    that one should remember is that we do usually have sexuality.  Or would like to.

    Of whatever flavor. I dabbled in sex-work in my younger years, and one of the big lessons I got was that the pursuit of a satisfying sex-life is like the pursuit of happiness in the Constitution. I "dated" people who were socially awkward, or who thought what they wanted was "weird" (Yes, some of them were correct.) or otherwise not acceptable in the majority world.

    Know what? The majority world sucks. Everyone has a right to have meaningful sex. (And, BTW, everyone pays for sex in some way or another.) Of course, this includes trans-people. I don't know, maybe I'm spoiled because I live near San Francisco. Armistead Maupin said this was the town where "the love that dare not speak it's name hardly ever shuts up". Or maybe it's just because I'm bisexual; I once heard myself interrupting a transitioning person with, "Hey, whatever, take off your clothes and surprise me."  Had no idea she was transitioning, then she did surprise me, then again, when she was someone who kept enough sourdough starter around to make the World's-Best-Waffles in the morning. (Any Lesbians in Portland who get great sourdough waffles in the morning, please email me. I'll pay top dollar for a starter, and her recipe.)

    Sorry, what was I saying? Oh, right, everyone has the right to get laid. For my money, there should be a whole lot of people out there willing to say, "hey, take off your clothes and surprise me."

    Religion: Treat it like your penis. Don't show it off in public, and don't shove it down your children's throats.
