Seventeen. Sleepy. Queer as a three dollar bill.

On Excavating a 21st-Century Working-Class Female's Workplace

@mouthalmighty I loved the footnotes. That with the mention of "mental calisthenics" really reminded me of David Foster Wallace. (is that a juicebox thing to say? ahhhh)

On Marriage, the Word "Queer," and "Is My Boyfriend Gay?"

@Lily Rowan Yeah, but you can use it as an adjective now.

I take issue with using "queer" as a catch-all term for all GSM because, uh, not everyone who is a GSM is queer. Intersex people aren't queer by virtue of being intersex. Hetero asexual people aren't either.
I wrote a whole post about this on my tumblr ("BOOO GET OF THE STAGE")

On Marriage, the Word "Queer," and "Is My Boyfriend Gay?"

@Diana My dad is effing in love with both Madonna and Annie Lennox, and all his apartment decor is from Pier 1 Imports, WHOSE MEMBERSHIP CARD IS ON HIS KEYCHAIN. He is also like 220 pounds of muscle and used to go camping alone in the desert and drinks whiskey and is unabashedly comfortable in his masculinity and straightness.

On Marriage, the Word "Queer," and "Is My Boyfriend Gay?"

@Lily Rowan I recently discovered The Best Term Ever, which gets ride of the entire ridiculous alphabet soup problem (there's also QUILTBABPIPE which includes Pansexual people, among others.)

GSM = Gender and Sexual Minorities. Gay people! Trans people! Polysexual people! Non-binary people! Asexual people! We don't need a million billion letters, just three! Hooray!
