  • Couple quick things come to mind — First, Tim Gunn is almost exclusively asked about women’s fashion. His role on Project Runway didn’t really do anything for his association with men’s fashions and so all he’s ever usually asked about is women’s fashion senses. The only time I can think of is when he was [...]

  • gular wrote a new blog post: Prop 8 vs DOMA decisions — why this is a conflict   4 years, 2 months ago · View

    Proposition 8 has just been struck down at about the same time (in judicial terms) as the States Rights clause in the Constitution was used to strike down part of the Defense of Marriage Act in regards to Massachusetts gay couples.  They’re both resounding, strong and encouraging victories for gay rights, but they conflict and [...]

  • gular commented on the blog post The Trouble With “Females”   4 years, 2 months ago · View

    That is entirely spot on. I think in the same lines you do. “Females” being the ungendered term for “people with female bodies” being used in that way does strip them of their humanity. Is there a stylebook (Chicago or MLA; I know APA frowns upon usage of females in this way) reasoning for this [...]

  • gular wrote a new blog post: Tyra Banks Almost Helps   5 years, 5 months ago · View

    This inspired this post. It’s a four-clip post from Tyra Bank’s talk show, and the issue is same-sex marriage. I apologize because I wouldn’t know where to look for a transcript for those here who can’t hear. I don’t know what network/production company owns her show to track one down. :-( If someone could help with [...]

    I saw this on CNN the other day and have been thinking about posting it. With Jay Smooth’s blog on the front page (we keep overlapping… weird), I think it’s impetus enough for me to post. Now, on the Jay Smooth post, I did write that I do think Miss California is right to be able [...]

  • gular wrote a new blog post: Update on “Oversensitive”!   5 years, 8 months ago · View

    I had posted last week about the Date Auction my alma mater was putting on (sidenote: unfortunately, I’m not in MN) and I *do* have a rather pleasing update! I was contact today by a writer for the school’s independent newspaper about my comments and thoughts on the date auction.  Any thoughts? I’m going to post my answers here; [...]

  • gular wrote a new blog post: My Feelings on Abortion   5 years, 8 months ago · View

    There have been a lot of posts on abortion with Roe vs. Wade turning 36 in the past couple days.  I thought I’d add to the pile on and throw in my own thoughts. My Sophomore year in college, I went to the March for Women’s Lives in Washington, DC.  I had always believed strongly in any [...]

  • gular wrote a new blog post: Thoughts on Day without a Gay   5 years, 10 months ago · View

    I’ve been thinking a lot about gay rights, gay visibility and the "normalization" (forgive the term) of gay culture into mainstream culture since Prop 8 passed.  It’s brought me to a bunch of different ideas about how the rights movement stands for GLBT Americans and what can be done to really help what’s going on in [...]
