You: sitting next to your backpack on the Brooklyn-bound L train last night.

Me: super tired, holding onto the rail, standing up.

I asked you to move your backpack so I could sit down. You said you were getting off in “only one more stop.” I just nodded and looked away. I don’t know if you…

As someone who bikes a fair amount

in New York City, I’d like to see people hailing cabs in the bike lane more into the idea of getting a high five as I cruise past.

It works like this: You tell Kitestring that you’re in a dangerous place or situation, and give it a time frame of when to check in on you. If you don’t reply back when it checks your status, it’ll alert your emergency contacts with a custom message you set up.

If the dictum of good writing is “write what you know,” what do women and people of color know? What dreams and nightmares do they have? What are their battles and fantasies? What stories aren’t we hearing from them?
