Disclosures

Everything on this blog is my opinion (unless written by a guest author, in which case it will be their opinion, obviously). I am a very opinionated girl, and it’s entirely possible you may disagree with my opinion. That’s alright too.  This blog is likely to be liberally biased, but what can you do? I’m a pansexual person with a uterus and I kind of like being treated like a human being instead of a second class freak, lust object, or host for the spawning of more humans. It’s a bit of a thing, for me. You don’t have to read this blog if you don’t think queer women are humans. That’s your problem, not mine. If you do try to suggest I’m not human or shouldn’t be writing about being human, I may get a bit annoyed with you, bless your poor heart.

This blog accepts some minor forms of cash advertising and sponsorship or other forms of compensation, primarily through the Amazon Affiliate Program or Google Adsense, because I have cats that quite like eating food and food requires money. Should I review a product, movie, or book of some sort, I probably bought the thing myself, though my cats would point out that I should have bought them some tuna instead, because they are more important. Should I receive a product for free in exchange for a review (and I do like free stuff, please send me free stuff) I will disclose that in the relevant review, and my opinion on the product will be just that, and not influenced by the acquisition of the free thing. If I don’t like the free thing, I will say as much. If I love it, it will be because I really love it and not because it was free. If I quote something that the manufacturer or provider sent me, that should be verified with them, not me.

If I claim or appear to be expert on a certain topic or product or service area, I actually am. I’m not a dudebro, so I can admit when I don’t know a thing and there are a lot of things out there that I do not know. I do, however, know quite a lot about literature, writing, mental illness, and cats, which is probably mostly what I’m going to be writing about. I also know how to research other things so that I can gain some expertise in them. If I am ever factually wrong (note: this does not include differences of opinion, so sorry) I will happily issue corrections and retractions.

Comment Policy

I will remind commenters that Free Speech only means that the government can’t arrest you for what you say. As I am not the government, and as you are in my house, I reserve the right to throw you out if you get unruly.  So, I don’t have to listen to you call me a fat lesbian. (And really, folks, come up with some original insults? That one’s not even insulting, it’s just slightly inaccurate).

  • Comments deemed to be spam or solely promotional in nature will be deleted. Including a link to relevant content is permitted, but comments should be relevant to the post topic.
  • Comments including profanity will be edited and the profanity removed.
  • Comments containing language or concepts that could be deemed offensive will be deleted. Note this may include abusive, threatening, pornographic, offensive, misleading or libelous language.

The owner of this blog reserves the right to edit or delete any comments submitted to the blog without notice. This comment policy is subject to change at any time.

I can't remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you're saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it's not literally illegal to express.
