I Started This Blog 15 Years Ago as a Passive-Aggressive Weapon.

One of my favorite things about blogging is when people figure out that I am passive-aggressively sending them secret messages in the guise of a blog post. This happens when I post something that strikes close to home. They don’t give me the benefit of the doubt to be a reasonably decent observer of human […]

A blog as a shared space of issues. The Post-Gazette explores this blog.

A few weeks ago, I had coffee with Diana Nelson Jones for what I thought would be a brief mention in the Post-Gazette about the blog’s nomination for a GLAAD Media Award. The award will be presented this Thursday. Turns out that article was more extensive and expansive than I thought. She called people and […]
