I would have thrown the scarlet shackles off me, screaming, “DOOOOOON’T STOP…. BELIEVING! HOLD ONTO THAT FEEEEEEEEELING!” But that person ended up being Leo Varadkar, so I ran back into the scarlet bunker … Continue reading Leo Varadkar – A Scarlet Investigation

SCARLET FOR THE PATRIARCHY “We are a group of activist women from a wide variety of backgrounds, races, ethnicities, and sexual orientations.

Since Trump set foot in the White House I have spruced up my resume with … Continue reading Scarlet for Democracy

This is a video of Jenna Bush confusing the movie Fences with Hidden Figures, two of the biggest movies of the year starring black actors. Just in case Pharrell didn’t hear her, Jenna proceeded to say it another 420 times while also groping his shoulder and asking … Continue reading Top Five Scarlet Moments from the Golden Globes
