About Capital Injustice

There are things I take sides about, like capital punishment, which it seems to me there is only one side about: it is evil. But there are two or three sides to sexual harassment, and the moment you get into particular cases, there is injustice in every conceivable direction. It's a mess.

Almost Other Tell

As a little girl, I didn't like stories about little girls.
