Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week, and that you get some well-deserved fun or rest and relaxation this weekend!
This year, I thought I’d end every week by linking to some of my best pieces over at The Mary Sue. Of course, you can always bookmark THIS LINK to keep up with everything I write all the time, but to save you scrolling time, I figured I’d point you in the direction of the pieces I’m proudest of that week.
So, here are this week’s treasures!
I’d been meaning to write this piece for a long time. I grew up lower-middle class, and money was often tight. Is it any wonder that I wasn’t able to do things like collect comics or toys or see any one movie multiple times when I was a kid? In this piece, I write about the connection between one’s finances and one’s geekery.
This is a news item about Steven Universe in the UK, but as happens to many of my pieces, I use the news item as a jumping-off point for a short essay. This one’s about the double standard in children’s television that exists when we have no problem shoving heteronormativity down a kid’s throat, but withhold images of loving homosexual relationships, because they’re considered inherently “indecent.”

My most recent entry – inspired by a reader comment. Here are the pros and cons of a Black Widow movie.
That’s it for this week! If there are any topics you’d like me to write about over at The Mary Sue, let me know in the comments below!
