Judge Tenderly

“Judge tenderly, if you must. There is usually a side you have not heard, a story you know nothing about, and a battle waged that you are not having to fight.”

bog poor kurt quote

“One downside to a society with a meritocratic gloss is that it encourages the winners to think that life is fairer than it is, to overlook the merit in those left behind.  That’s something to talk about at the next family dinner.”

  • Poor, low-wage workers want to get off welfare; however, low-wage jobs are typically not flexible and have sporadic and arbitrary scheduling which prohibits time to search for better jobs or attend trade school and other scheduled attendance classes.
  • Poor children want to get ahead but inequality makes it harder:  they do not have the means to attend enriching summer activities and after school extracurricular activities which require money and transportation, and college costs rule out options of attending college: financial aid packages may not be enough to cover tuition and loans would burden them for decades as student loan debts surge past credit card debt.

Some has asked whether I was a Fem-dom author who publishes erotica books.  The answer is “No”.  While there are some sexy and fun erotica books out there (many are written by men using Female pen names— I suppose because they’re more apt at speaking from the male POV), none are Mine.  In fact, I’m not affiliated with any female-supremacy/female-led relationship books, manuals, seminars, instructional materials, etc.  That said, if you’re a writer and we have spoken before, please get in touch with Me— I would love to add your name to the up and coming Friends Page!
