The Preamble:

Sustainably globally gay / we need more NOW / socially-conscious progressive group-think / openness & tolerance of diversity in perversity / justice for more more more gay gay gay / it’s progress it’s now its queer-friendly because its sustainably globally gay / when gay gets gayer the queering gets clearer / so  start the conversation now about LGBT1A9.ZLX / inclusion through cluelessness in transparent openness / by the way— go GENDERFLUID / before homosexuality queers the queerness of the ongoing conversation / celebrate queerness, OK ?

The Monologue:

I choose to live life gay. More than that—the life of a gay man who has transitioned to woman, a LESBIAN woman. Therefore, I am a man choosing to live as a woman who desires other women. But I actually am a man. At least, I was a man. So, I am an ex-man who desires women (although I am a homosexual transitioned to female Lesbian). Therefore we need to talk about why I, as an ex-hetero, ex-man find myself oppressed by a gender-rigid society that would deny me my right to live as a woman who desires other women and so invert my original heterosexuality, and I am self-oppressed by this inversion. Only in transitioning to homo-hetero paradoxical heterodoxy can I make sense to myself, and therefore prove that God is wrong and that gender is mine to choose and to define. Because this is about ME (and my sexuality . . .)

The Conclusion :

  This world cannot get QUEER enough FAST enough for me . . .  and for my poetry.

Name your alter-ego, and describe him/her in detail. Then write in your alter-ego’s voice.

Pride Month is like SO almost OVER ♥ omg ♥♥♥ lol☻

Plumed Serpent/Fabled Phoenix/Rare Black Swan:
Let Poetry now shoot you from the sky;
Your sin, though trendy, shall no more rage on . . .
They’ll see you’re just a Dodo by and by.

You puffed and fanned, a dazzling Peacock Star.
It’s high time you descended here to earth.
We see you for the Emu that you are:
Your gender, like your sex—assigned at birth.  



Ex-Brit: America has Muslim Problem

Milo Yiannopoulos quotes De Tocqueville
in response to Orlando:

America has a Muslim problem. Notice my wording carefully here. It isn’t a radical Muslim problem. It isn’t an ISIS problem, an Al Qaeda problem, a Taliban problem, or any of the Muslim terror groups that have sprung up in 2016. The terror attack on Saturday is an expression of mainstream Muslim values.

Barack Obama,The “leader of the free world” is too scared to say this.

In fact I have already referenced Islam both mainstream and radical in reference to this terror attack more often than Obama, who didn’t mention it at all.

I like to imagine President Obama on “Wheel of Fortune” sweating bullets over “Radical Islam” with only a letter or two missing. I think he’d say “I’d like to buy a vowel” or if his teleprompter is broken, just “I uh uh uh uh uh.”

Following Obama’s lead, Hillary Clinton has put out the exact statement we’d expect. Islam is not our enemy, it is a religion of peace, blah blah blah. Forgive me if I think her speechwriters are imams from Saudi Arabia.

The Left won’t blame Islam

Alarmingly, prominent liberals and homosexuals have fallen right in line.
They are blaming rifles, the NRA, masculinity, video games —
anything but Islam.
