A radical bi movement… would also acknowledge the way that patriarchy simultaneously privileges and hurts men. It would hold men accountable to their privilege while helping them dismantle it. Such a movement would remember that bisexuality gives men a “way out” of dominant masculinity, and would use this as an opportunity for creating subversive, antipatriarchal masculinities.

if i ever misgender you or use slang (bro, man, gurl, dude) that makes you feel even slightly uncomfortable please tell me because your gender identity and comfort is more important than any word i may use to refer to you

And thus begins Climbing the Date Palm, with a bisexual woman quite unexpectedly rescuing a bisexual man. She takes him home to the queen, where they discover that he’s got quite an adventure in store for them all. 
Queen Shulamit is eager to help Kaveh, the youngest prince of a neighboring country, when his father throws his engineer boyfriend in jail for leading his workers in protest over underpaid wages. But if she can’t find a peaceful solution that will keep everybody happy, the two countries could wind up at war.
Both bisexual characters are positively and sympathetically depicted, as are the lesbian and gay characters. (And the dragon.)
Kindle link here, Paperback version will be available on Amazon and other conventional bookstores by the end of the month, but you can pre-order it here from wildirisbooks, a locally-owned feminist bookstore where the B and the T in LGBTQ are definitely not silent. Sequel to The Second Mango.

I once went to the Renaissance Fair dressed as Marty McFly, and nobody got the joke.

That will forever be one of the most disappointing moments in my life.

This is my favorite photoset rn

I totally get this guy. A whole fair of nerds and no one got a awesome 80s pop culture reference. Shame. The faces are amazing.

No you have a cat. You just don’t own one.

Correction, you NEVER own a cat. Cat owns you; in this case you just don’t know it yet.

Anonymous asked: I don't know why, but for some reason, when I think of the Arthurian legends, my default Lancelot seems to be John Cleese. Even with the serious parts of the stories, it's still John Cleese. HELP.

I AM SORRY. I FEAR I CAN’T HELP YOU.

You will have to carry this burden in all the books you will read.

How baseball was meant to be played. Outside, during the day, in a barely half-full stadium. With an ominous Fortress of Death looming just beyond the third base wall, ready to incinerate anyone violating The Unwritten Rules of Baseball.
I bet Old Hoss was in there. Lurking.

You Can’t ‘Steal’ a Culture: In Defense of Cultural Appropriation

dynamicafrica:

You know that when you read an article titled “in defense of cultural appropriation” it’s going to be a load of crock. Not only does he miss out on the fact that cultural appropriation is dehumanizing, relies heavily on stereotypes, and in no way benefits the (majority) of the oppressed, telling oppressed people how to feel or respond to something they find oppressive is *wait for it* OPPRESSIVE.

Then he goes on to describe what a black woman is (not being one himself, totally legit). Oh, but he also does something people with pseudo-progressive views do: sees history through rose-tinted glasses. What period? The lovely cultural-swapping utopia that was the ‘Harlem Renaissance’. Stop already, jeez.

Also there is nothing like “oppression solidarity” in the vein that he puts it (black women and gay men identify with each other as fellow suffers of oppression - that’s total bull), that is a myth and awful approach to address structural and systemic ills. I’ve also never seen black women being ‘imitated’ by white gay men and thought, “wow, I’m feeling so flattered by this, do carry on.”

Don’t talk about respect if you’re going to right something that is the total opposite.

He isn’t the first one, either: http://aeon.co/magazine/world-views/why-cultures-shouldnt-just-steal-from-one-another/  At least he didn’t plagiarize this one.

When I think of David Warner being cast as the Doctor, I think of a pensive, quiet personality who actually doesn’t talk a whole let. This is probably because I started thinking of David Warner as the Doctor in days when it would have been Sylvester McCoy or Paul McGann he would have to have…
