Date a Boy Who Travels

via Ramon Stoppelenburg @ Hereigoagainonmyown.com Date a boy who treasures experience over toys, a hand-woven bracelet over a Rolex. Date the boy who scoffs when he hears the words, “vacation”, “all-inclusive”, or “resort”. Date a boy who travels because he’s not blinded by a single goal but enlivened by many. You might find him in an airport or at a […]

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”?

Mr. Mulberry

I am one of those unusual anomalies you find when thinking of political and ideological combinations: a male feminist. I proudly follow and support feminist voices, organisations, individuals and legislation in Britain, as well as the international feminist movements (such as increasing awareness of the Republican Party’s war on women, a literal and mainstream example of the inherent misogyny of […]

A Grain of Salt in the Sahara

We’ve been torturing each other over religious doctrines and gods, skin colors and political opinions. Just think about it, we’ve even been killing each other over love!

To My 7th Grade Self…

Maybe there’s something to this.  Last week, I did a bit of “time-traveling”.  Almost simultaneously, there was a powerful video released called “To My 7th Grade Self”.  Brilliant idea!  If only we could.

Asperger’s Syndrome and Being Bullied

There was a very sobering video posted today on the facebook blog page, courtesy of Stop Teenage Suicide and Wipeout Homophobia on Facebook.  Sobering because it was a mother telling how her 5-year-old son had been bullied to the point where he wanted to die.  Five years old!!!  There can’t be a more resounding wake-up call than that.

The Child You Love. Period. Full Stop.

Two weeks ago, I posted the tragic story of Martha, which was based on the real world. Here is the same story, which starts the same way, but ends very differently. This version of the story is based on the real world, too, at least the world we devoutly wish to provide for our most vulnerable population, our children. Please […]
