as a scream behind closed doors

and they called me gentle and sweet and beautiful

Unmistakable, inexcusable erasure (and I don't mean the awesome gay electronica duo that practically soundtracked my college years)

I Don’t Know Why It Irks Me…it Just Does (May 2015)

My wife and I have been married for almost twenty years, and we rarely ever agree on anything. One thing she always seems to dismiss is my ranting about things that irk me, which is why I use this blog as my pallet for irks and rants. 899 more words

Reactionary Tea Party gov in Kansas does not understand how civil rights progress works

GRRRRR.  “HER unilateral action was bad, but MINE is good!” says asshole governor, repealing his predecessor’s protections for state’s queer public employees. More proof that the Right’s actions are rooted in far baser and more hateful motivations than mere “free market” and “corporate rights”… neither this move nor his Dem predecessor’s affect private enterprise — only taxpayer-funded jobs. 81 more words
