Do you enjoy my posts? Are you meh about them but want to support an analytical and entertaining blogger anyway? 

I am physically disabled, with titanium spine bits, which means not much activity and lots of chronic pain. Right now, I channel that pain as much as possible into my mission - to comb various media for important social justice issues and present them in an intersectional and digestible way. My goal is to improve access to information to those who don't have the time and energy to stay political, while instilling hope by promoting the power of educated citizenry. 

On Facebook, this translates to plain-language commentary on content curated from vulnerable and minority communities. 

On Tumblr, I use my degree in Linguistics to link current events and their intersections with language and power, language and identity, semiotics, prejudice, oppression, and other variations in communication and social justice. 

My abilities are limited by the time I can devote to these pieces, and my time is limited by poverty while I wait (probably a few years) for a disability pension. If you believe in supporting intellectual pursuits aimed for the masses, or funding access and resources for a disabled American as our legal and financial protections are being swept away, please give what you can!
