    I interpreted the disparity in the living conditions between the coven and the voodoo practitioners as evidence that keeping a low profile looks very different for POC, especially in the South. Going unnoticed in a mansion works for the white folk, but not for an immortal voodoo queen. I get that. I think it speaks [...]

I readily admit that not everyone in the world is gender-identifiable in the few seconds during which I might casually think [...]

    An interesting piece for sure, definitely got me thinking…. but I had to stop and wonder at the “this isn’t about bodies” bit. Sex is, and will be for the foreseeable future, about bodies. We have them and they are a big part of what we use to make sex happen. We act as if [...]
