Welcome Benny to Queereka!

It is my pleasure to introduce Benny as Queereka's newest contributing author. Benny bounces back and forth between Madison, Wisconsin, and Chicago, Illinois, staying in one place only long enough to take a physics class or engage in a battle of wits with the unarmed.  He has, at age 30, finally decided what he wants to be if he grows up, and is attempting to study science during the week while teaching classes on alternative sexuality and gender issues on the weekends.  Benny is a queer polyamorous transman, curious skeptic, and enthusiastic seeker of knowledge.

In addition to articles, Benny will be rotating the Tuesday Afternoon Inqueeries with me. We are excited to have him on board!

We are still accepting applications for writers. If you are interested, please see this post for information and instructions for applying. I will be leaving the application open through the end of this week. If you've applied, we should get back to you with our decision by next week.

    You know how the AI was about what we wanted to see, and I said I had to think about it some more?
    Seriously, what I thought was… you know, I"ve been seeing thrilled to see GLBT issues beeing accepted more widly in skepticism generally, but on the T side of things, I haven't heard much from men.  Everyone I've come across is female, with the exception of a few commenters here and there.  I'd like to know more about transmen's experiences generally.
    And y'all made this announcement!  Welcome Benny, I look forward to reading you!

    Wooo! This Chicagoan welcomes you. And I have to agree with Besomyka, I'm really interested to hear from a trans man (presuming you'll be writing about that). If not, well, I'm excited to read anyways!
