Caitlyn: I'M JUST TRYING TO DO MY BEST Comments (0)

Adv1083_cover_x750d

I may change my mind when she endorses Donald Trump (I can't get over her Republicanism), but I do think LGBT people are unnecessarily harsh toward Caitlyn Jenner. She's made some blunders, but she has shown a willingness to listen to and absorb criticism—thick, she ain't. And her show is filled with useful teachable moments, whereas it could easily have been pure fluff.

Matthew Breen's sit-down with her for The Advocate cover bears out my take on her:

The media has kind of labeled me as the spokesperson for the trans community. That is not the case. I am only a spokesperson for my own journey. After that, I know nothing. Am I learning a lot? Absolutely ... I’m just trying to do my best, that’s all.

She says about her appearance (for which she's taken heat, especially when joking about how looking the part is the hardest part of being trans):

Kimberly [Kardashian West] says, ‘If you do go out, you’ve got to rock it, baby!’ You cannot let [the paparazzi] get that picture. They’ll take a picture of you with no makeup on, lousy outfit—and they’ll use it forever. You’ll never get rid of it. Kim’s very good at that stuff. It does take a little bit more work if you do go out. You’ve got to at least look good, at least the best you can ... But there’s more to life and womanhood than just that. And those are things I’m learning; I’m trying to read up on it. I’m trying to understand it because it’s all new to me.

Read the rest of Breen's thoughtful story, illustrated with images by Ryan Pfluger, here.

Supreme Confidence: ADVOCATE Lauds SCOTUS As Person(s) Of The Year Comments (0)

Adv1082_coverx750d

Advocate has made its choice for Person of the Year, and it turns out to be People: Anthony Kennedy and the Justices of the Supreme Court.

From its piece:

The ruling was 5–4, with a sharp, bitter split between the majority and the dissenters. But in a sense, every justice played a role in bringing constitutional marriage equality to a reality.

Start with Justice Anthony Kennedy, author of the court’s quartet of gay rights opinions. Kennedy grew up in the shadow of the great liberal Chief Justice Earl Warren, a Kennedy family friend during his days as California governor. Kennedy may side more frequently with the court’s conservative bloc — but on issues of constitutional dignity, he swings to the left. In a sense, Kennedy has been writing his way toward Obergefell since 1996, when he held in Romer v. Evans that the Constitution bars legislation based on “animus” against gays. From that point on, constitutional marriage equality was inevitable. Kennedy just had to wait for the country to catch up to the court.

Kennedy’s colleagues in the majority may have been silent on decision day, but each contributed to Obergefell in vital ways. Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan grilled Michigan’s solicitor general at oral arguments, leading him to assert, inanely, that marriage doesn’t bestow dignity. Justice Stephen Breyer joined in, demanding to know why Michigan refused to recognize same-sex unions when marriage itself is a constitutionally protected “fundamental right.” (The “equal dignity” of gay people and the “fundamental right” of marriage comprised the bulk of Kennedy’s opinion.) And Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg set the stage for Obergefell in a 2010 case, writing that, in the context of sexual orientation, “our decisions have declined to distinguish between status and conduct.” Being gay, in other words, is more than just having gay sex: It is an identity, one which finds protection under the Constitution.

The court’s conservatives also contributed to Obergefell’s power, albeit inadvertently. The four dissenters were so outraged by Kennedy’s decision that they threw a temper tantrum, with each justice penning his own opinion. Their strategy may have been to drown out the majority opinion, weighing it down with objections until it seemed illegitimate. But this ploy backfired. The cacophony of complaints drowned each other out, making all four justices’ rambling counterarguments easy to ignore.

3 eggs, spinach, onions, sweet potatoes, tomato, bulletproof coffee, sunshine and nerdy podcasts. I've been predominately following the Paleo diet since 2009 before I even got into Crossfit. A few minor hacks (grassfed butter, lots of fats). Of course there are some cheat days/nacho benders but for the most part it's easy to follow. It's tasty as hell and I feel it works well for my body. I eat meats, good fats, heaps of veggies, nuts and a bit a of fruit here and there. Nothing in my fridge has a nutrition label on it. If it does it has one ingredient: (I do use a bit of siracha I'll admit) Throw away the sugar. Throw away boxed foods. If it says "low fat" it's probably just chemicals and sugar so throw that out too. Eat foods that grow. Not foods that are produced. Easy. Just do it. #humpday #indolife #thetruefreedommovement #truefreedom #beardgang #beepic #getstrong #eatwell #tattoos #Bali #backinbali #menandcoffee

He Is A Gay American Comments (0)

April May 2015 - Larry Kramer HI

Larry Kramer is back with his new novel, The American People: Volume 1—Search for My Heart. He's an inspirational and terrifying figure, and his story of how and why he wrote this novel (started in 1975, when I was in first grade) is fascinating:

“Oh, I don’t know. Why does every gay writer start out? To write his Proust? And so I wrote my Proust. The title comes from that speech by Reagan which really did hit me, where I knew he was talking about ‘the American people,’ and I know that I was not part of that crowed that he was talking about. It was so obvious. There has never been any history book written where the gay people have been in history since the beginning. It’s ridiculous to think that we haven’t been here forever.”

Even if Kramer rubs you the wrong way—and he shouldn't—you gotta give him that.
