And now we come to…the end of an era

And now we come to…the end of an era

Today, oddly enough was supposed to be the pay off FINALLY for a number of posts about relationships that I thought might be better than all my previous ruthless on relationships post. And indeed I’ll get to that later.   Instead, Today is a day I bring us to a place I knew could happen, but was happy every time it didn’t. Today we end the hour for the last time. What do I mean? Today is the beginning of a goodbye party. For this blog. Oh it will continue to exist, but a transition is afoot. And so with Read more »

And now… at the end of the hour

And now… at the end of the hour

This week we debuted a brand new podcast with a livestream. We said goodbye to one of the founders. We tackled coons, and hoteps. As well as assault, and the HIV & AIDS treatment drug Truvada.     I skipped a couple lines to let that sink in. When this started I literally just wanted to take my usual facebook ranting to a website. I figured it would be like the old days of my Xanga page. Now, now I deal with potential sponsors, have production meetings, worry about our average listening and reading time, and look for brand expansion. Read more »

The Justice League, but first…WAR! (just kidding)

The Justice League, but first…WAR! (just kidding)

First things first New year, still Ruthless. Of course that doesn’t come without some announcements. The big stuff comes during the anniversary in March but as we’ve begun 2016 I wanted to make you all aware of something big. After much deliberation, we’ve decided to get rid of the guest blogger justice league. Because they aren’t guests. they may post only once in a blue moon, but they are as much a part of our staff as each and every R revolution member has been. And calling them by a separate name was not respectful of their contribution. So the Read more »

The Justice League Covers: Caitlyn Jenner

The Justice League Covers: Caitlyn Jenner

Inspired by a very brave friend who came out as transgender on Facebook today, I can no longer keep my silence.   Since the release of the most recent Vanity Fair cover on Monday, June 1st, social media has been concentrated with emphatic and vehement opinions, posts, blogs and articles regarding the transformation from a “he,” Bruce Jenner, to a “she,” Caitlyn Jenner. I’ve tried terribly hard to keep my opinions on the subject to myself so not to invite debate and attract people who disagree with my opinions, to leave mean and hateful comments on my Favebook. I’ve decided Read more »

Words Don’t Do It Justice: YOU are Forty Thousand Strong on our 2nd Anniversary

Words Don’t Do It Justice: YOU are Forty Thousand Strong on our 2nd Anniversary

Words Don’t Do It Justice “It was all a dream. I used read word up magazine.” I could keep going with that, but really I don’t feel like quoting too much of anyone else today. So let me address this with the style most comforting. When this all began it was an idea. The thought that we could give the world something in this blog that would be read by our friends, maybe a few co-workers and classmates. And every once in a while I’d get to deal with the issues I have to face on a daily basis by Read more »

The Justice League Covers Gamer Gate Pt. 2: The culture of infallibility that surrounds Anita Sarkeesian

The Justice League Covers Gamer Gate Pt. 2: The culture of infallibility that surrounds Anita Sarkeesian

Anita and the culture of shaming that shields Her A petition involving a well-known developer and Anita Sarkeesian began floating around the internet a few days ago. It was apparently about having Anita ousted from her role as an advisor on the development team that is currently working on ‘Mirrors Edge 2.’ “Alright,” I thought to myself. “What is she doing being an advisor on a videogame?” I decided to sign the petition. What I did not realize was that site would then post that link to my personal facebook. It wasn’t until I received my first comment that I Read more »
