Today I was storekeeping, which at that moment included surfing the internet. I came upon a Tweet by Cecily Walker, a Black woman I met through a technology panel back in the day. She was on her way to the market this afternoon, on this beautiful crisp and sunny day. Turns out, that in the

I would wish for any of us who have not been steeped in race theory (like medical students being steeped in anatomy) to step gently away from the public discussion of race and do some solid reading on the topic. (Heck, even if we
Recently the Portland Eagle bar booked an act: a white cis-male drag artist who does a character called Shirley Q Liquor in blackface, with accompanying racial stereotypes.

Gotta Hand it To You explores the joy of using the SM toy that’s always at hand — your own body.
The hands, fists, elbows, knees, knuckles and feet of the top are capable of an astonishing range of sensation, from sting, slap & thud,
to the fireworks of pressure points, while doing everything from face slapping to ass-kicking.
Discuss tips and tricks, or experience any of these sensations for yourself.

I’ve had the great pleasure to be part of the leather event organizing team Canadian Mayhem (oft named Bride of Pride) since we gave our little continuing series of parties a name and kicked it into being back in 2006.

Go here. Be gentle with each other: Once Bitten…
I’m so sad to say that my beloved cat Random died last night, sometime before I got home from work. I found him near my desk chair, where (in one house or another) we’d spent countless hours together over the last 14 years. He’d been sick for some time, with thyroid, kidney and heart problems.
