Miscellany

I lost track of who orig­i­nal­ly linked to what, so I can’t cred­it them prop­er­ly. But thank you to who­ev­er they all were, any­way! Filed under “anoth­er rea­son I’m proud to be a home­school­er”: Cal­i­for­nia court rules that pri­vate school can oust les­bian stu­dents. I do under­stand that it’s a pri­vate reli­gious school and that […]

Bisexual Species: Unorthodox Sex in the Animal Kingdom: Scientific American

This could have gone in my last post, con­sid­er­ing Porter’s life ;-) Thanks to Scott Bragg for the link. Bisex­u­al Species: Unortho­dox Sex in the Ani­mal King­dom: Sci­en­tif­ic Amer­i­can … as many as 1,500 species of wild and cap­tive ani­mals that have been observed engag­ing in homo­sex­u­al activ­i­ty. Researchers have seen such same-sex goings-on in both […]

Civil Rights Win in Florida

Months ago, I post­ed about Ponce de Leon High School in Flori­da ban­ning the wear or dis­play of any kind of gay pride sym­bols or words, claim­ing that they indi­cat­ed involve­ment in an “ille­gal orga­ni­za­tion.” I lat­er found out that the prob­lem start­ed last fall when a les­bian stu­dent com­plained that she was being harassed. […]

Review: Carnival by Elizabeth Bear

Eliz­a­beth Bear suc­ceeds where David Brin failed in Glo­ry Sea­son. What would a woman-dom­i­­nat­ed human soci­ety look like? How would it come about? Why? What, if any, role would males play? How would that soci­ety inter­act with more “tra­di­tion­al,” male-dom­i­­nat­ed human societies?

Rainbow Stickers = Gang Affiliations? Right

Yeah, I hear there’s a real prob­lem with queer street gangs these days, tag­ging every­thing in sight with those damned rain­bows. ACLU sues Flori­da school for bar­ring Pride gear Admin­is­tra­tors at Ponce de Leon High School stat­ed that stu­dents’ wear­ing rain­bow stick­ers could mean that they are mem­bers of an ille­gal orga­ni­za­tion.… An uniden­ti­fied stu­dent was […]

Procreate or else!

Ok—if het­ero­sex­u­al mar­riage is so sacred because it takes a man and a woman to pro­cre­ate, those het cou­ples had best be prov­ing that’s why they’re mar­ried, right? Or at least, that’s the log­ic behind a bal­lot mea­sure pro­posed in Wash­ing­ton state. Pro­po­nents of same-sex mar­riage have intro­duced a bal­lot mea­sure that would require het­ero­sex­u­al cou­ples to […]

Hey, You — Yes, You, All You GLBT People

If we were speak­ing face to face, I’d feel more com­fort­able say­ing some­thing out­ra­geous to get your atten­tion, but it’s late and I don’t know some of you in “real life,” so I’m play­ing it safe. If you haven’t heard about Quest for Quo­tid­i­an: A Study of non-het­­ero­­sex­u­al fam­i­ly cul­ture, it’s past time for you to […]
