There are stereotypes about you no matter what your demographic.
I'm a female, white, middle class, college student, healthcare worker in her mid twenties. I'm also a nearly life long sufferer of depression, an ex smoking daughter of a lung cancer patient and a girlfriend to a smoker. I'm an atheist who borders on anti-theist at times as well as a bit…Continue

Now, some people might think my depiction of the prophet Mohammed is disrespectful, to which I say, "suck it". I don't care what muslims think, nor am I afraid of them - that's the message of this image. Why is he being crucified? I thought it appropriate. To me, it represents the persecution complex.

He got pissed and started calling me a brainwashed idiot. All of a sudden I am dumb and "can't think" because I don't believe it was real. Then he said he was…Continue
I'm sorry if this is all rather vague.
Today I am Lain. I am Gulliver. I am a weary traveller in a strange world. I don't understand much and I am tired of hearing the noise of all these voices giving conflicting explanations.
