I had a lover, her name was Pink.

Pink was visually intimidating.  She was big and mean looking.  Her septum was pierced.  She looked like a bull.  She was wide and had a strong walk and a stance like a linebacker.  She kept her hair buzz cut short. People would often mistake Pink for a man.  Common perceptions of gender are limited to … Continue reading I had a lover, her name was Pink.

I'm wicked excited to be a part of Transcending Boundaries. I am heading to Worcester MA this weekend to present my research and perform a show on the same topic, Gender Variant Language!

Santa Cruz March 31 / April 1 ~~ San Francisco April 1 – 12

Is it wrong to sleep with the mechanic to get my car fixed?  I didn’t think so either, that was until I realized that I’m not straight and he’s not kinky.  Also, when he got his dick out I almost laughed myself into an involuntary golden shower! Is the car fixed?  Yes and no.  The … Continue reading Santa Cruz March 31 / April 1 ~~ San Francisco April 1 – 12

The Ess, My Trip to New England, and Another Shit Year in Sandy Eggo.

Coming Out

I generally think that coming out is a bad idea.  Anytime you have to articulate your identity you are giving credence to the ideology of heteronormative behavior.  When was the last time someone came out to you as straight? Coming out presupposes a world of coerced conformity. A world where nuclear, heterosexual, two person, monogamous … Continue reading Coming Out

The forced heteronormative expectations that we see in society foments in sexual culture, or rather in the void that represents sexual culture to us in the states.  We have a culture of silence, a culture that suggests that any sex is dangerous sex.  This anti-sex doctrine is being beaten into our youth through abstinence education … Continue reading Sexual Anomie

Queer Advocates in Public Schools?

I’m angry.  I’m angry at a system that is designed to entrap it’s citizens, to coerce conformity, and to expect heteronormative behavior without questioning the underlying presuppositions of this one-sided way of life.

Thanksgiving is when you find out what your family is made of

The night before thanksgiving I was settling down for a bottle of wine and 30 library books when the phone rang.  It was a young relative in tears.  Seems this person was chased out by zirs father in a tirade of bigoted, homophobic slander. I drove to the suburbs to rescue this teen, certain that … Continue reading Thanksgiving is when you find out what your family is made of
