Denmark Wants You To Have Sex With Its Women!

The Danish tourism board has taken a certain non-traditional approach with attracting visitors to their fertile shores. In this video, Karen casually searches for the tourist father of her baby. She doesn’t remember his name, or really need anything from him; she simply wants to be able to identify a father for her baby. But don’t worry, potential baby-daddies, this lady is no slut. She knows you’re the father (once she finds you) because you are the only one she’s been with in two years. Keep reading »

Seeing My Transgender Roommate Transition Changed Me Too

There’s a certain amount of brouhaha amongst some evangelical Republicans over a minor presidential appointment in the Commerce Department. Amanda Simpson will perform a job for the public benefit that I can’t define. I’m pretty sure most of the American public doesn’t know what the Senior Technical Adviser for the Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security does. But, because she’s transgender, it’s prompted an associate dean at the extremely conservative Liberty University to propel himself into the media’s light to proclaim that, “This isn’t like appointing an African-American in order to try to provide diversity and right some kind of discriminatory wrong. This is about political correctness.”

Absurdly stupid. Because, of course, it should be no issue at all, because people are people, and work ought to go to the person whose experience best merits it. And stupidity compounded because I’m unsure how obstinately self-blinded someone must be to believe that transgendered people don’t face deep prejudice. The prejudice is dumb, as it is at all times, but especially so when directed at a scattered group with no agenda other than to fit in and be left alone. But I guess there’s always a learning curve. I had one.

The Weird Ways I Know It’s Christmas

This year, I’m doing something different and spending Christmas with my new husband. While I’m super excited for his next great stuffed french toast concoction, it does mean that the days leading up to the big shebang feel a lot different. In years past, there would be the long drive to Dead Coal Mining Town, PA across large swaths of land where the only music on the radio was country. Today, nestled safely away in my own apartment, I have to keep reminding myself that it is Christmas Eve. The tree isn’t doing the trick. All the strange cues are gone, and I’m missing … Keep reading »

A Christmas Miracle: The “It’s Always Sunny” Gang To Open A Real Bar In Philadelphia


My parents thought it was bad parenting to teach children to believe in invisible men that break and enter homes through chimneys once a year in tacky red suits to give overpriced gadgets to unappreciative children, but I think the gentlemen in red is entirely responsible for this. Mac and Dee of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” are opening a real bar in the City of Brotherly Love. I live here! And I’m going to go to Mac and Dee’s bar! Keep reading »

Missing Grandma’s Eggs On Christmas

I’m excited to be spending the holidays with my husband in our own apartment this year, but I’m nervous as well. Some things are familiar: we have the menorah next to the Christmas tree because of our jumbled-up religious backgrounds. Though, while the scent of pine needles and frying latkes are appropriately nostalgic, everything else will be new.
