A woman on the street just waved at me, so I waved back, just out of random friendliness. Then it turned out she thought I was a friend of hers. A female friend. It’s the second time in a couple weeks that I’ve been read as female by a stranger. It’s interesting to me since I don’t make any effort to pass as a woman.
Anonymous asked: hello, a sensitive question (or so it feels to me and I hope not insulting or hurtful). someone i care about has just told me that they are a cross dresser not in those words he said "i like to dress up in women's clothes" i am confused because he is married and his wife knows and excepts this. what does this mean? are transgender and cross dressing the same? does this make him a...
Cameron Esposito: Tell your rape jokes. Expect to... →
cameronesposito: Seems like every 6 months or so - maybe once a year - there is a debate about rape jokes. Here’s how it goes: A dude tells jokes about rape or deals with hecklers in way that includes rape. A woman hears these jokes or is the heckler. She publicly states that she is upset or didn’t like the joke… Cameron is the bestest.

There was another brouhaha today on Tumblr where one trans* person took it upon himself to declare what people are or aren’t trans* again. I thought about responding to it, but then I just went right on living my life.

The NBCUniversal Experience →
rheabutcher: Go behind the scenes of Universal’s film legacy in this interactive exhibit featuring authentic props, wardrobe and artifacts! Oh! The Back To The Future “A” car has been restored! They made a time machine….out of a Delorean! Now I have a reason to go to Universal. Who’s with me??? I’ll totally go if its a weekend. Been wanting to for a while!
BTW, the name of the planet in the opening sequence of Star Trek: Into Darkness is “Nibiru.” And anyone who has seen the movie and knows what happens there, who also has read any of the “Ancient Astrononaut/Alien” theory beliefs about Nibiru hopefully will appreciate what is a truly stellar subtle joke.

Yesterday I was fully intending to let this go, and I’ve really debated if I want to continue this argument any longer, but I just can’t let it sit because I really, really hate it when people put words in my mouth and put positions on me that I never said and that I don’t believe. So, I’ve included the quotes below, because I honestly think that anyone being rational here...
run-youcleverboyand-remember: If you ask Whovians what’s just happened.. For sure. And I love it! What I also love are the fanboys on message boards who have already decided they know what it means and are being indignant to anyone who doesn’t agree that their theories are FACT.

I need to do that because I’m seriously developing some mild insomnia. I don’t want to take...

themymblesdaughter: I actually love Boca burgers and also that Quorn stuff. The drawback is that, of course, it’s an extremely processed food. But it’s delicious. Man, now I want some Quorn. And why is it called Quorn anyway when it’s a mycoprotein? That aside, I enjoy that stuff not because I’m replacing meat. I’m certainly not doing that. I eat it because it tastes good on its own. If...

inthecolliednight: “Well why do you want a substitute for something you don’t want to eat in the first place?” Oh man! I actually just started working on a bit onstage about this. I eat meat but I’ve never understood why people give vegetarians or vegans a hard time for eating meat substitutes. First off, why does it matter to you what someone else eats, like how does a morningstar...
Just finished The Name of the Doctor, and I squealed a “What?!?” that would do David Tennant proud.
It’s not that I don’t think people have a legitimate reason to be angry at the, intentional or not, racial issues with the casting choices for the new Star Trek movie, I just wish that they’d waited till the movie had been open a few more days or at least begun their posts with a spoiler alert.
