My goal today is to eliminate three common phrases or words that are . . . → Read More: In This Corner: It would actually be awesome if we stopped using ‘no worries’.

Dead Wild Roses: Poetry Slam – Natasha

I’m looking for the transcript (found it)because sometimes the applause drowns out the speaker. In any case, this is a command performance and emphasizes a few important points about discourse in our society in general and feminism in particular.
