On The Year In Lesbians

This is a great article. It goes to show that the assimilationist queer isn't limited to the upper-middle-class white gay man and that it extends to its reach beyond the privileged gender. I hope to see some more radical moves (pro feminist, anti capitalist) in the future. I hope NYC sees some of that shift in the new mayor and his (former radical feminist lesbian) wife.

Go read O. Henry's "Gift of the Magi" (it's a good season for it, too!), and remember what the fuck irony is supposed to be.
