Shopping Woes

So as some of you know I am trans. Unfortunately for me that means I'm a very, VERY petite man. And by petite I don't mean weight wise I'm talking like shoe size being a womans 5 (which I believe is either a 4 or 3 in mens), my hands are small as hell so I can't even hold a wine glass elegantly with one hand without dropping it, and clothes, of course, don't fit me right because I'm pre surgery. And on top of that, they don't really make mens clothes for the short fat guys. They do make mens… Continue

Being Incorrect in a Politically Correct Society

Political correctness is killing this country. Since when, as Americans did we obtain this right to NOT be offended. Now, I'm not suggesting that its ok to go out and attempt to be hateful/hurtful and try to offend people. However, it seems that now adays (is that even a real word?), you only have the right to free speech so long as what you say doesn't offend ANYONE. Further than that, its almost as if you don't have the right to any opinion unless that opinion is a "progressive"…

5 Reasons to Go Hunting

Hunting can indeed be a spiritual experience. There is much more to hunting than going out to get a buck. Hunting is about bonding, about tradition, about being out in the nature and learning to survive. It is a fantastic activity to clear your mind and experience truly bringing food to the table in contrast to having it constantly served to you by markets, restaurants and fast food vendors. The beauty of it starts with preparation, stalking, actual hunting and preparing the food which is…

What do people really think of Karva Chauth?

Married Indian men are showing their dedication to their wives by stating that they are willing to fast for their wife to celebrate and share the experience together. These results were concluded from a survey coinciding with Karva Chauth, a time when Hindu women in north India fast for their husband’s lengthy life.
