Star Wars & Dragons – Comic Reviews

My pile of comics I wanted to review has been stacking up. Last weekend, I stopped by my local comic book store to refill my comics. It’s close to the end of the year which motivates me to read faster to meet my Goodreads goal. I have two paperbacks, and three individual comic issues to review. Per the title of this post, there is a Star Wars comic along with a paperback featuring dragons. I’m going to start with the trade paperbacks.

The Tea Dragon Society by Katie O’Neill

Tea Dragon Society Book Cover

The Tea Dragon Society was more of a picture book than a graphic novel. The Tea Dragon Society features a mystical world where tea leaves are created by Tea Dragons. Each Tea Dragon creates a different tea leaf. Greta rescues a Tea Dragon from being maimed by a predator. She takes the Tea Dragon to Hesekiel who runs the local tea shop outside of town. Hesekiel teaches Greta over the course of a year how to care for these Tea Dragons.

Look how cute the Rooibos and Chamomile dragons are!

The art is light and refreshing. Each part of the book tells Greta’s story throughout all four seasons. I thought the Winter art was beautiful. It showed Hesekiel’s cabin lightly dusted with snow and gentle flakes flowing to the ground. The tea dragons themselves are adorable! In the back of The Tea Dragon Society, it shows the different breeds of the tea dragons and how to care for them. The Rooibos Tea Dragon looks like a baby dinosaur while the Chamomile Tea Dragon looks like a baby yellow bunny.

I loved this book. The Tea Dragons were adorable, the story was positive and overall the story had great messaging. I want to save this book for my future children to read to them. As mentioned, this is more of a picture book than a graphic novel, however, I think adults can enjoy this story as much as kids. I rated Tea Dragon Society five stars on Goodreads.

Snapdragon by Kat Leyh

There’s a rumor of a witch living on the outskirts of town. Snap (full-name Snapdragon) finds her lost dog on the witch’s property. Jacks is the “witch” who Snap meets at the beginning of the graphic novel. Snap helps Jacks pick up roadkill, so Jacks can sell the put together bones online. This fascinates Snap and she becomes interested in the generic anatomy of different types of woodland creatures. As Snap and Jacks build a friendship, Snap realizes Jacks may actually possess magical abilities and Snap starts to become aware of the world around her.

Snap is a delightful main character. She’s proud of the person she is and has no shame. I like the scenes of Snap analyzing the animal bones because it introduces Snap to science. Snap’s best friend, Lu, is experimenting with their identity. There is a lot of LGBTQIA+ representation in this book which is seen in Lu and other characters. I’m all for representation as I want to read diverse stories. Snapdragon is one such story.

Snapdragon is a quirky, slightly weird fun tale about acceptance. I rated Snapdragon four stars on Goodreads.

Doctor Aphra Issue #2 Wong, Cresta and Rosenberg

Doctor Aphra & her team are aboard their ship after the shootout from the last issue. Ronan Tagge contacts them offering a deal, however, their team doesn’t take it. They fly to a new location in their search for the Rings of Vaale and chaos ensues. I like Ronan Tagge as a villain. Any person who does business on Canto Bight is shady. In this issue, we find out more about Aphra’s past as she did business with Ronan. I thought this issue carried the story and I’m interested to keep reading. I rated DoctorAphra issue #2 five stars on Goodreads.

Finger Guns Issue #1 & #2 Richards, Halvorson, Nalty and Esposito

Finger Guns follows two kids, Wes and Sadie. Wes is goofing around and points finger guns at random people. To his surprise, he can change the emotions of the recipients of his finger guns. Wes discovers Sadie can do this too. They discuss what their “power” is and why it takes the form of finger guns. I like the concept of this series. I’m curious as to how this series will go. Is their power genetic? Is it completely random? I rated Finger Guns both issues four stars on Goodreads.

This was a much longer review post than I anticipated. Let me know what graphic novels or comics you have read recently.

James Bond Blog Tag

Before posting my review of Dr. No, I wanted to do a blog tag. I did a quick search and didn’t see a Bond blog tag out there, so I decided to create my own. If you’re a Bond fan, feel free to do my tag. If so, please tag me, so I can view your answers.

Favorite Bond Movie

My favorite Bond movie is License to Kill. License to Kill was released in 1989 and it was the last movie to feature Timothy Dalton. This movie is a revenge styled 80’s drug movie and I’m here for it. A powerful drug lord goes after Felix Leiter (Bond’s CIA friend) and Bond goes rogue. License to Kill is a perfect Bond movie and no one can tell me anything different.

Worst Bond Movie

Die Another Day is not great. The plot is so odd. It’s the only movie where a Korean guy becomes a British guy? If Die Another Day was made today, it wouldn’t fly.

Your “Bond”

Timothy Dalton will forever be my “Bond”. My top #3 are: Timothy Dalton, Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan.

Bond Movie You Love That Everyone Hates

The World Is Not Enough gets a lot of flak, although it’s one of my favorite films. I like Elektra’s character arc and how she is manipulative to everyone she meets. I constantly think about whether her character was influenced negatively by the titular villain Renard, or was she always a psychopath plotting revenge on her father. This is one of my favorite Pierce films to re-watch.

Bond Movie You Hate That Everyone Loves

I wouldn’t use the word hate, but I think Goldfinger has been over-hyped as being a classic “Bond”. Goldfinger features the infamous woman painted in gold and Oddjob with his dangerous hat. I prefer From Russia With Love as a good Sean Connery Bond film.

Favorite Travel Destination from the Bond Movies

One of the most classic Bond film locations was Phang Nga Bay in Thailand. This location was first used in The Man With the Golden Gun. This is where Bond and Scaramanga (played by Christopher Lee) face off to the death. Tomorrow Never Dies features a scene where Pierce Brosnan’s Bond is attacking Elliot Carver’s (played by Jonathan Pryce) boat.

I’m blown away by Thailand as a country and would love to visit.

Favorite Movie per Bond Actor Era

Sean Connery – From Russia With Love

George Lazenby – On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

Roger Moore – Spy Who Loved Me

Timothy Dalton – License to Kill

Pierce Brosnan – Goldeneye

Daniel Craig – Skyfall

Which Actor Should Replace Daniel Craig?

I’m rooting for Richard Madden. If you haven’t watched Bodyguard on Netflix, this will give you serious Bond vibes from Richard Madden.

Who Should Have Been Bond, but Never Was

Henry Cavill would have been a great Bond. He fits the Bond look and I think he’s able to pull off Bond’s charismatic and seductive persona.

Favorite Villain

Alec Trevelyan (played by Sean Bean) has to be one of the best villains. Alec is Bond’s equal in many ways. Sean Bean and Pierce Brosnan have amazing chemistry together. Sadly, Sean Bean doesn’t live to the end of this film.

Favorite Henchman

Jaws terrified me as a kid. He bites into people’s flesh and it seems like his body is made of steel. As a bonus, Jaws is featured in two Bond movies: Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker.

Favorite Bond car

The Aston Martin is the best Bond car. The runner up would be the Lotus Esprit featured in The Spy Who Loved Me.

Favorite Bond Themed Memory

The first official Bond movie I remember seeing in theaters was Skyfall. Skyfall was released in 2012 when I was a freshman in college. I went to see Skyfall three times in theaters. Daniel Craig’s first Bond film, Casino Royale, was released in 2006 when I was in 6th grade, so I was still too young to see in theaters. Skyfall was the first Bond film I saw as an adult. It’s a favorite memory of mine.

The Bond blog series will kick off next week with my review of Dr. No. After the movie review, I will post a science based post about the science behind that particular Bond movie. Finally, I will finish with a third post highlighting the Bond women in the film. This will touch on the actresses, their backgrounds and where women’s rights were at the time the Bond film was released. I’m excited to begin!

Marvel’s Avengers

I had high hopes for Marvel’s Avengers. As written in a previous post, superhero games can either be well made or unplayable. From everything I had read regarding Marvel’s Avengers, I thought this game had potential. I didn’t buy the game immediately after it was released which is something I usually never do. However, my fiance brought it home for me one day since he knew I wanted to play it. Marvel’s Avengers is a mediocre, and disappointing superhero game.

The game opens with a celebration titled A-Day. A-Day launched the new HQ in San Francisco along with a helicarrier powered by a Terrigen Crystal. The Avengers have pulled away from A-Day celebrations after an attack by Taskmaster. Unfortunately, the helicarrier is destroyed leaving the surrounding citizens in San Francisco being exposed to the Terrigen mist. The Avengers were blamed and were forced to disband. Kamala Khan was exposed to the Terrigen mist and has been hiding her powers. Five years after A-Day, Kamala starts to investigate “AIM” the replacement for the Avengers, and discovers some incriminating evidence against them. She’s on the run to protect her family and bring the Avengers back together.

Marvel’s Avengers claims to be an “Avengers” game when really it’s centered around Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel. I loved playing as Kamala. She’s a character I didn’t know much about and her positivity helped bring back the Avengers. I do believe the game wasn’t marketed as well as it could have been. The title of the game is Marvel’s Avengers, so I went into playing this game believing I would be playing an Avengers game. Kamala is on the cover, although a lot of the gameplay is her story. Besides Kamala, the Avengers do sound like the characters they are supposed to represent. I thought the voice acting was spot on and the way the characters were designed felt true to the comics.

In my opening paragraph, I stated how Marvel’s Avengers is a mediocre game. This game could have been so much better. I hated how I couldn’t switch heroes in a mission. The heroes have various abilities that allow for collecting resources. Resources are used to level up the Avengers. For example, if I played as the Hulk on a level, there might be a collectible to unlock as Black Widow, but since I can’t switch hero mid-mission, I’m not able to unlock this collectible. It’s annoying! I don’t understand why there couldn’t have been a button on the controller allowing me to switch between the heroes.

Let’s talk about the missions. There are the main campaign missions contributing to finishing the main story along with side missions. I found the missions were repetitive. If I played a side mission on one map, it was often repeated in the campaign. It seems Marvel’s Avengers used repeat maps to try and finish the game faster. It’s lazy to create missions as side quests only to replay them in the main campaign.

Finally, I disliked how the Avenger’s health worked. As an Avenger loses health, one of the few ways to regain health was to punch green boxes on the maps. This would allow an Avenger to heal. It seems odd that a god of Thunder doesn’t regenerate health, isn’t he a god? Doesn’t Captain America’s super-soldier serum allow him to regenerate health automatically? The health system could have been designed better to be unique to the specific Avenger I was playing as.

Overall, Marvel’s Avengers was a fun game. It could have been amazing if the game was tweaked. I must not be the only gamer who feels this way because Square Enix lost $105 million from this game. To bring life back to the game, Square Enix is introducing Kate Bishop and Hawkeye as DLC. I’m afraid it’s a bit too late. I’m undecided if I would invest more money into the game or pick up the game again. I give Marvel’s Avengers a 6/10.

James Bond: Movie and Science Series

The Living Daylights – one of my favorite Bond films. Photo taken by me.

Last night, I was listening to Bill Nye the Science Guy’s podcast Science Rules. The episode discussed the James Bond film franchise and how scientifically plausible the stunts, gadgets, or action sequences were. It sparked something within me. My latest blog series is going to be a re-watching of all the Bond movies.

I’m going to begin in chronological order with Dr. No which is Sean Connery’s first outing as Bond. In between the movie review itself, I want to take one aspect of the movie and do research to decide if it’s plausible or not. It’s researching the science behind the films. My hope with this blog series is to create a unique take on the Bond franchise.

I’m going to dedicate a few posts per film. This gives me time to watch the next movie in the series. The first post will be the movie review, the second post will be the science of one aspect of the film. Another potential post idea is to discuss the Bond women in each film. This could include how Bond treats the women, how the women auditioned and were chosen to play the role. I might tie this into the era of the Bond films and what was happening politically with women obtaining equal rights.

I’m thrilled with the idea of this series. This will lead to the latest Bond film, No Time to Die which has been delayed. Most of the Bond podcasts I follow are hosted by men and this is my take as a woman and a fan of the series. I hope you’re as excited as I am. If you’re new to the Bond series, you can watch along with me. Most of the Bond films are available on Hulu.

In the meantime, feel free to post in the comments your favorite James Bond film.

Superheroes Needing Video Games

Superhero video games are either fantastic or terrible, there doesn’t seem to be anything in between. Batman Arkham Asylum is one of my all-time favorite video games. Rocksteady took the Batman universe and melded it into an enjoyable gaming experience. I’m playing through Marvel’s Avengers now and while I’m having a fun time, it’s a heavily flawed game. I was thinking the other day regarding which superheroes deserve the “Arkham Asylum” treatment which led me to create this post.

Aww he looks cute now, but just you wait. Image from Pixabay.

X-Men: Open World or a Super Smash Bros Brawl

I could see the X-Men having one of two different game designs. An open- world X-Men game would be great. Having a story mode with plenty of side quests would allow you to unlock various members of the X-Men. Another intriguing game concept would be to do a “Super Smash Bros” style game playing as the X-Men. I think gamers would fight over who gets to play as Wolverine, but still, I think this concept could work.

The possibilities!! Photo taken by me.

The Defenders

The Defenders would be similar to Spider-Man in the sense it would be an open-world game based in New York. I could imagine this game turning New York into a darker version similar to Gotham. It would feature stories allowing you to play as Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist. Additionally, let’s introduce Valkyrie (played by Tessa Thompson in the movies), Hellcat, and Silver Surfer. Can someone please make this??

Photo taken by me.

Birds of Prey

My ideal Birds of Prey would be an older Oracle being the head of the organization. Black Canary would be the main playable hero with Helena Bertinelli on stand by. I’m imagining if Gail Simone’s Birds of Prey run was turned into a video game. The possibilities!

The Sinister Six + Black Cat because why not?

Sinister Six Meets GTA

Hear me out. The Sinister Six somehow get the upper hand, Spider-Man is supposedly killed and New York is in chaos. Being able to rotate which Sinister Six character you play as while roaming around New York and blasting everything to bits. I could see halfway through we learn Spider-Man is alive and works with the Avengers to take New York back.

I wish more game companies would take on superhero-based games. As mentioned in my opening paragraph, it can be a big undertaking to make a superhero game. Square Enix lost a lot of money making this game. I think if game companies are willing to put in the work of understanding these characters and creating a fun game, these games can be profitable. If you’re unsure, why don’t you ask Rocksteady?

Carrie Fisher & Female Secret Agents – Recently Read Books

It’s been four years since Carrie Fisher has passed away. Isn’t it unreal how time passes? I remember hearing the news and feeling a sense of shock. I never met Carrie in real life, although she had a way of making you feel like she would have been your best friend. She cared about Star Wars fans while being a champion for mental illness. I finally read her memoir The Princess Diarist along with another female-centered book and I wanted to combine them into one post.

The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher

This is the book most well known for discussing Carrie’s intimate relationship with Harrison Ford. This memoir is so much more than discussing an on-set relationship. Carrie talks about her audition for the part. Interestingly enough, Carrie auditioned for both George Lucas and Brian DePalma who was looking for the leading part in his Stephen King adaptation to Carrie. Carrie discusses how she was supposed to lose weight for her role as Princess Leia and how the role impacted her as she aged.

Carrie walks a fine line while discussing her relationship with Harrison. The description is delicate. She’s able to discuss her relationship with him without revealing everything especially since Harrison himself is extremely private. The way she describes their interactions sounds like Harrison. She also states, “How I’ve portrayed Harrison is how Harrison was with me forty years ago.” She’s able to tell this story without the bullshit and also recognizes how Harrison isn’t necessarily the same person while he was with Carrie. I think this line shows the tact and professionalism Carrie exhibits when she wrote this memoir.

Another part of the memoir I enjoyed was how Carrie discussed her fame from the saga. Carrie details some of the offensive interactions with fans as they talk about how Carrie’s body changed and how she aged since her role. Carrie respects the fans along with herself and how she won’t put up with that behavior. She talks about how exhausting it was to sign autographs while not making a huge profit off of it either. As fans, we need to respect the actors who work on the series and how they are people, just like us.

Carrie Fisher was a national treasure. She will be missed forever. I would recommend this memoir if you’re a Star Wars fan and simply miss Carrie’s presence in the fandom. I rated The Princess Diarist four stars on Goodreads.

The Athena Protocol by Shamim Sarif

The Athena Protocol is a sapphic, young adult spy adventure novel. The Athena Protocol follows an organization titled Athena which is an all female based spy organization. They work outside their global governments to deliver justice and deconstruct corruption in various countries. The agents are well trained to handle the challenging environments they’re thrown into.

The Athena Protocol follows Jessie Archer as she’s on a mission in an African village. Her mission is to rescue women who have been kidnapped. She witnesses violence against these women and ultimately kills the man responsible. Athena has one rule, no killing. Jessie is fired and left out of a major operation happening in Belgrade. Jessie decides to work alone and flies to Belgrade to assist her team without their knowledge. Stakes are at an all-time high as Jessie uncovers new information which may jeopardize the safety of her fellow agents. Jessie is in danger and she’s alone.

One series I read a lot when I was younger was the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz starring Alex Rider, a young kid working for MI6. The Athena Protocol is this series, however, women are leading the front. Each Athena agent is given some back story. Jessie was recruited to this organization by her mother. Caitlin is a Southern belle who went to war in Afghanistan. Hala was seeking asylum in the UK and was recruited by Jessie. There’s diversity amongst all the women in Athena. I’m all for including diversity with characters in media.

The action sequences were well written and made me anxious for the characters. Jessie is put into some intense situations at her young age. The last thirty pages were intense to read. It’s surprising to me because The Athena Protocol is only 295 pages. It’s difficult to combine all the action, character development, and descriptions of the Athena group and have it all work together. Shamim Sarif, the author of The Athena Protocol is incredibly skilled at creating this world.

I cannot say enough good things about this book. According to Goodreads, I finished this book within two days of starting it. The second book to the series is out now and I’m going to ensure I order it on my next book haul. I rated The Athena Protocol five stars on Goodreads.

I hit my 2020 reading goal on Goodreads today! I still have a couple of books I want to finish before the end of the year. As always, feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section below.

Halloween 2020

Happy Belated Halloween! I hope you all had a wonderful, spooky season. I still haven’t taken down my Halloween decorations yet. My stormtrooper holding a pumpkin is still sitting on an end table while my windows are decorated with fun Halloween themed window stickers. With the era of Covid, I was able to host a small gathering with my friend and her boyfriend and it was fun to be able to celebrate Halloween safely.

You disappoint me.

Me and the fiance went as Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper. This is the first year we put our kitty Athena in a costume. She had a harness with a cowboy mouse sitting on top of it. I think technically Athena was a horse for Halloween? She hated the harness, so we only put it on for photos and took it off.

One Big Happy Family.

We were able to eat pizza, play music, and have a couple of cocktails. I made a cocktail titled Witches Brew. I found the recipe off Pinterest. It has white rum, blue curacao, raspberry juice, ginger ale and I topped it off with blackberries. They were boozy. I did wake up feeling slightly hungover the next morning.

Darth Vader and Alexis are actually best friends

Ultimately, I’m glad I was able to not miss out on Halloween. It wasn’t what I wanted it to be. Last year, I spent it at a brewery dressed up with friends. With Covid, we have to make do with what’s safe to do. Now, I’m quarantining until Thanksgiving because we are seeing the fiance’s family in Milwaukee. Let me know what you were for Halloween this year in the comments below.

Better look at Athena’s harness.

Normal People

My friend finished watching Normal People on Hulu and immediately messaged me asking if I had seen this series yet. As a side note, I take a while to watch TV shows since my fiance and my friends seem to watch media faster than I do. She couldn’t stop raving about Normal People and how the sex scenes seemed to be realistic. Normal People is an emotional story of two people falling in and out of love throughout their lifetime.

Based on the book of the same name by Sally Rooney, the series follows Marianne Sheridan (played by Daisy Edgar-Jones) and Connell Walderon (played by Paul Mescal). Marianne and Connell first meet in secondary school with Marianne being painted as the weird girl who reads too many books. Connell is popular although he is attracted to Marianne, he doesn’t want his friends to know. They have sex and Marianne is angered to learn Connell takes another girl to a dance. Marianne and Connell meet again throughout their adult lives as they contemplate being committed together.

The chemistry between Daisy and Paul is undeniable. I wouldn’t be surprised if these two were dating after the camera stopped rolling. This show is an emotional rollercoaster. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t crying every other episode. The sex scenes feel real. They aren’t super fake and over the top moaning. As I watch these scenes, it feels like two people having sex who truly care about each other’s being.

I do have to offer a slight content warning as this series is extremely emotional to watch. Marianne is victim to familial physical abuse by her brother. The show doesn’t explain why this happens unless I missed it. From the abuse, Marianne finds herself in abusive relationships. It’s heartwrenching to watch because we know Marianne deserves so much more. There’s a storyline leading back to suicide as one of Paul’s friends from secondary school commits suicide. As I mentioned, this is an emotional series beyond Marianne and Connell’s relationship. It’s important to be in that mindset to fully enjoy this series.

I haven’t read Sally Rooney’s book where the series is based. I’m undecided if I will read the book because I loved the show. Usually, I recommend reading a book before viewing the adaptation, but this adaptation is so good! A couple of my favorite book vloggers have already rated the book and their reviews weren’t positive. I have this book on my to-be-read shelf, so maybe I will get it reading this book eventually, but it’s not a high priority.

Normal People is so much more than a love story. It’s a commentary on love, life, and experiencing tragedy. As I mentioned above, it’s best to be in the mood to watch this emotional series. I cried every other episode because I was happy for the characters or I genuinely was sad for them. This is a series I would re-watch if I need a good cry. If you have read the Normal People book or seen the series, let me know in the comments below.

Gibbous A Cthulhu Adventure

Gibbous A Cthulhu Adventure. Photo screenshot taken by me.

I’m back to writing regular posts! After hosting a Halloween party followed by the US election, I wanted to take a week off from writing posts. I can’t believe Halloween is already over and Thanksgiving is a couple of weeks away. I wanted to write a post about one of the Spooky games I played leading into Halloween this year. This was one of the games I mentioned in my “Spooky Steam Haul” post. Gibbous A Cthulhu Adventure is a spooky inspired, point and click game with a magical talking cat.

Buzz and Kitteh.

The story focuses on two major characters. Detective Don R Ketype is a PI tasked with recovering the Necronomicon. For those unfamiliar with Lovecraft’s writings, the Necronomicon is an evil book filled with spells destined to bring the world to its end. Don visits the library and meets Buzz Kerwin, a broke college student. An explosion occurs leaving Don kidnapped and Buzz finding the Necronomicon. Buzz takes the book back to his apartment and repeats a spell allowing his Kitteh to speak in words versus meows. Both Don and Buzz need to find out who’s after the Necronomicon and return Kitteh to her normal kitty state.

Buzz and Kitteh!

Gibbous A Cthulhu Adventure was made by Romanian game developer Stuck in the Attic. Although the game was backed by a Kickstarter campaign in 2016, it was released on Steam three years later in August of 2019. As I took the time to research this game and the developer, I discovered Gibbous A Cthulhu Adventure was translated into twelve languages.

I adored this game. I liked playing as Don and Buzz although Buzz was my favorite since he had Kitteh with him. The game was well designed and never glitched on me. The game had enough of a challenge where certain levels took me a bit of time because I would get stuck on what I’m supposed to do next. The game itself was incredibly well made and crafted. Being a fan of Lovecraft’s work, there were several references to his work throughout the game.

As far as replayability, I ended up playing this game twice through. The first time to complete the game and the second time to unlock all the Steam achievements. There are story-based achievements and missable achievements. The missable achievements were slightly annoying at times because you can’t go back and play a level. If you miss the achievement, you would have to play the entire game over to get that achievement. According to Steam, I played this game for 13.9 hours. This is with two full playthroughs of the game. It’s safe to say this game will take 6 hours to complete.

Gibbous A Cthulhu Adventure is a fun Spooky game perfect for any cat lover or HP Lovecraft fan. Gibbous A Cthulhu Adventure can be purchased on Steam for $19.99.

President Joe Biden & Vice President Kamala Harris

The United States election was this past week. Last Saturday, the results were announced with Joe Biden winning the presidential race along with Kamala Harris being the first female Vice President in our nation’s history. It’s a historic time and I finally feel as a country, we are back on track.

Normally, I don’t discuss politics on this blog. This blog is my geeky space where I discuss pop culture, books, comics, and video games. However, this election is way too important to skim over. I was never a fan of Donald Trump. The way he would talk about various groups of people is appalling. The US is not containing the Coronavirus and whether it is entirely President Trump’s fault, he’s still leading this nation. This is his responsibility.

With this being said, I don’t believe Biden or Harris are perfect. Biden was a main supporter of the “Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act” This act passed in 1994 has helped create the mass incarceration seen in US prisons. Harris has been known to be against prostitution and would go after websites sex workers would use. These websites would help sex workers be safe in their line of work. My views line with being a Democrat, although I want to hold my politicians accountable whether they are a Democrat or a Republican.

It’s difficult to put into words how happy I am with Biden’s election. I’m more thrilled for Kamala Harris and being the first female Vice President. Little girls will get to grow up in an era where they will see representation in the highest office in our nation. A Female Vice President means we are closer for a Female President in my lifetime.

With any political post, I will not tolerate any hatred in the comments. I reserve the right to not approve any comments or report them as spam. I write this post because I want to make it clear where my opinion lies as this election is crucial in the time we live in. If you’re a Trump supporter, I will not debate you in the comments. I was harassed by Trump supporters when Trump won the election in 2016 and as I re-read this post, I don’t think it’s disrespectful or rubbing it in anyone’s face. I stand by Biden / Harris and I voted for them because they would be the most qualified to lead our nation out of this pandemic we live in. I hope everyone is keeping well during this time.
