Dismantling Oppressive Shit

I would like to invite you to visit my “Dismantling Oppressive Shit” page. I have recently updated it to include Quick Links to five distinct video collections on various topics meant to raise awareness and galvanize action towards equality for marginalized people.

Bonus Inauguration Day Content

I felt inspired to create this video this morning. I wore red, white, and blue today, with great pride, which is something I don’t think I have ever done with intention as an adult. I feel proud to be an American today, and I am hopeful that we have turned a corner as a nation, with the inauguration of President Biden and Vice President Harris, and the removal of 45. Enjoy!

Defining R^p3

The social medias really do not want me to share this information, but I believe it is vital to victims’—to survivors’—recovery from sexual trauma. Had I access to this information when I was 16, I may have ended my relationship with my abuser much sooner. I may have mitigated some of the traumatic impact of that relationship. Had I access to this information at 20, I may have begun to recover from the trauma then (rather than in my 30s), because I’d have had language to articulate my experiences, and it is only through the external articulation of trauma that we find healing.

An Impotent Talisman

When gripped by terror and anxious ruminations regarding the risk of my automotive travels, mom settled on what she deemed the only solution. Were my mom’s intent to actually protect her child, as opposed to simply mollify her own disquiet, perhaps, she’d have considered other options.

The Elephant in the Dance Studio

You can listen to the third episode of my new podcast, Surviving the Shit, by clicking above. TRIGGER WARNING: this one regards eating disorders. I analyze my own experience through a psychoanalytic lens, within the context of my growing awareness of autism and my life experience as a human on the spectrum.

Clearly Cathartic

A psychoanalytic reading of any work of art can permissibly disregard the creator’s intent in lieu of the message received by the audience. This is the approach I take in the following video, as I analyze the meaning of “No Light, No Light,” by Florence + the Machine, as it relates to my personal experience at this moment in time. Enjoy!
