The gays are up to their shenanigans again, and I am living. Lil Nas X is in what Christians, self-proclaimed spiritualists (but really just Christians with extra steps), and weird people on Twitter would probably call hot water after the release of his new music video “Montero (Call Me By…


Before we even get two sentences deep into this article, I’m just going to go ahead and call Robert Aaron Long’s attack what it is: a hate crime. Period. For me, and the law according to Georgia’s statutes, it is, in fact, a hate crime. A crime that is first…

Notice, how I didn’t say you can’t say it? Also, full disclosure, I don’t really use the word. If we’re being honest, the word in the title is literally only to elicit a biological (and possibly even) physical…


Spike, I forgive you, but I’m pissed off that I do
