Sshhhh….

Can’t talk. Reading. I just got my copy of Harry Potter (I ordered it from the U.K. to get the edition that’s not translated into American English — how nerdy is that?), and it just arrived today. So I’m taking a brief blog break while I geek out. See you in a few days — …

One In Seven: Why Civil Unions Aren’t Enough

There are plenty of reasons why civil unions really aren’t equal to marriage — even if the rights and responsibilities spelled out in a state’s civil union law are identical to marriage in every way. There are legal reasons why they’re not equal — marriage is recognized in every state and indeed every country, while …

And the Winner Is…

And the winner is… Thank you all so much for your feedback on the pictures! I didn’t see anything like consensus on one image that clearly stood out from the rest — which was, in fact, useful information. The only opinions on which there was anything even resembling consensus were (a) that the “scary” picture …

Carnival Time: Humanist Symposium #5 and Carnival of the Godless #71

Two atheist carnivals up today: Humanist Symposium #5 is up at The Green Atheist. If you want to read good atheist blogging that’s positive about atheism instead of being critical of religion, this carnival’s theme is exactly that.

Not Going There: The Blowfish Blog

Family members and others who don’t want to read that, now would be a good time to disembark. I have a new piece up on the Blowfish Blog. It’s called Not Going There, …

Two Reader Polls: Pictures, and HTML?

Hi, y’all. I’m thinking of making a couple of changes to my blog setup, and I wanted to poll my readers on it before I do. First: I’m thinking of changing the photo of me at the top of the blog to a different one. I do like the tricorn picture, it’s one of my …

Carnival of Feminists #43

The Carnival of Feminists #43 went up today, with a great collection of feminist blogging. This is the first time I’ve been in this carnival, and I feel a little silly that my debut wasn’t my piece on hate crime laws or sex education or even Christopher Hitchens, but my silly little piece on Angelina …

“A price I was willing to pay”: Hard Porn, Sex Work, and Consent

This is one of the smartest, most thoughtful things I’ve read lately about sex — not just porn or SM, but sex — and I wanted to call y’all’s attention to it and talk about it a little. It’s by spanking model Adele Haze (I don’t know why spanking models are called models instead of …

Mighty Real: A Review of “9 Songs”

I was digging through my archives the other day, came across this, and was extremely entertained by it. I think I’m the only film critic on the face of the planet who actually sort of liked “9 Songs.” I may be the only sentient being on the face of the planet who actually sort of …
