Why I love deconstruction

Tired of reading about cardiology, or the world, or life in general? Here’s a post on deconstruction as it applies to fanfiction, gender debates, politics and even medicine.

i don’t hate indigenous peoples, but i never learned to love them either

There is nothing scarier than the idea of hundreds of people suffering while millions of others don’t care.

Essay: TH does not believe in religion
