Before going into this article, I want to give my readers a background from where I am coming from with this article — I worked in a pain clinic for six months, I have chronic joint pain myself, I currently work in the medical-legal field, and I seriously considered becoming a chiropractor at one point in my life. More on that later.
Whenever someone mentions the word “chiropractor” online, it’s often met with harsh hostility. …
It is impossible to really talk about season 4 without mentioning spoilers because a lot happens in this season, despite only being ten episodes long. So for that reason, I am giving a spoiler warning for the entire season.
This season, oh boy, a lot happens. June makes it to Canada, but many of her handmaid friends die. Janine gets captured and sent back to Gilead (we also see more of Janine’s backstory). Ms. Keyes (a wife they run into in the countryside) gets captured and turns into a handmaid. June is involved with the Canadian legal system while the…
The 1990s generation (those who are currently between the ages of 22–31) have it rough right now. Beyond rough. I was born in ’94, right about in the middle of this generation. We grew up in a period where technology accelerated extremely quickly (look at video games and computers for example, later on, phones as well). We grew up in a period full of optimism (“Go to school, you’ll get a job of your choosing no problem!”). Then adult life came crashing in and we suddenly realized how truly screwed we were as a generation.
Most of us in this…
Preface: I will do my best to avoid major spoilers with season 4 of The Handmaid’s Tale. However, since this season is currently ongoing as of the writing of this episode, it is likely that not all viewers are caught up to the latest episode, s4e8, so please read on with caution if you are not yet caught up.
I have survived numerous types of abusive relationships in my own history. However, I grew up in a home that was not emotionally healthy. I had suppressed, a lot. I grew up being taught that anger was a ‘bad’ emotion and…
I’m 27 years old and have been watching all kinds of anime since I was a young child. Do the math, I’m a mid-1990s baby. With that being said, we have come a very long way in regards to authentic representation for the LGBTQ community. I will not be discussing “sex anime” (aka “hentai”) in this article.
I have been established on Byte for about a year now. I got a question. Us Byters are very concerned about the fate of Byte. I understand that you're trying to combine Byte and Clash, but at the end of the line, what's going to happen to the Byte app? The forums were shut down. We are very worried that you all are going to perma-delete byte and force us over to Clash.
Many apps in the years of the internet have been bought out by larger companies and later shut down. We on Byte are terrified that is going…
I’m an ex-Christian. I started questioning my faith at a young age but didn’t officially “make the break” so to speak until my late teens. I always knew I was adopted. My adoptive family told me since day one, the weight of that statement didn’t really hit me until my teenage years, however. But I do have distinct memories of feeling unsettled with subjects relating to family, especially when it came to religion. My adoptive mother is Greek Orthodox, my father is Methodist, we predominantly went to my mother’s church growing up and I went to Sunday School.
At first, it was yellow
I loved the world and all it had
I was happy
I thought nothing of it
My love knew no bounds
Then it turned Muted Red
I got corrupted
I felt numb
I felt a rage that I didn’t know how to express
I felt scared I felt unsure
I didn’t feel connected
Then it turned to Red-Violet
I discovered the red umbrella world
I explored, I discovered, I found myself again
I felt my queer identity returning
I was starting to be happy again
I regrew my own seeds of hope
Then it turned…
I am a Romani disabled woman with multiple skin conditions. I consider myself NBPOC (aka “nonblack person of color”), so buying from brands that are POC or NBPOC in natural (so African, Middle Eastern, Asian, etc.) is important to me. Transparency is extremely important for a lot of us minorities who are often already overlooked within the beauty industry. …
It is AAPI (Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders) month (May). With that being said, I want to bring attention to the fact that as we all know, Asia is huge. Asia is the largest landmass on our Earth and with that, comes a very large population. This includes West Asia (Turkey, Iran, etc.), North Asia (Russia), Central Asia (India, Bangledash, etc.), and East Asia (Japan, Korea, etc.). However, Americans in particular seem to forget that people from Asia exist outside of East Asia and Southeast Asia.
Let’s test this. When I ask an American “What do you think of when…
