Listen up, Boo. Sometimes it takes muppets and the C-word to really get the message across: Your pap smear is important.

If you’re due for one, we can help you get the most out of your well-woman visit.


that’s the motto

It’s not often I post as a person, like a real, flesh-and-blood person.

Tumblr is a spot where I barf out snippets of important and profound things, and one resounding theme is feminism, and an especially important subsect: sexual health and education.

So, naturally, Paul and I are organizing a rag-tag team of geniuses to compete in the Spelling Bee for Cheaters, benefiting Family Tree Clinic!

Family Tree Clinic is a St. Paul based organization promoting Sexual and Reproductive health for all! They have an amazing list of services, from their Healthy Beginnings Program to their Community Education, benefiting our community in a vast array of meaningful ways.

In case the sparkle of my previous 1st Place WIN of the Drinking Spelling Bee at the 331 Club has already worn off, we’re pretty smart over here, and we have a decent chance of bringing home the gold! Every dollar that you pledge gives us an edge over the competition. We can buy clues like letter hints, or even go as far as stinging the competition by forcing them to take on a crazy-difficult word, or even making them spell it backwards.

The more money we raise, the more good (or devious) work we can do!

Please consider supporting our campaign at


Thank you for being on our side, and most of all for supporting the amazing work of Family Tree Clinic! If you are not able to contribute financially, please consider sharing our campaign with your networks so that more people can learn about this remarkable organization.

Sincerely Yours in Spelling,


If you learn to really sit with loneliness and embrace it for the gift that it is…an opportunity to get to know YOU, to learn how strong you really are, to depend on no one but YOU for your happiness…you will realize that a little loneliness goes a LONG way in creating a richer, deeper, more vibrant and colorful YOU.

In the United States, access to tampons and pads for low-income women is a real problem, too: food stamps don’t cover feminine hygiene products, so some women resort to selling their food stamps in order to pay for “luxuries” like tampons. Women in prison often don’t have access to sanitary products at all, and the high cost of a product that half the population needs multiple times a day, every month for approximately 30 years, is simply, well, bullshit.

A brilliant metaphor


(via lipstick-feminists)

You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you — it’s something inherent. You exist, and therefore, you matter. You’re allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You’re allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You’re allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you’re allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise.
