.

Film Theory: Zootopia Tells The Story Of How The Government Destroyed Black Communities.

If you’re not familiar with TheFilmTheroist on youtube, it’s a channel that does in-depth theories about films and shows but they back up their claims with science and evidence (for an example, there’s a film theory about how Mr. Smith from “The Matrix” is actually The One and not Neo and it has some solid evidence for why.)

I wanted to share the “Zooptopia” film theory because we talked about...

Two Weeks of Hell But Cancer Free!

Two Weeks of Hell But Cancer Free!

Alright. Biopsies aren’t that bad but waiting for the fucking results will certainly take years off your life. I was supposed to get the results last Wednesday, then it would be another day or two, then Monday for sure, then yesterday happens and my doctor is in surgery all day so it will be today. I’m afraid I lost my shit on whoever answered the phone yesterday and probably another twenty...

RedWriter's Hair Journey, Part 3: Desert Hair

RedWriter's Hair Journey, Part 3: Desert Hair

It’s time for another update. Fuck it, I’m wearing braids. Here’s why:

Because I’m crazy (or rather in love, which is the same) I will be moving to the desert to live with my boyfriend. For those of you that don’t know, the desert sometimes gets really hot, and it’s not great wig weather.

Like I’ve said before , my hair soaks up moisture like there’s no tomorrow so I’m constantly greasing and...

RedWriter's Hair Journey: Part 2

Hello all!

I know it's been a while since I last posted my hair journey (or just posted) but I thought I'd piggyback off of MizJenkins , who is kind of doing the same to Flawless . Also, everyone encourage Raineyb1013 to start doing a biweekly hair post!

Tales From The Bartender: Four Horsemen Edition

Hello all! I’m fresh off of a horrible cold and pretty high on Municex and DayQuil, but this is a very special edition of TFTB that I have share. Like a four horsemen shot, it’s full of harsh components, but you get the desired effect.

For the past few months I have had some major problems with my cock of a kitchen manager though problems with the KM have spawned since he started working...

Health Update: Part Two

Health Update: Part Two

Within a few days after I told all y’all that I was doing significantly better, more shit went down. It starting to get into the “possibly serious” territory so here’s another update:

The last thing I wrote was on imaginaryfriend’s post about books and like, literally the next day, I woke up with a giant-ass swollen neck paired with some borderline debilitating pain. Best way I can describe it...

Stranger Things: Maya Hawke!

Stranger Things: Maya Hawke!

I watched the fifth episode last night and noticed her name and then it all connected. She heavily favors Uma! I was trying to figure out who Maya reminded me because she’s one of my favorite things about this season. I can’t believe I’m so old that I remember seeing pictures of Uma’s post-baby body after she had Maya 20 fucking years ago.

RedWriter's Weekend: Dealing With Bullshit Due to a Friend.

RedWriter's Weekend: Dealing With Bullshit Due to a Friend.

This is long.

I have a friend (call him Andrew) who is very irresponsible in his life. Like, irresponsible in the way a lot of 20 year olds are but it’s not cute or funny because he’s 35. He’s also the type of person who doesn’t date; he meets a girl, hangs out with her twice and then a week or two later, they’re declaring their love on Facebook. His last girlfriend was ten years younger than...

"It's Time to Stop Talking to White People About Racism."

"It's Time to Stop Talking to White People About Racism."

This is an opinion piece by Zack Linly of the Washington Post. It is, so, so, so, good, with lines like this one:

“I understand that white people are mad. They’ve gone their whole lives being the default for social and cultural normalcy and never really had to think critically about race at all. Now a black first lady addresses the nation, and she talks about slavery. Now social media...

*This will not be limited to only black parents or the community. I’m black, my family is black, so these are my experiences. However, any person of color is free and welcome to join in. Discussion is encouraged.
