Trauma, Sex and Bi Women

Authored by: Shiri Eisner * Trigger warning: explicit discussion of sexual harassment and sexual violence. Imagine a 14-year-old girl, just beginning her 9th grade. Her classmates know that she’s bisexual – she’s told them about it, assuming that (like her) everyone else is also accepting.

Bisexuality, Sin and Self-destruction

The Meaning of Marriage: In Pursuit of Justice

Follow more from Robyn here –> Gay Girl Revolution Is love the basis for every marriage? Is that why Ireland’s deputy head of government, Eamon Gilmore, in support of marriage equality, publicly announced that he did not think it was the job of the state to “determine who people should fall in love with, or who they should spend their lives with”?

Maybe if I jerk off over this picture enough times I'll start to look like it?

Imposter Boy

I don’t know about you but I am sick and tired of our culture’s definition of ‘Man’. Look around at all the men on posters and billboards, in music videos and movies, in books and magazines, and what do you see?
