The tips on assertiveness training for women keep rolling out.

Ever wondered why gay men historically adopt women as their celebrity icons? Oh yes, do tell us, Huffington post.

Dear spoilsport queer athletes and fans: please don’t protest anything about the Russian Olympics. It would be so inconvenient!
