Story Excerpt

“Hey, hey, ho, ho, heteronormativity has got to go! Hey, hey, ho, ho, heteronormativity has got to go!”

“It’s not a very catchy cheer,” the blue fairy said, looking disappointed.

The red fairy furrowed miniature brows. “What is heteronormativity?”

I think it’s another word for reality,” the blue fairy replied.

This cheered the red fairy, who spun in a circle and said: “Foolish humans, they say the silliest things when they’re bored!”


Story Excerpt

Greg the mailman was depressed to see the nine jurors left to decide the case, each one of them puny in stature. Not puny physically, but puny mentally. It chilled him to hear the nine runts murmuring the word “privilege” back and forth like some sort of religious rite. He didn’t know what it meant, but he assumed such superstition wasn’t good news for Mother Nature.
