Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie. After that I'll be working through a big stack of books that I accumulated as birthday presents recently.

What did you think? I'm a big Rushdie fan but that wasn't one of my favourites.

Are Gustaf and Big Daddy TX coming out here?

Huh? He came out before I'm pretty sure but I've no idea where you see coming out in my two posts. One can have gay friends and support the right to sexual freedom without being gay oneself. Tongue

Oh sure, but it looks like you were trying to "get it out" so to speak.

I honestly have no idea what you're talking about. I made a comment on the coming out process, linking what people were saying here to what my friend went through. Then I added a statement of support for people who are gay. What in that would imply that I'm gay myself?

Musically I tend to like McCartney songs more than Lennon songs, on average. Personality-wise I really dislike Lennon. So I go with McCartney. Still like all of them a lot, of course.

I hope Obama does the right thing and drones him before he leaves office.

Why on Earth would Obama do that to such a strong progressive voice?

Massive FF. Hilarious, utter f[inks]ing genius, and a great fighter for progressive causes.

Family Guy tends massively chauvinistic and frequently degrading to women.  I know he doesnt write most of it but he isnt really progressive at core.

So then opebo isn't a progressive?

Of [Inks]ing course opebo wasn't in any meaningful sense 'progressive'.

Opebo was explicitly anti-progressive. Wanting a return to monarchy is about as regressive as one can imagine.

For the record, I read both the interview with Söder and the follow-up interview with him in Aftonbladet where he defends himself and the man is a nasty piece of work. If I was wearing a kippa and met him in a dark alley I'd be scared for my life.

Saying his words were twisted is odd when he got to read the interview before publishing and validated what was said. When defending himself he repeats the statement that Jews aren't Swedes.

These guys give me the shivers. :/

I oppose homophobia even when it is used against vile people.

That sounds like the language of a pearl-clutching prude. I guess gay men can't be expected to have as thick skin as women, right?

It's kind of sad that a poster with the name RIP Mechaman would miss out on both Ireland and general Catholicism in this kind of poll.

It's interesting to hear this boyfriend thing, because it was the same with my first gay friend. He came out via saying that he had a boyfriend and after that relationship ended did not talk much about his orientation for quite a while. I can see how it would make the process easier so it makes sense but I didn't know it might be that general.

Also, I realized that this is not as much a given in the American context so I neglected it, but I of course echo all the supportive comments here to those of you facing bigotry about your orientation.

When I was younger and more boxed in I may have felt uncomfortable talking about gay sex. Having matured and having made close gay friends I don't care anymore though.

But given the realities of the world it's up to everyone to decide how open they want to be about it. It doesn't really come up necessarily unless you're close to someone.

Too much of using pseudo-science mumbo-jumbo as a deus ex machina plot device. And too much preachy sentimentality. Probably my least favourite Nolan movie.

Women are far more attracted to power and wealth than they are to a nice face and a ripped body.

Anna Kinberg Batra has been officially nominated as new M-leader. Obviously just a formality by now.

Löfven said they will campaign for a change in government. Amusing misstep. He also called SD neo-fascist but then failed to define fascism when asked about it (he rambled something about how fascists respect democracy).

In Skåne, amusingly, the Red-Greens faced a similar problem as nationally but solved it by voting for the SD budget.

I don't normally support petitions, but this seems like a nice gesture, so why not.

Hooray for males on internet arguing about what feminists want under the sheets.


I recognize that different women want different things under different circumstances because they are different people. Others seem to take another view, thinking that sex, and indeed any facet of life remotely related to interaction with the opposite sex, must be traumatic for all women in all contexts because Women Are Very Fragile. If one of these people wants to dodge his own very problematic (and frankly, misogynistic) position and instead focus on ad hominems, that's his prerogative.

I think that if you understood feminism better you might realize that we kind of oppose abusing people more generally. Fragile or not. Tongue

Which do you guys think is worse: horrible wood puns or polls objectifying women? Personally, I'm stumped.

I thought the puns got a sort of woody quality to them.

Why on Earth are people still trying to advice him? He's not grateful for your warnings anyway since he thinks it is mean not to encourage his suicide.
