I clearly haven't been blogging much lately, but have been collecting a few things that I keep meaning to share with my Bilerico family. Below are a few gender related things that have been in my "blog ideas" folder for a while.

  • A collection of online essays called Beyond Masculinity: Essays by Queer Men on Gender and Politics is up and available online. It is a great collection and one of the contributors was my fellow Antioch College Student (Solis). Check out this collection and be sure to spread the word.
  • A great online essay about abortion and anti-choice women's relationship with what they claim to detest and protest.
  • A Virginia groom passes as a bride and could face charges for it. This one has it all -- some gender issues and same-sex marriage all wrapped into one.

Let me know what you think about the stories in the comments. I am particularly interested in hearing people's thoughts about the essay collection.

I've not had the opportunity to get into the essays of Beyond Masculinity in depth, but the few I skimmed seemed really good and this is a resource worth sharing. Thanks.

I really liked the "Beyond Bride and Groom" link. That blog is awesome. I should RSS it. *giggles*
