Bloody Vaginas Are Funny, So Laugh!

Bloody Vaginas Are Funny, So Laugh!

Humans are funny. I don’t mean that we have such fantastic senses of humor and can find something to laugh at in every situation, since a lot of people can’t. I mean, the physicality of humans is hysterical. That’s why farts make children, and some of us grown-ups as well, laugh; that’s why toilet humor […]

Our Dystopian Realities

Our Dystopian Realities

PHOTO: Rachael of Bladerunner Humans have as much of an adoration with the destruction of ourselves as we do for the success of ourselves. It goes beyond the fascination that people have for things such as zombie movies or post-apocalyptic worlds. To us, those can be very fascinating because they render us animals; it brings […]

A Modest Proposal On Rape Prevention (NSFW)

In 1729, Jonathan Swift wrote a satirical piece to answer the question of mass starvation in British occupied Ireland, suggesting Irish couples eat their children since there seemed to be no other solution aside from the British no longer controlling them: “I am assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London; that […]

Drones Aren’t Just Used In War

Drones Aren’t Just Used In War

Drone is an fairly innocuous word. It is often used to describe something or someone being boring, droning on and on, or a low, constant noise. The word becomes more loaded in other contexts though. Drone in the military context has never been an innocent word. Used historically to refer to soldiers considered disposable, the […]

PLAYLIST: Veronica Dee’s Psychedelic Trip

Drugs make us listen to all kinds of music. Some is really good and some you can’t really get into unless you’re on drugs. I don’t have any set playlist for when I’m on psychedelics but I have found a favorite to listen to in an odd way. When I was eighteen, I took a […]
