Just a couple of things that made me sad this week: TransphobiaandBiphobiaAnd anyone heard of the music of Adhamh Roland?Also on my twitter (http://twitter.com/dandyxands) I spent most of the Day of Silence telling stories of my queer childhood...uh you'd have to dig through the tweets now though but it's entertaining.
And...not sure why that second paragraph looks so weird but yeah.
I put a piece of yesterday about a new site from Focus on the Family called True Tolerance that they put up for the National Day of Silence; a site that uses hate speech and scare tactics to spread the message that "gay bashing" is really A-OK, as long as the people who are bullying, harassing, and tormenting the queer population are conservatives. It's pretty fucked up.Here's the link:http://menstrualpoetry.com/true-toleranceThank you so much for the opportunity to plug our work; I really appreciate it.

I started blogging this week in order to rant about #Amazonfail...the most pertinent posts are http://nadiacooke.wordpress.com/2009/04/13/on-amazonfail/ and http://nadiacooke.wordpress.com/2009/04/14/on-the-resolution-of-amazonfail/And I agree with Holly--thanks for letting us plug! I need people to start reading my blog so I have an excuse to continue. ;)

On my blog, I posted yet more evidence that #amazonfail was not a glitch, nor was it an incident that began or ended on the weekend of April 12. Rather it apparently is part of an ongoing attempt by Amazon to exploit and discriminate against LGBTQ authors.

Here's my article on Rick Warren for the Blog Against Theocracy.
I’ve been reading a lot of queer zines –especially ones by transgender and genderqueer authors– and I linked to my favorites:Queer ZinesThe creators think it’s important to preserve these zines “because of what they represented – a look at queers’ lives, stories, and histories that are seldom visible through mainstream media.” They also make for great reads: zines are usually very personal and sincere, poetic, and sometimes funny. Plus they delight the senses, with all the nice pictures and typography.
With all the talk about the Prop 8 decision coming soon, I decided to take a worst-case-scenario approach and think about what would happen if the court ruled against us. As it turns out, there might be a silver lining to the cloud. I'm not sure how popular my opinion will be, but I decided to share my editorial anyway:Why Losing the Proposition 8 Challenge in California Might Be a Good Thing
