Anita’s Most Memorable Media of 2017
Every new year I say to myself, “Self, keep track of the media you love this year so when December rolls around you know exactly what to write about,” and every year, I don’t do it. This year is no different. Trying to come up with some of my favourites of the year often results in […]

I was horrified, furious, livid, angry, and sad; I actually didn’t even get through the whole video the first time I saw it.  The sexualized, eroticized, fetishized violence against women and sexist and racist stereotypes is nothing other then blatant misogyny and […]
