Or Maybe Not  »  Depressed Single Mother
I'm starting to get worried now. Maybe I shouldn't go to this group. There's the lesbian mother's group, and they meet on a Saturday afternoon, which I can't do because I've no babysitter. But there's another one called Rainbow Families that I could do, because it's for the children rather than the adults. They go on outings and such. So I'd be taking The Boy with me.I know it'd be good for The Boy. I know I'm a bad mother for even considering not going. But I feel ill. I can't stop shaking! I want to hide away. I think ...

The Mormon Church’s Gay Rights Announcement Was All About Religious Rights  »  Gay Rights - Do You Care2?
Leaders of the Mormon Church have announced their support for gay inclusive nondiscrimination legislation, but there’s a catch: they want a  religious right to continue to discriminate built in to any such legislation. The relatively rare press conference held Tuesday in Salt Lake City featured three members of the church’s governing Quorum of the Twelve […] ...

Oklahoma’s GOP is Waging a Shocking War on LGBT Adults and Kids  »  Gay Rights - Do You Care2?
Stoically anti-gay Oklahoma Representative Sally Kern is leading a charge in attacking Oklahoma’s LGBT community with not just one but three bills, including one that would protect therapists who try to convert gay people, including gay-identifying children. Rep. Kern, who notoriously once claimed that homosexuality is more dangerous than terrorism, introduced the legislation last week and while she hasn’t specifically […] ...

Email from a guy looking for a more exciting (sex) life  »  Things I can't tell boyfriend number 1
A couple of months ago, a reader sent me the following email:Dear GB,Recently I stumbled upon your blog and immediately was drawn to it. I've read through most of your posts, especially from your earlier years and somehow I can relate with a lot you have been writing.Actually, I think I might be in a somehow similar situation you were about ten years ago. I'm a gay engineer in my early 30s and have been in various relationships over the last ten years. The longest was over five years long, the current runs about 3 years. All of these relationships ...

Why Women are Intentionally Smearing Their Lipstick This Week  »  Gay Rights - Do You Care2?

All Yesterdays: A Cognitive Shift In How We Look At Dinosaurs  »  Moonlight Investigation
All Yesterdays will make you love dinosaurs anew. The way we view dinosaurs, and the way that artists have depicted them, has changed greatly over the last century (and even over the last decade). Though a child of the 1980s, my love for dinosaurs started with hand-me-down dinosaur books from the 1960s and 1970s which depicted swamp-dwelling brachiosaurs and bulky, slow-moving biped hunters. At 10 years old my view of dinosaurs was changed forever by Jurassic Park (the book and movie, I was a bit of a JP junkie). Fast moving, sleek, powerful dinosaurs were now all the rage ...

Bisexual women in the UK have worse mental health than lesbians  »  Bisexuality and Beyond
Bugged by “friends” who say that it is so much easier to be bi than lesbian? Well point them in the direction of this new research, which comes from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). Sexual health researchers from LSHTM analysed the responses to the 2007 Stonewall UK Women's Health Survey from 5,706 bisexual and lesbian women. Respondents were all living in the UK and aged 14 or over. Of these, 937 were bi-identified.The research showed that bi women were far more likely to experience poor mental health than lesbians. Lesbians, in turn, have worse mental ...

Would You Support GMOs that Can’t Spread to New Environments?  »  Gay Rights - Do You Care2?
One of the chief concerns among those who don’t support GMOs is the fear that the seeds of GMO foods may infiltrate non-GMO crops and spread with possibly devastating consequences. Researchers believe they now have a way of dramatically cutting that risk. Currently, genetically modified crops like soy and maize are carefully controlled to ensure they […] ...

Why the Feds Were Right to Spend Thousands Studying Gay Hookup Apps  »  Gay Rights - Do You Care2?
The Right is up in arms this month about the fact that the federal government gave researchers hundreds of thousands of dollars to study the behavior of gay men using smartphone hook-up apps — but not only was this a proper use of funds, it is vital for understanding modern sexual health trends. The National Institutes […] ...

'The language of shirkers and scroungers?' Talking about illness, disability and coalition welfare reform - Disability & Society  »  Through Myself and Back Again
Picture: protesters at today's 'Hardest Hit' march, carrying a sign which is partly written in Braille. It reads "We're being ---- by the government." Someone has written a translation of the Braille word below it: "shafted". Photo copyright Lisa Egan.Yesterday's discussion on the BBC's You and Yours was about disability, cuts and welfare reform, and featured Where's the Benefit's own Bendy Girl. Some contributors' comments offered a clear example of how attitudes to disability haven't really changed much since Victorian times - if not before. Some academic research recently published has been talking about how these ...

What Happened to the Nice, Fluffy Pope Francis?  »  Gay Rights - Do You Care2?
Pope Francis has been labelled a progressive Pope, but recent comments reveal that while his rhetoric might generally be softer, make no mistake: this Pope is still hardline where it counts for the Vatican faithful. Here are three instances where the Pope revealed his less-than-progressive side: 1. Gay Marriage is an Attack on the Family Pope Benedict […] ...

Huckabee Thinks It’s Totally Okay to Ignore the SCOTUS on Gay Marriage  »  Gay Rights - Do You Care2?
Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee has been very busy this past week telling everyone who will listen that it’s perfectly fine to ignore the Supreme Court if it rules in favor of gay marriage. Unsurprisingly, Huckabee is wrong but it’s worth explaining why because it gives us a clue about what might happen after a favorable […] ...

Post-holiday blues  »  Cornish Dreamer
I've been on holiday. Not a long holiday, just a week. It doesn't explain my absence, I know. My first thoughts this morning as I stepped into my cold, dark office, was that I didn't know what I was doing here. The feeling weighed down in my stomach like I'd swallowed some rocks. This isn't me right now. 'Me' is someone else - somewhere else - tasting life and doing things that are fascinating and, quite frankly, cool. Work does not make me feel alive and buzzing like my holiday in Sicily made me feel. Instead, I feel like I've hugged ...
