Around the Blogosphere - Gay Interests

Just a little list of blogs that I found intriguing on topics that touch on gay interests directly or indirectly
LANGUAGE LOG A discussion on the Think B4 You Speak campaign.
BUTCHVOICES.com A "coming together to take a closer look at the shared experiences of Butches, Studs, AGs, Doms, Tombois, and other transmasculine identities"
QUEERTY And an article about race relations in the LGBT community
MY MOTHER'S LESBIAN JEWISH WICCAN WEDDING Come on, doncha want to read about this? The play was a huge hit at Canada's Fringe Festival this year. One more reason to love Canada.
A REVIEW of a play that touches on the religious differences of a gay couple.

Well, that's my little list of blogs.
Let me know what you think of them and if you have one of your own to share.

Gosh, honey, that is quite a collection. I was going to comment on B4 you speak, but there were a zillion comments already, and I didn't suppose anyone really wanted to hear from me that it was my understanding that "gypsy" derived from the French "Egyptie," all those Egyptian refugees after Napoleon's invasion. But is it true? I wasn't there. Sounds right, though, doesn't it?

Hi Victor
The part of course that got me was also the terms gyp and on a personal basis, the jew down expression. That one really hist home since when we lived in the South, the expression was so common no one thought anything about it. I mean, don't all Jews jew folks down?
What was scary to me is that it's like subliminal advertising. You don't know why you want it, you just do. You don't know why you think this way...you just do
Thanks for posting

Terms get lost in the mists of time, like upper drawer and top shelf, only some of them are degoratory and we have no idea they are.
Great articles.

I wish tho, the guy writing about color in the GLBT community hadn't been so vague, I would have loved some examples of say...black community names of gay... or how black communities look at being gay... that sort of stuff.
Instead, it was all about white priviledge, which I'm familiar with and recognize, but without and contrasting examples to bring his points home.

Jeanne said...

I agree, Lynn. I did think he was poiting fingers but show me what you mean, please.
Still that article and the one from ButchVoices were interesting and revealing as far as it went
Thanks for commenting

Oh great, Jeanne, now you've handed me even more ways to waste my time! ;-)

Queerty's a trip, isn't it? GLBT news from all over the world, eye candy every day, and comments that are invariably worth a few chuckles (and also add words to my vocabulary).

Yeah, Jeanne, what KZ said. I click on a link, then of course can't be satisfied with just taking a gander at the article you point out. No, I have to putter around, looking at pix of men, articles about writers and Alzheimer's, lesbian Wicca weddings...

Anyway - this was fun!

Jeanne said...

Yeah, addictive stuff...
Glad you enjoyed
