Out of the box and into the bookstore! My book is now available on Amazon.com. If you live in the Bay, you can also find it at Pegasus Books in Rockridge (Oakland) or the one in downtown Berkeley.

Meet Television's Groundbreaking Intersex Character

fcyeah:

This is exciting representation for intersex people in mainstream TV :)

Fun fact! Trans and nonbinary people who choose not to go on hormones, get surgery, etc. are still totally valid! Nonbinary people who choose not to present as “androgynous” are still totally valid! Binary trans people who choose not to present traditionally feminine or masculine based on their gender are still totally valid!

Stop policing everyone’s identity. It isn’t difficult.

Gay people don’t just want to see queer characters on television, we want to see them doing interesting things and facing challenges other than the bullying and coming-out narratives that have historically made up the bulk of television’s LGBT content. We long for nuanced personalities. We crave updated depictions of family life in a nation where more than half of us can legally marry and more and more of us are raising children. We want to be surprised and amused and impressed by the lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, and trans characters who show up on our televisions and tablets and smartphones. We don’t want to count them.

Morning guys. I hope you remember today that if you slip up you can restart your day at any time. You don’t have to wait til the next day to start over. Just sit down, breathe for a few minutes, and start again. 

I like this. I really like this.

Reading this everyday for the weeks to come.
