Frisky Rant: An Atheist’s Take On Lent

Rebecca Vipond Brink / February 18, 2015

I wasn’t always an atheist. There was a period in my life in which I was Catholic, and I humbled myself by giving things up for Lent. Or, well, I ostensibly gave things up for Lent, just like every other Catholic. Because let’s be honest, Lent is pretty much just New Year’s Resolution Mulligan, and… More »

Dealbreaker: The Third Wheel Hated Me

Camille Guillot / February 17, 2015

The girl was great: Tyler, a bright-haired activist who confessed her crush on me after a feminist burlesque show. The dates were great: a Valentine’s Day dance party in a warehouse-turned-art-gallery, a night in watching old movies. The third wheel, on the other hand, was not so great.
