Out and Proud

Out and Proud

It has taken me quite a while to wrap my head around the phrase “out and proud”. I always used to think of being gay as something that was a natural part of you, so that being proud of it made just about as much sense to me as being proud of having blue eyes. […]

Such unions involved people assigned female at birth (AFAB) living and dressing as men in order to marry women, sometimes for love and sometimes, allegedly, for money. Although “lesbian”, “transgender” and “transvestite” were not established identities in […]

Revenge of the porn

Revenge of the porn

It’s a common scenario at a concert with thousands of punters who are young, dumb and horny. A photo depicting a public indiscretion involving two people taken at an Eminem gig at Slane Castle in Ireland has been circulating the Internet for a couple of days. One person is on their knees, and the other is pantsless. It’s not hard to figure out the gender of each participant, and to discern the subsequent level of respect afforded to the each of them by online arbiters of morality.
