Ambivalently Yours

I would like to introduce you to the hardest working artist on the internet and beyond, Ambivalently Yours. It is an anonymous project “created to facilitate the exploration of feminist convictions by embracing ambivalent emotions.” The project started in 2011 on Tumblr with a series of drawings that were just meant as a distraction from a mundane day job and eventually turned into something else when several of these drawings went viral. Ever since, the project has blossomed. There have been 6… Read More

Women Championing the #METOO Movement

CW: sexual harassment and assault  If you turn on the TV, pick up a newspaper old school-style, open a social media app or load a news site lately, you’re most likely going to see something about the many sexual harassment, assault and violence allegations that are coming to light. They’ve heightened in the media since the Harvey Weinstein allegations surfaced, but the real movement was started by Gretchen Carlson over a year ago. Now, allegations have some up against Louis… Read More

Pineapple Cure :: A Poem By Kelly Scanlan

Knife in hand, I start cutting into the prickly flesh of the pineapple that’s lived on my kitchen table for the better part of the week. Watching the blade uncover the speckled meat, my mind wanders to a scene over a decade ago, in a cold kitchen, knife against a similarly prickled specimen, under entirely different circumstances. We had gotten into a fight, again. It was in the parking lot of a Taco Bell in his aging pick-up truck after… Read More

Dream Phone :: Michael Small

Michael Small is a Toronto bassist who has been involved in music since his days with the high school band. He says he picked up the bass, basically, because he found the guitar to be too difficult to play and it was the least popular instrument among his pals, so he figured it would be pretty easy to find people to play with. One of the first gigs outside of high school turned out to be the band that he… Read More

Music :: Pony

On a cold November afternoon, back in 2017, I sludged through sleet and snow to meet up Sam Bielanski, who is front women to the  Toronto glitter rock band, Pony.  She is pretty much the cutest,  with a casual tee under a fitted black cotton spaghetti strap dress and leggings and sporadic minimalist tattoos of kittens and a crescent moon on her arm. We sit and say our hello’s to one another, immediately finding so much in common, from our… Read More


There were gasps, there were sobs… there were cheers and there were jeers. It doesn’t matter if you were from the U.S. coast or the bible belt or didn’t live in the U.S. at all –  you probably had a pointed reaction to the results of the 2016 election. The next day (9th November 2016) was a somber day for many. The night was different, however. Crowds bigger than the crowd for the inauguration gathered in many major U.S. cities… Read More

How Many Times Can We Say “Never Again”?

On the seasonally warm, sunny afternoon of Thursday, February 15th 2018, the only ruckus that could be heard in the halls of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was murmuring in class that caused interruptions. The students had their normal plans for after school: band practice, sports practice or studying. They were planning on having a normal day for a high schooler… until they didn’t. It was 2PM. They were probably waiting for the clock to tick and set them free… Read More

International Women’s Day :: Greatest Hits

I’ve been collecting female positive images and gifs off the internet for years and I thought that today, being International Women’s Day, would be a fantastic opportunity to showcase some of them for you.  When I was young.. like in elementary school.. in fact, even in high school.. International Women’s Day was not recognized something that we recognized. I didn’t even know that there was such a thing until I ventured out of the small Southern Ontario city I grew… Read More
