My Gender Is Orange: Coming Out As–And Explaining–Genderqueer

My Gender Is Orange: Coming Out As–And Explaining–Genderqueer

[CN: Bullying, Gender Dysphoria] Whenever I tell someone I’m genderqueer, the first thing people usually ask is, “What’s that?” Most people understand the L and G of LGBTQIAA, but when it comes to the other letters, they are usually clueless. Two years before coming out as genderqueer, I already confused most of my friends when I came at as bisexual (with which I still identify). Now that the cat ... »

Sorting Out the Confusion: A Bisexual Q&A

Sorting Out the Confusion: A Bisexual Q&A

Last week almost eight hundred of you fabulous fluid queermos voted on the bisexual agenda . As a group of people who are notoriously confused, many of you took the opportunity to air your questions about life, the universe, and everything. Here are your answers. For the multiple people that had questions about taxes, I hate to break the bad news, but they were due last month. Maybe take this chan... »

British General Election: The Results are In!

British General Election: The Results are In!

As you’re no doubt aware, Thursday was general election day for the UK. Millions of us read the headlines in our heavily biased newspapers, millions of us were bombarded with incredibly annoying campaign leaflets, millions of us shuffled out to vote, and millions of us woke up on Friday morning to find our country in the hands of a Conservative government. It can be difficult to explain to s... »

BISEXUAL AGENDA: CLASSIFIED

Dear bisexuals, pansexuals, and fellow fluid queermos, You know I love you. I love you all so much, but it’s time for that love to get tough. We need to talk about the bisexual agenda. Lately, we’ve been letting our brothers and sisters at the gay agenda outshine us, to speak nothing of the overwhelming dominance of the straight agenda.

What is Loneliness?

What is Loneliness?

Members of the LGBT community are disproportionately isolated from friends and family. Some of us have been rejected by our families. Many of us have been forced to move far away from the towns where we grew up in order to find more accepting communities. Much is made of LGBT chosen families, but little is said about how difficult it is to build up said families. Additionally, we tend to be poorer... »

Phil Plait Gets An Apology Very Right

Phil Plait Gets An Apology Very Right

Over the weekend Dr. Phil Plait, also known as the Bad Astronomer, put up an episode of his really cool show Crash Course Astronomy. I LOVE the Crash Course series and use them as review for classes regularly. Dr. Plait’s show is particularly good if you like Astronomy and want to learn more. However, the episode this weekend included a problematic joke. The joke was fairly mild, but cissexi... »

Iceman is gay because a straight telepath said so.

Iceman is gay because a straight telepath said so.

If you’re a comic book fan you probably already know that Iceman of the X-Men has been outed as gay. It’s been covered extensively in the press and that, I think, is a good thing representation.Or rather it would be in any other circumstance. In the past I’ve felt ambivalent toward other super-outings. When Prodigy of The Young Avengers was outed as bi I was ambivalent. The context read like the a... »
