I’m still here, gimme a hot min

So yeah, I’m on lock-down like the rest of you.

But that  does not mean you get shitty poetry/whinny posts from me.

I’m cooking up some nice, spicy words that can spin possibilities.

Dreams of what’s life like post self-distance.

So much I write about is about intimacy.

What can I do to bring you into my space, spiritually?

Stay tuned.

Stay safe and healthy.

‘We Were the Undeserving Throngs’

From Chronicle Review:

Being a Black Academic in America

In the wake of the scandal, The Chronicle Review asked graduate students, junior professors, and senior scholars what it’s like to be an African-American academic today.

“The first thing I learned at college was that as a black student I had ruined college for everyone else.”  Read more here.

I’ll be back in a future post to talk about my experiences from grad school in New England to mid-career at an HBCU in the midst of many micro and macro aggressions along the way.

Comment and discuss below.

Fans and Stalkers Online – they are NOT the same thing!

Sooooo…..after looking at my WordPress blog (here), Twitter, FB page, FB profile, Tumblr, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Instagram, I’ve concluded that A) the creep who was stalking me like a little bitch paused or stopped after I warned him that I’m not one to fuck with and I do believe in filing police reports (yes, if you post creepy, threatening shit to someone you’ve never met you are a creep–esp if you are dumb enough to do it for someone else who’s also a creep–which does apply in this case) and B) I have some true blue fans, including a trans-femme submissive who apparently admires cis women who are older and buxom — he clearly interprets me as a domme (though I am older, buxom, and submissive in my own right). I’m cool with being admired by people of all genders and sexualities. It’s nice, actually. But I prefer folk a bit closer to my age, i.e., gen-x or younger baby-boomers, which means 40s-60s. And closer, which means the DMV area.

Mind you, I am one of billions on this planet using social media on this planet.  Start with your follow list, and move to your stats.

Be careful out there, fam.  Even academics can attract some stalkers online.
