Lauren Elizabits

I write books, but tumblr won't let me make laurenmorrill.tumblr.com my main account, so I still have this one for my lefty political leanings and feminist rants.

I'm a (now-retired) roller derby player with six seasons under my wheels. I skated as Mona Mour. I'm a former Boston Derby Dame, of the Wicked Pissahs and Boston Massacre. I got my start in derby as a Bleeding Heartland Rollergirl (Bloomington, IN). Sometimes I still coach the Middle Georgia Derby Demons. When I'm not skating, I also write books.

I will hurt you for this. I don’t know how yet, but give me time. A day will come when you think yourself safe and happy, and suddenly your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth, and you’ll know the debt is paid.

hot DAMN roller derby is a sport of beastly, strong, fit, scary ass women.

Twenty years ago, only 1 to 2 % of women with cancer in one breast made that choice (double mastectomy). Now the rates are 15, 20, 25 percent.

Which is why the “Save the Tatas” campaign is even more tasteless. Women don’t give a damn about their breasts. They give a damn about their health.
