CHEERS & JEERS: Corvallis’ Sexual Mores, Independence Derp
OBVIOUS CHEER for the statewide unmasking. WE WAIT WITH BATED BREATH, cuz only time will tell if going fully nekkid in the face was a good idea… Until then, happy dance for seeing smiles.
JEERS and a call to the Gazette-Times to cut a syndicated icon. Dear Abby, quite arguably an LGBTQ ally, has however, historically, taken a dim view of poly folk — a bent fully displayed in this Wednesday’s column. Here’s the skinny… the request for advice came from a grandma whose adult daughter has a husband and a boyfriend and all of the adults at said daughter’s house are hunky dory but… Abs advises the hyperbolic granny to seek custody of daughter’s children because… and wait for it… the granny SAYS one kiddo is terrified of mom’s boyfriend. Weirdly, the Abster jumps to the possibility of molestation… with no questions asked. Sooo, just wow, holy crap, and moving on…
CHEERS to the mockumentary series Poly People, it’s hilarious, and who are we kidding, we can hardly wait for the hate mail because we said so. For the rest of you, we’d recommend popcorn for this five star funny freebie, but mama says don’t laugh so stinking hard with your mouth full.
CHEERS to a pithy and on-point Oregon Wild. Their analysis of this year’s legislative session is a worthy read from a worthy org… and like… you should click here, and read it… we’ll be here when you get back, we promise.
EPILOGUE: The Declaration of Independence in its condemnation of the King, refers to America’s indigenous people, stating, “He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.” Bringing this up just before July 4th… Sorry not sorry.
