especially since the back up is hurt and they're more or less guaranteed a playoff spot if they beat ND this weekend. It's embarrassing for me to wear my college sweater right now. I miss Bobby Bowden. Jimbo Fisher seems to really encourage this shitty football culture we have now (not that it wasn't happening before,… » 10/16/14 7:57pm Thursday 7:57pm

As a trans woman, I think it's absolute bullshit when trans men stay in women's colleges, especially since trans women have such a difficult time getting in to women's colleges. I know it might feel safer, but once they transition, they become dudes they get the benefits of male privilege. Genderqueer and genderfluid… » 10/16/14 4:18pm Thursday 4:18pm

I've not been to Abu Dhabi, but having worked in Dubai and Sharjah, I'd go with Dubai (well, in either case I'd live in Dubai). Sharjah is a little more conservative and there are less westerners milling around than in Dubai. I've only worked in either place for short periods of time (11 days in Dubai and 6 in… » 10/09/14 4:08pm 10/09/14 4:08pm

As a trans person, I fully endorse having a non-trans person play the role of someone just starting transition. A lot of older trans people look pretty much exactly how Jeffery Tambor looked and all of the other trans characters were played by actual trans people. I think they did a really good job of showing part of… » 10/06/14 10:55pm 10/06/14 10:55pm

I love the fall. I'm a contemplative person and fall weather always puts me in a thoughtful mood. Also, I work seasonally and the summer is always very intense for me. Fall is a time where I get to slowdown and relax a little. Most importantly, though, fall fashion is the best fashion for me. Fall colors go really… » 9/23/14 3:18pm 9/23/14 3:18pm

Is it really too much to ask? (dating bullshit)

I'm not going to bullshit around with false modesty: I'm smart, funny, bilingual, a decent conversationalist, with an interesting job, tales of adventure and I'm not completely terrible looking. Is it really too much to ask to have sex with someone else who is also smart, funny, interesting and not terrible looking?… » 9/18/14 3:50pm 9/18/14 3:50pm

I agree too. I mean, I don't believe in stuff. I don't need a leader to tell me what not to believe in. The only place where it would be nice to be organized is in a political context as a counterweight to religious influence in government. » 9/12/14 2:48pm 9/12/14 2:48pm

We get them in Boulder too. They show up with their dogs and their smelly clothes and camp out on the pedestrian mall panhandling. Most of them are crust, or anarcho punks who want to 'not be a part of the system' while simultaneously mooching off of the people who are. In other words, while some of them have… » 9/12/14 2:27pm 9/12/14 2:27pm
