My seven-year-old is obsessed with My Little Pony, as many children and adults are. For Halloween, she wants to be Twilight Sparkle but also a witch. So, I ordered her a Twilight Sparkle costume and got her a witch hat. She was so delighted at the costume reveal that she gave me a TED Talk … Continue reading The Myth of the Pegasus
There are some people that find a great deal of joy in cleaning their homes. I am not one of those people. I would much rather curl up in a hammock with a book than spend even half an hour doing basic upkeep that any child could master. That being said, I love a good … Continue reading A Broom Is For Sweeping
When I was a little girl, I got in trouble with my school library for checking out D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths so often that no one else got a chance to read it. Oops.

I love Twitter, probably too much. I've been feeling very indecisive about what to blog, but Twitter polls helped significantly. So, today, I am going to write another feminist rant about a popular fairytale. I want to go further than that, though, because feminism isn't feminism if it isn't intersectional.
