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 […]

What Can All Couples Learn From Same-Sex Marriages?

From Gay Unions Shed Light on Gen­der in Mar­riage A grow­ing body of evi­dence shows that same-sex cou­ples have a great deal to teach every­one else about mar­riage and rela­tion­ships. Most stud­ies show sur­pris­ing­ly few dif­fer­ences between com­mit­ted gay cou­ples and com­mit­ted straight cou­ples, but the dif­fer­ences that do emerge have shed light on the […]

Lady Abi­gail Irene Gar­rett is a foren­sic sorcerer, […]

Wow — We’ve Already Got the “Post-Gay” Generation

Researchers find it shock­ing that 11 per­cent of Amer­i­can girls between 15 and 19 claim to have same-sex encoun­ters. Clear­ly they’ve nev­er observed the social rit­u­als of the pan­sex­u­al, bi-queer, metroflex­i­ble New York teen.
