What is the role of suffering in all of this? What do you make of speciesism? Animals should be treated with theContinue reading “Speciesism and animal rights”
Holy Vaccine Response, Batman
Many of you knew I got two doses of the Pfizer Covid vaccine in early 2021 and that the second dose kicked my butt.

Curl Care Series Part 4: Where do we start with products?
I have always maintained that the beautiful and terrible thing about home hair care is that there’s more than one right option.
