Edited for clarifying links to the AMO communication style post. Making peace is great. No one wants to be at war constantly. The battles are tiring, there’s always casualties, and often you’re stuck doing things that you may not be pleased with to win. And then there’s the people who confuse “making peace” with “stop […]


Let’s face facts. We are all human and we have limited levels of effort and energy to put into things. Activists are no different. An activist will be unable to address every issue in the world, no matter how worthy, due to these energy constraints. Feminism is, in and of itself, a specialization of egalitarianism […]


This has all been said before. But I might as well offer some repetition because people aren’t getting it. There’s been a whole lot of talk about marriage lately. I’m sure you’ve all noticed the flurry of activity on the part of the GLB…(t) community to get legal marriage extended to gay couples all over […]

This post was originally published May 05, 2009 here. Some people on WiG requested the letter I sent be put up because some of them were wondering if my inclination to speak very scientifically about things had a poor impact on how he took the information. There’s a good chunk science speak in the center, […]


This post was originally published May 4, 2009 here. Update: While I feel entirely justified in venting about this when comparing my letter to this email, a few people on WiG did raise a worry in me that my dad could find this blog. While I doubt it would change his supportiveness (I am effectively […]


This post was originally published May 03, 2009 here. Sometimes the trans community infuriates me. It isn’t the majority of the time and likely not even a majority of the people. But this vocal mid sized minority manages to regularly fuck up quite a few safe spaces I and many others have tried to stay […]
