+ An incredibly compelling essay by a transgendered woman in The New York Times: “Is my Marriage Gay?”
“I’ve been legally female since 2002, although the definition of what makes someone “legally” male or female is part of what makes this issue so unwieldy. How do we define legal gender? By chromosomes? By genitalia? By spirit? By whether one asks directions when lost? … Gender involves a lot of gray area. And efforts to legislate a binary truth upon the wide spectrum of gender have proven only how elusive sexual identity can be.”

Remember when I interviewed Jenn from Girl in a Coma and she told me about all the decades she likes? You’re in for a treat cos Girl in a Coma’s new single “Static Mind” is streaming here. “Static Mind” reminds me a lot of the first album, in terms of the mix between Nina’s sticky-sweet vocals and distorted, guitar-driven rhythms.. Actually, I think it’s the new record’s “Say.”
If Team Autostraddle was reincarnated, I think we might end up being lizards like these little guys (or should I say girls).
The May issue of Mankind Mag is probably my favorite yet. It’s so… pretty. Photography from Denise Grünstein, a cute, inspiring interview with PESQUEIRA [love!], and art by Angela Stasio makes it the best $1.99 you’ll spend all day.
