  • Danez Smith at AWP
    Richard Saker/Contour by Getty Images As we end Black History Month, here is one of my favorite poets, Danez Smith, who writes on intersectionality between their Black and Queer identities.

  • Lying in Memoir
    Lauren Slater crafts diligent, depictive metaphors in narrative, and I hate her writing, simultaneously. Should there be lying in memoir? In her book, Lying: A Metaphorical Memoir (2000), Slater crafts lies from epilepsy to nunneries to doctor visits and proposed peer reviewed theses to AA meetings.

Take a bite out of these shockingly vegan foods

If I were to make a list of the things that scare me, it would be as short and unusual as Lady GaGa’s Crayola-yellow wig.

No. 1: Suffocating underneath my comforter. I can’t put my head under a blanket for more than five seconds without suffering from a severe case of claustrophobia. It made fort-making as a child incredibly awkward.

No. 2: Answering phone calls from numbers not in my caller ID. Part of me imagines the dude from “Scream” is on the other end.

No. 3: Vegan food. It’s tasteless and pushed by the agenda of crazy, animal-loving, naked people. (Shudder.)

But as one gets older, one must start to face her fears. And seeing as every time one of these three confronts me, there is no bolt of lightning and no horse whinny like the one Dr. Frankenstein received after saying, “Frau Blücher.” Perhaps I have less to fear than I imagined.

I still won’t keep my head under a blanket for any extended length of time. And I’ll probably still wince every time 10 unknown numbers show up on my cell. But today, I take a step in the right direction, for all of us quaking over the idea of “vegan” anything.

I Can’t Believe It’s Vegan!

Here is a list of unbelievably vegan foods. It can make even the heartiest meat-eater among us become a shining example of animal rights activism. Go ahead, face your fear, feel good about yourself. Get the complete list at
