I explained to him I couldn’t spend the night, but that I was just a half mile down the road, and wouldn’t leave Long Beach until it was with him. I told him I’d be back in the morning, and the next morning and the next, until his brain chemistry was balanced enough for the doctors to release him.

“I’ll be here as long as you’re here,” I repeated.

He teared up and smiled. “That’s really good to know,” he said.

Why Are We So Afraid of Female Breasts?

July 25, 2016 at 8:44 pm

The taboo against female breasts and nipples is sexist, discriminatory and promotes rape culture

beachvoyeur_57026460 255 (1)I was tanning at a topless beach in France when I first realized how ashamed I was of my breasts. One of my best friends – a French exchange student I was visiting after our high school graduation – and her French mother were lying next to me bare-chested without a second thought about it.

There were men in Speedos and women of all shapes, sizes and ages walking around in nothing but bikini bottoms all around me. Some of the women were young with small, perky breasts; some were old and leathered with breasts that hung down to their belly buttons, flat as pancakes; and some had such perfectly round, bouncy breasts, I felt embarrassed to look at them. But the one thing they all had in common was an air of something between self-confidence and indifference.

A 14-year-old rape victim opted to keep her baby. Her grandmother and grandfather (a retired police officer) – her legal guardians – promised to help raise it. But the authorities in Birmingham, Alabama had other plans for the “illegitimate,” half-black child, who, in their eyes, was the perfect candidate for foster care.

The teen mother had a natural birth and was successfully breastfeeding when CPS came into her hospital room and kidnapped her 3-day-old son with ZERO explanation:

Stay-At-Home Motherhood Might Be the Loneliest Job on Earth

July 8, 2016 at 2:29 am




Asked how many hours of adult interaction they got per week – not including their spouses – one in four stay-at-home moms said ZERO. The isolation of modern motherhood is driving more and more of us to figure out how to recreate the tribe

7146065The vast majority of stay-at-home moms surveyed in Facebook moms’ groups say they get little-to-no interaction with adults other than their spouses and grocery store clerks on a weekly basis.

Of the 52 moms who responded, nearly 90 percent said they had no local family or friends (other than paid babysitters) – to help them raise their children.

Nearly half (46 percent) said they spent an hour a week or less in the presence of other adults, and more than 80 percent said they spent less than five.

The average amount of time spent interacting with other adults (including grocery store clerks, gas station attendants, mailmen, waving neighbors, and strangers at parks) was just under 3 hours per week.

Whole Foods Teams Up With Monsanto to Kill GMO Labeling Bill

July 3, 2016 at 11:48 pm




Whole Foods, Organic Valley and Stoneyfield have teamed up with Monsanto and Dupont to nullify Vermont’s new GMO labeling law that now requires companies to disclose the genetically engineered ingredients hiding in nearly 75 percent of processed foods in this country.

Food Democracy Now reported last week that the self-described “organic companies” have brokered a last-minute backroom deal with the “devil” food giants that guts a national GMO labeling bill and overturns Vermont’s new state law.

Thanks to Vermont’s historic legislation, which went into effect July 1, many major food companies like Campbell’s, General Mills, Pepsi, Nestle and Smucker’s have already started labeling their products as “partially produced with genetic engineering.”

How Prison Labor is the New American Slavery and Most of Us Unknowingly Support it

June 13, 2016 at 11:58 pm

If you buy products or services from any of the 50 companies listed below (and you likely do), you are supporting modern American slavery





prisonAmerican slavery was technically abolished in 1865, but a loophole in the 13th Amendment has allowed it to continue “as a punishment for crimes” well into the 21st century. Not surprisingly, corporations have lobbied for a broader and broader definition of “crime” in the last 150 years. As a result, there are more (mostly dark-skinned) people performing mandatory, essentially unpaid, hard labor in America today than there were in 1830.

Kombucha Made Easy

June 3, 2016 at 7:47 pm




IMG_1884-768x1028One taste of the sparkling, fruity, super elixir and I was hooked. It was fizzy and refreshing like champagne, but loaded with good bacteria, enzymes, vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin B 12, which my then vegan body was starving for. It gave me a burst of energy (not the jittery caffeine kind) and mental clarity, and helped me digest my food and cleanse my body.

“Zoochosis” Documentary Claims “Zoos Drive Animals Insane”

June 2, 2016 at 9:54 pm

Born Free Foundation calls for ramping up wildlife conservation and the permanent phasing out of zoos




980x-18 (dragged)Lots of the “cute” things animals do in the zoo – like elephants “dancing” or bears walking around in circles – are actually signs they are losing their minds. They are bored, frustrated, lonely and desperate, and their compulsive, repetitive behaviors are an attempt to cope.

“Zoochosis” is a term used to describe the compulsive, repetitive and sometimes self-destructive behaviors exhibited by bored, frustrated wild animals locked in zoos.

Endangered Gorilla Wouldn’t Be Dead if Zoos Didn’t Exist

June 1, 2016 at 8:00 pm

It’s not the parents’ fault, it’s not the zookeepers’ fault and it’s definitely not the gorilla’s fault he was killed – it’s our entire culture’s fault for condoning wild animal captivity




harambe-1A member of a critically endangered species of gorilla was shot to death at the Cincinnati Zoo Saturday after a 4-year-old boy fell into his “enclosure.”

Civilization is Inherently Unsustainable

Documentary calls for dismantling civilization before it’s “too late”

CIV4_SS4Making a case against civilization is about as tough as making a case against agriculture, primarily because most people don’t even know what the word means.

I know this because I’ve tested the theory out. A cashier at Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago was complaining about being tired and poor and having to work all the time. At the end of his rant, I shook my head empathetically and said – “civilization sucks.” He responded with the same confused look most people do when I start talking about agriculture or civilization.
