This is simply one of the best articles I’ve ever read in my entire life.

It should be read by everyone, everywhere. 

Very few men talk publicly about men’s responsibility for rape and violence against women, both culturally and literally.

And when conversations about this subject are started by men, they often either miss salient points entirely or simply devolve into a shitshow of the same traps they attempt to address….that all rapists are recognizable monsters, that sexual assaults and violence are a “realistic” risk of some professions, that male-dominated society doesn’t significantly contribute to rape, that rape culture doesn’t really exist, that only poor, uneducated men beat their wives, etc.

Men who would never dream of groping, assaulting, raping, hitting or killing women are exactly the men who NEED to talk about violence against women. These are the men who can help greatly to instigate the change we need, particularly when it comes to male-dominated structures like laws and access to medical care and legal services that women either rely upon or are, too often, driven away from after they are raped or injured by men. 

It’s time to stop pretending that this is just a women’s issue. 


I will forgive the very subtle Toyota product placement for a video that is really all about what surfing means. Being part of the sea. Being part of the planet. And also, being FREE.

This reaffirms my hope that we aren’t just satellites, but are connected - to each other, to nature, to the world.  

It also says a lot about trust and being willing to believe other people are looking out for you and interested in helping you live your life.

My pensive little muffin face is 8 today! It seems like just yesterday he was a wee meerkat we stole from the zoo….Sigh. 

Happy Doggie Birthday Dance!

I would eat all of it for brunch, including the garnish. And perhaps the tray, had I not taken in enough roughage for the week.

Just a reminder….

When you see an article or hear someone talking about a sexual assault (or any kind of assault), please refrain from making a comment that is completely based on your own revenge fantasy or telling the victim how they “shoulda” reacted or how they should be dealing with it. Because, guess what? That makes the person you’re talking to or about feel like they didn’t do enough to stop what happened to them and that their experience is only valid if they did what YOU think they “shoulda” done. 

Also, how about not telling someone that “technically” they weren’t raped. That’s just a million facets of glimmering wrong. 

And while you’re at it, never say, “I’m just sayin.” 

Ever. :) 

Cool, now we can be friends. And I really need to stop looking at internet comments. Lowest comment denominator.
