You have put together some fantastic resources for the gay community, thanks for providing me with new material. I head a club at my local college called Onward. It’s a group of volunteers that work with all sorts of different organizations that help battered women. We want to bring light to the fact that domestic abuse does happen in gay relationships as well. I wanted to share this page I found very useful on it:

As I was browsing the thought occurred to me that other students may also find it a useful addition to your resources.

{{ You have put together some fantastic resources for the gay community, thanks for providing me with new material. I head a club at my local college called Les Do It. }}

What an honor, Evelyn! It’s the occasional message of gratitude I receive, that inspires me to create more articles, and maintain my gay-bible site. And one of the main reasons I do this, is to inspire others, and provide them with new material.

Strange thing this: only three days ago did I receive a potentially threatening email…now, yours more than makes up for that. You arrived like an angel swooping down from the sky, to save my day!

{{ Its a group of volunteers that work with all sorts of different organizations that help battered women. }}

Also a noble cause…if only there were more people in the world like yourself! Machismo swaggering disgusts me…it’s the root of all violence.

{{ We want to bring light to the fact that domestic abuse does happen in gay relationships as well. }}

Indeed it does…I’ve walked out on many a new relationship, due to this.

{{ I wanted to share this page I found very useful As I was browsing the thought occurred to me that other students may also find it a useful addition to your resources. }}

Thanks immensely, Evelyn…I will soon provide a link to that page, from my blog, which is shown in the signature below.

Cheers! Please feel free to contact me on any future projects; perhaps I can be of service to your important work.

Zeke-

I’m so sorry that you receive threatening email, I’ve dealt with my fair share too and it just boggles my mind. Close-minded people with no sense of compassion whose only sense of security is what the bible tells them scare me the most. I fear for our world and our youth when people like that are involved. Where I live I deal with it way too often and it’s like beating a dead horse trying to talk sense into any of them. Thank YOU for the kind words about our group and sorry too to hear about your past not-so-fun relationships, so glad to hear they are in the past.

I got a chance to look over your blog a bit and I love your style. I’m afraid some of your computer related jargon flies above my head but I love reading your poems and rants – (My Salute To Women’s Suffrage and Lesbian Pride) <~ Amazing. and THANKS!!

Keep up the awesome posts :-D

I’m turning that incident into something positive…well, as positive as I can make it…I’m making it my latest blog entry. It is actually quite intriguing, as it involves the murder of a crazed, drugged black gay person, by a policeman…who was the partner of the first (out) gay cop to die in the line of duty. I won’t say any more, the blog will tell all.

{{ I fear for our world and our youth when people like that are involved. }}

And well you should, sorry to agree.

{{ Where I live I deal with it way too often and it’s like beating a dead horse trying to talk sense into any of them. }}

I hope you carry pepper spray. These troglodytes are downright wicked. They use the name of their god to justify bashing and murder. It sickens me that we remain with a gov’t that is essentially homophobic, and thus affirms the bashers.

{{ Thank YOU for the kind words about our group }}

I’m sure you’ve earned them, Evelyn. I don’t know how women manage to remain so centered and compassionate, in the face of a stupidly aggressive, macho society. day in, day out. I’m surprised more haven’t taken a gun to idiots who cop a feel on a bus, train, streets, etc….thinking it’s their god-given right as a male.

{{ sorry too to hear about your past not-so-fun relationships, so glad to hear they are in the past. }}

We tend to forget that, in spite of our progress, the majority of gays remain single for their entire lives. The male partner violence is of course homophobically inspired…usually, the other guy tries to assert his masculine superiority on me…claiming his bisexuality makes him better than me, who is 100% gay. Men in Amerika are pressured to the extreme, to play hetero/macho…doesn’t matter if they themselves are gay. In this regressive cycle, it is more difficult than ever, to find men who have risen above this base attitude. Then of course, there’s the money issue…and I’ve been living on just a disability stipend most of my life…so I just don’t get to play the dating game. I’m 60 now, anyway, so what the hey.

{{ I got a chance to look over your blog a bit and I love your style. }}

So glad you do…I hope to benefit my readers in various ways: psychologically, for one.

{{ I’ve afraid some of you computer related jargon flies above my head }}

Oh, that’s okay, I can’t expect everyone to like everything I like. Computers are one of my favorite hobbies…specifically, the computer underground/counterculture that sprang up in the 80s. You might enjoy my queer cyberpunk tale: “Security Matters & Anti Matters“. A really big dose of my particularly bizarre style.

{{ but I love reading your poems and rants – (My Salute To Women’s Suffrage and Lesbian Pride) }}

Flattery will get you *everywhere*! :)

{{ Keep up the awesome posts :-D }}

Wow, you have a great gift of injecting a positive spirit in people when they most need it, so:

RIGHT BACK AT YA, EVELYN!

Cheers!

Capture Those Bazongas!

April 29, 2010

Now, see? That’s exactly what I mean about you heterocentric cavemen! Using the female form to sell any product whatsoever, under the Sun and Even Elsewhere. This is a perverted way to think of Our Fairer Sex (whether straight or queer), 51% of our species Homo Sapiens…that is: The Not-So-Silent-Anymore Majority! These ads encourage a most ugly image of all women–every single female on the planet including generations as yet unborn–as whores, prostitutes for Amerikan Kapitalistic Dogma.

Now just look at that floozy advertisement: which a few frames I managed to grab off the Maximumedge (webmail) logout page. The actual ad is probably 10 or more different frames. (I first attempted to download it with the usual r-click, but alas it failed.)

Here we have your stereotype blonde bimbo, flashing her breasts up and down in a most voluptuous manner, while a dirty old man’s hand grabs hopefully at the Treasure Chest. The heart icon itself is simply a distraction to trick you into perceiving the ad as “innocent”. Or, more than likely, to give you the perfect excuse should you be questioned as to why you were smiling at the Cyber Siren. And should anyone really challenge you, you’d simply say: “Oh you’re making too much of this!”

What gives it away for me, is that hand. Not a young man’s hand by any means. Nope, it’s not even a hand possessing flesh. It is the hand of a skeleton. It may even be the hand of the Grim Reaper Himself! (Probably isn’t, but it may as well be, when one considers the karmic implications of this bitty bawdy babolicious blinking booby banner. Someone must have sold his soul to come up with such an ad. Indeed! They’re a penny a dozen.)

But is this not morally corrupt to regard any human being as solely (or most importantly) as a sex object? It would seem such objectification in a hard-core commercialized society (as Amerika has become), gives major influence towards male inspiration to intimidate, terrorize, bash, and rape, Our Better Half, The Feminine Majority.

This is beyond bad taste. This is brutal.

This is my gift for Mother’s Day 2010: My Salute To Women’s Suffrage and Lesbian Pride.

3 Cheers For Denise

March 12, 2010



Regarding Denise Jameson’s letter “Sexism Against Women in the Castro“: Bravo! Though male (gay and Caucasian to boot), I couldn’t agree with you more. My hope as an independent activist since 1973, was for the Castro to become a shining example to the world of multicultural harmony in an LGBT milieu…putting your average heterosexual society to shame. Sadly, this has not happened (yet) and, in my own jaded perception, the Castro has been for way too many years, a haven to Nazi-macho white male leather cabals. Not only are they for the most part misogynistic, but racist, exclusionary, and anti-progressive as well.

While I still live in the Castro, I have not ever felt welcome here in my own neighborhood since, oh, well, around 1985 or so. The lack of interest and concern towards Ms. Jameson by bar owners is no surprise to me…and I don’t know how you can make a dent in this armor of callous incivility. But one idea hatched in my head this morning, which inspired me to write this letter:

Organize a Lesbian’s Night Out once a week, not necessarily at the same bar: perhaps rotate through all the Castro bars. I actually think the business you bring would be most welcome in these tough economic times. Those idiot pigs who resent any significant female presence will be free to take their hateful egos to any number of other watering holes. They would even know which bars to avoid, as Lesbian’s Night Out would become part of our local events calendar. Who needs these bigoted dipwads anyway? Two suggestions though:

1) Why not help our rainbow dream come true, by also founding a “Multicultural Night Out” for queers of color, Pacific Islanders, Asians, Native Americans, and so on? Not asking you, Denise, to burden you with more than one vital cause; just putting this out in the gay ether, in hopes of inspiring interested parties. Both projects could become part of a greater movement: “Take Back The Castro.” It would certainly make this lonely old activist queer feel at home once more, after many years living in spiritual exile!

2) Alcoholism needs to become far less of an influence in our social life and fund raising. No civil rights revolution was ever won on the backs of substance abuse of any kind. So do your girlfriends a big favor: encourage everyone to order non-alcoholic beverages, and increase the use of marijuana as a more healthful social lubrication. I hope that eventually, bar drinks will morph into exotic beverages based on cannabis infusions, and flavorful fruit juices, herbal teas and coffees. (Another dream I have, silly me, is to become the world’s first Coffee/Tea Barrista And Herbal Dispenser IN A GAY BAR.)

Much success to you, Denise Jameson, in your rightful cause for sisterhood and cultural harmony here in the Castro. Perhaps you are destined to be a leader in getting our gay neighborhood to finally grow up. Someone’s gotta do it!

Sinqueerly,
