I’ve talked about dead women a few times on this blog, usually in relation to dead mothers, a trope I’ve become a lot more aware of since my mom died. When I wrote about the dead mom’s trope I counted seventeen different T.V. shows and movies that have characters with dead moms or use the …

Sometimes the things you read about online happen to you in real life. You can deny that these things will ever happen, read the articles with a chuckle and move on about your day, but perhaps these articles are more than just stories to read on your lunch break or while waiting in line to …
