    5 Warning Signs that You Might be in an Emotionally Abusive Situation

    Not every abusive relationship will look the same. Each unique dynamic will manifest its own challenges. Regardless of the specifics, it will take advocating for yourself in order to break some of these cycles.

    GXRL Talks Sex with Lavinia CEO Katie Enright

    An orgasm is so beneficial for our mind, body, and soul. It changes the relationship we have with ourselves and our partners. It creates confidence, both in the bedroom but also in everyday life. That's why at Lavinia, our motto is "Live Life to the Climax." We hope this product will encourage everyone to have a better, more climactic life.

    Child Custody in the Time of Pandemia

    I am still raw from the March 13th sting when we, terrified by a novel virus, canceled classes at the high school where I teach -- where my youngest attends -- and floored it home without a backward glance, locked ourselves up tightly, and refused to open for friend and stranger both. I forced smiles for all the kids in my care, "What an adventure!" it said. We got this. I got this.

    Simply Insignificant

    Lately, I have been feeling a bit small. There are so many BIG concerns in the world right now that my life feels ... well ... unimportant.

    Musician/Artist Kelly Fleek on Living Your Truth, Successful Queer & Creative Partnerships, and Kicking Doors Down

    Kelly Fleek is a Spider Fern Maven (the Spider Ferns are her band). A Lo Flux babe (Lo Flux Media is her PR company). A storyteller. And a maker of things who is into witchy shizz.

    She’s currently working on a new full length album for The Spider Ferns, creating a new series of hand knit wearable sculptures and a line of textiles and home interiors based on elements from her paintings, reclaiming an acre of land that she’d allowed to grow over during years of being a touring musician, and building a retreat for musicians and artists on her property north of Seattle.  

    We discuss successful queer and creative partnerships, living your truth, and kicking doors down.

    Takeaways

    1. Work hard to trust yourself.
    2. Believe in what you’re doing despite what other people say.
    3. Continue on despite what you hear.
    4. Don’t assume people who are judging your art or music know what they are talking about.
    5. If you believe in yourself, you will continue to open doors.
    6. Kick doors down.   
    7. Accept people for who they are.

      BONUS: Love is punk!
