Gave my Disney World aficionado parents the best (early Christmas) gift of all: an @away suitcase to accompany them on their travels to Magic Kingdom (and beyond). Muahaha XD #TravelAway

New @guccibeauty alert! The Gucci Bloom Deluxe Edition bottle has ~vintage flare~, but the same rich floral scent as the original Bloom imagined by Alessandro Michele. Featuring a retro-inspired black bulb and tassel atomizer spray, the bottle has found it's way into my fragrance collection -- just in time for the holidays.  #INBLOOM #ad #GucciBeauty

In conversation with @maeganfidelino, about power. For @ephemera.magazine Issue 5, available at http://shop.kastorandpollux.com @easytigergoods @likelygeneral @typebooks @i.m.p.o.r.t @habitcoffee @skylightbooks ✏️✏️✏️✏️ “With power, comes a conversation about authority as well. I think about authority a lot, and what authority means in our everyday lives as well as in our institutions. In school, professors and figures of authority have the power to pass or fail us. They have the opportunity to enhance our learning experience, or to really hinder it because maybe their personal views are very insular, or they’re not open-minded, or they’re unsupportive. Now that I’m a professor, I feel the responsibility of being a good “authoritative” figure. It has forced me to be self-reflective.
Firstly, what did I do to deserve this position of power or authority? Secondly, am I qualified? And along with qualifications comes this complex about imposter syndrome. Have I been granted this opportunity because of my age? Was I hired because I’m a novelty - someone who is youthful and relatable people doing their undergrad? Or someone who is aspirational?”

This morning, Anita Hill said “Women aren’t willy nilly making accusations against men.” And I think this is something we, as a society, often forget. These sentiments - a disbelief or a denial of women’s claims - are systemic and patriarchal, and they ultimately place a greater value on a man’s economy than a woman’s.

I’ve been wanting to write something about this for a while now, and in light of a powerful keynote from Professor Anita Hill at @canadianwomensfoundation’s #ExchangeYYZ, I am emboldened to give my two cents.
Fear of a loss of opportunity, or fear of being displaced or ostracized in spaces that operate like high school popularity contests, used to intimidate me. But there are a lot more intimidating, scary things that are happening close to home, and I certainly know that I haven’t - and won’t - be getting any opportunities by way of these spaces.

How many stories did it take for the public to see Bill Crosby as a predator? And in our own city, how many accusations must be made against certain public figures before we’re able to challenge power dynamics and protect younger generations?
