Pop Goes the Grrrl: Commencement by J. Courtney Sullivan

So, 3 years ago, I set up a blog to crit/discuss/review/whatever pop culture stuff I consume through a feminist lens. I finally wrote something on it for the first time tonight. It’s not good, but it’s just stretching my thinking/writing muscles before I tackle something else.

I just started Spring Break this week, and I’ve been looking forward to spending the week catching up on reading. I set my goal this year as 50 books, and while I think it’s attainable, Goodreads tells me I’m 8 books behind where I need to be. That’s ok, because I make up for it when I overdose…

I find it really important to reward myself at the checkout at Central Market. Otherwise I could never talk myself into the indignity of grocery shopping.

Please support me as I bowl for reproductive rights! There is no choice without access!

Even $10 can make the difference in someone’s life. Please help, share, tweet, etc! This is the Lilith Fund's biggest fundraiser each year, and it allows us to provide gap funding to low income Texans who need abortions. Given that our legislature and governor (I think you've heard of him) have already said they're intent on putting more restrictions in place until abortion in Texas is a thing of the past. These restrictions unfairly burden low-income citizens who can't afford to take extra time off work, some times travel hundreds of miles, travel costs, childcare costs, and more. If you'd be the kind of person who would help out a friend who needed an abortion, be the kind of person who would help out strangers that need you right now and don't have friends or family that can help them enough to help them overcome those barriers.
