Do I Look Gay?

Do I Look Gay?

I recently watched a pair of YouTube videos in which a young man, MarkE Miller, asked people (one video girls, one video guys) on a college campus essentially if they thought he looked gay.  Now, at least part of the point of the questions and the videos were to create awkward situations.  At that, Miller was certainly successful.  However, he also seemed to be attempting to judge people’s attitud... »

Bisexual but not Binary

Bisexual but not Binary

Hi y’all.* I’m a new contributor to Queereka! This post is about how I came to terms with my bisexuality and the term “bisexual” as a gray-A, non-binary person. I grew up in a small town in PA. No one was gay. “Gay” was just an insult boys hurled at each other. When a family friend got divorced, the rumors that he was gay were just ugly insults, until years late... »

Collectivism at Duke

Collectivism at Duke

The Student Union of Michigan recently published an interview with a group of Duke graduate students that contained the unthinkable in a capitalist system, collectivization of wages. The Duke Collective, as they are known, was dissatisfied with the way that the university handled stipends and so decided to take matters into their own hands.  ” And so it initially began as a kind of emergency... »

Yes, I’m Trying to Eliminate Your Way of Thinking

Yes, I’m Trying to Eliminate Your Way of Thinking

On the ever-martyred Christian right, there is a particularly hilarious and absurd meme that the left and especially LGBT activists are trying to eliminate their opinions from polite speech, marginalize their beliefs and make it socially unacceptable (they often also claim illegal) to “believe that marriage is only between one man and one woman.” Of course, that particular belief is on... »

Coming Out Stories: A New Woman

Coming Out Stories: A New Woman

Note: This posts contains mature content. Both image links go to websites with adult content. If you’ve glanced at my biography, you’ll notice that I am a trans* woman. To simplify it, when I was born the doctor said I was a boy based off of my genitals. However, as I have aged I have realized that that was incorrect. I am a girl, a woman, female. To many this appears to be a choice. P... »

Changing Perceptions

Changing Perceptions

During the debates over Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, one of the recurring arguments used by the anti-gay side was that repealing DADT would hurt unit cohesion, as possibly the straight (male) soldiers would be uncomfortable having the gay (male) soldiers around, because the gay soldiers would maybe flirt with them or stare at their asses or something. This is similar to the arguments that ma... »

Miley Cyrus Backlash is about Appropriation of Male Privilege

Miley Cyrus Backlash is about Appropriation of Male Privilege

Miley Cyrus is such a racist! It’s true. So many articles were being written, it was hard to keep up. But my skeptic senses started tingling a little bit when I kept seeing her bikini described as “flesh-toned,” “nude,” or “skin-colored.” It didn’t seem like this kind of casual racism would have ended up by accident in article after intersectional ar... »

First US Administration to Actually Address Bi Issues

I generally don’t like to make a big deal around token gestures. It’s one thing to talk about things and another to actually do something. But this does seem like an important step. For the first time in history, a representative from the White House will be holding a roundtable discussion on bisexual issues, specifically how bisexuals are affected by public health problems, partner vi... »
