jambos6: This explains why the mediocrities of Red State America flock to Palin and her many distinguished life failures for these Tea Party GOP brigands seek not a philosopher king, but rather an intellectually bereft political Whore of Babylon who validates all of the short comings inherent in White Populism. Yes! *fist pump*

This is a long post. TAKEN FROM AND EVEN LONGER ESSAY THAT SHOULD BE READ In its ENTIRETY But trust me, it is good.

Please be aware that I am writing this criticism not as an outsider, but as a genderqueer person...
Bilerico | Lady Gaga Is Not an Ally to Our...
Lady Gaga is not an ally to the LGBT community. She is an out bisexual, and therefore is a member of the community. And yet, time and time again, I see her described in the (LGBT) press as an “ally” or “friend”, whenever she does her activist thing. Elton John does a lot of activism too, but I have never once seen him described as “an ally to the LGBT...

Evan Rachel Wood, heretofore primarily know as an actress on “True Blood”, as doing the HBO remake of “Mildred Pierce” and as having been Marilyn Manson’s teen dream lover back in the day (when she was just a teenybopper and he was in almost 40) has “officially” come out as a romantic, bisexual, butch, androgynous, type person.

Sorry Haters: most of the LGBT people in the USA...
These statistics fly in the face of what many people would have you believe — that bisexuals are an insignificant subgroup of the LGBT community that doesn’t merit having their different perspective recognized. Clearly, if the LGBT community wants to maximize its political muscle then it needs to give greater weight to these findings and look for ways to activate these often hidden...
"Bisexual erasure" erased! GLAAD makes us glad!
Thank you GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation)! Some alert people noticed a bit of “bisexual erasure” going on. It was (politely) pointed out. Today GLAAD fixed it! Hooray for Speaking Up and for Getting Things Done.

If we want equality, we need to take action!
robynochs: New data: “96.5% of LGBT adults in the US do NOT donate to LGBT organizations.” Ending homo/bi/transphobia is expensive. This makes me very sad. Advocate for equality. GIVE $ NOW! Google “equality + your state” or give to one of the national orgs or to your community center. If you only have a few dollars to give, then give a few dollars. Please! If we want equality, we need to take...
When Did Girls Start Wearing Pink?
Every generation brings a new definition of masculinity and femininity that manifests itself in children’s dress How did we end up with two “teams”—boys in blue and girls in pink? “It’s really a story of what happened to neutral clothing,” says Paoletti, who has explored the meaning of children’s clothing for 30 years. For centuries, she says, children wore dainty white dresses up to age 6....

Biphobia is the New Black
In 2009, I unknowingly fell in love with a bisexual man. He was my best friend, a dynamic community leader, and passionate about tackling social issues related to communities of color. His energy was infectious, re-inspiring my activism, and elevating my thoughts to the real potential of social change. Like an Audre Lorde quote, our friendship went from personal to political and I found myself...

We have been told we do not exist, we have been told we must fit ourselves into either the “straight” or “gay/lesbian” boxes, during those bewildering moments when the culture suddenly decides to find us “chic” we are then told that our life-long sexual orientation is something we are doing to be cool … Recently, the negative feelings against us poured out in their rawest...
