Welcome to any listeners from Air America who are popping over here after my interview on Nicole Sandler’s show. Here’s a link to the article by Jenny Boylan from the NYT.
I’d like to reiterate that the trans community, for the most part, is very, very invested in making sure same sex marriage becomes legal everywhere. For couples like us, & other (trans) couples unlike us, it would bring a huge collective sigh of relief.
The article itself is kind of teh suck, but the comments are interesting.
A young boy who acts in a feminine way isn’t a faggot; he’s a sissy.
Still, it’s interesting to see a conversation about male genders from another community’s POV.
I’ll be on Air America Live tomorrow, 12:15 PM EST, talking about my unusual marriage, & yes, there is a live feed.
(Thanks to Jenny Boylan for the opportunity!)
Well then. Honestly, what do you say? My parents and my siblings must feel *really* old today, since I’m the youngest of the family.
But as my dad always said, it’s not like the only other option is any good, so you may as well grow old.
Thanks all for the lovely gifts and well wishes and your support in these recent years. To 50! To Cronedom! (I am glad that we get to do this milestone together, at least. Having the same bday as your partner is sometimes annoying, but this year, it’s a relief.)
While I was in Milwaukee, I did an interview for a local paper and entirely forgot to mention it. It’s a little more recent then a million others I’ve done, so it might answer some questions about what the hell I’m doing in WI & other mysteries of life. (I especially love the bit about how my “writing exudes a Midwestern no-nonsense practicality.”)
I liked it.
Nice interview with a genderqueer mom on Bilerico today.
