Welcome once again to the Activist Modus Operandi Series. I’m sure you all remember the first AMO post I wrote, with its overall summary of the methods of communication. (If not, you should definitely read it. This material is not 101 and it expands off of the previous.) This particular post will go more in […]


Guest post from Staticnonsense: Why hello there! I am a being, having been born into existence. But since that is a very long way to address me, you can simply refer to me as Static Nonsense or SN. I like pandas, kitties, Pixy Sticks and Linux. On an actual serious note, I am a young […]


There’s a saying out there. “Don’t toss the baby out with the bathwater.” There’s another saying out there. “Carpets get walked on.” Now you’re probably wondering why I’m talking about babies, bathwater and carpets. Well I’m not pregnant (hi, no uterus here), I tend to take showers (although a long soak is glorious) and I […]


This post has been crossposted as a guest post at Questioning Transphobia here. There was an incident a few weeks ago. It didn’t happen to my face but it still was a direct invasion of my privacy. First, some background: If you don’t know me, I’m polyamorous. I date, love and am intimate with multiple […]


Addendum: After more recent events with Melissa McEwan’s whiny apologism for feminism trying to morally mandate us out of existance and pathetic privilege mongering, as well as her entire site engaging in apologism for her, I finally came to the realization that feminism is fucked as a movement. The rot is in the core, there’s […]


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 post has been guest posted at Harlot’s Parlour Chasers. Admirers. Fetishists. Words that often create a very emotional response from trans folk and many other groups for whom such things apply to. If you’re not in the know (and you probably aren’t, considering my audience) there’s a bit of explaining to do here. Let’s […]


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 […]


Mild Clarification: Some people were a bit confused and thought that conceptual sexuality and physical sexuality are invariably separate. Actually, it’s quite possible to have both. So say if you were attracted to breasts and vagina only, but also could only find folks who are women attractive (so say, you’d not find a pre op/pre […]
