Of walls and more walls

I was in a rush to get there before it closed.Suddenly, I noticed a shiny new black iron fence in front of me. There was no way around it.

Even though Ivanka Trump and hubbie Jared Kushner apparently convinced Daddy Dearest not to overturn the pro-LGBTQ executive order that was enacted by former president Barack Obama in 2014, I do not stand with Ivanka and Jared. I stand with them.

Even though in his statement, he, whom I call Not My President, said that he was “determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community,” I do not stand with him. I stand with…

In Catholic school, sex education was telling us not to…

Italians need to speak up against the anti-immigrant madness

by Tommi Avicolli Mecca

I’m tired of Italians in this country who either support the anti-immigrant/anti-refugee policies of the new ultra right wing administration in Washington, or who remain silent and don’t raise their voices in support of the immigrants being targeted.

Don’t these Italians remember or even know about their own family’s history in this country?

If you’re Italian and think that certain people, like Muslims or Syrian refugees, should be registered or…

Welcome!

With any new site, we understand that finding your way around can be a bit daunting. To help you use our site, we have a few resources and tips, all of which can be found on pages under the ABOUT tab in your top menu bar. They are:

FAQ- here you can find some quick answers to general questions, questions about privacy and about site features.

Site News, Tips & Tricks - this is our forum where you can find tips on using the site, news about site changes and other information from the staff and other members.

Our Terms Of Service and Our Copyright Policy can also be found under the ABOUT tab.

You may also find additional help by going to chat and asking another member. Chat can be found in 2 place: There is a CHAT link in your top menu which will open chat in your browser.

The other option for opening chat is to use the small tabs at the bottom of most pages. The tab named "Opium Den" (our chat name) will open the in a small pop up window at the bottom of the screen. This window can also be resized or 'popped-out' and used as a separate window.

There is a "Members Online" tab on the bottom of your page too. This will show which other members are logged in (logged in does not mean they are active in the chat, simply they are logged in to the site). There is a small speaker icon which will allow you to adjust the chat beeps which many prefer to turn off or down when not actively chatting.

We have many excellent features and tools here. While it may seem overwhelming at first, the basics of posting and commenting are simple and before too long we hope you will feel comfortable and at home.

Bang around, explore, write, comment and most of all have fun!
