Don’t Let’s Start #004: Overdue Introductions

Hi there! Welcome to Pop Culture Squad!

It has occurred to me that I might not leave enough of a personal footprint here on PCS. It also occurred to me that I’ve never sat down with you, Dear Reader, and told you what I and this site are all about.

So in a bit,  I’m going to rattle off a bunch of hashtags, slogans and sayings that summarize the core operating beliefs here at PCS.

This doesn’t mean every Squad member must agree, but rather, they respect that is the established point of view and stance held by PCS. Everyone’s personal mileage may vary. Some in the Squad are very political and very vocal about it. Others like to be more even handed and less controversial in their topics.

After all not everything IS political, but almost everything is TRIBAL. We are here to celebrate all the fun of Pop Culture first and foremost with fighting for social justice as a close second.

For a start, here at Pop Culture Squad:


We Believe Women.

Black Lives Matter.

Love is Love is Love is Love.

AR-15s are weapons of war not personal protection.

We are sex positive.

We do not slut-shame.

Women’s rights are Human Rights.

Trans-women are women.

We do not body-shame.

Han shot first.

Comicsgate is a Hate Group.

No quarter for creeps.

No human is “illegal”

Climate change is real.

Vaccines save lives.

Bobby Drake’s being gay did not “ruin” your childhood.

Representation matters.

Inclusion is important.

Diversity is everything.

Science is real.

The United States is a secular nation.

Her body, her choice.

The Earth is over 4 billion years old

Evans, Hemsworth, Pine, Pratt!

Now, do you have to hold each and every one of these to your heart like gospel to spend time with the Pop Culture Squad? No, not at all. You, Dear Reader are an autonomous person & we at PCS love and respect your autonomy, your humanity, your you-ness.

These are the hills I’ve planted the Pop Culture Squad flag on, and yes I will choose die on each and every one.
