As an adult, I have struggled with words from my past. You see, I’m what you might call a little bit “extra,” and ever since I was a young tender I was told I was too much. Actually, the word “too” was always ever-present in my childhood. I was too extra, too feminine, too much and to this day it has always made me…

The federal investigative bureau branch of Twitter has struck again—and this time it involves our favorite hot girl.
With her latest project, Megan Thee Stallion officially ushered in summer and we’ve been jubilantly twerking ever since. With bop after bop, she’s giving us hits that bless not only our lives but our Instagram captions.
My America is single, without a president and currently trying to find itself, but there’s a man in the White House who is threatening the status of many that inhabit our “great” country.

Same-gender-loving men have been accused of trying to ruin the black family, and that’s a black-ass lie. Men who are part of the LGBTQ+ community are concerned with having the right to merely exist and to be treated as equals. As for an agenda? We do not, nor have we ever, had the time to come up with a plot to take…
