One thing that is cool about sexual minorities is that we are always coming up with like new identities (can I get a "LGBTSTTQQIBDSMGNC"??). This is especially excellent for people like me and Judith (Jack? idk) Halberstam who suffer from really severe taxonomic impulses. One thing that is really funny is when ppl come up with new modes of identification and I totally don't take them seriously! LOL! But according to the innarwebs, G0Y IS NOW A MEME.
Also OMG AJ has been waiting for someone to write this post for a LONG ASS TIME. (It is a critique of Muslim women in comics focusing on Sooraya Qadir, otherwise known as "Dust," the niqab-clad mutant youth who first joined the Marvel universe during Grant Morrison's runon New X-Men.) One thing AJ feels the article does not sufficiently stress however
is how fucking cool it is that Dust can like instantly strip all the flesh off of your bones by turning herself into a wicked sandstorm. In the subject of "uber pwnage" AJ is happy to award Dust with a final grade of EPIC WIN.
In other news, here is an example of why its dumb when liberals are like "why don't we just give cops tasers" because they think it will solve the problems.
Gawker endeavors an answer to AJ's age-old question: wtf is the deal with the MSM not caring about LinRon???
WAFL award: Park Slope parents are all like: Who do they think we are, people of color or something?
There are totally some raccoons in Brooklyn and other parts of the city too! They are definitely adorable and potentially a public health threat.
Also you definitely want to hear Racialicious weigh in on Logo's new(ish) show Gimme Sugar. Logo, lol. oh u.
And finally, AJ can think of no better way to leave his readers than with the words of this young warrior poet, for truly her work gives new meaning to our understanding of the erotic as power. Read poem here plz.
