I’m So Vain, I Bet You Think My Selfie Is For Attention

When are we going to stop shaming people for liking themselves? Since middle school, I’ve struggled with my self-image to a debilitating degree. That was when I remember noticing that school felt less like education and more like a cut-throat beauty pageant…

Financial Aid

Fundraiser By Kae Hardin

Kae Hardin is a black, nonbinary trans survivor of domestic violence from Portland, Oregon. After escaping an abusive relationship, it has been a difficult adjustment for her to live independently, as it usually is for survivors. To make matters worse, she was recently let go from her job. Since becoming unemployed she’s had to face several unexpected financial burdens. Last month, her beloved cat became sick. Around the same time she, unfortunately, became the victim of…

so that one day
a hundred years from now
another sister will not have to
dry her tears wondering
where in history
she lost her voice.

New Music

On July 17th, Julie Koenig debuted her long-anticipated first studio album, Renaissance Woman. The work is captivatingly bold and passionate with the perfect blend of both vulnerable and excitable moments. My favorite song on the album, Little Moth, follows the devastating account of a small creature who is drawn into an alluring yet perilous glow. In a recent Facebook post about the release of this single, Julie reveals, “It’s written from the perspective of a woman who has recently left an abusive relationship, and is watching another woman take her place.” Stream Little Moth through the Spotify link above and you can listen to Julie’s full album here.

Attention lovers of Poetry!!
Skeleton Trees is one of the most powerful collections of poetry I’ve ever read. TJ articulates the vulnerability of longing and the constant heartbreak that comes with emotional abuse. Her authenticity shines through the rawness of her emotions. I’m especially grateful to the author because during one of my darkest times, her words inspired me to write about my own traumatic experiences. As cliché as it may sound, I remember I read it all in one sitting because I just couldn’t put it down. Do yourself a favor and check it out on Amazon!

More From Me 🙂

Watch NOW

“Intersectionality states that all oppression and all privilege is interconnected so we can’t really understand sexism without understanding racism or ableism or classism..”

Watch NOW

“Because men’s sexual attention is always supposed to be flattering. Regardless of whether or not those feelings are reciprocated.”

Even when this behavior is meant to be seen as creepy or wrong, the people behind the camera still take the opportunity to sexualize the female characters. This is an issue with many depictions of rape and sexual assault as well. Even if the male character is the villain or portrayed as evil, the violence is depicted in a way that still allows for the titillation of the viewer.

Eternal Book Club

This candid collection of heartbreaking stories reflects rape culture in our modern society that refuses to die down despite #metoo. “Not that bad” is a phrase all survivors understand, because we’re socialized to minimize our pain in the name of patriarchy. It’s taken me years to finish this book because of how raw and grueling these essays are. I’ve taken the necessary space between chapters to process and collect my thoughts. The book is an important read for everyone, woman, man, survivor, or not. Everyone needs to be aware of our culture’s responsibility for creating victims. It is time to hold ourselves accountable for how we contribute to the trauma.


Laura Fox really hit the nail on the head with this piece. Couldn’t have said it better myself! Give it a read, and check out the rest of her work on Medium.

Awareness and Accountability


I am doing the best I can. When I fake a smile. When I fool you with false confidence. When I feign self-belief just to manifest it into the eventual truth — someday. I am doing the best I can. When I contradict myself. When I calculate and manipulate. When I’m cynical of every detail…

Mental Health

Calm and Center

I live in a speck of a town on the edge of a state so vast I often forget we are minuscule. I’m not quite the big fish I expected I’d be as I gawk between walls of stone masterpiece trickling with wide- not small- rivers- not ponds- or gaze at the living room window…


“Write Something Happy”

I have been writing about pop culture, and media for over a year now, but have only ever dabbled in politics. Opinion pieces and cultural critiques are right in the sweet spot of my comfort zone and I’ve been camping out there for quite some…


Fall in Love with Yourself: A Letter to Me at 22

Dear 22-year-old Alex, I know you don’t think so, but there are so many reasons to love you that have nothing to do with your mile-long legs or the sparkle of your eager eyes. Your endless enthusiasm combined with your head-turning audacity are what make…

Trauma and Abuse

Identifying a Gaslighter

Gaslighting is the act of manipulation using psychological efforts to make a person question their own sanity and reality. The behavior ranges from toxic communication to severe emotional abuse, depending on how frequent it is. It is a tactic used by abusers, control freaks AND ordinary people. Understandably, most…
