So, I have a question: what do women think about dating a man who just happens to be have some slight homosexual tendencies?
I'm just asking because if there seems to be anything I have learned about black people from YouTube is that some of them are hella conservative. Everywhere you turn, there is someone talking about interracial dating, about…Continue
So, last night I had been thinking about a couple of things while I was trying to get to sleep. One of them having to do with the rape situation Afro-Punk had posted, one having to do with a Tori Amos tune NME had introduced me into, and another having to do with a conversation I have had with other women friends. I had this really sudden realization that most of you are probably going to be like "well, duh!"
Anyway, the realization is that the real shock has less to do with what a…Continue

Honey Larochelle creates the kind of music where the funk drives into your soul and before you know it, you are rocking your whole body with your stank face on! Honey has been performing ever since she was 5 years old and was practically raised in soul and rock music with her mother who has sung with Marvin Gaye, Bryan Adams and Bon Jovi. It's easy to see that Honey's "Stankface Music" is a genre that was long in the making. After years of singing lead for The Brand New…Continue
Jangly indiepop can be a dangerous proposition. There's a fine balance between personal weirdness (we used to call it quirk, but Zoe Deschanel ruined that word forever. Thanks a lot.) and traditional pop songwriting. The wrong balance can leave you sounding twee, phony, or just hopelessly unapproachable to anyone other than jangle purists. But there's little better than when someone nails that balance. Madame So's new EP “Sell-by Date” hits all the right notes. (Even the ones…Continue

A person plays a lot of many roles in his or her life. Playing roles in the society is an everyday goal in personal situations. I am writing about my everyday roles as how I am a good daughter, a college student, a cousin and a visual artist.
Being a daughter is a gift for a mother. I am working very hard to be a good daughter to my mother, who is having problems at her job and telling me about her day in her job at home. Also, she tells stories about my grandmother past. Every…Continue

Good news for fans of hard rock/folk/blues band Earl Greyhound! (to the unconverted: I'm worried about you. Are you OK?) It's been two years since Earl Greyhound's 2nd full length Suspicious Package, but the intrepid trio are back. Sort of. They're re-releasing their first recordings from 2003 on vinyl. The 4 song EP Besides Seasides is out today and definitely worth picking…Continue

We came across this article on GLAAD.org so we had to share it with you.
REMEMBERING HOMELESS YOUTH DURING THE HOLIDAYS
As families across the country gather to celebrate the holidays, it’s important to remember the many people, particularly LGBTQ-identified youth, who are without a permanent home or family simply because of who they are and love.
In fact, a census conducted by the Empire State Coalition and released by the New York City Council in 2008, found…
From the WTF department: Police in Swaziland ban women from wearing clothes that "encourage rape". More info below.
But really, beyond Swaziland, isn't time to stop blaming rape on the person who gets raped? Time to freaking get real. Whatever you wear or whatever you did is not an excuse for someone to rape you or for any other unethical behavior.
However, one reader stated on the…

America has about 5% of the world’s population but 25% of the prisoner population, the highest number of guns per capita in the world and in this land of the free you are about 20 times more likely to get shot than in any other developed country. Think it’s odd that the country with seemingly the most criminals would also have the most guns, and then that these gun owners would shoot more people?
One of the biggest conversations we will have in America in these last few days…

Merry Christmas all. As a Christmas treat I thought I'd bring you the 12 Best Solange Knowles outfits of 2012. I think everyone would agree that besides one or two outfits, Solange Knowles was one of, if not the Best dressed woman of 2012. Not only did she stay on trend, but she stuck to her master skills of pattern mixing, showed some leg and wore her natural hair (and some protective styles) out loud and proud.
I bring you The 12 Best Solange Knowles outfits of…
