This may come as a surprise to many of you, but there is a lot of porn on the internet. More porn than right-wing evangelical sites trying to sell you buckets of survivalist food or [...]
Y’all, people are being very mean to Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) on the internet. Again. I mean, what does this guy have to do to get some respect around here? On July 14, Graham [...]
“Pride month is over,” Christian evangelist Franklin Graham declared on Facebook. You hear that, everybody? Those rainbow flags should all be taken down and boxed up in the basement next to that giant, light-up, inflatable [...]
Congratulations to Gavin Grimm. If you don’t know that name, you should, especially if you give a damn about transgender rights and the attack on trans kids in this country. Grimm sued his Virginia school [...]
I’ve gone from grocery store to grocery store buying up every box of the Kellogg’s Together With Pride cereal and I have them all listed on eBay. I’m kidding, I did not do that. Although [...]
Aside from women daring to make their own reproductive decisions, there’s nothing right-wing conservatives hate more than Pride Month. The “rainbow deluge” the Family Research Council’s professional hate monger Tony Perkins calls it. Honestly, Rainbow [...]
I remember it like it was yesterday: Trump supporters flying flags that said, “Fuck your feelings," wearing “Suck it up, Buttercup” T-shirts and making fun of safe spaces. Now, these same people are demanding that [...]
When I was a kid in the '80s I saw an episode of the "Twilight Zone" called "To See the Invisible Man.” In a future society, people get a mark on their foreheads, kind of [...]
Tennessee is on an anti-LGBTQ+ roll, y’all. You may remember that I wrote about how gay country music star T.J. Osborne was supposed to get honored by the state legislature via a resolution. But a [...]
Whenever I want to bum myself out, I do a Google news search for “Florida.” Because if terrible things are happening in the country, I can always count on Florida to kick the awfulness up [...]
Greetings from a pandemic that is still ongoing and getting worse in places. Here is a public service announcement: you don’t need to be eating inside of restaurants right now even if your state says [...]
To create the right kind of atmosphere in order to write this I have all the lights off and am using a black background instead of a white one on my computer. I’m also burning [...]
Hip, hip, hooray! The U.S. House passed The Equality Act! We’re all equal now! There’s no more hate, no more homophobia, no more Marjorie Taylor Greene! OK, that’s a bit of an exaggeration. But the [...]
Have you ever thought to yourself, “What could somebody do or say that would get them kicked off of the Conservative Political Action Conference’s speaker roster?” and then found yourself thinking really hard about it, [...]
Well, well, well, if it isn’t another week in Horror Town, USA. That's just about any town in the country right now, but it's definitely all of the towns in Florida. Every time I watch [...]
There’s a reason #StayTheFuckHome is trending. Because that’s what we should all be doing. As much as possible, of course. There are lots of people who can’t, maybe because they have to work or have medical appointments they can’t miss. In other words, good reasons.
When I was in elementary school I was taught that the Mayflower landed at Cape Cod and that’s how the pilgrims (aka the puritans) arrived in America. After this lesson I did not become, nor was I tempted to become 1.) A pilgrim, 2.) A deckhand, 3.) A cod.
When I went to the library recently there was a black man, maybe in his 30s, standing outside collecting signatures. Being civic-minded and nosey, I approached him to see what the signatures were for. “I’m running for Congress and I am collecting signatures to get on the ballot,” he said.
Genna Gazelka, a 31-year-old who identifies as bi-gender, knows firsthand the pain of conversation therapy, calling it “harassment” and “torture.”
By the time you read this, the U.S. may be at war with Iran and/or World War III may have begun because we have the dumbest, most impulsive and selfish president in the history of America. Happy New Year.
This impeachment stuff is stressing me out. Donald Trump keeps screaming that this whole thing is very bad for the country. And he is right! Impeaching a president IS bad for the country.
My youngest sister just got married. To a man. Though she’s chosen the heterosexual lifestyle, I accept her.
