Privacy vs. Non-privacy...

Privacy and the right to privacy are important. And while I always want to have the right to privacy, sometimes, I'm more than glad to share who I am and what I like.

The reasons I want to share what I like, my shopping habits, etc. is that I'm not your typical person. My partner is a transwoman. Our kids are biracial. Showing who I am and the fact that I exist in this world is important to me. I'm a consumer, a voter and I matter. My opinion matters and companies that want to keep my business should recognize that!

So I'm glad to let the world track my footprint from time to time.

Books For Teens

I know it's been about forever that I've posted on my blog. I'm going to work on that. Really I am.

In the spirit of Christmas, I want to share a "cause" with you! It's Books for Teens which is sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). The mission is to provide high quality books to teens that really need them. Books can change a young person's life. They can help someone in a bad situation see that they are not alone and that there are solutions to problems that they face every day. Check out the site and give! It's the season!
