Yesterday, I was browsing Twitter and I saw an article on a racist attack against Asian-Americans. The day before, I saw a forum post about the most misogynistic things people have heard. It's a daily occurrence for me. Well, it's a daily thing for everyone. Hate crime is everywhere.

Scarlet Kitten: My Favorite Products Roundup
Recently, a friend of mine made the mistake of trying to buy me a cheap sex toy from Spencer’s as a gag gift. It wasn’t really that big a deal.
