OP-ED: Oakland - A Portrait of Male Privilege and A Lesson on Self Worth

i. I am in Oakland competing for National Poetry Slam when I quickly realize this city is a car with its windows rolled and black leather seats...meaning it is really fucking hot. Here, it is too warm to dress comfortably...and by comfortably, I mean jeans, Nikes, a snapback, bomber, and long sleeved shirt. By comfortably, I mean "masculine". My body, an ocean of sweat, tries to calm the tide of itself - wears dresses, skirts, and crop tops instead *insert the male gaze here*By KiNG, AFROPUNK…See More

"Please do not ever give up on justice for Sandra Bland. I am a white 69 year old retired R.N. I know the area she was killed in--I believe killed--from the moment she was slammed  to the ground-said I cannot hear-she had brain damage. I worked…"

OP-ED: The Slippery Slope of Selling Yourself - How I Almost Landed in the Sex Industry

Posted on August 11, 2015 at 6:30am 0 Comments

We are at a restaurant in Santa Monica when he asks how much he owes me. “$200 for 30 minutes,” I say. I don’t remember his name, just his eyes and how they never blinked. Just everyone else’s eyes and how they never blinked too. I am 20 when a 57 year old white man is the highest bidder on one of those websites where you keep the male ego company over dinner while being fetishized all at once. Fools like me will think ourselves to be the ones in power because we do…
