Lady Gaga, Intersex, and The Real World vs. The...
Lisa Harvey at Questioning Transphobia wrote a great blog post on the rumors about Lady Gaga being intersex. Lisa articulates pretty much all of my feelings on the subject way more eloquently than I could hope to. Take a gander, please. Parts of the “Telephone” video are clearly intended to be a direct response to the intersex rumors. Namely: The beginning of the video, where the...

Looking at my old journals tonight, I ran across an entry I wrote almost exactly a year ago (March 11th, 2009), where I talked about Things I Needed & Wanted. At the time, the list felt scary to write, because the things I wanted meant a major shift from where my life was.

Also various friends have been having weird &...
