Sassy Takes
$3 or more per month

Everybody who knows me knows I'm famous for Sassy Takes and Spit Takes. But the title doesn't mean I'll be sassy here, it's more a reflection of my value of sass over irreverent humor. This tier will give you access to my reactions to semi-daily topics with nuance that 280 characters and threading does not allow.

Spit Takes
$5 or more per month

Everybody who knows me knows I'm famous for Sassy Takes and Spit Takes. Caution: You may do some spit takes while reading my entries. I like to insert snark into my educational discussions. This tier will give you access to my sassy takes and at least 4 essays about various topics affecting me as a disabled Black woman. 

Be prepared for surprises. This will be so much fun. I'm an onion; so many layers and great in many different situations.

Muchísimas Gracias

THIS TIER DOES NOT HAVE EXTRA CONTENT. IT'S FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE ABLE TO GIVE MORE.
