    Religion and Identity; Sex and Spirituality; Penises and Breasts… 


    Christian church in Ethiopia

    Now I have no problem with the LGBTQ community in general and would like to think I could even qualify as the ‘A’ in ‘ally’, not ‘alley’, that sometimes puts the pickle on that little alphabetic sandwich, attached by wooden toothpick and a little smile to last a little while, even though I don’t deliberately seek gays out, though seem to usually have one or two as friends, BUT…

    …that doesn’t mean that I buy the entire narrative, especially the ‘born this way’ rap which was once de rigueur back in the days of last-line don’t-attack-the-victim defense, very quaint and old-fashioned charming now that ‘gender fluidity’ is all the rage, and there is increasingly little to be ashamed of in the first place, so no reason to claim DNA as a defense, if there is no offense, and given the lack of any proof of a ‘gay gene’ any more than a ‘basketball gene’ or even a ‘black gene’, really…

    …given that pigment genes tend to mix, somehow, much less a ‘backpacker gene’, but what concerns me is the identity with sexuality—any sexuality—in the first place. Is this all we’ve accomplished in the last ten thousand years, to come to blows (no pun) over who gets access to whose genitals, and by what means and for what purpose? I guess so. Strike one for civilization, i.e. city-fication.

    We were better off in the wild, where queer was queer, and that was that, no big deal and nothing to fear. Now we’re forced to draw the lines of decency, circling the wagons, dotting ‘I’s and crossing ‘T’s, consulting the prophets and taking a loss.  What a waste of time, and what a loss of dignity, that we’re so busy greasing the wheels (pun) of our lower chakras, that we have no time for the larger questions with the trickier answers, enigmas all wrapped up in riddles and garnished with mysteries left to lightly ferment… (More …)

    Religio-Politics: Queer, Questioning, and the Quid Pro Quo (No, I’m not gay)… 

    L-G-B-T… wait for it… Q! That’s the single letter that strikes fear in the hearts of many conservatives, tea-partiers, ‘publicans, and other assorted sinners, but not same-sexers, for whom that ‘Q’, for questioning—or queer—speaks volumes louder than any SCOTUS or any scrotum ever could. Genetic ‘questioning’ does not fill volumes in the field of microbiology….

    No, this is the Golden Age of Homosexuality, by any measure, as now the facade of genetic responsibility and/or deniability can be dropped, and we can continue our sexual experimentation forthwith, limited only by our imaginations—whoopee! Order me a case of KY Jelly tout de suite… ‘Gender-fluid’ is the hottest buzzword in sexuality today, and basically indicate that many of us could go either way—depending, presumably, on mood, fashion, or followings… (More …)

      Ha, R and I went to do a STORYCORPS interview for NPR. they gave us papers to sign and asked for our gender, r chose bi, i chose queer. what does it matter. yes, plenty of people are still getting laid. Why, I laid myself, just yesterday morning, does that count? as for PDAs, you must’ve forgotten our own, at JSU, decades ago, we PDAed around every corner…….
