I agree, postmodernism is entirely useless. At least Radical Feminism has a passionatre logic to it and while I may not abide or agree with all aspects of it, its a philosophy and politics that makes total sense to me for my liberation and thst of all womonkind!!!And the preservation and protection of Mother Earth.

I have always had definite opinions, I respect people who do who can back them.up with facts and logic. I dont trust people who don’t. All too wishy washy, and easily persuaded and manipulated.

“After doing some reading in postmodern theoretical texts, several things about the theory suddenly struck me as incongruous. I have been trying to see not just what postmodern theorists say about their theory, but more importantly, how postmodern theory functions in the world–what are the effects of adopting postmodern thinking and theorizing. What became clear to me after some reading was that the overarching effect of postmodernism is to silence thinking and speaking, both personally and politically. I am aware that this is a rather outrageous statement given the attention postmodern theory pays to privileging the voices of

marginalized people, to giving voice to those previously unheard, and to investigating the silences embedded in the dominant discourse (to sling a little postmodern verbiage myself). However, in a deep reading of how postmodern theory functions…

And our marriage becane legal Nationwide!!

Of the 196 countries that exist in the world right now, only 23 of them fully recognise homosexuality and practices same-sex marriage and adoption rights, and around 20 have transgender or transsexual rights in their legislation.

If that number sounds satisfactory to you, here is another piece of information. In around 72 countries in the world, homosexuality is still illegal, a dozen where it can lead to imprisonment and about eight nations where it is punished with death penalty.

All the other countries on that list are either trying their best to keep the LGBT community suppressed and discriminated, or are being silent and doing nothing to make the situation any better.

Like the great South African anti-apartheid social activist Desmond Tutu said:

“If you are neutral on situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”

But the silver lining is, the situation is better than…

I like the Gilbert Baker Flag and remember when it was originally flown in SF. It still.is every Pride.

The Rainbow Pride Flag has been a representative of the LGBTQ community for years now. Every pride parade or pride festival is dotted with numerous rainbow flags, and the same shades and pattern is used on banners, placards, posters and sometimes even dresses.

LGBT events are bright affairs and the rainbow flag perfectly exhibits the colorfulness and vivid diversity of the community and its people. But many people have no idea about the flag’s origin or history.

The flag was originally designed and created by an ex-army man from Kansas – a Gilbert Baker, who taught himself to sew as an option of earning bread after his honorable discharge from the US Army. Baker was challenged by Harvey Milk, an influential gay political leader and LGBT rights activist to come up with a symbol of pride and diversity for the gay community.

Far more Lesbians have Labryis, NOT Black triangle tattoos since Labryises denote our power as Amazon Warriors and Liberation. The Black triangle depicts our oppression. BOTH are depicted on the purple Lesbian flag!!

The LGBT community as a whole has derived and adopted various signs, symbols and colour codes for flags from different sources. The sources can be historical, cultural, academic or a social practice from the past.

These symbols were primarily used for self-identification as well as a display of unity, allegiance and support among the group. But these chosen symbols or colours were more than mere signs. Just like a country’s flag or national anthem gives its citizens a sense of integration, they gave the LGBT community a sense of belongingness.

The most famous representative of the LGBT community is the rainbow flag. You can read about its history and significance here: The Story of the Rainbow Flag

But there are many more with equally important past and importance.

One of the oldest of symbols to mark the LGBT people is the pink triangle…

A new essay from Anonymous Sister:

butch_fb.jpgSHAMING THE BUTCHES

If I hadn’t been shamed and judged by the following people, I wouldn’t have wasted any time hating myself for being butch: parents, peers, friends, teachers, therapists, siblings, aunts, grandmothers, cousins, neighbours, co-workers, androgynous lesbians, coaches, physicians.

I think the war with my parents began at 2 years of age. I crawled into my father’s closet and came out in one of his po’boy hats then tried to grab his size 11 shoes and fit my feet into them. I wanted his briefcase, too. I’d crawl around and drag it with me until my exasperated mother would retrieve it and place it out of my reach. I was defining my butch style even then. But they’d have none of it. Years later, my father on his deathbed said to me, “you weren’t like the other little girls. You had crushes on…
