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 …

Born This Way: A Skeptical Look At The Neurological Theory Of Gender Identity

Sorry, everyone! No posts today. I’m terribly, terribly exhausted, as a result of falling way behind on my schedule, overextending my commitments, and having a friend from Kelowna staying over. I need sleep! So here’s a repost from Skepchick- one that is in desperate need of a follow-up, as I no longer entirely agree with …

Debunking The COGIATI

I’m on vacation this week! This post originally appeared on Queereka. My first forays into the trans internet were back in the Fall of 2001, while I was having a particularly bad “episode” of dysphoria that led, for the first time in my life, to actually conducting extensive research into what transition entailed.

Bilaterally Gynandromorphic Chickens And Why I’m Not “Scientifically” Male


I’m on vacation this week! This post originally appeared at Skepchick. You know what this world needs more of? Misconceptions about transsexuality. Wait… I think I got that backwards. Right… there is absolutely no dearth whatsoever of misconceptions people have about transsexuality. Sometimes I feel like a sort of trans-advocate Sisyphus, perpetually pushing a boulder …

Transkeptuality: Gatekeeping And The Value Of Critical Thought

I’m on vacation this week! This post originally appeared at Skepchick. It was the very first bloggy thing I ever blogged! It’s kind of neat to look back and see how far I’ve come. An important, interesting, and increasingly common question in the contemporary skeptical community is to what extent should social concerns like sexism, …
