Do days of the week and time count again yet? Are we back to normal now? I think we are, and I’ll tell you why I think this: I have to call an electrician today. Truly, what says “the world is back to normal” like coordinating a home repair that will require you to be available for a six-hour window on a day of someone else’s choosing?
Happy Normal Week to you all! Can’t wait to eat salsa and broken tortilla chips while standing in my kitchen.
Queer as in F*ck You
U.S. Court Rules for Trump on Transgender Military Limits
The DC Circuit ruled today that the Trump administration's trans military ban should be allowed to move forward.
Thankfully, the trans ban still won't take effect. It is so blatantly unconstitutional that multiple other cases have been won blocking the ban — including ours. https://t.co/xVs8QVDUaV

I absolutely love Ellen but I really can’t get behind the whole Kevin Hart thing. Someone “upstairs” at Disney must be very interested in him hosting the Oscars
Well, it’s not really justice but Cyntoia Brown was granted clemency by the outgoing Tennessee governor.
Ahhh I wanted to love “Portraits of Queer Life in the Bible Belt” but my inner copyeditor can’t handle it! First off, it says “towns like Tulsa, Oklahoma, Nashville, and Tennessee” which makes it sound like Oklahoma and Tennessee are the names of towns or cities. Then, the story says that the project was exploring “right-wing middle America” which is not at all how I would describe Tulsa, Nashville, or Memphis (one of the places photographed). Nashville and Memphis are two of the 25 largest cities in the U.S. and consistently vote for the more liberal political candidates in national elections, and Tulsa is in the top 50 largest cities. Finally, the story mentions “the traditional Midwest” and “queerness in the Midwest” but Arkansas and Tennessee are two states that are definitely not in the Midwest region!
Salsa and broken tortilla chips on the other hand is one of my all time favorites.
I don’t know Tulsa or Nashville, but I totally agree with you about Memphis. I love that city.
My mom campaigned for Lauren Underwood! So exciting that she won.
(Ok, maybe that’s not a comment on the articles but every time I read anything about Lauren Underwood, especially in the national press, I get this surge of pride)
