I Need To Get Something Off My Chest

I find Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) incredibly attractive. Like movie star/fashion model attractive. I actually think she’s better looking than many of the actors and models that are famous for being good looking. It’s weird and it makes me uncomfortable. Harris has been elected Vice President of the United States and I can’t help but be […]

Kim Ng

After my last post, it feel nice to have some good baseball news. The Miami Marlins have hired Kim Ng as their general manager. She is the first woman to hold the position, not just in baseball, but in any of the major North American men’s sports. It’s a big deal, and great to see. […]

The Bare Minimum

A few months ago, I had an interesting interaction on the dating site OkCupid. This woman’s pictures were nice and her write-up made her seem promising, so I liked her and sent her a note. It wasn’t anything special, but she responded. We exchanged a few messages. It was the usual small talk. Then, she […]

Philosophy Phridays – Feminist Metaphysics

Philosophy Phridays is a series where each Friday, I go to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, click on “random entry,” and then write about whatever comes up. This week’s random entry is Feminist Metaphysics. Metaphysics, broadly speaking, is the study of what exists, what those existent things are like, and how they came to exist. […]

Regression to the Mean

Have you ever been embarrassed while sitting in a room by yourself? A few years ago, I had just finished downloading a game called Skullgirls. I’ve been a fan of fighting videogames and the fighting game community (abbreviated as the FGC)  for a long time, and the idea of a game created by community member Mike […]

One More Try

For some reason, many (not all) people are either unable or unwilling to see the sexism being directed at Hillary Clinton this primary season.  I know I’ve been going on about this, but I thought I’d give it one more try.  But, this time I’m going to go about it differently.  I’m going to provide […]

City Rats and Sexism

There are rats in New York City.  That probably doesn’t surprise anyone.  In fact, there are lots and lots of rats.  Estimates range from 2-10 million rats.  Even on the low end, 2 million rats is a lot of rats.  There are also people in New York City.  This, again, probably doesn’t surprise anyone.  In […]

Jessica Jones and Sex Scenes

For anyone who doesn’t know, Jessica Jones is a Marvel Comics hero.  She is not your typical superhero.  She has super powers, but when she tried the hero thing, it didn’t go so great.  So, now she is a PI.  It gives a different slant to the whole superhero theme. Netflix recently released season one […]

Derek Jeter Is the Cover Model for the 2015 SI Swimsuit Issue

The title of this piece is not accurate.  Hannah Davis is the cover model for the 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.  But every single headline I saw lead with Derek Jeter, look at Yahoo!, CBS Detroit, and the Huffington Post.  In other news, Pierre Curie’s wife won the 1903 Nobel Prize for Physics.  Oh, and […]
