This was a very special photo session for her.

Let Me Ruin This For You // Taylor Swift Doesn't Understand Why Everyone Is Mad at Her

Let Me Ruin This For You // Taylor Swift Doesn't Understand Why Everyone Is Mad at Her

Yes, Swift has accurately detected that her reputation is in shambles. Unfortunately, it is not because she is a trenchant revolutionary. Rather, Swift's reputation is deteriorating thanks to her penchant for repeatedly appropriating black culture in her music videos while refusing to speak out against police brutality. Her reputation is due to the empty feminist proclamations she makes while remaining silent when the man who would become our president publicly admits to sexually assaulting women.

Tulle & Fury // Should Wedding Professionals Consider Active Shooter Training?

Tulle & Fury // Should Wedding Professionals Consider Active Shooter Training?

I’m sure a morbid game of Six Degrees of Trigger Separation could be played by every person in this country. How close have we been to death? How close have we been to being in that congregation, or at that concert, or in the sights of a killer? We mourn for a few news cycles. We run stories about the shooter and his family.

It doesn’t have to happen but it does and it will.
