Spring Cleaning: More Social Commentary

This post has apparently been sitting in my drafts folder for a while (it’s a couple of years old now, wordpress tells me). I’m not entirely sure that I recall what prompted it, but I thought I’d go ahead and post it; my guess is that I was in an angry and literally-in-pain-and-bleeding-black place in my life, and I don’t know that I’m necessarily ashamed of that at all. 768 more words
