Lazy Sunday: Got Monsters

First of all, a quick note: sorry there was no recap yesterday. I just figured since the week had so few posts (again… -sigh-) that it wasn’t really worth sacrificing a greatly needed night away from the blaggy-blegs. I’ll recap this past week’s posts when I do the recap this coming Saturday. Moving along to this week’s video…

I feel adding much in the way of commentary would spoil this, but for the sake of context, this is from Mina Caputo, singer of the metal band Life Of Agony, who back in the summer publicly revealed she was transitioning. This song and video’s release predates her coming out.

Slightly NSFW, albeit not egregiously so.

In the words of an e-friend of mine “That’s not subtext. That’s text.”

And links…

The Transgender Housing Network, where you can make a post describing yourself as a safe temporary place for trans people on a budget to stay while traveling (or during emergencies). Finding safe housing or shelter is one of the most serious difficulties and important daily-life / basic need issues that trans people face, particularly since our lives can often be quite suddenly destabilized. So if you’re trans-friendly, and have a comfy couch or futon or fold-out, and are genuinely NOT creepy or chasery, please go ahead, sign up, and help some trans folk out! Me and my roommate have discussed this and decided to do it ourselves. :)

Canadian Forces threaten to cut viagra and transgender care from their health plan for service members.

Black Dahlia Parton steps up, offering to do a better job of the Dan Savage thing than Dan Savage does, and NOT be so consistently harmful towards those queer folk who fall outside their own respective letters of the alphabet soup.

Quick reminder, by the way, in case you’d forgotten (as if…LOL): the cis-run media, and Chloe Sevigny, are horrible.

And in case you’d forgotten (just as unlikely), so is The National Post.

Oh yeah, and Glee is horrible too. Everything is horrible! Yay!

Hey, remember that time they refused to use the word “transsexual” in their Rocky Horror episode? YEAH GRUES, WATCHING GLEE MAKES YOU TOTALLY QUEER-FRIENDLY.

Anyway,

Some HBSer / TS Seperatist pickets GLAAD for their allegedly “militant transgenderist agenda”. The irony almost gave me an aneurysm in my soul. Something I don’t even have.

Adding monsters to thrift store paintings. (I used to work in a Goodwill, so this reaches right down and tickles the happy places in the secret well-spring of my being. Which I also don’t actually have)

And finally, though it’s not exactly news, Sarah Moglia is totally NOT horrible.
