I was reading this letter: www.afterellen.com/blog/dorothysnarker/an-open-letter-to-out-magazine and I came across the greatest picture ever. All my favorite ladies.



Also do you see a resemblance?

Obama did it. Or we did it I should say. THANK GOD.

America can get past its racism enough to elect a black president, it can make lives happier for animals, it can shoot down resolutions limiting abortion rights. But it apparently cannot get over its homophobia.

I cried as Obama spoke last night. I cried all the way from South America. From my little hostel room in the shady district of Surquillo that I rented for the sole purpose of watching the elections. I have hope for the future.

But I am also scared for the future. I cried this morning upon reading the election results after 4 hours of restless sleep. Three more states banned gay marriage and one state prohibited gay couples from adopting. My beloved state that I was so proud of last May decided that I am a second-class citizen not worthy of the same rights as everyone else.

I really hope Obama lives up to what he says. I am ready for change.

Now comes the hard part.

Edit-

Apparently hate and inequality bring about this reaction:



"Hooray! We will continue to be better and more worthy than homosexuals! They will never be equal to us!"

I feel like this situation sums up New York City... [Nov. 15th, 2007|07:11 pm]

Today I was on the 2 train to Brooklyn from Manhattan. A crazy possibly homeless man got on at Wall St. Throughout the rest of the ride he sang "My Humps" very loudly while banging the subway doors with all his might to keep a beat. Here is the part that is so New York about the whole situation: nobody showed a single reaction. The car was filled with mothers with babies, Wall Street suits, students, etc... Not one person cast a glance his way or looked around the car. The man I was sharing the pole with simply avoided my eye contact...a usual subway activity. I was just sitting there trying hard not to giggle to myself. Please imagine a bunch of people crammed into a tiny subway car and this man is getting his groove on to Fergie...screaming the lyrics and banging on the wall...and people stare straight ahead as if absolutely nothing is happening. It was hilarious and so characteristic of this city. I love it.

There's nothing like walking past a group of NYPD officers loitering around downtown and hearing phrases like "fucking Iraqis" surface from them. On a similar note, there was an officer at a Bedstuy precinct who came out as gay to his coworkers. He then had the pleasure of hearing his colleagues call him a "faggot" and laugh and call him names when he brought his partner to an NYPD function of some sort. His boss said he was going to move him to the West Village precinct to "be with his people". I'm really glad that a bunch of such well-educated, informed, and open-minded people patrol my city! Hooray for the NYPD!

Guys did you know that Kellogg created Corn Flakes as a cure for masturbation? It's true! Apparently back in the day when they thought masturbation was related to illness, they found some way to roll out the corn that was supposed to "cure" one of his or her masturbatory tendencies. Now you know!

Can I express some love for Dr. Karla Jay, my woman studies professor? She is probably the most amazing lesbian, woman, HUMAN BEING in the world. She told us a fun anecdote today about how she was on some talk show in the 70's coz she is this amazing pioneer in gay/lesbian rights. The talk show host accidentally introduced her as "Karla Gay" instead of "Karla Jay". She came out and told the host that his Freudian slip was showing. He then asked her, "why do you people call yourselves gay...you don't seem very happy", to which Dr. Jay replied, "Well I used to call myself a practicing homosexual, but I've had enough practice now". OHSNAP. I love this woman and I love her class. We get to learn all about the lesbian lives of Virginia Woolf, Gertrude Stein, Angelica Grimke, etc...it's amazing. Her humor doesn't seem to be appreciated by everyone in the class but I find it hilarious, so I sit back and chuckle to myself for three hours a week. Amazing.

I'm really smart and spilled nail polish all over the floor and my computer. So now it looks like I murdered someone on my hardwood floors, and it looks like Lappy has a sunburn.

Let me tell you something about my amazing roommate. My amazing roommate orders her food from Fresh Direct so it gets delivered to our door. My amazing roommate then takes the food that she orders and makes me delicious meals like risotto and chicken and green beans and salad and ice cream sundaes for dessert. Next week she's making homemade mashed potatoes and mac and cheese (like baked in a pan!) for us. I love living with my amazing roommate.

This semester has been kind of rocky thus far...emotionally and stuff. Maybe it's a "mid-college" crisis or something...I dunno. I'm going to visit Facey Face on Long Island this weekend, so that should be therapeutic.

I've been getting my things together for studying abroad in Peru next semester! Today I met with my crazy yet fabulous Spanish professor and she was helping me figure out which classes would transfer correctly and she ended up telling me about which tea to drink for altitude sickness when I go to Cuzco. It was probably a half hour conversation about tea. She's the greatest.

I'm taking lots of gay and Spanish classes...and some Italian too. They are all great classes except for, *shudder*, public speaking, a graduation requirement. I want to slit my wrists when I think about that class.

Two more classes until the weekend...I guess I should go pack.
