BISEXUAL AGENDA: CLASSIFIED

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. Here are some serious questions that need answers so we... »

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... »

Trans Visibility Means Never Assuming Cisgender Status

Earlier this week was Transgender Day of Visibility. I struggled a little bit with what to say about this, because I work to be visible in my life.

However, I did want to take the opportunity to recommend some of my favorite books for those who are looking for some recommendations! However, unl... »

Judge Bob Loblaw Presiding

There are times, particularly in movies, tv, or books, when the beleaguered little guy wins a court case via some dramatically discovered technicality. The world rejoices that the “good guy” won, even if it wasn’t on the merits of their argument or overwhelming preponderance of evidence. Case in point – the Scopes trial.

So this is what my spouse and I got up to tonight, since the holidays are coming up AND it’s cold and snowy in Chicago. I thought I’d share it with all of you.
