Guest Column: Tyranny of the majority

But until all of this is changed, you should remember to vote in the upcoming local election on November 5th. The Woman Suffrage Movement and the Civil Rights Movement did not fight for universal suffrage for you to stay away from the voting booth, and you should care about exercising that right.

Column: Rebuttal

Column: LGBTQ+ people are resilient as hell

Column: Self-care is not self-indulgent

Self-care is more than spa days and expensive skincare routines. In reality, the definition of self-care is remarkably fluid. It’s whatever you want or need it to be, and it doesn’t have to cost anything at all.

Guest Column: Hate, not heritage

"As a Black man, I personally use the number of Confederate flags displayed as a barometer for my own safety when traveling the American South. The more I see, the sooner I know to get out of Dodge."
