    More Like "Classical Liberal" In a Nanny State

    Everything's Bigger In Texas

    It's this one state called Texas. Anyway, half of my school is gun-toting, bible-thumping, and the-government-should-get-the-hell-out-of-my-business conservatives. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Its just a bit disheartening when you try and state your own opinion...

    Oklahoma Is Not Okay.

    I live in Oklahoma.  Do I really need to tell you what it's like?  All I can say is that it is an unfriendly place for a non-Republican, birth control taking, gay loving, independent, legally single woman who lives in glorious sin with her boyfriend.

    Never Underestimate Conservative Violence

    I live in Louisiana. That alone should give you a hint. Rampant homophobia (and the adjoining homoeroticism that goes with it), religious extremism, and very small minds. I was raised an atheist, and was bullied mercilessly for it, and my brother got into a few fights over it. He...
