"Zach Wahls Speaks About Family"


This right here is the definition of a well raised man.  He is only 19 but he speaks well beyond his years.  He comes from a place of genuinity and compassion.  In my opinion, I think his statement "the sexual orientation of my parents has had ZERO effect on the content of my character" is false.  I think the fact the his parents are gay has made him a better human being.  And to overstand why I am saying this, you must first overstand what it is like to be judged and hated by most of the world.  To be the underdog and still smile takes strength.  To overcome hate and be beautiful takes courage.  To choose to go against society knowing the hardships it may bring, in the name of being who you are takes self-love.  So to say these two beautiful people being in love together standing strong in the face of adversity has had no effect on him has to be wrong.  His point is still clear though.
   
He has grown up with these two women who I believe, just from hearing him speak, are filled with love, compassion and kindness.  He seems like a man who cares about people and is kind to the world.  He is well-spoken, intelligent and couragous.  He doesnt seem the type to hate, judge and discriminate. He is clearly a better result than many of the people out there in this crazy world.  I think the world would be a better place if everyone who raised kids were like these people... and by these people I mean these kind, strong, compassionate, beautiful, couragous, loving, healthy minded people.

Degrees of Love

Love is deep, love is slow
like the sound of a piano

Love is raw, love is kind
like the pain of a tattoo

Love is lost, love is found
like the Gods of yesterdays

Love is me, love is you
sometimes its hard to differentiate the two

Love is my strength
to love me and to love you

But love is also my weakness
for in the light of love, I only do

Theres no reasoning with love in my world
in the face of life I hold on tight and continue

I only ever want the best, for me and for you
You know why, because I love you.

Be-YOU-tiful.


"A while back, at the entrance of a gym, there was a picture of a very thin and beautiful woman. The caption was "This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?"
The story goes, a woman (of clothing size unknown) answered the following way:

"Dear people, whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, seals, curious humans), they are sexually active and raise their children with great tenderness.They entertain like crazy with dolphins and eat lots of prawns. They swim all day and travel to fantastic places like Patagonia, the Barents Sea or the coral reefs of Polynesia. They sing incredibly well and sometimes even are on cds. They are impressive and dearly loved animals, which everyone defend and admires.

Mermaids do not exist.

But if they existed, they would line up to see a psychologist because of a problem of split personality: woman or fish? They would have no sex life and could not bear children. Yes, they would be lovely, but lonely and sad. And, who wants a girl that smells like fish by his side?

Without a doubt, I'd rather be a whale.

At a time when the media tells us that only thin is beautiful, I prefer to eat ice cream with my kids, to have dinner with my husband, to eat and drink and have fun with my friends.

We women, we gain weight because we accumulate so much wisdom and knowledge that there isn't enough space in our heads, and it spreads all over our bodies. We are not fat, we are greatly cultivated.
Every time I see my curves in the mirror, I tell myself: "How amazing am I ?! "

Sexuality. Part Uno.

When it comes to sexuality, naturally I have so many questions. Are you born a way and stay that way? Is it set in stone? Can your sexuality change over time or do you just realize it over time? Can you choose anything relating to sexuality? Are you born gay/lesbian? Can you ignore it? Can you choose it? Are societys teachings healthy or harmful? This topic has many different elements I would like to touch on, so bare with me while I try to keep shit organized.

I have a friend who is convinced you arent born gay, he thinks you are born straight but then due to some childhood event/trauma, you become homosexual.  This same friend also touched on the idea that IF we are born that was, maybe it is a deformity in our genes during growth. So basically saying, homosexuality is a birth defect.  As bad as it may sound, its plausible....not in the way of it being wrong, but jus the same way, women are born in mens bodies and vice versa.  Or just like some people are born different.

I have another friend who swears by the idea that sexuality is written in creation and it is what is... and always will be.  She thinks we are who we are from birth, we can choose to face it, deny it or embrace it.  There are many gay women in her family, which makes me think maybe it does have something to do with genetics?! But what do I really know about genetics right?  Right.  Moving right along..

I happen to know for a fact that there are millions of gay men out there that would give up their dicks to be straight. So many men who dont want to be gay, wish they werent and hate themselves becuase of it - so that makes me think you dont get to choose or change it. Otherwise people would just mould themselves to fit the social groups they want to be apart of, rather than finding the people who fit with them naturally.  So many religions and cultures condemn homosexuality to be a sin/worst possible life.  And yet, millions of Christian, Jamaican men are born gay everyday.  So is it fair we all agree we dont get to choose your sexuality?
With that being said, I am going to continue with some shit that happened today, that "bothered me" lets say.... A friend, on facebook, added a pic of her close friend sleeping half naked in bed with a caption saying something like "this is what I get to cuddle with everyday."  Now thats cool, a bit invasive to the privacy of the half naked sleeping friend, but thats not my business.  The caption was even cool, shes proud and thats dope.  However, she then posted a tweet/status that said "Lesbian is so in right now" !!!! WTF?!?!?!?!?!?  I mean this has been gwanin in the city for awhile now (like years, shes way behind) the whole lesbian trend, girls on girls, society supports it more now, almost everyone likes it (even most straight women are oddly cool with two women together).  The "black lesbian community" is LARGE in the city of Toronto and I think thats fuckin DOPE.
But whatever happened to just being who we truly are?! We used to hide our homosexual thoughts because of society, now we are advertising and fakin the funk for social status and attention?? Alot of girls will say they like girls but would never ever put their tongue on a clit.....so what do you like about girls?? Oh thats right, the attention (FROM MEN no less....SMH.)

I would like to end this post with a simple (yet ruffling) statement. I think most women like women but we also like men so we just do as were told by society and date men.  Perhaps somewhere in the last ten years, women have gotten fed up with the cheating, disrepctful BS, ignoring, lack of compassion, emtional emptiness, etc etc etc etc; even the good men are lame to some sort of womenly need.  Somewhere in there, we clued in (or finally gave in to a sort of last resort) and realized women have almost everything that men have to offer plus more (minus the pulsing and growing inside you, but a strap on will still hit that spot!)  All of sudden, ALL of our needs are met...some that men didnt even know exsisted....some that we never thought wed get fulfilled.  Its almost like we as women have dumbed down our needs to meet the capabilities of men.  We pick our needs like we pick our battles; only the most important and most demanding get the right attention at the right time. In a nutshell - the dick isnt worth the headache and heartbreak.

Goodbye construction season 2011, hello winter. #Toronto

Belief in karma ought to make the life pure, strong, serene, and glad. Only our own deeds can hinder us; only our own will can fetter us. Once let men recognize this truth, and the hour of their liberation has struck. Nature cannot enslave the soul that by wisdom has gained power and uses both in love. - Annie Besant

A tribute to Jack Layton. RIP (July 18, 1955-Aug 22, 2011)

As of today, Jack Layton has passed away after his long battle with cancer. Leaving behind his beautiful, strong, courageous wife Olivia Chow.  Huge condolences go out to his wife and their family. They are a beautiful family and beautiful people. I wish them all the strength and love in the world to get through this hard time. Toronto ♥'s YOU.

Who is Jack Layton to you? Besides my city's (Toronto) NDP Leader for 8 years, he was a role model for society and a friend to many.  To me personally, he was the man I voted for, had much respect for and the only person in politics I believed in.  I felt better about Canadian politics knowing he was apart of it.

An exert from his final letter, to Young Canadians: "I believe in you. Your energy, your vision, your passion for justice are exactly what this country needs today. You need to be at the heart of our economy, our political life, and our plans for the present and the future."
"My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world."  RIP Jack Layton.

"I make being strong look easy, but it is not."

Sometimes I feel like an alien living amongst humans....or maybe I am the human and half of y'all are aliens. Sometimes I feel like I am speaking English to people and its like they are hearing Chinese..... like everything I say goes right over their head. Now the truth remains to be seen, I could be crazy or I could make so much sense, it evens make my own head spin sometimes.

I seem to always be in some kind of emotional pain yet I always appear happy to people (or so people say). I know everything in my life has happened for a specific reason or purpose, that I am exactly who I am meant to be.....and even further, I am EXCITED to see who I will grow into in the future. I have faith in the Universe. (Like some people have faith in God, its all the same to me. When I reference "the universe" or "energy," I am referring to the higher power. I believe God is energy, that lives within us and surrounds us.) And I also, have faith in myself, to make the right choices, to be strong enough to make those tough choices and follow through with them....and ultimately to trust my intuition and follow my heart.  Life is easier said then done but PLEASE BELIEVE I practice what I preach.... (Key word: Practice, not perform.)

Sometimes I wonder about the readers of this blog, something tells me its more haters than lovers. For the simple reason as it is the only form of viral communication expressed through me that is open to the public, so its not surprising that it could become an outlet of expression of what I want people to know about me, not necessarily the real me but the surface layer I want people to see. I do, however make an effort to keep it real. Haters, lovers, friends, family: youre are all welcome.

I lost a friend recently, well more like that friend finally showed me for the umpteenth time what our friendship really is.... nothing.  Whether thats due to me or her is irrelevant at this point.  All I know is that I have learned from the experience, finally: I cannot sacrafice my own sanity to help others survive their emotional rollercoasters................ Sounds simple right? Wrong.  As of today, my circle is getting alot smaller.  There are certain people, and I am sure everyone can relate, that just take up space in your life. Sometimes they add a laugh but mostly they just send hot air your way whenever they feel the need to.  Those people who vent to you their problems becuase your "such a good listener."  It occured to me, after I had a mini meltdown, that I may not have enough strength left to be there for my REAL friends when they need it if I am always helping everyone else.  Not only does that add stress to me but it also distracts me from dealing with my own issues.  In a nutshell, I cant do it anymore.  I owe it to those who do care about and love me to stay strong and be able to be there for them when they need it.  MLC, LMM, JDS ♥

Passion vs. Security?!

So my friends and I are always in constant debate about life issues, recently it has been about love and relationships, specifically passion vs. security and the idea of someone (a lover, potential lover, past lover) making you “weak.”

My close friend is sittin on the fence about her long term relationship and whether its worth continuing or if the fire is dead and its time to move on. So she asks me an oh-so simple, yet incredibly complex question: What’s more important, passion or security (in a relationship)?! I don’t know why my friends insist on coming to me with such deep, philosophical questions especially regarding love and relationships when (by society standards) I don’t seem to be having any success in either departments. My answer came naturally though: passion. Why? Because security isn’t real. Security, especially in a relationship, is a figment of our imaginations. At the end of the day, you can only be grateful for who you have, appreciate lifes blessings as they are offered to you and feel the love surrounding you every day. Love doesn’t take orders, you cannot control it no matter how hard you try. Nobody owes you anything, instead they are choosing to share with you their life and you in return choose to share with them, for as long as you both concur. You cannot hold onto love or make it go away, it just is. Your only job is to trust, give and receive love and let go when the time is right. I cannot tell my friend whether her time is done with this love, only she can answer that. But I hope with all my heart she has the courage to trust the universe and do what her heart tells her - and to remember that the quality of your life is based on the journey, not the end result..

Passion however is one of the blessings that life offers you and allows you too experience. Passion cannot exist without love (in a relationship), nor can you control it, create it or hold onto it - you can simply feel it and appreciate it when its there. Allow the love and passion to penetrate your soul and pass through all the parts of your body, to your finger tips and toes, deep down in you heart, enrich your mind with positive thoughts. Passion is the reason the quote says “it is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.” It is a gift and we must not taint it with negative feelings that tend to form through an unwillingness to trust and let go at the end. One of my favourite quotes says love is as
perennial as the grass, so I say when you let go, you let love grow.

A different friend came to me with some news about a man she “has a weakness for,“ those were her words. She goes on to tell me she had to remove him entirely from her life, knowing that he is not right for her but unable to say no to him. Weakness is something you don’t want mixing with your passion and love. If a person makes you weak, they are taking away from you rather than enriching you, no? So even if that weakness seems inconsequential at the time, it should be viewed and reviewed as a reason to be cautious. Simply put, you don’t want a man to make you weak, you want a man to make you strongER. And it goes both ways, if you see a person is weak to you, its probably best you go in a different direction, at least for now. This seems to be an epidemic in our society these days; weak boys praying on weak girls and raising weak kids that repeat the whole damn cycle. However, everyone can experience this, even the seemingly strongest person you know. This is a topic I have not intellectually explored much yet so I will not write on it too much today but I am elated to once again feel that reassurance of my own trust in the universe, knowing that every experience is a learning experience.

I don’t have everyone’s answers, I can only search for my own meaning. To my friends, thank you and I love you. I cannot say this enough because in times of need you are always there to give me that boost of love and keep me grounded.  Bless you. I mean every word I say.  Cheers to a deeper love

Your children need your presence more than your presents. - Jesse Jackson

Monday, June 20, 2011


"Just because you miss someone doesn't mean youre suppose to be with them."  I have to remind myself of this everyday. The heart break I can deal with, been dealing with.  The forgiveness is there and the moving on part will happen in time..... but its that feeling of genuinely missing someones energy around you that I find the hardest to shake off.  Maybe I am not suppose to shake it off, maybe its lifes way of reassuring that the love was real.  If I didnt miss him, something would be very wrong. Thankfully, in my life, EVERYTHING MAKES ME STRONGER.

Love is when time, space and thought are but irrelevant products of pyhsics - Lola


Life is a bitch sometimes but we still gotta love it, its the only option if you really think about it.  Shit happens, you hurt you get over it. You move on..... more shit happens. More pain.  More happiness.  Thats why at the end of the day, you have GOT to relax and enjoy the small things - anything that brings you joy, feel it, revel in it, love it. Love imperfect people perfectly.  Stop waiting for a fairy tale. And never ever hold on to negative feelings, feel them and let them flow away naturally.  Life is too short to be mad, there are no do-overs or second chances (in this lifetime at least).  Sometimes, when you hold on to the past you miss out on the future, sometimes people hurt you but dont mean to, sometimes life doesnt pan out the way you had expected....

There is no rule book to life. This blog post is filtered, fuck it, here is what I really want to say:

I feel like the more I go through life, the more I realize life isnt meant to be lived within the cookie cutter template society provides us.  Society tells us to share as kids, listen to our parents, grow up well and make our parents proud.  Get an education, fall in love, get married.  Have babies.  What a joke.  Seriously?! That shit sounds boring as hell.  Maybe its just my overpowering inner rebel that makes me want to run in the other direction and pray for society and not follow in line but the way I look at it.... societys ways are not workin out all that well so who the fuck are you to tell me how to live.

Were told not to judge people, but then society judges us.  Were told to love people, but when we love more than more person at one time, were percieved as a bad person.  Were told to be "free" but then we are controlled on every possible level.  Society pulls us in from a very young age, through media, through our parents, through school.  And then moulds us into what/who they want to mass produce (a dumbed down version of them perhaps).  They put a shiny layer of pretty paint on it to fool us and then begins to suck the light/love/life out of us year by year.  The show us what they want us to see, but keep the real information hidden. For example, did you know when you sign a marraige contract, the courts have the right to refuse you a divorce?!?! What. The. Fuck.

Do you ever feel like the whole world is waiting for something to happen?  That everyone is miserable but wont do anything about it?  I feel like the world is getting boring...not becuase there isnt enought stimulation for humans, but that there isnt enough stimulation coming into this world through human beings anymore.  People are being flattened and boxed in, both physically and mentally..  I told my best friend the other day (one of the craziest friend I have) "I just want to dance in the rain and have sex on rooftops, is that reeeeeally soo much to ask?!" You know what she said to me in response? "Yea it kinda is, you'll get sick." Wooooaaaaah, was that ever a slap in the face of reality for me....kinda made me wanna slap her in the face, shake her and yell "WAKE UP!!!!!!"  I mean, the statement was somewhat of a joke, but her answer was serious.  Too serious, waaaay too serious.

Life is so complicated.  Anyone who doesnt realize love and pain go hand in hand, hasnt experienced real love or is not aware of it.  Its not to say love should be painful all the time, but to really love someone is to open your heart to them and give them a spray bottle of alcohol......and trust them not to spray.  Every single person in life will hurt you at one point, (whether its your children saying hurtful words they really dont mean in a fit of hormonal rage, or your significant other unknowingly neglecting a feeling you felt was valid) even the ppl who love you the most will hurt you at some point.  So as Bob Marley said, you just have to find the people worth suffering for (and those would be the ones who live their lives trying NOT to hurt you, knowing it may still happen but they give their best efforts to not let that happen).

So I guess what I am getting at is the idea of love, freedom and forgiveness...and that society supports neither.  So what if I want to dance in the rain and have sex on roof tops?! What is so wrong with open, honest, loving relationships?! The simple answer is, people are afraid.  Afraid of what they dont overstand, and afriad of falling apart, in societys standards.  Afraid of being judged and afraid of getting hurt.

So in the words of one of my ladies: fuck a love life, just love your life. Dont worry about what happens next, just love now. I hope everyone has the courage to love....... its the only way to really live.

Staceyann Chin at Ryerson University!!

Last week was International Womens Day, Staceyann Chin flew into Toronto to do a spoken word poetry reading on the Ryerson University campus.  If you dont already know who Staceyann Chin is, you must find out.  She is amazing and her memior she wrote about her life is deep.  It was the book of the summer last summer for us and I learned so much, her words, both written and spoken were so real and meaningful.....you could feel her pain, her passion and her honesty on every page, through every breath.  It was wonderful to meet her and talk to her.. and her best friend Raquel (who actually took the picture of us!).  She also signed our books (well a sticker for me cuz I lent out my book and cant find it). For those who dont know but are interested, the book is called The Other Side of Paradise. HUGE shoutouts and thank yous to Ryerson University for putting this event together. Photo: My two best friends, Staceyann and I
 Here are two videos I took that night. Much love and respect.

DROPPIN' KNOWLEDGE 1 YR ANN. VIDEO!

So I had to post this video for the homies, no question.  Introducing Droppin ' Knowledge: a series of Toronto based hip hop parties once a month, having just hit their 1 year anniversary!  My first DK party was early 2010 and they have been steadily gettin better since.  This particular night was also super special becuase it was DJ James Redi's birthday party, check him in the birthday glasses (curtosey of me! haha).  This video doesnt even fully capture the energy of the night, as well as missing out on the EPIC DJ James Redi drunken birthday FREESTYLE... Haha Yes, you read it right!

So much LOVE in one building, it was an EPIC night and I look forward to many many more.  If you havent attended a Droppin' Knowledge party as of yet, you better plan for the next one on March 4th at the Rivoli.  Speaking of which, ETERNIA will be headlining that night. DO NOT MISS IT!!!!!!!

Valentine's curse.

I have never been one to be overly bitter about valentines day. If I am going to bitter about anything in regards to this holiday its going to be about the downfall of society, and the fact that this stupid holiday is ONLY here to make money.  Fuck a love day, everyday is love day.  This is actaully THE dumbest and most detrimental holiday ever.  Not only does it cause people to pull out their wallets less than two months after xmas (and usually on a last minute basis) but it causes stress, depression, jealousy and even in many extreme cases suicidal thoughts.  Now dont get me wrong, I know this holiday can be harmless and fun..... if youre in a happy, healthy, stable relationship with a good person.  But if youre not, like most of us it can be a very hard day to get through. 

I feel bad for single women who put SO much importance on this holiday, as if it defines their worth or even worse makes them deem themselves "unlovable" or "unwanted."  This holiday makes women wish they were in other womens shoes, seeing their friends man bring home flowers and chocolate and blah blah blah.  Just because this man does this, does NOT mean he is faithful, it does NOT mean they are happy and it DOES NOT mean he is the perfect man.... it just means he bought flowers (its really so little, almost no effort but yet it takes a holiday to remind most men to do this). Remember the grass is greenest wherever you are, so appreciate who you do have and build, reciprocate and enjoy each other 365 days a year. 

This post goes out to ALL women: wives, girlfriends, babymammas, side chicks, single women who have ever felt the sadness of this day.  For every woman who has said FUCK MEN (and you know we've all done it ladies, you know, sworn off men....until our ex calls and we melt and fall back into the same fuckin shit), for every woman who has been cheated on or realized they were the one he was cheating with.  For every bad break up, for every lost friend....  For every good man you couldnt make it work with but still love.  For every moment spent missing someone. For every tear dropped over this drug we call love. For every young girl out there looking for her fathers missing love.  STOP! LOVE YOURSELF. Look in the mirror and say I AM A BEAUTIFUL LADY, HAPPY FUCKIN VALENTINES BABY.

Just for fun I would like to end this post with a quote by my friend Roxanne: a woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle. 

Goodnight world! LOVE!

A Beautiful Lady With A Male Mentality.





Wow. Woman are definetely the superior sex. Its quite clear, whichever way you look at it.  We are the defnition of beauty.  We grow humans inside our bodies.  And we can do it like a dude better than a lot of dudes out there. (You never gonna see a drag queen that makes dressing and acting like the opposite sex so hot, let alone sexy. Right? Yea.)  Mostly what I took from this song was the idea of a beautiful woman with a male mentality or like someone said once somewhere sometime - act like a lady think like a man.
