On Being "The Straight One," The Basics Of Butt Stuff, And Talking To Your Kids

I'm really starting to feel like the world would be a better place if all pamphlets regarding anything remotely related to sexuality/relationships/identity were just outsourced to AACQ & then made mandatory for all human beings to read.

On A Joke, A Story

this was heartbreaking & lovely. & though it sounds as if it's a lost cause, I hope that someday your mom ends up managing to get help--for her own sake, at least.

On The Ultimate Guide To Wearing A Jumpsuit

if you can do that thing where you put one arm over your shoulder and the other up from your back and can clasp your hands together

I cannot do that thing & I hope none of my coworkers were looking over at me just now when I tried.

On 32 Feelings & Then Some: An Inquiry into the Non-Legacy of Ani DiFranco

I was just wondering about this the other day! my feels aren't as Ani-aligned as they once were, but I still have a lot of love for those old songs, & it pains me that to The Youth of Today, she's now "that has-been singer who totally botched her apology for trying to host a retreat on a former plantation." (not that she shouldn't be held accountable for that nonsense--she absolutely should, & I'm super disappointed about how she handled it--but it's sad to me that her current "relevance" is more about that than about her legitimately great back catalog.)

@Anna Fitz thank you!! added to my reading list (I love good Chappelle profiles almost as much as I love good Morrison profiles).
