Issue 5 of Fluffer Magazine is out which means my most recent column is out as well!Remember, a print copy is less than $35 and a digital copy is a steal at less than $6 and trust me, it's totally worth it. The work showcased in this magazine is phenomenal!
We’re now living in an age in which religion and politics can’t seem to exist without the other; a time when reading stories in the news about young women who were banned from dances or sent home from school because their shoulders were bare, or their dresses didn’t drape past their knees is normal, a time in which the rulers of social media dictate the acceptable parts of a female body and the shameful ones. We’re living in a time in which many grade schools are ignorantly choosing to teach abstinence (scratching their heads at the rising pregnancy and STD rate), a time in which the strides women made in the past century are under constant threat. We’re consistently being judged and schooled in the ways of a righteous and moral existence by men who keep mistresses, fuck gay male prostitutes and molest their little sisters, all while voting against laws that would give women, minorities and gays equal rights. It’s one classic case of do as I say, not as I do after another and the obvious and blatant hypocrisy is stomach-churning.
