[NSFW] You Made Me Gay

Living in San Francisco, it seems antiquated to think so many homosexual men and women are still in the closet. Our city prides itself in street festivals full of wrinkly old men walking around with their balls strangled in cock rings for all to see, admire and stare at in awkward confusion. We live in an amazing city, but […]

Women, Stop Hating Other Women

The term “Uncle Tom” is an old term still used today to describe members of the Black community who disregard their own people and culture to conform to majority-white culture.
