On a blind spot of the spectrumby ArenaCommerce Collaborator
Words are undeniably powerful. So much so, that when there is not a word for something, we might be led to believe that such a thing does not exist. This is perhaps why when describing my sexuality to my friends, I would say, “Men and women are the same to me. Not because I feel […]
Clout Does Not Make You a Feministby ArenaCommerce Collaborator
Trump and Slumflower What do Trump and the Slumflower have in common? Due to the platforms they hold, they have become poster children for social issues that far exceed their understanding. They are both majorly under-qualified to hold their respective positions and frequently misinform their fellow ignorant men and the naive. Take Sumflower discussing “feminism” […]

The False Narrative of Social Mobility and the “Come Up”by Dan Bennett
Social mobility and the “come up” is often glorified as a dramatic, earth shattering experience in which an individual ascends to a status that their peers can only dream of.
