who says i was thinking?

I have another super important anniversary coming up. I tell the story of how Celes and I met and our first date pretty often. It was even an episode of the podcast a long time ago. But I’ve never actually featured her voice before. I wondered if she remembers things the way I do. We have a very serious disagreement on a super important point of fact. Did I ask her if she liked sausage gravy before I made it for dinner for her that night? I have receipts…

identity and boundaries and dating, oh my!

A few months ago, I did an Ask Callie episode, where folks sent in questions to get advice on things they were struggling with in their lives. I thought it was a good thing and got lots of positive feedback, so I decided to do one again. For future episodes, shoot an email to callie@queersplaining.com

10-8: how scared should we be?

Some important stuff is happening at The United States Supreme Court on October 8th. The question: does the 1964 Civil Rights act protect LGBTQ folks from employment discrimination. Lots of folks are pretty nervous, and I am too.

So I talked to an attorney who specializes in this sort of thing and asked her what she thought. Her surprising take is that she thinks we’ll win. Listen to find out what she thinks might happen.

Ashton P Woods – what about today?

Ashton P Woods is a man with a lot going on and a lot to say. He was good enough to give me some of his time when we were at Skepticon together.

what if they disagree?

This past weekend, I had the privilege of attending Skepticon in St Louis. Among other awesome things that happened, I moderated a panel called “What if They Disagree?”

How do we handle it when there seems to be an internal disagreement among a marginalized group. What is our place as allies in trying to advance the causes of racial justice, gender justice, and so on, when we’re confronted with conflicting views from inside those groups. There is right and wrong, but no group is a monolith. Its a difficult question, and one we tried to tackle in this panel discussion.
