Racist Billboard Owner in Armstrong County Jabs at Sunoco in Latest Narrative Twist

Worthington Armstrong County billboards

As we’ve been talking this week about racist behavior by a School Board Director in Peters Township (and his wife’s opposition to considering a non-discrimination ordinance on the Peters Township Council), it seems like a good time to drop back in to Worthington, Armstrong County and see what the racist billboard has to say. You […]

Peters Township School Board Director’s Racist, Sexist Social Media Content Illustrates Need for Local Non-Discrimination Ordinance

William Merrell Peters Township

Content Note: racist slurs, sexism, lying white men (vile images below) Efforts are underway in Peters Township to introduce an ordinance establishing a local Human Relations Commission and to include sexual orientation and gender identity among the protected classes.

Even. More. Kittens.

When we last left this story, we had captured one kitten from a litter of five that are attached to a mama cat we’ve been feeding. We named him Sun Volt (SV) because he’s a gorgeous ginger orange tabby and he’s a fierce little man. He took up residence in our bathroom where our dog’s […]

Anastasia, 55, is a Woman Who Identifies as a White Trans Lesbian in Pittsburgh #AMPLIFY

Pittsburgh transgender lesbian

I shouldn’t make presumptions about how folks would react: that I should be prepared for generosity as well as a negative reaction. After the decades of gaslighting, I still struggle to keep this in mind, but I do believe that there is a lot of good will among straight/cis people for the LGBTQ+ community. Name: Anastasia […]

Kitten, Kitten, OMG So Many Kittens

Homeless Kitten

First, we thought Jennie Jane had two kittens. Then, we saw Sun Volt on the porch and he is now residing in our bathroom. And then we waited for the other two kittens to come back. That’s when we realized there were three more kittens, not two. They had clearly learned from Sun Volt’s capture […]

I Won a National Award for Blogging and Here’s How It Impacted My Life

Ok, so I won this award this past Saturday night. Not a real lengthy period for reflection, but reflect I will. I already told you what happened when I discovered that I won in this post. Lots of people retweeted and shared and said congrats and all that good stuff. It was great, especially hearing […]

Kitten! Kitten! Who has a kitten?

One of our semi-regular visitors has been Jenny Jane, a young tigerstriped female. We were discussing if she was preggers or not. Turns out, she was. And it turns out she successfully evaded the last local push to TNR in our blocks, successful because she is caring for at least three kittens who are about […]

Stop Blaming Gary Van Horn for All of the LGBTQ Community Problems in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Pridefest Delta Foundation Gary Van Horn

I’ve seen variants of this rhetoric all over Facebook in the past several weeks, a very intentional effort to hold Gary Van Horn, President of the Delta Foundation, (known as GVH) accountable for the ways in which the Delta Foundation has failed our community and for his own personal alleged crimes. I think it is […]
